The 2020 Jeep Wrangler puts its fellow competitors to shame with its suite of boastworthy features. To prove our point, we at Eastgate Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram have compared it to the 2020 Hyundai Tucson. To see which compact SUV is left standing after the brawl, just continue reading below. Afterwards, contact us to learn more.
If you put a premium on power, the clear choice for you is the 2020 Jeep Wrangler. That’s because it comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine that can crank out a whopping 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, which completely outdoes the Hyundai’s standard 2.0L 4-cylinder powertrain that can only provide 161 horsepower and 150 lb.-ft. of torque. That being said, you can grant yourself even more pulling power when you spring for the Jeep’s available 2.0L turbocharged system that can exude a lively 270 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque when you’re on Meridian Street. Once again, the Hyundai struggles, as it’s available 2.4L 4-cylinder engine only puts you in charge of 181 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. Last but not least, the Wrangler offers a 3,500-lb. maximum towing capacity1 to the Hyundai’s 2,000-lb. of hauling potential1.
Although it’s hard to quantify which exterior is better than the other, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler does make a strong case for itself with its many customizable options. For instance, the roof of this ride comes in six variations, including a Black Sunrider® Soft Top and a Black Freedom Top® Three-Piece Hardtop. Additionally, you’ll have a huge selection of 10 exterior colors to choose from, such as Firecracker Red, Bikini Pearl, And Punk’n. In comparison, you’ll have a harder time expressing yourself with the Tucson since it only offers nine colors. On top of that, you won’t be able to go with a different type of roof. And, if you come across any unexpected objects in your path, you can continue on your way unimpeded in the Jeep since it comes with 9.7-inches of ground clearance. With 6.4 inches of ground clearance, you may have to alter your trajectory in the Tucson.
When you turn your attention to the interior, things continue to get better for the Wrangler and worse for the Tucson. While the available 8-inch touchscreen of the Hyundai might impress you initially, you’ll be even more blown away by the available 8.4-inch display in the 2020 Wrangler. Additionally, your vehicle’s vitals will always be within your eyeline since the Jeep comes available with a 7-inch Driver Information Display. You might have to squint to make out the finer details on the Tucson’s available 4.2-inch display. One feature you won’t be able to get in the Hyundai is Amazon Alexa®2. This technology comes standard on the 2020 Wrangler, so you’ll be able to send destination and check your fuel levels without even starting the Jeep.
