The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
4.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler manages to improve its abilities both on- and off-road without diluting its go-anywhere, do-anything appeal. The 2018 Nissan Frontier is a good, basic truck, but there are far more modern options for not too much more.
