Which should you buy, 2020 or 2021? If you’re looking for the all-new models, you’ll obviously have to get a 2021 Wrangler. Otherwise, a $20 increase in exchange for wider feature availability and minor improvements makes a 2021 the smarter choice.
Jeep’s iconic Wrangler off-road SUV enters the 2021 model year with two significant new variants: the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid and the Rubicon 392, the latter powered by a 470-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8 engine. The 2021 Wrangler also gets two new special editions, the 80th Anniversary Edition and Islander.
