2021 Jeep Wrangler vs. Its Competition

2021 Jeep Wrangler
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Wrangler sits atop the hill of old-school off-roaders for now, but a challenger is coming.

The Ford Bronco has its sights square on the Wrangler—it even offers two- and four-door versions.

The Toyota 4Runner is there too, but it’s a little more “old” than “old-school” by now.

The Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee offer good off-road capability and better comfort, although the Wrangler has hardcore equipment if that’s a must.

The Frontier is much less expensive, and just as uncomfortable, but it’s a good place to start if money is short.
