2019 Jeep Wrangler Redesign

Sponsored Links

The legendary Wrangler is one of the most capable SUVs around; the all-new JL improves on the breed. The Wrangler can have two or four doors and is now made from stronger and lighter materials, with improvements to interior comfort. A 285-hp 3.6-liter V-6 pairs with either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic. In a first for Wrangler, full-time all-wheel drive is an option. A 270-hp hybrid turbo-four is available; a diesel variant is promised. The Wrangler JK will live on for 2018.

With its rugged capability and easy access to the open air, the Jeep Wrangler has excelled for decades as the off-road totem of the brand. And to the Jeep faithful, redesigning such an icon, as has been done with the new-for-2018 JL version, will always bring concerns that modernity will dilute the charm of this cherished backwoods four-by-four. Indeed, the new JL advances the formula further than ever before, but die-hard fans of the seven-slot grille shouldn’t fret over what is the most accommodating Wrangler yet.

As we learned during our first drive of the JL model, Jeep did not screw up its latest poster child. But those examples were mostly of the range-topping Rubicon specification that are outfitted with meaty tires and beefier axles for maximum trail swagger. While such capability is central to its mission, the modern Wrangler, through ever-increasing technology and refinement, also has become a unique open-top alternative to conventional SUVs that rarely venture off the beaten path. Reinforcing that truth is the JL’s four-door-only Sahara trim level (Jeep no longer officially refers to the four-door Wranglers as the Unlimited, but the word continues to adorn the side of the vehicle). The Sahara slots just below the Rubicon in the lineup and, for the first time ever in a Wrangler, brings an available full-time all-wheel-drive transfer case for improved traction and stability in day-to-day driving.

Like all JL-generation Wrangler Unlimiteds, the Sahara rides on a 2.4-inch-longer wheelbase than the previous JK Wrangler Unlimited and is some 3.5 inches longer overall. Despite the growth spurt, its steel ladder frame is both stronger and lighter than before, and lightweight aluminum has been employed for its doors, hood, and tailgate skin—the last of these laid over a magnesium frame. At 4469 pounds, our JL test truck weighed 129 pounds less than a similar JK Unlimited we tested.

Where the Sahara breaks with tradition is in its optional $595 Selec-Trac transfer case, which adds an Auto all-wheel-drive mode to the Wrangler’s rear-drive and high- and low-range 4WD settings. As with the Sahara’s standard Command-Trac part-time setup, Selec-Trac features a modest 2.72:1 low-range ratio, and its Dana 30 front and Dana 35 rear stick axles house 3.45:1 gears. Opting for Selec-Trac also tacks on a $595 limited-slip rear differential and requires the new-for-2018 eight-speed automatic transmission ($2000) in place of the standard six-speed manual. Rolling stock consists of 18-inch aluminum wheels wrapped with rather street-friendly Bridgestone Dueler H/T 685 all-terrain tires, size 255/70R-18.

The resulting uptick in performance is significant: Motivated by the standard Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 boasting 285 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque at a rather high 4800 rpm, our Sahara scooted to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 15.2 at 90 mph—improvements of 1.6 and 1.4 seconds (and 7 mph) over the previous JK with its five-speed automatic and Goodyear tires. Even more impressive was the JL’s enhanced grip, which saw skidpad performance rise from the JK’s lowly 0.63 g to 0.73 g and shortened the 70-mph-to-zero braking distance from 209 feet to a more acceptable 176. The latter is also helped by larger 12.9-inch front and 13.4-inch rear disc brakes.
