2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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.

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.
