Jeep’s Wrangler is an iconic model revered for its off-road capability and styling cues that hark back to the American carmaker’s early Willys models.
Despite its rugged appearance, the Wrangler is also a surprisingly adept city car, providing all the technology and equipment needed for a comfortable ride.
Thinking of a Wrangler, but not sure which is for you? With only three variants of the two-door model to choose from, it might not be the most difficult of decisions. But here at Motors.co.uk we have made it even easier and explored all three options so that you don’t have to.
The smart choice for saving money – Jeep Wrangler Sahara
Weighing in at £31,840, the Sahara may be the cheapest of the trio, but it does not skimp on equipment or rugged style.
Featuring the American carmaker’s 2.8-litre CRD diesel engine, the powerful car boasts a smooth five-speed automatic transmission.
Amongst its extensive standard spec are tubular side steps, automatic headlamps, hill descent control and 18-inch Alloy wheels.
However, the fun doesn’t stop there, as the Alpine Audio system with subwoofer guarantees endless entertainment.
The smart choice for value – Jeep Wrangler Overland
At only £1,400 more than the Sahara, the Overland trim brings a luxurious appeal to the Wrangler – without breaking the bank.
Black leather-trimmed bucket seats feature inside this bright white hard top model, while it rolls on the same 18-inch polished satin alloy wheels as the Sahara.
Jeep’s ‘media centre’, including Uconnect, USB connectivity and a 6.5-inch colour touchscreen takes pride of place on the dash, while deep-tint sunscreen glass ensures that the occupants are shaded from the sun and ride in privacy.
The smart choice for technophiles –Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
Costing £33,240 – the same price as the Overland – Jeep describes its Rubicon as having been created for those who want to experience the freedom of the Rock-Trac four-wheel drive in comfort and style.
With a 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine sitting under the bonnet – the larger engine of the trio – it is able to tackle even the toughest of terrain.
The sound system featuring in the Sahara has received an upgrade to the premium seven-speaker Alpine System with Subwoofer, while the Uconnect phone system features voice command.
Quirky features include a cargo compartment floor mat, full metal doors with roll up windows and a smokers kit.
If you’re looking for a Jeep to take off the beaten track, this is your model, as it boasts a host of off-roading equipment.
