Jeep Wrangler vs Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
It’s no secret that we’re huge Jeep fans at Ultimate Rides. You’d be hard pressed to find another used dealership as into Jeeps as we are in the entire Joliet, IL area! One thing we get a lot from prospective buyers is the question of whether to get the Jeep Wrangler or Wrangler Unlimited. Both of them are great vehicles, but they are different, so we’ve put together a Jeep Wrangler vs Jeep Wrangler Unlimited comparison.
The Jeep Wrangler is a bit smaller, which helps give it its distinct turn radius that its drivers absolutely love. This smaller size also means that if you’re into off-roading or rock crawling in a Jeep, you might have an easier time of maneuvering around. You may also find that the Jeep Wrangler is able to get into more difficult places because of its size.
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has its own set of advantages, too. With its increased size, comes a lot more room. If you’ve got full-sized passengers who will regularly be occupying the back seat, you might want to do them a favor and go with the Wrangler Unlimited. It also comes with more cargo space, as well as a slightly larger fuel tank.
