The Jeep Wrangler is considered a compact 4x4 SUV—and it just so happens to be one of the most capable on- and off-road SUVs on the market. It’s rugged and iconic and will satisfy even the most adventurous drivers’ urge to hit the open road and tackle the most challenging terrain. Whether it’s a beach, a log-ridden road, or the wide-open highway, the Wrangler will get it done.
Jeeps haven’t changed much since they were first released, but the continued evolution of the Wrangler means that the 2022 model year offers more comfort and usability than ever. It’s offered in five different engines, including a plug-in hybrid, so whether you want fuel economy, power, or a mix of both, chances are there’s a model that will satisfy.
Depending on your style, the Jeep Wrangler is also available in a 2-door model or a 4-door model called the Unlimited. Most Jeep Wranglers come with a part-time 4WD system with low-range gearing, but a full-time 4WD system is available.
Whether you’re an avid off-roader or just looking for the thrill of a Jeep, the Wrangler is a solid choice—but ensure you protect it with a solid
