Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: 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.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Nostalgic, rugged, all-terrain fun for five is what draws car buyers to the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, the largest Wrangler model. But the 2016 model represents one of the last opportunities to own one. Jeep states that this may be their last update because the model won’t be able to comply with future fuel economy and safety regulations.

What's New for 2016

There’s a new Wrangler Black Bear option and new appearance updates to the Sahara model for 2016.
