2020 Jeep Wrangler vs 2020 Toyota RAV4

2020 Jeep Wrangler vs 2020 Toyota RAV4

The Jeep Wrangler and Toyota RAV4 have both been popular SUVs and often at the same time. Since they are both big names, each one has a loyal following, and each one gains more every year, but which has more value as an SUV? The Wrangler’s identity as an off-roading machine and the RAV4 being a more road-friendly vehicle may make comparing the two feel like comparing apples and oranges, but a closer look reveals that the RAV4, at the right trim level, aspires for the same versatility as the Wrangler. So then, which comes out on top? That question can only be answered by looking at the two vehicles closely.

This comparison uses the Sport S trim level of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler and the TRD Off-Road trim level of the 2020 Toyota RAV4.

Comparison Analysis

When it really comes down to it, the 2020 Toyota RAV4, even when designed to go off-road, just doesn’t compare to the rugged capability of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Sport S. What’s more, the Sport S isn’t even the highest trim level of the Wrangler, and the TRD Off-Road is the most expensive version of the newest RAV4. If you want an SUV to do anything more than just carry people and/or cargo, the choice is clear. For less money, the Wrangler Sport S can go further, climb higher, and even look more aggressive doing it.
