The Jeep Wrangler, pictured above, is one of the most capable off-roading SUVs available in Cape Girardeau. It also happens to be one of America's most beloved SUVs, thanks to its spirit of adventure, its top-up or top-down driving ability, its ability to be driven without doors, and its range of engine choices and modern amenities.

How does the Jeep Wrangler compare to the Land Rover Defender? The Defender is one of Britain's most beloved off-roaders, renowned for its iconic ability. But as far as creature comforts go, the Defender, which was discontinued in 2016, comes up somewhat lacking. A new Land Rover Defender is slated to be released in 2020, but not enough details have been released to compare the 2019 Jeep Wrangler vs the 2020 Land Rover Defender. Accordingly, we encourage you to keep up with current Jeep new and Land Rover news to better be able to compare these two vehicles as more information is released.

Meanwhile, allow us to provide you some quick stats for the Jeep Wrangler and how it compares to the last of the previous-generation Land Rover Defender lineup – the 2016 Land Rover Defender 90 Heritage.
