2019 Wrangler Wins Motortrend SUV of the Year

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler is Motortrend’s 2019 SUV of the Year. To show drivers in Penn Yan, Geneva, and Watkins Glen what makes this an award-winning SUV and why this classic Jeep continues to deliver, Friendly Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram put together this review.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Capability

2019 Jeep Wrangler CapabilityThe 2019 Jeep Wrangler sits on tough front and rear Dana® 44 axles and offers three versatile 4×4 systems that’ll provide you with a dependable ride on any terrain.

The Selec-Trac® system monitors your drive and switches automatically from 2-wheel drive to 4-wheel drive when conditions call for it.

The Command-Trac® system makes driving on trails more fun with a shift-on-the-fly system and a 2.72:1 low range.

For extreme off-roading, you’ll love the Rock-Trac® system. It features a 4:1 low range gear ratio, a smart off-road transfer case, an electronic front sway bar disconnect, and both a front and rear Tru-Lok® electronic locking differential.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Performance

To power this versatile SUV, you’ll have a choice between two dynamic engines. The first is a 2.0L Turbo I-4 engine that gets up to 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The second option is a larger 3.6L Pentastar® V8 that can reach up to 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

To manage this power and give you plenty of lower gears for navigating tough terrain, both engines can work with either a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Whether you’re off-roading or running errands around town, each powertrain can help you bring lots of cargo with you. The 2019 Wrangler has a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Design

2019 Jeep Unlimited Wrangler DesignThe 2019 Jeep Wrangler still features this SUV’s iconic design. Its 7-bar grille is bordered by the signature round LED headlamps. Just below, your durable steel bumper gives you even greater visibility with LED fog lights.

Along the sides you’ll have rock rails that can stand up to any rugged terrain or obstacles that stand in your way. With a ground clearance of 10.8 inches, this Jeep can conquer rocks, logs, and ditches with ease. Plus, its underbody sealing allows you to comfortably drive through up to 30 inches of water.

As always, you’ll have a choice between a 2- or 4-door model. You can also customize the look of your Jeep by removing the doors or folding down the front windshield.

Up top, you can pick between the Sunrider® soft top, the Freedom Top® Modular hardtop, or the new Sky One-Touch™ Power Top. This third option offers removable rear window panels and allows you to see the sky with just the push of a button.
