Overview2016 JEEP WRANGLER
The Jeep Wrangler is a two- or four-door sports utility vehicle that is designed to offer strong performance capability off-road while also being competent on-road. Wranglers are well-known for being rugged and no-frills, but the 2016 Wranglers do offer a few creature comforts inside on certain trims. As has been standard with the Wrangler since its inception, this model year of Wrangler offers fully removable doors and top.
Off-Road AbilityThe 2016 Jeep Wrangler delivers some of the most powerful off-road ability in its class with a standard 4WD system that easily handles most adverse conditions. The Wrangler's front and rear solid axles and body-on-frame construction make it durable and rugged off-pavement. High ground clearance and minimal overhangs enable it to deal with obstacles that would stop many other SUVs.
Ownership CommunityThe Wrangler is well-known for having an enthusiastic ownership community. Its unfailing popularity is largely what keeps the Wrangler high in demand with little to no regard for the year or mileage. Reviews that criticize the Wrangler's ride and fuel economy are often overridden by happy owners who love everything else about it.
Engine and PerformanceA standard V-6 engine making 285 horsepower is the Wrangler's main power source, and it can be paired with either a five-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual. Either pairing is capable enough of lugging the heavy Wrangler around. The Wrangler touts being off-road ready, so part-time 4WD with high and low gearing is standard equipment across all models and trims.
Fuel EconomyThe Wrangler is a powerful and competent off-road SUV with unique features that are unmatched in its class; however, fuel economy is one area where it falls short of several competitors. The combined fuel economy on the four-door Unlimited is around 18 mpg with both automatic and manual versions getting 16 city mpg but 21 highway mpg with the manual and 20 highway mpg with the automatic. The two-door models also get 18 mpg combined with 17 city and 21 highway, but these numbers don't change regardless of the transmission.
Cargo and Space LimitationsNeither the two-door nor the four-door Wrangler is especially spacious inside. The two-door model is predictably the tighter of the two, with only 12.8 cubic feet behind the rear seat. It's also a bit tight to get anyone other than children into the rear seat. The four-door has about 70.6 cubic feet behind the rear seat. Both models have narrow front seats with both the driver and passenger sitting fairly close to the upright windshield.
Sparsely Equipped Base ModelBase models of the Wrangler are fairly sparsely equipped, and models with the cloth top tend to be very noisy inside. The ride on every version of the Wrangler is also rough, although the longer Unlimited wheelbase does help. Upgrading at least to the Sports S trim is necessary to get such creature comforts and conveniences as air conditioning and power windows and locks.
