2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited vs. 2017 Toyota Highlander Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Highlander, with comparable head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander 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
The Toyota Highlander requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Highlander. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Toyota Highlander.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is much slimmer than the Toyota Highlander, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is slightly shorter than the Toyota Highlander, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and the Toyota Highlander are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Highlander, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Highlander is clearly the choice over the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Highlander.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Highlander. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has less cargo space than the Toyota Highlander, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Highlander.
