About the Jeep Wrangler

There is no more iconic offroad vehicle than the Jeep Wrangler. It is undoubtedly the vehicle you think of when you imagine going offroad, and this is with very good reason. Unlike nearly every other SUV on the planet, the Wrangler was built with going offroad as its primary function, rather than an afterthought for a grocery-getter. Originally conceived as a military vehicle, the Wrangler still wears styling that evokes this heritage, and it is as functional as ever. Three different engines are offered (and a plug-in hybrid drivetrain that is reviewed separately), including a 6.4-liter V8 that gives the Wrangler some serious performance capability. The Wrangler also comes with a huge variety of configuration options, letting you dial in exactly the sort of vehicle you need for whatever sort of adventure you’re looking to go on.

What the Critics Say

“There's something to be said about having a single overriding goal. Top athletes have the kind of narrow focus that makes them legendary in their sport, and in the automotive world, the Jeep Wrangler has remained the ultimate off-roader for decades.” – Edmunds “The Jeep Wrangler is a legend for good reasons. It’s one of the most capable off-road SUVs money can buy, and it has a distinct aesthetic that makes it instantly recognizable.” – Kelley Blue Book

What’s New For 2024

The Wrangler received several important changes for 2024, starting with a new grille design and 10 new wheel designs. Inside, both of the old infotainment touchscreens have been dropped in favor of a new 12.3-inch screen that’s standard across the whole lineup. The software that this screen is running has been upgraded as well, and the available navigation system now includes maps for more than 2,000 offroad trails, and more can be downloaded. The software upgrade also includes upgraded active noise canceling, made to combat road and wind noise while you’re on a phone call.

Jeep Wrangler Features

Legendary Capability

Powering the Wrangler’s offroad adventures is a choice of three different engines. Standard on most trims is the 3.6-liter V6, which produces 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, more than enough to get you over rocks and unstuck from the mud. Available on most trims and standard on the Sahara trim is a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that produces 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. This obviously isn’t too different from the V6, but the 2.0-liter engine offers better fuel economy to go with that power. Last up is the 6.4L V8 SRT® HEMI® engine that is only available in the Rubicon 392, where it comes standard. This produces 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Whichever engine you choose, power will be sent through a choice of four different 4WD system, two of them part-time and two of them full-time. And while an 8-speed automatic transmission is available, the Wrangler is one of the few new vehicles being sold today that can be outfitted with a manual transmission.

Advanced Technology

The Wrangler’s success over the years comes from mixing proven offroad elements that have stood the test of time, and the latest in cutting-edge technology that gives the Wrangler an edge over less-evolved offroad machines. Some of this tech is present to help with offroad duties, like the available Command-Trac®, Rock-Trac®, or Selec-Trac® 4WD systems, the Tru-Lok® axles, or the Integrated Off-Road Camera. The navigation system comes loaded with trail maps, and more can be downloaded, which can help to keep you from getting lost, a valuable tool to have. And then there’s tech to make the experience more enjoyable, like heated seats, and the impressive available Alpine® Premium Audio System, which boasts 9 speakers and 552-watt output. To control this stereo, the Wrangler comes with the advanced and user-friendly Uconnect® 5 system, running on a large 12.3-inch touchscreen that is standard for the entire lineup.

Extensive Configurations

Every offroad adventure is different, and a major strength of any serious offroader is the ability to customize it to whatever you need for your specific type of offroading. There are seven different trims, with a choice of 2-door or 4-door body styles for most of them. There are three engines (as well as a plug-in hybrid drivetrain), two transmissions, four 4WD systems, and eight roof configurations. Optional equipment gives you even more choices, including wheel, tire, and suspension changes, as well as various body components. Additional equipment is available through Mopar, all of which is officially endorsed by Jeep and guaranteed to be compatible with your Wrangler. The catalog of this equipment is immense, and the ways you can further equip your Wrangler far exceed any other vehicle on the market.
