Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

The Jeep Wrangler returns for 2014 in all of its rugged glory, retaining its status as the brand's No. 2 seller and an unlikely American automotive legend. Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder suggests some improvements to help keep that legend alive.

What Is the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited?

The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is the four-door, five-seat version of the two-door, four-seat Jeep Wrangler, which is covered separately on Cars.com. The Unlimited is offered in four main trims: Sport, Sport RHD, Sahara and Rubicon. Four-wheel drive is standard on all trims. Competing models include the Nissan Xterra and Toyota FJ Cruiser.

What's New on the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited?

For 2014, the Wrangler Unlimited gets two special-edition models. The first is the Rubicon X, which features a winch-capable front bumper, wider rock rails, black 17-inch aluminum wheels with BFGoodrich tires, a distinctive power dome hood, red tow hooks, heated front seats and black leather upholstery. The second is the Freedom III (based on the Sport) with silver 17-inch alloy wheels, a gray grille, star-in-circle fender badges, rock rails, black fabric upholstery and silver accent stitching.

Other new features include an available Trail Kit with two D-rings, a tow strap, gloves and a storage bag. The Uconnect 6.5-inch touchscreen stereo is available for the Sport trim, along with hard-drive storage, satellite radio, and a 32-inch Tire and Wheel Group with black 17-inch aluminum wheels and off-road tires.

What Features in the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Are Most Important?

Under the hood of the 2014 Wrangler Unlimited, you'll find a 285-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine and a six-speed manual transmission. The manual can be switched for an available five-speed automatic. Four-wheel drive is standard, as are solid front and rear axles and underbody skid plates. Dual locking differentials are optional.

Significant standard features include removable side doors, a fold-down windshield, 16-inch steel wheels, a full-size spare tire with matching wheel mounted on the rear swing-gate, foglights, a floor console with front and rear cupholders and a locking storage bin, a CD stereo with MP3 jack and cruise control. Notable optional features include 17- or 18-inch aluminum wheels, a hard top with removable overhead sections, tubular side steps, heated front seats, a household power outlet, power windows and locks, a navigation system and an Alpine premium stereo.

The Wrangler Unlimited also comes with all-disc antilock brakes with on- and off-road calibrations, an electronic stability system with rollover mitigation technology, traction control, hill-start assist and available front-seat side-impact airbags.

Should I Buy the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited?

The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited lives up to the Wrangler's reputation for impressive off-road capability and rugged convertible styling. Its cargo area is also quite spacious. Due to its design and hardware, the Wrangler Unlimited is noisy and doesn't ride smoothly. This is part of its charm for some Jeep fans, but newcomers might disagree.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
