2019 BMW M5 vs. 2020 Jeep Wrangler


You can’t go wrong with the 2019 BMW M5 if all you’re after is performance drenched in luxury. The car gets its muscles from a meaty twin-turbo 4.4 liter V8 engine complete with 600 horsepower and 553lb-ft of torque. That alone tells you the car isn’t just strong it is also lightning fast! Its high points, apart from the strong engine, include an unmistakable organic steering feel, a playful yet frisky disposition and a cabin that looks appropriately high end. If your focus is on pure performance, your search will most likely end once you either ride inside or drive the 2019 BMW M5.

2020 Jeep Wrangler – it looks more or less like the first-generation Jeep created to support army troops. It boasts of a strong four-wheel drive with tech and luxurious extras to match its off-road escapades. It does not guarantee comfort and safety though.

Design & Style

Body rigidity, lightness and safety are essential to exceptional driving dynamics. BMW knows that too well. That explains why the 2019 BMW M5 is carefully crafted and designed with high strength, weight-saving materials.  The interior features supple and supportive sport seats for your comfort. But that’s not the most notable factor. BMW has gone a notch further with the interior design to guarantee what they like to call optimized positioning for performance style driving. The auto giant also decided to break its M series norm by not going the all-touchscreen way as many M5 siblings did. This means 0 distractions when driving each time you want to adjust the A/C or the radio.

2020 Jeep Wrangler is not the most accommodating or spacious SUV available. There is no doubt about that. For its price tag, it provides a seamless blend of modern and vintage Jeep character. A commanding view of the terrain one is driving on ensures easy maneuverability. There is a problem though. A major one in fact – the view rearward is obscured by roll bars, thick roof pillars and different grab handles.

Technology & Safety

The first thing you’ll notice once inside the 2019 BMW M5 is its large infotainment display which runs the latest and most advanced BMW iDrive Software. The display is strategically perched on the dashboard towards the driver’s right-hand side where it is controlled by a rotary knob fixed on the center console. A slew of safety and driver assistance and safety features such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, automated emergency braking and pedestrian detection make the M5’s driving experience so much better.

Blind-spot monitoring and parking sensors stand out as the main safety features that come along with the 2020 Jeep Wrangler. For tech extras, the Wrangler comes along with Uconnect, which is a Jeeps infotainment interface. It sounds cool but it is not user friendly.


The 2019 BMW M5 is fast. That almost sounds like a cliché. On to specs that matter, the beast comes along with a twin-turbo 4.4 liter V8 engine designed to unleash 600hp and a further 553 lb-ft of torque. It also guaranteed lively and direct steering complete with a controlled borderline stiff ride. It’s cornering is precise thanks to its grip and agility. The icing on the cake is M5’s high tech drivetrain capable of sending 100% to the rear wheels for an out of this world driving experience. All these with an 8-speed automatic transmission system will have you swear your loyalty to BMW for knitting a masterpiece so rare yet so thrilling.

The Bottom Line

2019 BMW M5 delivers a punch. Step on the gas pedal and feel its thrill. It is confident in every aspect, luxurious from the inside out and most importantly, safe. It is also fuel-efficient, spacious and laced with a slew of user-friendly tech features for easy driving. You will fall in love with its powerful engine output with ultra-smooth shifts from its 8-speed automatic transmission.

2020 Jeep Wrangler looks nice. But there’s much more into a car than just aesthetics. The fact its safety is questionable is enough for one to hold back. It is also a fuel guzzler. Note too that it has been described by many as hard to maintain.
