Jeep Wrangler Overview

As an every day vehicle, the Wrangler trails nearly every other SUV. However, if you plan to use the Wrangler for mainly off-road use, there are few vehicles that are better. This Wrangler is better than it has ever been. It uses Chrysler's 3.6-liter V6 and five-speed automatic, a combination that returned 17 mpg overall in our tests. The ride rocks and jiggles constantly, and handling is very clumsy. Wind noise becomes very loud at highway speeds. Getting in and out is an awkward act. The interior is uncomfortable. Off-road performance is still impressive, but the Rubicon performs better than our tested Unlimited Sahara did. IIHS side-crash results without the optional side air bags are unimpressive. Reliability of the four-door version is below average, the two-door version is average.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
