The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is now available at a Jeep dealer near you. The Wrangler has always been a darling amongst off-road enthusiasts due to its incredible off-road handling and rugged design. This 2020 model oozes with personality and is fun to drive whether to the grocery store or the top of a mountain. Jeep offers various trims, including the popular off-road-concentrated Rubicon trim level that is stock with large all-terrain tires, a front electronically disconnected stabilizer bar, and lockable differentials. The most recent generation Wrangler employs the traditional body-on-frame design and is perfectly capable of also handling pavement. The seats are comfortable and supportive with a logical driving position and substantially improved cabin materials. Read on to learn more.
The 3.6L V6 engine is robust and produces enough power to overcome any hurdle but can easily conquer a daily commute without going off-road. The eight-speed automatic transmission transfers smoothly and always feel like it is in the right gear. The body-on-frame construction allows for optimal performance off-road. Although the boxy design creates a lot of road and wind noise, the cabin is much quieter than in previous models with the hardtop logically being a quieter option than the soft top.
The interior of the 2020 Wrangler is designed with comfort in mind. The rear bench reclines to allow for more cargo space when you need it, otherwise seats are supportive for drivers and passengers alike. The climate system is efficient and effective due to the front and rear vents. The interior layout has been refreshed and is intuitive enough to position the numerous controls, especially on the Rubicon model which features various adjustments for off-roading. The 2020 Wrangler also offers an optional 8.4-inch Uconnect system that has one of the best interfaces in the industry. There are multiple charging ports, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.
The Wrangler does not include many standard safety but does give you the option to purchase ones you want. One optional feature is the Cross-Path Detection which warns the driver of approaching cars that fall outside of the driver's view when the gear is in reverse. Another excellent optional safety feature is the ParkSense Rear Park Assist System which audibly alerts the driver of objects approaching from behind to minimize low-speed collisions in parking situations.
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler offers seven trim levels: Sport, Sport S, Sport Altitude, Sahara, Rubicon, Sahara Altitude, and MOAB. The $31,000 Sport base model offers a 5-inch display, 17-inch black wheels, 6-speed manual transmission, all-wheel-drive, Uconnect 3, and ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera. The Sport $34,000 Sport S upgrades to optional satellite radio, 7-inch display, premium soft top, and remote start system.
