For those who want an impressive vehicle that performs exceptionally well off-road and is comfortable on city streets, then the new Jeep Wrangler could be for you.
The new model retains the legendary looks and comes packed with state-of-the-art technology.
Depending on the trim chosen, the Wrangler line-up consists of two advanced all-wheel drive systems – which are either full time or selected – with an electronic front roll-bar and a limited slip differential.
Jeep Wrangler features brand-new engines
The Jeep Wrangler features brand-new engines including a 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol unit and a 2.2 litre Multijet turbocharged diesel engine. All of the engine choices are mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox to deliver the necessary performance levels.
The diesel engine features stop-start technology to help save fuel and delivers 200 HP. The petrol engine delivers 272 HP and both engines meet the Euro6 standard.
The engines and the transmission work well together when the vehicle is taken off-road and they also deliver smooth performance around town.
Recognisable Jeep Wrangler design has been updated
Potential drivers have a choice of 10 exterior colours to choose from and the recognisable Jeep Wrangler design has been updated from its traditional look.
The Wrangler delivers a wide stance and large windows to deliver improved visibility, particularly when the driver takes the vehicle on extreme trails.
It’s also the only authentic open-air 4×4 SUV that is currently available in the UK and there’s a range of roof types, including a three panel hard top, a powered soft top and a zipper-less soft top.
The interior has also been redesigned to offer functionality and versatility with Jeep using high-quality materials to deliver a comfortable and stylish cabin.

New safety kit for the Wrangler includes rear cross path detection, blind spot monitoring, ParkView reverse camera as well as electronic stability control.
Prices for the new Jeep Wrangler start at £44,865 OTR and while it’s in a competitive segment, the Wrangler still delivers a unique offering and for those who want its ‘go anywhere’ capabilities and a comfortable motorway drive, then it is certainly worth considering.
