2018 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2018 Toyota RAV4

Shopping for an SUV that can hold its own on Redding roads, while keeping you and your family comfortable? The 2018 Toyota RAV4 is a popular choice, but compared to the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, it’s missing some key features. Compare the Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota RAV4 below to find out what makes the new Wrangler the better pick!


Compare the Toyota RAV4 and Jeep Wrangler performance:

  • Engines: The Toyota RAV4 is offered with one 176-hp 2.5L inline-4 engine. The Jeep Wrangler, on the other hand, is available with a 270-hp 2.0L inline-4 or a 285-hp 3.6L V6.
  • Transmissions: The RAV4 comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission only. Again, the Wrangler gives you more options—a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic.

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 comes standard with front-wheel drive, but can be had with all-wheel drive. If you want all-terrain handling right off the bat, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler is the way to go. The Wrangler Sport and Sport S come standard with Command-Trac Part-Time 4WD. This system uses a NV241 GII transfer case to allocate power, and includes a 2:72:1 low range for rocky terrain around Yreka. Higher trims, such as the Wrangler Rubicon, get a 4:1 Rock-Trac HD Part-Time 4WD System.

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 has a starting MSRP of $24,660, while the 2018 Jeep Wrangler starts at $27,945 MSRP. You might think you’re getting a deal with the Toyota RAV4—until you compare features.

  • Keyless Go: With Keyless Go, you can start the engine by pressing on the brake—no need to fish for your keys.
  • 8-Speaker Sound System: The Toyota RAV4 comes standard with just six speakers, meaning you’ll enjoy your favorite tunes in higher quality inside the Jeep Wrangler.
