Overview: There are several vehicles wearing Jeep’s sacred logo, but to the faithful there is only one that matters, the vehicle in the ever-expanding family that most resembles the rugged no-frills, go-anywhere, do-anything ethos of the World War II original. As such, the Wrangler rolls along a very cautious evolutionary line. Powertrain updates are generally welcomed by Wranglerites, but interior and exterior changes that move the vehicle’s character toward civilization too rapidly are viewed with suspicion and even outright rejection. Example: When the Wrangler replaced the CJ series in 1987, its rectangular headlights were condemned as heretical. Consequently, the square fenders, rectilinear sheetmetal, exposed hinges, and utilitarian interior appointments persist well into the age of luxury and connectivity. Wranglers come in two body styles, the basic two-door and the four-door Wrangler Unlimited. Both are propelled by a 3.6-liter V-6 (285 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque), sending torque to all four wheels via a six-speed manual (standard) or five-speed automatic transmission.
