This off-roader emphasizes rock-crawling over highway comfort, and when it comes to hardcore trailblazing, it's rarely matched. Trim levels include the Sport, Sahara and Rubicon, as well as the four-door Unlimited. Competitors include the Nissan Xterra and Toyota FJ Cruiser. The Wrangler was redesigned for 2007.
New for 2010
For 2010, Jeep has renamed the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited's base model "Sport." Now standard in the Sport are fog lamps, tow hooks, a compass and an outdoor temperature gauge. It also comes equipped with a soft-top that Jeep says is easier to remove, plus an indicator that shows when you're driving economically.
An available three-panel hardtop has removable sections above the driver, front passenger and rear passengers. The standard soft-top has been redesigned for 2010 and now can be removed more easily, according to the automaker. The side doors, available as full or half-size, are removable, and the windshield can be folded down.
