Looking for a 4x4? Then surely you have wondered which is better, the Jeep Wrangler or the Montero. It is a segment where few models remain.

Which is better, the Jeep Wrangler or the Montero? At a time when true off-roaders aren't at their best, let's take a look at what these two contenders have to offer. And it is that, a while ago I brought you the 3 reasons why authentic SUVs are no longer made, being the successful SUVs the ones that have done the most damage to this type of vehicle.

However, there is still a customer profile that seeks and demands an SUV, so the few options that exist on the market must be analyzed so that you are able to find the most appropriate vehicle. Along with the Toyota Land Cruiser, the Suzuki Jimny or the Mercedes G-Class, we find the two protagonists of this small technical comparison that can be a real alternative for that driver of 4x4 vehicles.
Jeep Wrangler: the newly renovated

Although it has not officially gone on sale yet, we already have many interesting facts about the new Jeep Wrangler that we can use in this little comparison. It was officially revealed at the end of last year and it is a completely new generation that replaces the current one (JK) that has been active since 2011 and is also still on sale.

As in the previous generation, the Jeep Wrangler will be available in both a three-door and a five-door version, which represents an increase in length, being 4,290 and 4,850 mm, respectively. Although at the moment the width and height are not known, in the previous model it was 1,873 mm and 1,825 mm, so it is not expected to vary much in this new model, although the wheelbase will be greater, since the JK generation was shorter and had 2,424 mm wheelbase. The trunk was 141 liters in the three-door version and up to 284 liters in the five-door.

As for engines, at the moment the units with which the new Wrangler 2018 will be equipped have not been defined, but we know that in the United States it will be available with two gasoline engines, a 270-hp 2.0-liter turbo and a 285-hp 3.6 hp, as well as a 3.0-liter diesel with 260 hp. The engines can be associated with manual transmissions of six relations or automatic of eight, as well as reduction, rigid axles and all-wheel drive that can be manually connected.

The off-road capabilities of the new Jeep can be summed up in an approach angle of 44º, departure angle of 37º and breakover angle of 27.8º degrees, as well as a ground clearance of 27.4 cm and a wading depth that reaches 30" On the other hand, more technology has been integrated into the new Wrangler, such as a 5-inch to 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia system, Jeep JL rgb halo headlights, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, and a 3.5-inch screen. 7 inches in the instrument panel to control all the parameters of the vehicle. Prices have not been revealed at the moment, but the previous generation starts at 39,744 euros in the three-door version and 42,745 euros in the five-door version.

While the Wrangler is completely new, the Montero was launched on the market in 2012 and renewed through a restyling in 2015. It presents a slightly different vehicle concept from that of the American 4x4, with a hard top, a non-retractable windshield and doors with hinges on the inside, which means that they cannot be removed if necessary.

However, the Montero is a great choice for its dimensions. It is also available in a three- and five-door version with the size differences that this entails. With 4,385 mm in length in the three-door version and 4,900 mm in the five-door version, the width is 1,875 mm and the height is 1,860 mm in both cases. However, the wheelbase ranges between 2,545 and 2,780 mm. Its trunk can be between 215 and 1,790 liters, depending on the bodywork and the number of rows of seats, since the five-door version offers seven seats inside.

On a mechanical level, the Mpntero is available with a single 3.2-liter DI-D diesel engine with four cylinders in line that offers 200 hp of power and 441 Nm of torque. It is only available with a five-speed automatic transmission, which channels power to the asphalt through a Super Select 4WD II drive system with a lockable center differential, as well as the rear differential.

Being a 4x4 it is necessary to talk about its off-road capabilities. The Montero has an approach angle of 34.6º, a departure angle of 34.3º and a breakover angle of 24.1º, while the ground clearance is 20.5 cm and the wading depth is 70 cm. It also offers extensive technological equipment, such as a 7-inch touch screen for the multimedia system with different connectivity options, a rear view camera, xenon headlights or automatic high beam lighting, among others. Prices start at 35,700 euros in the three-door version and 38,700 in the five-door version.

Now, as you may have seen, they are two true 4x4s that offer a slightly different approach. The Jeep Wrangler is a more recreational vehicle for off-road enthusiasts, excursions and outdoor activities. Its main disadvantage is the lack of a trunk, while its strongest point is the versatility it offers, its removable bodywork and the range of engines and transmissions.

By contrast, the Montero offers a different approach. It is a work vehicle, much more practical due to its seven seats, but more limited in terms of off-road capabilities and range of engines. Luckily, it is even more competitively priced than the JK-generation Wrangler, which is a point in its favor when you consider the prices of these types of vehicles. It is also one more aspect to take into account the fact that the Montero has a more direct relationship with a car, a car that you can use more on a day-to-day basis due to its huge trunk, for example.
