Shopping for an off-road SUV that leaves an impression both in style and in off-road ruts? The Jeep lineup is the obvious choice for the market’s boldest and most terrain-capable vehicles. But when the choice comes between the unrelenting forces of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2021 Jeep Wrangler, which should you go with?
Before we get started, it’s worth noting that the Jeep Wrangler is available as either a 2-door SUV with four seats or a 4-door Wrangler Unlimited with seating for five. Since the latter is closer to the Grand Cherokee in size, that’s the model we’ve selected to use within the comparison table provided.
Both Jeep SUVs discussed are highly capable in their own right, but you can say that choosing between the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2021 Jeep Wrangler is about what kind of capability you really need.
The Wrangler Unlimited is an expert off-roader with exceptional 4x4 technology, ground clearance, and water fording, as well as removable doors and roof panels. There’s no denying that the Wrangler’s rock-crawling credentials are the best you’ll find from Jeep – though the Grand Cherokee is still among the best off-road SUVs in its class. And while the Grand Cherokee may be marginally less talented on these fronts, what you get back in engine performance, towing capacity, and on-road safety features may make it well worth the tradeoff depending on your lifestyle.
