2010 Jeep Wrangler vs. Its Competition

There's really no direct comparison with the 2010 Jeep Wrangler.

Overall, the Toyota FJ Cruiser is the Wrangler’s closest rival for pure style; it gets its retro design from the 1960s FJ, yet has modern components from the Toyota 4Runner that are a bit more road-friendly than those of the Wrangler.

The Nissan Xterra is a four-door sport-ute with a rugged look and off-road versions that offer some, but not all, the Wrangler's rocky-road prowess.

The Hummer H3 is actually a much larger vehicle and not as nimble for off-roading; it doesn't have the keep-it-basic feel of the Wrangler, either.
