If you're on the market for a new compact SUV seasoned for off-grid adventures, with the powerful performance and all-terrain capabilities to make the grade, you'll be hard-pressed to find one to surpass a Jeep. The field of rivals narrows even further against mainstays of rugged SUV prowess like the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, back for a new 2018 model year in a new Wrangler Unlimited JK iteration. Even competition comparatively modern and cutting-edge in the segment, like that of the 2018 Chevrolet Trax, has a hard time keeping up. Check out how our latest Jeep SUV pulls ahead here at Santa Monica Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM, and we think you'll see just some of where we're coming from.

Wrangler Unlimited JK Sport vs. 2018 Chevrolet Trax LS

  • 260 pound-feet of torque pushing 285 horsepower is par for the course in the new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK base, which features a spirited 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine. Invest in a new 2018 Trax, and you'll only get 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet from a smaller-capacity, less-energetic 1.4-liter, four-cylinder.
  • Command-Trac® shift-on-the-fly, part-time 4WD, complete with a low 2.72:1 crawl ratio for ascending rocky terrain and a neutral mode for flat towing, comes standard. Chevy Trax, at base, only builds in front-wheel drive.
  • If you prefer hands-on control, a standard six-speed manual transmission delivers. Our Chevy SUV competition incorporates only an automatic, meaning fewer options.
  • Count on going the distance with fewer trips to the pump, too, thanks to a 22.5-gallon fuel capacity compared to that of the new Chevrolet Trax, at 14.0 gallons.
  • Ditto for edges in space to sprawl out for the trip. Our Jeep offering has more overall headroom, front hip room, and front and rear leg and shoulder room than its Chevy counterpart.
  • Jeep offers more cargo volume, too -- up to 70.6 cubic feet. Opt for the new Trax, and you'll only find to only 48.4 cubic feet.
  • You can also tow up to 2,000 pounds when 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK is properly equipped. Towing isn't recommended, however, with the Chevy Trax base.
  • A show of our automaker's commitment to durability, a new Wrangler Unlimited JK can even be counted on to hold its residual value better than a new Chevrolet Reax, even up to 60 months.
