The 2017 Jeep Wrangler is available as a two-door or in a four-door Unlimited trim (listed separately), with four main trims to choose from. The Base Sport model starts at around $24,990, and comes with very few amenities. In fact, it's kind of annoying that buyers have to upgrade to the $27,990 Sport S in order to get air conditioning.
However, opting for a Sahara trim at a staring price of $31,440 will yield a decent amount of features. These include:
- 18-inch alloy wheels
- Upgraded cloth upholstery
- Heated mirrors and locks
- Keyless entry
- An auto-dimming rearview mirror
- Satellite radio
The range-topping Rubicon comes with absolutely brutal off-road ability. Upgraded axles, detachable sway bars, off-road tires, and a spate of other details give it the ability to conquer virtually every obstacle owners can conjure up from the factory. The Rubicon is also available with premium features such as leather seats and automatic climate control. But the top-end Wrangler starts at $34,640 and can crest $45,000, which may be a little steep for an off-roader.
All Wranglers come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that’s rated at 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. And both the five-speed automatic and the six-speed manual versions do just fine both on and off road.
