You are deep in the forest and pave new paths with a caravan of friends who share your passion for adventure on landing and terrain. Among the group, there are as many die-hard Tacoma fans as there are 4Runner and Cherokee enthusiasts. However, no one can match your rig or its sense of adventure, and that’s because nothing compares to it 2022 Jeep Wrangler.
The Wrangler is an integral part of American history that got its start in World War II when the US military requested a light reconnaissance vehicle. Willys Quad was designed and delivered in just 75 days, and forever sealed its place in the United States heritage. The first “jeep” eventually made its way to the civilian market, giving drivers across the country the freedom to roam and a penchant for adventure. That’s really true today when you look at 2022’s long list of off-road components and its famous four-wheel drive technology that keeps the legend and its heritage alive.
Redefines Quad: 4X4 systems
Quad from World War II set the standard for four-wheel drive and placed the Jeep at the helm of the segment. Today, Jeep retains that position with the 2022 Wrangler, which offers three exceptional four-wheel drive systems. Command-Trac, Selec-Trac and Rock-Trac four-wheel drive systems allow you to equip the Wrangler with the system that best suits your needs, whether you are looking for a part-time adventurer or if you are full-throttle on the trail.
Command-Trac is Wrangler’s standard part-time four-wheel drive system and is mated to the next generation Dana front and rear axles. The two-speed gearbox has a low-gear ratio of 2.72: 1 which provides torque to all four wheels to maximize grip when you need it most. By adding the available Trac-Lok differential to the rear, the Command-Trac system’s versatility is increased by increasing the torque in terrain with low traction such as snow, mud and sand.
Wrangler’s Selec-Trac system, which is available on most trims, also has a two-speed gearbox and a low-gear ratio of 2.72: 1. But with the full-time four-wheel drive mode that you can simply “set and forget”, the Selec-Trac system automatically switches between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive as needed. By constantly sending power to the front and rear wheels, the system optimizes Wrangler’s performance, traction and efficiency.
Extreme adventurers will find everything they need with Rubicon’s standard Rock-Trac four-wheel drive, which, like the Selec-Trac system, is full-time. Rock-Trac, however, stands out with its low gear ratio of 4: 1 for improved terrain performance that provides more torque to give you greater control and grip just when needed. The system works effortlessly with Rubicon’s Dana 44 heavy front and rear axles, electronic locking differentials front and rear, 33-inch off-road tires and front swivel disconnection to make Rubicon smooth and agile on even the most technical and demanding terrain.
The Heartbeat of a Warrior: Power
Jeep gives you the choice of power on the 2022 Wrangler range with three award-winning engines. The proven 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine is a legend in the Jeep series and continues to impress with its ability to add low torque for smooth acceleration and outstanding performance on the trail. The figures are not with Pentastar driving out 285 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque and a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
Taking the step up to the 2.0-liter turbo means more torque and better off-road performance with its 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. However, this pales in comparison to Wrangler’s stunning 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine that delivers 442 lb-ft of torque and 260 horsepower, making the diesel-powered Wrangler strong, powerful and incredibly efficient.
If you’re looking for a power lift, look no further than the Four Wheelers SUV 2022 – Wrangler Rubicon 392. The Wrangler 392 is a power pack on wheels and the only Wrangler with HEMI under the hood. The 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine is a true beast that roars to life to deliver 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque for instant acceleration and exceptional ability on and off the trail. Have you ever heard of a Wrangler starting from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds? Now you have, and it’s thanks to HEMI and Wrangler 392’s unique Hydro-Guide Air Induction System – a functional hood scoop that improves performance.
Puts you in control: Select-Speed Control and Off-Road +
With over 80 years of experience in building adventure-ready rigs, Jeep knows the freedom that comes with maintaining control while sitting in the driver’s seat. This control gives you the confidence to explore new paths and say “yes” to more adventures. That’s why Jeep equips the 2022 Wrangler with unique tools such as Selec-Speed Control and Off-Road +.
Selec-Speed Control is standard when the Wrangler is equipped with an automatic transmission. The tool gives you more control over the Wrangler in the 4LO by adjusting the engine torque and applying a light brake pressure to help you maintain a safe speed. The Off-Road + button works at higher speeds by adjusting the throttle response, traction control and transmission shift points to optimize Wrangler’s performance long after the pavement has run out.
A virtual spotter: TrailCam
If you have spent any time on the trail, you know the importance of having a spotter to help you navigate narrow areas or technical terrain. 2022 The Wrangler makes this easier than ever with its TrailCam forward-facing terrain camera. The camera equips the Wrangler with a virtual spotter, which gives you a clear overview of the terrain in front of you via the expansive 8.4-inch touch screen in the middle.
Vital protection: Ski plates in steel
Navigating technical terrain and obstacles on the trail poses a threat to all vehicle chassis. A wrong move and a large boulder can tear off the bumper when you go down, or a tree branch can puncture the fuel tank. Jeep mitigates these risks by equipping the 2022 Wrangler with steel slide plates that provide strength and durability while protecting the Wrangler’s important components.
An immersive driving experience: Design
Just as Wrangler’s famous four-wheel drive system and award-winning powertrains continue their legacy, so does its iconic design. 2022 Wrangler continues to offer an immersive driving experience that can not be beat when you pave a new path deep in the forest. This experience is thanks to Wrangler’s removable roof options, including the Sunrider hardtop, which allows you to easily get a glimpse of the sky at the touch of a button. Choosing half-doors is another great way to get in touch with nature by expanding your visibility for a real feeling of outdoor freedom wherever you go.
The adventure rings, will you answer?
For those with a sense of wanderlust and a passion for nature, there is no bigger vehicle than the Jeep Wrangler. Wrangler is an American emblem of freedom and exploration, and gives drivers the courage to explore the great beyond and to travel wherever the wind takes them. The 2022 Wrangler makes this possible with its many off-road components, capable powertrains and legendary four-wheel drive systems.
So, when the adventure demands, what will you drive? There is nothing like exploring the open road with the wind in your hair and the sun on your face and knowing that you have all the tools at hand to pursue your wildest dreams. This is what it means to respond to the call from the Wrangler adventure; that’s what it means to let freedom roam. What are you waiting for?
