2019 Jeep Wrangler Review
The reviews are in, and the new Jeep Wrangler has been named the 2019 MotorTrend SUV of the Year. They write that the “Jeep Wrangler is what crossovers want to be when they grow up,” and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why our Friendly Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram (DCJR) team has created our own guide to the Jeep Wrangler.
The best news is that if you live around Penn Yan, Geneva, or Watkins Glen, NY, you can test drive it today!
Jeep Wrangler: Engine Power
When you take a seat behind the wheel for your test drive, the first thing you’ll notice is just how powerful this crossover is. Regardless of which engine you pick, it’ll deliver quite a bit of kick. Check it out:
- 2.0L Direct-Injection Turbo engine: 270 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque, 3,500 pounds of towing1
- 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine: 285 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque, 3,500 pounds of towing1
The most exciting part is that these engines are just as efficient as they are mighty. The 2.0L option gets up to 23 city/25 highway MPG,2 and the 3.6L one gets up to 17 city/25 highway MPG.3
Incredible Off-Road Capabilities
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler was engineered to be much more than just a horsepower and torque machine—it’s designed to get you off the beaten path and into the wild via several high-tech 4X4 systems.
Selec-Trac® 4X4 System – This available technology includes full-time mode, which automatically switches from 2WD to 4WD whenever driving conditions demand it. By doing this, the wheels that have the best grip on the terrain will receive the most torque, creating a remarkable continuity of optimal traction.
Command-Trac® 4X4 System – Next, this available 4X4 system provides a shift-on-the-fly system with a 2.72:1 low range—an ideal gear ratio for crawling over rocks, traversing creeks, and generally having fun.
Rock-Trac® 4X4 System – Finally, there’s this world-renowned technology, which actually comes standard on the Rubicon trim level. Why is it known throughout the world? Well, its 4:1 low gear ratio, its Tru-Lok® electronic locking front and rear differentials, and its front sway bar disconnect are preliminary reasons.
Speaking of the Wrangler Rubicon, it comes with a bunch of special features to help you tackle the trail, including:
- Rock rails
- LED lighting
- Steel bumpers
- 33-inch off-road tires
