2020 Land Rover Defender Takes On the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

December 3rd, 2019 by

2020 Land Rover Defender

Both the brand new 2020 Land Rover Defender and the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon are amazing performance-focused vehicles with impressive off-road capabilities.  With the Defender coming out early next year, it is a direct competitor to the newest Wrangler Rubicon.  The Defender is sure to challenge the Wrangler Rubicon due to its impressive off-road capability mixed with the luxury and innovation Land Rover is known for.  

In terms of the off-road equipment, both are equipped with off-road suspensions, low range two-speed transfer cases, and locking differentials.  One difference is that with the Defender it will automatically help you with terrain responses by adjusting electronically to meet challenges.  The Wrangler Rubicon expects you to decide when it is time to adjust manually.  Both vehicles have similar dimensions, but the Defender is better for cresting obstacles and descending on the other side thanks to a shorter rear overhang and higher ride height. 

When you’re looking for a SUV that also provides comfort for your passengers, the Defender tops this challenge.  Thanks to Land Rover’s commitment to luxury, the Defender provides your passengers with a comfortable leather interior plus better legroom than the Wrangler Rubicon.  The Defender is also more powerful and offers better towing capabilities.  Although the Wrangler Rubicon offers three engine types and the Defender offers two, both Defender engine options provide more power.  That helps to haul up to 8,000 pounds with the Defender.  Overall, the value of the Defender is better due to all of the advantages it provides over the Wrangler Rubicon.
