What are critics saying about the Jeep Wrangler?
The above list of “Cons” reads like words we’d craft after driving something designed 28 years ago behind the Iron Curtain. You can almost envision whatever vehicle we’re talking about in grainy, sepia-toned footage with the occasional photo of Lenin and a ballistic missile parade thrown in for good measure. And yet, the vehicle in question is the 2016 Jeep Wrangler, a true American icon akin to no other. What else can evoke images of Ike driving through the liberated towns of Normandy, and fun-loving youth enjoying the never-ending freedoms of nature? Heck, the word “Freedom” is even plastered on a special-edition package and roof designs. Read More >>

If you’re looking for the most serious of off-roading vehicles available, look no further than the legendary Wrangler. It takes all of the right features—four-wheel drive, ample ground clearance, and a nimble suspension—and puts them all in one go-anywhere package. A 285-hp 3.6-liter V-6 is the sole engine; it teams up with either a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. For the ultimate Wrangler, check out the Rubicon—it’s as tough as the legendary trail that inspired it. Read More >>

Off-roading is where the 2015 Wrangler excels with an excellent four-wheel-drive system that allows it to traverse rough trails and crawl through large rocks that would otherwise prevent most SUVs from continuing on. The addition of the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 in the 2012 model year has helped the Wrangler become more capable with more power, better acceleration, and easier to live with on a daily basis with improved on-road performance. Fuel economy, like many off-road focused vehicles, isn’t a strong point with two-door models achieving 17/21 mpg city/highway. Four-door manual- equipped models are rated at 16/21 mpg while opting for the automatic drops those numbers down to 16/20 mpg. Read More >>
