While we hold the 2018 Jeep Wrangler in high regard, its deliverance of performance is average for the class. Competing within the same class are the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2018 Dodge Durango, and the 2018 GMC Acadia.

Although it falls behind by just 3.3 seconds in a 0-60 run, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler fails to solidify its name as the best in the class as far as acceleration is concerned. The quarter-mile run times show us nothing different, with the 2018 Jeep Wrangler falling 3.6 seconds behind the 2018 Jeep Cherokee.
Although much can be said about its braking performance, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler was not the one to take the crown when it comes to absolute braking performance. With it taking 128 feet to come to a complete stop traveling 60mph, it was outclassed by the 2018 Jeep Cherokee. However, others in the class, namely the 2018 Jeep Compass, are seen doing worse.
