Defining the 2018 Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
The newly-redesigned 2018 Jeep Wrangler has two configurations. There’s the Wrangler and the Wrangler Unlimited. And you’re here because you want to know the difference between the two.
So how does the Jeep Wrangler size up against the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited?
Jeep Wrangler vs. Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
The 2018 Wrangler is a 2-door SUV that seats four people. The Wrangler Unlimited is a 4-door model with seating for five. That’s the key difference between these variants, but we can drill down for more fine-grained distinctions, mostly to do with size and weight.
The Unlimited model offers greater cargo capacity than the 2-door Wrangler. Rear passengers not only get their own door, they also get more hip room, leg room and shoulder room in the Unlimited.
The extra room in the Unlimited comes from a wheelbase that’s almost 20 inches longer — 118.4” vs. 96.8” — though the two models are the same width. However, both models maintain the same angle of approach, breakover, and departure. The 4-door model is heavier than the 2-door depending on whether it’s equipped with a manual or automatic transmission. However, the Unlimited out-tows the smaller Wrangler 3,500 lb. to 2000 lb.*
Beyond the dimensions and the extra doors, each Wrangler model is available in four different trims with the same great features to choose from. You have the choice of two trail-conquering 4-wheel drive (4WD) systems, and you can configure your Jeep with a hard top or soft top.
