For The Jeep Wrangler is breathtaking off-road, and not too bad on it. The diesel engine makes it a realistic purchase.

Against The steering is vague, the seats a bit short on comfort and resale values are nowhere near a Land Rover Defender's.

The Jeep Wranglerstill lives up to its legendary status in the rough, but feels more civilised than a Land Rover Defender on-road.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

If we're talking ultimate off-roaders, the Jeep Wrangler is up there with the Land Rover Defender. The Wrangler, however, isn’t as compromised as the Defender on the Tarmac. Plus, buyers who want to make the most of their Jeep's off-road abilities can take advantage of Skills Days - where they are taught off-road driving skills - or Jeep Trips, where they join a party to venture off-road.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the engine to go for is the 2.8-litre diesel - it has reasonable grunt at low revs, which is perfect for off-road use. Don’t go anywhere near the 3.6 V6 petrol – it’ll cost an absolute bomb to run.

There are three trim levels, two body styles, various roof options, manual and automatic transmissions and two different all-wheel drive systems. On all counts, we’d recommend going for the cheapest.
