2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited vs. 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than in the Toyota FJ Cruiser. The Toyota FJ Cruiser offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota FJ Cruiser.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has the same turning radius as the Toyota FJ Cruiser, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.
