: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

Overview

Jeep Wrangler remains an icon, a symbol of "go anywhere" adventure. It's been that way for a long time. Although it has been re-engineered at least a half-dozen times in the intervening 60 years, the Wrangler is still as close as you can get to a direct descendent of the World War II-era Jeep. That said, if you haven't driven a Jeep since your Army days, you might be surprised by how civilized this "general-purpose utility vehicle'' has become. All but the most basic model now come with a six-cylinder engine. A four-speed automatic transmission is available on all models, eliminating the notoriously outdated three-speed automatic that Jeep buyers suffered with for years. You can order four-wheel disc brakes for much better stopping ability. The side mirrors have been massaged for less wind noise and a better view over your shoulder. And many convenience features are available. This isn't the most practical everyday vehicle, however, and may not be the best choice for someone who likes it simply because it's cute. (And it is cute.) Getting in and out is awkward due to its ground clearance. The interior is spartan. The ride quality is rough by today's standards, though many young people won't mind that. And it doesn't handle very well, so care should be excercised, particularly in the rain. The Wrangler is designed primarily for performance off the road. For extreme off-roading, Jeep offers the Wrangler Rubicon. Jeep looked at the aftermarket modifications off-road enthusiasts were making to their Jeeps, and engineered those same features into a turn-key vehicle you can buy (and finance) right off the showroom floor. Built along Jeep's "Go anywhere, do anything" design philosophy, the Rubicon is a 4x4 gem. We found it performed admirably on Hell's Revenge, Cliff Hanger, and other challenging trails around Moab, Utah. Front and rear Dana Model 44 axles with locking differentials, and a transfer case with a stump-pulling 4:1 low-range give the "Ruby" trail capabilities far beyond those of the average SUV.
