Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Jeep Wrangler will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Convenience
The Mitsubishi Outlander requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Jeep Wrangler or the Mitsubishi Outlander, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler is much higher than that for the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Wrangler is much wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jeep Wrangler, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler has the same turning radius as the Mitsubishi Outlander, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler is clearly the choice over the Mitsubishi Outlander for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler greatly out-muscles the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Jeep Wrangler seats a lot fewer people than the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Jeep Wrangler has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Wrangler is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
