CARS.COM — The Jeep Wrangler has always been a compromise vehicle — something that had quirks you put up with as an owner because you loved the package as a whole. Nothing can do what a Wrangler does in terms of open-air motoring (no roof, no doors, no windshield) or off-road, go-anywhere ability. But if you own a current Jeep Wrangler, should you buy a new one? It’s an expensive proposition, but is it worth the extra money?
Yes, it is. There are a bunch of new features that make the 2018 Wrangler JL a better rig than the 2017 model. As someone who’s owned one for almost three years now and who’s driven the new one extensively, I’ve come up with a list of things that current JK owners are going to love about the new JL.
