Jeep Wrangler Road Test

The iconic Jeep Wrangler has a loyal following, thanks to its classic design, rugged image and legendary history. With an updated powertrain, this may be the best version yet, but the Wrangler is seriously outdated in the modern world. While designed for capable offroading ability, on the road performance is uncivilized. The ride is unsettled, sometimes even snappy. Handling is very clumsy. Wind noise is pervasive, even at modest speeds. Though the interior has been updated and made somewhat more civilized over the years, it is still cramped and uncomfortable with awkward access. The Wrangler is unique in offering a four-door convertible, but removing the optional hard top or folding the soft-top is quite a project. High prices mean the Wrangler is no inexpensive weekend toy.
