The interior of the Jeep Wrangler looks good and is built sturdy enough to stand up to even your muddiest adventure. The entire interior is made with an array of sturdy, durable, water-resistant materials. They can stand up to anything you can put them through. You can simply hose it out after your off-road adventures. Its two rows of seats are both roomy and comfortable. Its upright, tall seating position provides a commanding view of the roadway. Wind flows through and around its boxy body and even if you opt for the leather upholstery the primary requirement is that the four-seater be durable and have enough cargo space for your gear and your groceries.
The standard Uconnect infotainment system on the Jeep Wrangler is very easy to use. It comes with a 5-inch, 7-inch or 8.4-inch touch screen and its intuitive menu layouts are very simple to navigate.

There are two different tops available on the Jeep Wrangler. A soft-top roof comes as standard equipment. Plus, there is an available hardtop roof. Both roofs are very easy to remove. The soft-top roof is power-folding and can fold back on the rear tailgate neatly and the hardtop can be removed in seconds. It's not unusual to see the Wrangler zooming along on off-road or on road adventures with no top at all and filled with smiling passengers. A big part of the allure of this rugged, versatile SUV is that you can feel the wind whipping through the vehicle as you make your way hither and yon to have some fun.
The Jeep Wrangler has more cargo space than most of the vehicles in its class has to offer. Choose the two-door Jeep Wrangler and it comes with cargo space of 12.9 cubic feet when its rear seats are in the upright position. Fold the seats down and the cargo space increases to 31.7 cubic feet. The cargo space on the four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is 31.7 cubic feet with the rear seats in place. If you fold the rear seats down, the cargo space more than doubles to 72.4 cubic feet. That's more than enough space to stow all the groceries and the gear you need for even your most ambitious outdoor adventures.
The two-door Jeep Wrangler has seating for four. The four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited on the other hand, has comfortable seating for five. Cloth upholstery comes standard. However, there is available premium cloth upholstery and leather upholstery. Plus, the Wrangler is available with heated front seats, as well as a heated steering wheel. The upright body shape of the Wrangler means there's lots of headroom for tall people in both the front and the rear. Overall, the seats are supportive and comfortable, and there is a great deal of legroom in the four-door model's rear seats. So riding in the back is lots of fun.
Although the Jeep Wrangler is built for having fun, it does have safety features for if you are taking children with you on your outdoor adventures. The Jeep Wrangler comes with two sets of LATCH connectors that can be used on the rear outboard seats. It also has a tether anchor designed to be used in the rear middle seat. Plus, you can borrow a lower anchor from each side. This LATCH system was awarded the highest rating by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It indicates the system is the most versatile and easiest to use. Although passenger comfort is not a high priority in the Wrangler, child safety is.
The Jeep Wrangler has a wide range of very important safety features. They include driver, passenger and front side airbags, 4-Wheel ABS, brake assist and 4-Wheel disc brakes. Plus, it has electronic stability control, traction control, a rollover protection system and front tow hooks. Some available driver assistance features on the iconic Jeep Wrangler include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring and rear parking sensors. Although designed for fun and adventure, the Wrangler places a high priority on safety.
Since it was first introduced in 1986, America's favorite off-roader, the Jeep Wrangler has been powered by a wide range of different engines. The first-generation engines were 2.5 liter, 117 horsepower inline-4 engines with 135 pound-feet of torque that were mated with a 5-speed manual or 3-speed automatic transmission. It was replaced with a 4.2 liter, 112 horsepower, I6 engine that produced 210 pound-feet of torque. In 1991 a new 4.0 liter, 180 horsepower, I6 fuel injected engine with 220 pound-feet of torque that's considered one of Jeep's best engines was added. It continued to work with either the 3-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission.
The 2.4 liter, I4, 147 horsepower Powertech engine that puts out 165 pound-feet of torque is another of the motors used in the Wrangler that works with a 4-speed automatic or a 5 or 6 speed manual transmission. The standard engine on the fourth generation Jeep Wrangler is a 3.6 liter V6 285 horsepower Pentastar engine with 260 pound-feet of torque. There's also an optional 2.0 liter, 270 horsepower, I4 turbo engine with 295 pound-feet of torque. Both engines work with either a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Indirectly descended from the Jeep the American military drove during World War II, the Jeep Wrangler has earned a reputation as a vehicle that can nimbly handle any type of off-road terrain. The combination of its durable suspension, powerful differential and an engine and transmission that can perform well on any surface has earned the Wrangler the status of a legendary off-road vehicle. If you want a compact SUV that can handle city driving, winding country roads, high speed highway driving and the most rough, rugged and raw off-road adventures, nothing can beat the legendary, versatile Wrangler.
Historically, the Wrangler name was given to a mid size SUV with a design based on the four-wheel-drive vehicle that was popular in World War II. It was modified, upgraded, modernized and unveiled to the public at the 1986 Chicago Auto Show. Today, the Jeep Wrangler continues to evolve. Although it still has its rugged, off-road bona fides, it is surprisingly modern and drivers can choose as much technology as they like. It is fundamentally a convertible available with front-wheel-drive or four-wheel drive that has coil springs in the front and rear and is attractive to people from any age group.
