While there exist plenty of serious and significant reasons to think twice about the Jeep Wrangler, there are also abundant reasons why the unabashedly all-American 2017 Jeep Wrangler SUV should be ‘love at first sight for you. This vehicle boasts of an extensive factory and after-market parts support, unmistakable styling, fun to drive character, and plenty of variations to choose from. The Wrangler release date should be expected sometime in the middle of 2017, probably in July.
Special models such as the Backcountry, 75th Anniversary, and Black Bear Editions offered for the previous model also return for the 2017 version. Several aesthetic updates have also been gained particularly the new Olive Green interior option available for the Wrangler Sahara trim model. Also, additional colors have been added to the existing palette.
While the Jeep Wrangler – a true American icon akin to no other – offers fun-loving youth an unending freedom of nature, the list of cons that come alongside it is simply unremarkable. Some of these foibles include a noisy interior, missing latest technological and safety features, sloppy on-road handling, mediocre crash test scores, a cumbersome convertible operation, and long braking distances.
But even so, the new 2017 Jeep Wrangler offers plenty of other likable features, too. They include a reputable nameplate, off-road prowess, fun-to-drive character thanks to its old-school mechanical platform, and offers plenty of interior refinement especially if you opt for the top-of-the-range trim models.
Alternatives in this segment are not many, and it’s apparent the Wrangler enjoys these feet. Some of the daring ones include the Toyota 4Runner, the Nissan Xterra, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the Toyota FJ Cruiser. Although the above vehicles feature more comfortable interiors, more secure braking and handling, better crash test scores, and a more up-to-date technology, it’s only the Wrangler that is able to evoke Ike.
