2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Jeep Wrangler?

The Wrangler is Jeep’s long-serving 4×4. It’s available as a two- or four-door SUV, the latter known as the Wrangler Unlimited. The two-door model has room for four people, while the Unlimited version seats five.

A standard 285-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine works with a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic. Other available engines include a 270-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder; a 260-hp, turbo-diesel 3.0-liter V-6 and a 470-hp, 6.4-liter V-8. The Wrangler Unlimited 4xe has a plug-in hybrid drivetrain that lets the SUV travel up to 21 miles on electric power alone, according to EPA estimates.

Four-wheel drive is standard, and the Rubicon trim level features upgraded mechanicals for serious off-roading. Wrangler competitors include the Ford Bronco, Toyota 4Runner and Land Rover Defender. The Wrangler Unlimited offers 18.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind its backseat, according to Cars.com’s cargo measurements.

What’s New on the 2022 Jeep Wrangler?

A 4.88:1 axle ratio is optional for Rubicon models with the gas V-6, and Jeep says the cabin air filter can remove 95% of particulates. The Sahara 4xe adds blue tow hooks.

What Features in the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • Folding soft top
  • Push-button start
  • Cloth seats
  • Tilt/telescoping steering wheel
  • Cruise control

Available features include:

  • Power locks, windows and mirrors
  • LED headlights
  • Three-piece hard top
  • Remote start
  • Air conditioning
  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Heated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Alpine premium stereo
  • 7- or 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity
  • Blind spot warning
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Automatic emergency braking

Should I Buy the 2022 Jeep Wrangler?

The Wrangler is a back-to-basics SUV, but that doesn’t mean it comes cheaply. The base two-door model lacks creature comforts like power windows, air conditioning and power locks, but it still starts around $31,000. The more practical Wrangler Unlimited is even pricier. For your money, you get a rugged 4×4 that’s fun to drive, has an iconic look and is extremely capable off-road. Better still, the latest Wrangler is better-behaved than its predecessor on paved surfaces.

I love my Jeep

This is my 2nd Jeep Wrangler. I absolutely love it!!!! I ordered it new, so I have all the bells and whistles I wanted. The SOT is fabulous. It is so fun to drive and I get compliments all the time about how beautiful it is. Receiving ducks and giving out ducks is a blast. The Jeep wave is awesome, too. Wranglers also keep their value.

Great Vehicle but Expensive for What it Is

A fun vehicle! Average gas mileage for a vehicle in this class and good reliability. As one would expect this vehicle exceeds off-road or in the snow. The ride is comfortable for what it is and interior space for carrying things is large, even more so with the rear seats folded down. The downside to this vehicle is the price. Wranglers have jumped in cost to the point of being borderline unreasonable. Wranglers are no longer the bargain they used to be.

2023 Jeep 4 door Willys

This review is for a 2023 Jeep Wrangler 4 door Willys. I had traded in my 2008 Jeep Wrangler 4 door Sahara. So I know these Jeep’s not only last a long time, but are reliable. The new Jeep is beautiful, runs well, and is fun to drive. Exceptional on road and off road performer. Snow, rain, sleet, or mud, this Jeep can handle pretty much any conditions.
