The Jeep Wrangler has no direct rivals, not since the Nissan Xterra and Toyota FJ Cruiser hit the skids.
Ford’s Bronco and Chevy’s Blazer are on the comeback trail, but until then the competition comes down to vehicles like the Toyota 4Runner.
It’s more of a conventional SUV, but when properly equipped with the TRD off-road pack it could make a softer alternative to the Wrangler Unlimited, though it doesn't offer anything like removable tops or two-door models.
The other alternative is a compact pickup, and the Toyota Tacoma stands as an interesting alternative to the Wrangler.
In top TRD Pro Off-Road guise, it's the most off-road-oriented of the mid-size pickups and it has a more modern feature set—and, we're assuming, better safety.
Other mid-size trucks like the Nissan Frontier, Chevy Colorado, and GMC Canyon might be reasonable substitutes.
