With an updated powertrain, this may be the best version yet, but the Wrangler is seriously outdated in the modern world.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.

Road Test Results

Performance
Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.
0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.
Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.
Fuel Economy Fuel Economy We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits to represent city and highway consumption.
CR's Overall Mileage CR's Overall Mileage CR's overall mileage is a composite of measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course and highway cruising; and CR's 150-mile test trip of mixed driving, if tested. In recent road tests, we've discontinued the 150-mile trip test.
CR's City Mileage CR's City Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course.
CR's Highway Mileage CR's Highway Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed highway cruising.
Annual Fuel Cost Annual Fuel Cost The cost and amount of fuel used in 12,000 miles and is calculated from CR's overall mileage.
Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.
Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.
Comfort / Convenience
Ride Ride Our expert judgment of how well the suspension isolates and absorbs road imperfections and how steady it keeps the body on various road surfaces.
Noise Noise Our expert judgment of the vehicle's interior noise level in everyday driving.
Front Seat Comfort Front Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the front seat is for drivers of various heights.
Rear Seat Comfort Rear Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the rear seat is for two passengers to sit across.
Interior Fit and Finish Interior Fit and Finish An expert evaluation of the interior quality and craftsmanship.
Trunk/Cargo Area Trunk/Cargo Area Our rating is based on the amount of luggage or cargo space that a vehicle has in the trunk or cargo area.
Emissions
Greenhouse Gas Greenhouse Gas The Greenhouse Gas Rating represents the amount of carbon dioxide the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).
NA
Smog Rating Smog Rating The Smog Rating represents the amount of health-damaging and smog-forming airborne pollutants the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).

Owner Reports

Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

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.

I did, but feel that the dealership did not have the technical expertise to simply flush the system and install new software; and, took the easy way out by installing a complete new radio."

Can't imagine why a internal steering component failure would be a consumer's responsibility to pay. The dealer should have covered that cost. It's not a typical wear and tear item and I was extremely unhappy that I had to pay for it."

"Had no problems for 5 years. Just about 64K and just under 62 months, 1.5 months past factory powertrain, the engine light came on. Turned out to be defective left cylinder head. Extetended warranty was not honored by Fidelity. Chrysler would only pay for parts. There have been hundreds or more of these sidelined across the US. Took months to get the part and and get the vehicle back. Dealership was good to work with but I lost confidence in the vehicle and recently traded it for a Tacoma. Dealership did give me a loaner Jeep for the time mine was in shop so that was good. Total cost for left cylinder head was about estimated at $2300."

What Owners Say

Antilock system (ABS)

"there is a speed sensor by the right rear wheel that apparently goes out, usually within 10,000 miles. I've been told that Jeep/Chrysler accepts the lowest bidder for their parts supply and know this piece will go. When it goes out you lose cruise control, ABS and stability/traction control"

Anonymous, MA (2015 Jeep Wrangler Sport 3.6-L V6)
Master cylinder

"For the first time to my knowledge (and that of the service attendant), the fluid for the brake master cylinder is derived from a connection to the power steering cylinder. Bottom-line, if the power steering fluid gets too low, it can and will affect the brake system big-time!!! This change may save money to the manufacturer, but it sure as hell ought to be explained to new jeep owners and to their own service attendants--failure to do so could cause major problems to include loss of entire breaking system. Manufacturer needs to get their head out of their ass on this issue. Clyde E Jeffcoat, CPA. (licensed CPA for 48 years.)"
