Rugged, old-school off-roader

Best bits

  • Looks cool inside and out
  • Four-door is one of the only five-seat convertibles you can buy
  • Pretty much unstoppable off-road

Not so great

  • Pretty uncomfortable and cumbersome on-road
  • Two-door is woefully impractical
  • Relatively expensive to buy and run

Overall verdict

"The Wrangler story started way back in the 1940s with the birth of the original Willys Jeep. This was a rugged utility vehicle that took the American military over inhospitable lands in all four corners of the globe, made all the more inhospitable by the fact that they were probably having some sort of war with the natives of the area at the time."

Yes, things have changed since the 40s, but the character and the ethos remain. The iconic upright shape has clear links, and rather than following the crowd of newer SUVs and watering down the ruggedness in pursuit of luxury and sophistication, the Wrangler is still a no-nonsense, rufty-tufty, weapons-grade off-roader. This thing will go places that owners of regular SUVs would fear to even think about, let alone tread.


It also has a few party-pieces up its sleeve that are inherited from its ancestor. Each version has a roof that’s removable in some way (a variety of different options are available on that score, from a folding fabric soft-top to a removable hard-top), and if you really want to open yourself up to the elements, you can also remove both the windscreen and the doors if you so wish - try doing that on an Audi Q5. You’ve also got a spare wheel bolted onto the side-hinged tailgate. No crummy pot of sealant here.


Two body styles are available. The two-door looks good but is woefully impractical, so we’d point you towards the much bigger four-door, which is much better on practicality, not much more expensive and still has loads of charm. Two engines are available, one petrol and one diesel. Both are pretty punchy, and which you prefer will be a personal thing, but we reckon most buyers will probably be better off with the diesel due to its low-down pulling power and better fuel economy.


It should be said that the Wrangler's focus on ruggedness means it’s not a civilised car, especially compared to regular SUVs at the same (rather lofty) price point. The ride is jittery, the handling’s untidy, the cabin is noisy and the interior is more functional than flashy. So, if you’re an average SUV buyer who’s merely looking for a stylish family car, pretty much anything else on the market will probably suit you better: those looking for a left-field SUV choice will be biting off way more than they can chew with the Jeep.


That which the Wrangler does, though, it does very well indeed, and it’s no accident that this car has legions of dedicated fans the world over.

Is the Jeep Wrangler right for you?

If you’re the sort of person who spends your weekends belting along green lanes and winching yourself up mountains, rather than nipping down to Starbucks and getting your nails done, then the Wrangler could well be for you. If you’re not that dedicated to the off-roading cause, however, then it very probably isn’t.


There aren’t many cars of any price that can do what the Wrangler can do off-road. It’s packing all manner of mud-plugging hardware that allows it to venture along terrain and up slopes that many people wouldn’t think possible in a car. What’s more, it also looks really cool and is dripping with charm and heritage.


However, this ability in the rough stuff means it's very compromised on the road in terms of comfort, handling and refinement. It’ll also cost you more to buy and run than many rivals, and it won’t give you as much practicality or kit. It’s safety record is also woeful. Those after a left-field family car need not apply. Those after an off-roading icon really should, though.

What's the best Jeep Wrangler model/engine to choose?

The first choice you need to make is an easy one. The car comes in two main forms, the two-door and the four-door. The four-door is much bigger, much roomier and has a much bigger boot, yet it doesn’t cost all that much more to buy or run. Seems like a no-brainer to us.


There’s a fifty-fifty choice in the engine department too, either a 200PS diesel or a 272PS petrol. Both are powerful enough, and the petrol is much smoother, while the diesel delivers better fuel consumption, that edges it for us, so the diesel gets the nod. Both engines come with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, so there’s no choice to make there.


Regarding trim level, we’d avoid entry-level Sport trim because it misses out on a few things you’ll want. The next level Up, Sahara, checks all the necessary boxes, so that’s the one that’ll suit most regular buyers. However, a decent proportion of buyers will be hardcore off-roading enthusasts, and if you’re one of those, you’ll want the range-topping Rubicon because it gets all sorts of rufty-tufty off-roading hardware.

What other cars are similar to the Jeep Wrangler?

Over the years, the Wrangler has only had one real rival, another car derived from ancient military field transport: the Land Rover Defender. Otherwise, genuine hardcore off-roader rivals are hard to find. The Suzuki Jimny is much smaller and much cheaper, while the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is much more expensive. However, if you’re simply after an SUV rather than an off-roader, there are countless choices, the Audi Q5 and Volkswagen Tiguan, to name but two.
