The Jeep The Wrangler is not new to the US car scene. Its iconic shape and powerful reputation still stand today – it’s even better. Over the years, it has carved a special place for itself in the ranks of the most durable and reliable sports utility vehicles in America.
The origins of the Jeep Wrangler can be traced back to the 1940s, and the car has retained its appeal even into contemporary times. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler facelift even got better with the 2019 model of the car.
We know the Jeep Wrangler as a thorough, off-road capable car with nothing less than amazing performance, easily recognizable thanks to its unique and masculine design. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL stayed true to its “off-road storm” identity and offered even more with upgraded features. The car now has more color range as we have seen new paint colors like bikini added to the existing colors.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler isn’t just for off-roading. There are some body-on-body improvements for daily commuting duties, thanks to powertrain upgrades and new advanced safety features, though we wouldn’t advise turning it into your everyday commuter. Let’s take a closer look at the iconic car.
Interior and infotainment
The interior of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler has a masculine look to match the car’s unique, iconic design. The interior of the Wrangler stands out just like the exterior and cannot be confused with any other car.
The upright seating position gives the occupants a fuller and more commanding view of their surroundings. For a better off-road experience, the car has a removable roof that offers a better outdoor experience and doors that can be easily removed if the driver prefers it that way.
The user-friendly infotainment in the 2019 Jeep Wrangler exudes a modern and vintage aura. It has a simple dashboard with a 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen that is not too big to command attention and not too small to be unnoticeable. It has an option for Android Auto and Apple Car Play. The option of a nine-speaker Alpine audio and navigation system is also available.
Performance and features
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler features a powerful Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine capable of generating 285 horsepower and 26 lb-ft of torque. The engine can be mated to a powerful, smooth-shifting six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The car also has an all-new automatic four-wheel drive and powerful suspensions.
The option of a 2.0-liter turbocharged straight four engine is also available. This engine comes with eTorque technology, which coughs out 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The six-speed manual transmission has a 0 – 60 mph acceleration record of 6.1 seconds, which is quite impressive for an off-road vehicle. The handling of the car has also improved — although you shouldn’t expect it to move like a sports sedan, the drivability is still top notch even on rough terrain.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler also has more advanced safety features. The car is equipped with a new forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control, making it safer to drive around town. Other features available in the car include; chunky switchgear for the climate control system, power windows, power and heated seats were offered and some other cool features. The available space for cargo is also larger on the 2019 Wrangler compared to the previous models. The car also ticks on good fuel economy. It gets 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler comes in four models: Sport, Sport S, Rubicon, Sahara (Sahara is only available in four doors). Each trim offers different options and experiences. For example, Rubicon is the heavy-duty variant and it has advanced features for off-road work. Owning the base model of 2019 Jeep Wrangler will cost $28,045. But to own other advanced trims, the price is significantly higher. However, the price tag of this iconic car looks like a bargain if we consider the value a proud owner of this tough off-roader will get in return.
