Compact SUVs like the Land Rover Defender1 and Jeep Wrangler can carry you safely across everything from muddy trails to wet or flooded roads. So, which one can you count on more for both tough drives and your daily commute?

Land Rover Parsippany finds out. With the return of this iconic Land Rover, we put this 2020 Land Rover Defender vs. Jeep Wrangler comparison together to help drivers in Parsippany, Mendham, and Morristown decide.

Land Rover Defender vs Jeep Wrangler Specs

The 2020 Land Rover Defender offers an exciting lineup of engines. There are two powertrains to choose from, starting with a 2.0L turbocharged Ingenium engine that gets up to 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The second option will be a 3.0L V6 that can produce up to 400 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque.

The Jeep Wrangler also offers two engines, however neither one offers nearly as much power. The strongest option is a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 that only gets up to 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Defender vs Wrangler: Rugged Design

The Land Rover Defender is designed to provide you with a capable drive while you're off-roading, as well as navigate streets and highways like a sports car. It makes this clear as soon as it pulls up. You'll instantly recognize the exterior. It shares elements of larger Land Rover and Range Rover SUVs.

While this gives it both credibility and a sleek, stylish design, it's also available in a few different sizes. Much like the original Land Rover Defender models the revived SUV will offer a lineup of vehicles titled the Land Rover Defender 90, 110, and 130. These will range from featuring one row of seats and two doors to room for up to five people and a pair of full-size rear doors

The Jeep Wrangler is also made to be versatile on all sorts of terrain and conditions, too. It also offers a choice between two- and four-door models, as well as different body sizes. While the Wrangler has an iconic design, it would never been confused for a luxury SUV. Plus, it doesn't deliver the same sporty handling when you're on the road either.

Interior Style & Comfort

As you may expect, the cabin of the Land Rover Defender offers timeless luxury. There are options like Windsor leather seats and 16-way power-adjustable front seats to help you find your perfect setting. You can also see lots of information on your drive through a 12-inch customizable screen that serves as your instrument cluster.

The Jeep Wrangler also offers leather seats, but the quality isn't as high as what you'll find inside the Land Rover. While adjustable seats are available, they can't offer as many settings. You'll also be able to see lots of information about your drive on the instrument cluster, but it only features a 7-inch display between the traditional gauges.
