2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser

Becoming another familiar face on the market is the FJ Cruiser. For eight years the FJ Cruiser has had relatively no styling changes and still features a distinct rounded-off Tonka truck appearance that puts this vehicle nearly in a class of its own. The 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Canada prices starts at $33,540 which is a bit more expensive than the 2014 Wrangler Unlimited.
Examining this vehicle closer, the 2014 FJ Cruiser interior offers more spacious seating up front than the Wrangler Unlimited but less legroom for the backseat passengers. Not to mention the rear hinged back doors make climbing into the backseat a rather difficult task. Offering a quieter and smoother ride than the Wrangler, the seating inside the 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser is quite comfortable. Also, the dash and control stack feature a tasteful and aesthetically pleasing layout and design. Features that you will find available in the 2014 FJ Cruiser but not the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited include: rear park assist, automatic headlights, luggage rack, universal garage door opener and a backup camera.
The 2014 FJ Cruiser safety ratings are good and it also does well in crash test ratings, although its distinctive body style greatly limits outward visibility. A greatly appreciated safety feature is the backup camera that will surely get plenty of use. Powered by a 4.0-litre V6 engine that delivers 260 horsepower and 271 lb-ft torque, the 2014 FJ Cruiser is definitely not lacking when it comes to power. The 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser fuel economy comes in at 13.8 L/100 km city and 11.8 L/100 km highway which is practically identical to that offered by the competitor.
This is the last year of the FJ cruiser and would be the year to buy one if you’re in the market for a well handling, extreme off-roading, spacious, safe and practical sports utility vehicle for everyday commuting.

2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

The 2014 Jeep Wrangler hardly needs an introduction due to its long lasting dedication to its original design, which is to be able to handle all terrains, canceling out limitations on most land travel. The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Canada price starts at $30,395 making this the more affordable option compared to the 2014 FJ Cruiser.
Updated and improved, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited interior provides more comfortable seats compared to its earlier models. However, moving to the backseat you will find limited legroom but it is important to note that is rear legroom is substantially more in the 2014 Wrangler Unlimited than offered by the 2014 FJ Cruiser.
The Jeep Wrangler is strong and fast, boasting the impressive 3.6-litre Pentastar engine that offers an incredible 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft torque. Available features found in the 2014 Wrangler that you won’t find in the 2014 FJ Cruiser include: fog lamps, premium sound system, built-in hard drive media storage, leather-wrapped steering wheel, security system and a trip computer.
The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited safety could stand improvement due to subpar performance in side impact crash test ratings. The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited fuel economy isn’t the best due to the lack of an aerodynamic design, coming in at 14.7 L/100 km city and 11.2 L/100 km highway, which is very comparable to the 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser fuel economy. The Jeep Wrangler is highly sought after by its loyal fans regardless of its fuel economy and not so smooth riding ability. The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has the reputation, the look, and the off-road performance that makes it undeniably an icon and no matter the flaws; it’s a Jeep and if you own it, you’re in!

And The Winner Is…

While the Jeep Wrangler is the obvious name for popularity, the FJ Cruiser is better for towing heavier loads and has proven to be the safer of the two choices. The 2014 FJ Cruiser has a better quality interior that has more to offer with only a slightly higher price than the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Off-road capability is about the same for both vehicles. Offering a good choice to anybody who wants extreme 4×4 off-road capabilities that also comes with better handling ability, comfort, and safety that the Wrangler Unlimited fails to offer; the FJ Cruiser is heating up the competition and becoming an increasingly popular competitor in the market. Providing a better ride on the pavement with about the same amount of stops at the gas pump the 2014 FJ Cruiser is clearly the winner of the car comparison.
