The Jeep Wrangler has long been a rugged, powerful and downright manly car, and now there is an all-new model!
The new Wrangler looks as a Wrangler should, featuring evolutionary changes over its predecessor that include a more upright grille, headlights that recess into the outer slots like those of the Jeep CJ-7, and turn signals on the fenders rather than in the grille.
Air breathers on the front wheel wells reduce turbulence, while the taillights stretch into the quarter panels, a first for the Wrangler.
The fears that the new Wrangler would go soft and lose its fold-down windshield and removable doors were unfounded — it retains both, as well as the flat, vertical dashboard.
Speaking of dashboard, the new Wrangler’s interior is a lot nicer than before, toning down the utilitarian look and feel a by adding more colors, higher quality materials and craftsmanship, and more tech.
Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder or a naturally-aspirated 3.6L V6. A diesel engine will reportedly be added to the lineup at a later date.
Oh, it is available with a manual transmission as the gods intended…
The Jeep Wrangler has never made any pretensions of being a sports car or even a luxury cruiser, but few vehicles can match its off-road prowess. Are you happy with how the new model turned out, and would you buy it?
