It might not seem like it’s a fair comparison at all, but the only true competitor for the Jeep Wrangler when you’re considering the off-road prowess and performance is the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. This is as close as the luxury brand comes to being brought to the Wrangler level, which is still much greater than any other off-road vehicle. When the idea is to take on all challengers, this is the kind of lopsided battle you may see at times and have to discuss to review the results of these two models together.
The Jeep Wrangler has been around for a long time and has been the affordable choice for the off-road fun that’s desired when you want to head out on the trails in the vehicle you know will deliver you back to your starting point with ease. This incredible SUV has the high ground clearance, the short overhangs, and the solid axles to make sure you can roll over every obstacle and handle the challenges that the wilderness can offer when you’re ready to get out on the unexplored terrain to tackle and show off the way you want.
This SUV has removable doors and a rollback roof to allow you to play in the open air when you want to have the drive you want away from the pavement. If you purchase the Jeep Wrangler and don’t take it out on the trails, you’ve wasted your money. This SUV is harsh and difficult on the pavement, but its admired and engaging on the trails to make sure you can have the fun and active drive you’re looking for when you want to go out and have the fun in the sun that you’ve been ready to experience.
The Range Rover Evoque
When you choose this Land Rover model as the one you want to drive, it’s going to give you one thing the Jeep doesn’t. You’ll have a smooth ride on the roads to make this vehicle feel like a typical SUV that you normally see driving on a daily basis. This along with the comfort and quality features certainly add to the package that allows this SUV to be one you may want to drive and enjoy on the roads in your area, but it comes to you at a much higher price than the Wrangler.
The Evoque has the ability to hand the trails and makes it easy to get where you need to go when you engage the 4WD system and let it get to work. Land Rover has been a name that we’ve known can handle the drive and the challenge out in the wilderness for many years. This SUV can be had in the convertible model which allows you to have the sun beaming on you and enjoy the wilderness air as well, but most of the time you don’t see this SUV out on the trails at all.
