With a powerful chassis and athletic build, it's no wonder the 2019 Jeep Wrangler is a top choice among outdoor enthusiasts, earning MotorTrend's "SUV of the Year" title. It has the qualities for dominating a variety of terrains, and its dynamic styling makes it a fitting contender for everyday drives and backcountry adventures. Here's what interested buyers can look forward to behind the wheel of the all-new Jeep Wrangler.
Trim levels (Exterior)
This vehicle starts with five sporty trims, including both two-door and four-door variants. The Sport, Sport S, and Rubicon fit comfortably within both lineups, while the Sahara and Moab come exclusively with four doors. All trims, however, can be dipped in cool and funky shades like Mojito! (lime green), Hellayella (yellow), and Punk'n (orange) for a customized touch. Plus, you'll find the Wrangler fitted with an array of fashionable accessories. This includes a Black Sunrider soft-top or available three-piece hardtop, lighting systems such as front fog lamps and incandescent taillamps, and large wheels ranging from 17 to 18 inches in diameter.
The Wrangler's mighty powertrain links to a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with sequential multi-point injection and engine start-stop technology. This unit pairs with a six-speed manual or optional eight-speed automatic and generates 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. A 2.0-liter eTorque turbocharged four-cylinder is also available and offers a balance of smooth downshifting and responsive acceleration. This unit further produces 270 horsepower and a tad more torque power 295 pound-feet to be exact.
The Wrangler has the definite qualities of a capable sports utility vehicle. In fact, it's available with part-time or full-time four-wheel drive and standard 33-inch off-road tires on the Rubicon for handling rough rides like a pro. You can also experience excellent control via a set of standard four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and a suspension system fine-tuned for normal, heavy-duty, or performance driving. If you're heading out on a camping trip and need to haul a trailer or bulky equipment, this SUV comes with tow hooks in the front and rear. You'll also find a hauling capacity peaking at 2,000 pounds in the two-door and 3,500 pounds in the four-door.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler is conveniently spacious, offering seating for four to five adults, 150.4 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo space, and 55.7 inches of front shoulder room so you don't feel cramped in the slightest. You can also comfortably recline against low-back bucket seats and a driver's seat boasting adjustable settings and lumbar support. Additionally, this SUV packs a suite of road trip-ready accessories. Enjoy a full-length floor console with illuminated cup holders alongside Bluetooth connectivity with integrated voice command. Plus, get a kick out of available features like all-weather floor mats, Apple and Android smartphone integration, and a Uconnect multimedia hub with touch screen and navigation.
Complementing the Wrangler's road prowess is a collection of safety features that range from basic to advanced. On the starting end you have embellishments like multistage front air bags, including supplemental front side air bags, tire pressure monitoring, and trailer sway damping. In the optional lineup you have remote keyless entry with start-stop control and driver-assist features such as adaptive cruise control and full-speed forward collision warning to name a few.
