2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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.

Great Vehicle

My Wrangler has the 2.0T engine and gets an average of 23 mpg. No issues mechanically at 52,000 miles; it drives like a Jeep-which makes sense. The interior is stylish and comfortable; AC and heat work just fine for Upstate SC climate. The soft top is easy to flip up and total removal isn't that much more trouble. Radio is great, media mode has a slight lag but stays connected once paired each time you use it-it doesn't automatically connect Bluetooth. The only knock I would have is that the USB or USB-C causes the entire radio to short out periodically. I love my Jeep!

Run!!!

My jeep has the death wobble. They have replaced the steering damper twice. I had to get new tires on my own dime because they said the factory tires were causing my steering damper to go bad. This is BS because Jeep partnered with BF Goodrich to use these tires.

3.0

Air conditioning system is terrible

Love this Jeep, however, living in Texas I do not want my air-conditioning system to cut off randomly to let outside air flow through! When it is 95 degrees outside I want continuous cool air blowing. While driving from Houston to Austin I took a picture of my clock every time the outside air would flow into the car it happened 6 times in this heat that is unacceptable! The hvac system Jeep has installed is terrible, I would not recommend this vehicle for that reason!
