Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe than in the Lexus RX 350L. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus RX 350L.

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). Whether you pick the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe or the Lexus RX 350L, it's going to cost you about the same.

The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe is much higher than that for the Lexus RX 350L.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lexus RX 350L.
