2022 Jeep Wrangler vs. Its Competition

2022 Jeep Wrangler Willys with Xtreme Recon Package
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

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

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 Frontier is much less expensive, and has addressed lots of its shortcomings with a better body-on-frame design, a new interior, and new technology.

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.
