In a world of soft-road-only car-based crossovers, the Wrangler is a tough-as-nails off-road expert. Four-wheel drive is standard, as are a 285-hp 3.6-liter V-6 and a six-speed manual; a five-speed automatic is optional.
Two- and four-door “Unlimited” models are offered, both with a choice of soft or hard convertible tops.The Rubicon gets front and rear locking differentials, a 4.0:1 low-gear ratio, and a disconnecting front anti-roll bar for wheel articulation and rock-crawling prowess

On the highway, aerodynamics and ride choppiness are issues. Getting to 80 mph requires 15.2 seconds; lifting off the throttle at 80 mph erases speed so quickly it’s like tapping the brake pedal. Add a little crosswind and steering the Wrangler becomes a busy exercise. At that speed, the ride quality borders on traumatic. At any speed over 60 mph, the cacophony renders the optional Alpine sound system an utter waste of $945.
True to form—and slightly hamstrung by a green engine—this Wrangler wheezed its way to 60 mph in 8.4 seconds, 0.6 to 0.8 second slower than the aforementioned Rubicons (which had the advantage of 4.10:1 axles) and passed through the quarter-mile mark in 16.6 seconds at 83 mph. Braking from 70 mph required 209 feet,and on highway, aerodynamics and ride choppiness are issues. Getting to 80 mph requires 15.2 seconds; lifting off the throttle at 80 mph erases speed so quickly it’s like tapping the brake pedal.
Admittedly, we didn’t do extensive off-roading with this one, but what we did do constituted the happiest moments we spent with it. While this 75th version wouldn’t be quite as unstoppable as the hard-core Rubicon, with its disconnectable front anti-roll bar, locking front and rear differentials, beefy skid plates, and more, we felt nothing but confidence venturing down unfamiliar trails in the Angeles National Forest.
