What is the best year for a used Jeep Wrangler?
I’m thinking of buying my grandson a Jeep for his birthday since he’s the more outdoorsy type. I want to buy a used model that’s going to last him for a while. What’s the best year for a Jeep Wrangler?

That’s an awesome gift idea! If you’re looking for a used Jeep Wrangler, you’ll find the best years are any models made after 2012. However, the 2015 and 2019 models are stand-outs in the Wrangler lineup.
Jeep Wranglers made after 2012 come with the better 285-hp 3.6-liter V6 engine paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. They also tend to have quality interiors and safety features.
The 2015 Wrangler earns high reliability ratings and boasts excellent off-road performance thanks to its four-wheel drivetrain. If you want a newer option, the 2019 Wrangler Rubicon is the best trim of this model year with leather seats, 18-inch all-terrain tires, and safety features like forward collision prevention.
