2011 Jeep Wrangler vs. Its Competition

With the disappearance of Hummer, and its H3, there are no real direct comparisons to the 2011 Jeep Wrangler.

The closest two vehicles are the Toyota FJ Cruiser and the Nissan Xterra.

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.
