There is plenty of power at lower rpm to get the Jeep moving swiftly off the line and to scramble over obstacles that would put some SUVs in an early grave. All Wranglers come with standard part-time four-wheel drive, which means you can use rear-wheel drive in normal conditions, then activate four-wheel drive when it is needed. This vehicle has improved dramatically over the years and is more livable than ever, especially in the relatively new Unlimited version, thanks to its longer wheelbase. There is no overcoming its design and heavy-duty hardware. The Wrangler has non-independent front and rear axles that optimize suspension travel and thus off-road capability. Optional locking front and rear differentials and giant, aggressively treaded off-road tires make the Wrangler even more formidable in the wild.
The Wrangler benefits from its square shape. The longer Grand Cherokee's maximum cargo volume is 68.3. But respectable numbers don't always reflect usable space. The backseat is snug and it doesn't slide forward and back as some do, and the backrests don't recline. They do fold forward, however, in a remarkably simple single step. The head restraints are hinged to fold back and spring-loaded to return upright along with the backrest. The Wrangler's cargo floor is quite narrow due to large wheel wells and a small opening when the swing gate is open. Rather than a conventional liftgate, the Wrangler has a swing gate to accommodate the spare tire, which swings out with it. Another off-roader trade-off, the spare is back here so it doesn't gobble more cargo area or ride under the chassis, where it would diminish the truck's departure angle.
The Wrangler has standard frontal airbags and offers front-seat-mounted side-impact airbags as a stand-alone option. There are no side curtain airbags. The Wrangler has standard antilock brakes, an electronic stability system and traction control. For more information on this vehicle, feel free to give us a call!
