The Wrangler is one of the most fun-to-drive, off-road-capable Jeeps ever made. For open-air driving at the beach, on the trail or even the just on the street, the standard soft top can be folded down or the available hard top can be taken off, the doors can be removed and the windshield can be folded down.
The four-door Wrangler is configurable in either Sport, Sahara and Rubicon trim with standard four-wheel drive. A 285-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine and six-speed manual transmission are standard, and a five-speed automatic is available. Electronic stability control with roll control, traction control, brake assist and hill hold control are standard on all Wranglers. The Sahara offers body color flares, Infinity speakers, remote keyless entry, power window, security alarm and 18-inch wheels. The Rubicon features equipment that off-road enthusiasts usually add anyway, including heavy duty axles, front and rear electronic locking differentials, 32-inch BF Goodrich mud tires, sway bar disconnect system, rock rails and a heavy-duty transfer case with 4:1 low-gear ratio. The available Freedom Top three-piece modular hardtop allows panels to be removed above the driver or passenger. Other options include Dual Top Group, half doors, remote start system, front seat-mounted side air bags, and a multimedia infotainment system with 28-gigabyte hard drive and navigation system.
For 2013, trailer sway damping becomes standard equipment on all trims, and Sahara and Rubicon trims receive new wheels and an auto-dimming rear view mirror.
