Compare the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL and Wrangler JK

For some, the rugged and reliable Jeep Wrangler is the perfect fit, with rough-and-tumble styling, outstanding capability, and a penchant for adventure; for others, the Jeep Renegade is more in line with their needs, perfect for the urban adventurer who wants the capability for weekend excursions. Of course, there's more to dissect between these two Jeep brand siblings, so let's put them head-to-head, grille-to-grille, so you can see which one will best meet your needs.

The Jeep Renegade VS. the Jeep Wrangler | A Real "Choose Your Own Adventure" Story

  • Price Points: 2017 Jeep Wrangler = starting MSRP of $23,995, while the 2017 Jeep Renegade has a starting MSRP of $17,995. Those drivers shopping on a budget may want to consider the 2017 Jeep Renegade, as it starts at a lower price point.
  • Fuel Efficiency: Those who do a lot of highway driving might also appreciate the fuel economy of the 2017 Jeep Renegade over that of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler, with the former offering 24 mpg city/31 mpg highway, while the latter rumbles in with 17 mpg city/21 mpg highway. But don't let the numbers sour you to the Wrangler-it gains a lot from a little less fuel efficiency.
  • Off-Road Capability: What the 2017 Jeep Wrangler lacks in fuel economy, it truly makes up for in fortitude and capability. The 2017 Wrangler arrives standard with Command-Trac® Shift-on-the-Fly Part-Time 4WD, but if you're looking for 4WD in the 2017 Jeep Renegade, you'll have to elect for it, which can add a bit to the price tag.
  • Two-Door Adventure or Four?: The 2017 Jeep Wrangler is a two-door compact SUV, while the 2017 Jeep Renegade gives you the convenience of a four-door SUV design; the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited does bring four doors with it, but it adds to the price as well.
  • Take Your Top Off for Summer: Nothing lewd here-just the fact that the 2017 Jeep Wrangler can dress-down for summer by removing the soft or hard panels that make up the roof, and you can even remove the doors to let your free spirit fly! On the other hand, the 2017 Jeep Renegade can't take its top off, but it does offer available Jeep My Sky® Open Air Dual-Panel Roof, which can be removed to invite a little of the great outdoors in to sit with you in the great indoors. For city drivers, the Renegade's My Sky® solution often makes more sense than the completely topless Wrangler.
