2019 Jeep Wrangler review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Jeep Wrangler?

The Wrangler is Jeep’s wildly popular 4×4. It's available as a two-door or four-door SUV, the latter known as the Wrangler Unlimited. The two-door model has room for four people, and the four-door seats five. It's powered by a standard 285-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that teams with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available eight-speed automatic. There’s also an optional 270-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that pumps out 295 pounds-feet of torque; it pairs with the eight-speed automatic. Open-air freedom is easily accessible with the Wrangler thanks to its removable doors, fold-down windshield and removable tops. Four-wheel drive is standard, and the Rubicon trim level features upgraded mechanicals for serious off-roading.

What’s New on the 2019 Jeep Wrangler?

Adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning are now included in the available Advanced Safety Group Package.

What Features in the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Are Most Important?

The four-door Wrangler Unlimited is a rugged people hauler that offers a power-sliding top. Looking for more insulation for colder months? A three-piece hardtop with a rear defroster and full-framed doors is available. Cloth seats are standard, but leather upholstery is optional. Heated front seats and a heated steering wheel are also optional. Moving up to the 7- or 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia system adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. With the four-door Wrangler Unlimited, both engines offer 3,500 pounds of maximum towing capacity, but that drops to 2,000 pounds in two-door models. 

Should I Buy the 2019 Jeep Wrangler?

If you’re a first-time Wrangler buyer, note that the high starting price of around $30,000 doesn’t get you many creature comforts. You won’t have power windows, power locks or air conditioning; those features are optional. What you do get, however, is an iconic, durable and rugged 4×4 that’s fun to drive and capable off-road. Its recent redesign for the 2018 model year increased its overall refinement — especially on paved surfaces — without diluting the qualities that make the Wrangler what it is.

Love driving the new Rubicon.

You either get it or you don’t… That’s what you hear from most Jeep Wrangler owners. This is the second addition to our Jeep fleet. No, they are not the most comfortable, if that’s what you are looking for this vehicle is not for you. If you’re looking for great gas mileage, again this vehicle is not for you. However, if you are looking for a fun go anywhere vehicle then the wrangler is for you! Take it out on the trail, out on the beach, or just around town, the Jeep Wrangler is a great vehicle to make memories in.
