Description

Why update the Jeep Wrangler?
The 2011 and earlier Wranglers had a bit of a reputation for being underpowered and sluggish on the road, not ideal for a 4x4 in today’s age of school runs and pavement climbing outside the rugby.
Not only that but the 4.0-litre straight six, popular with people who like to climb over boulders in forests for YouTube, had the fuel consumption of a punctured oil tanker. Something needed to be done.
Jeep has responded and literally put the car on steroids, adding over 40% more power and a new gearbox to this edition. And despite the extra power, the car is also much kinder to your wallet.
The new oily bits
Your Jeep Wrangler will still have six cylinders burning your precious petrol but now they’re arranged in a V and they only displace 3.6-litres. Still nothing to sniff at. The aluminum Pentastar V6 is lighter than the unit it replaces and drives all four massive tyres through a new five-speed automatic gearbox.
0 – 100km/h drops to 8.1 seconds, which doesn’t sound fast, but in a car that’s noticeably high off the tarmac, with less than optimal offroad-biased tyres and suspension, that 8.1 seconds feels relatively frightening. In-gear acceleration is even more impressive and to be honest I ran out of bravery a few times after putting my foot to the floor.
Acceleration is aurally enjoyable though, with a gnarly V6 growl filling the cabin, and suddenly you’re going a lot faster than your brain thinks is a good idea. It’s actually quite fun.
New Jeep Wrangler 3.6 V6 power specs
With 209 kW and 347 Nm available, it’s no slouch. However, even though the engine is more efficient, the car is still not set up for ideal consumption. With the aerodynamic properties of a shed, coupled with offroad tyres, claimed consumption is 11l/100km on average, but I saw around 15 as a result mostly town driving (and stabbing the throttle).
It’s much quieter
The engine is noticeably quiet at idle. Apparently, the new engine has all-new externals (power steering pump, alternator and air-con compressor) to be mounted directly to the engine with no accessory brackets.
The interior has also been upgraded
If you’re the sort of person who has a power-hose tucked away in the garage for spraying the dog or your kids or whatever, you’ll love the Wrangler’s utilitarian interior spec. It’s a little plasticky in places but it feels pretty bulletproof and of course hose-downable.
All the creature comforts are stacked in a huge centre, um, stack, which lords over the top of the dash like a Michigan skyscraper. Newly redesigned for this model, it certainly brings the range more up to date while retaining that indestructible feel.
The roof panels are not just roof panels. They’re FREEDOM PANELS, ya hear. They can be clipped on and off to give you more FREEDOM. They’re actually damn cool and you can then drive past Camps Bay and everyone can see your face better, you good looking so and so.
4x4 features and capability
The Jeep Wrangler still offers much to the serious off road enthusiast. With a lowered first gear and customisable axle ratios as mentioned, coupled with excellent approach (35degrees), breakover (22) and departure angles (28), you can feel confident in going out and making Youtube videos for yourself.
I do like the way the tyres protrude from the car at each corner. The bodywork is well out of the way. Sticking the tyres to the rest of the car of the Wrangler Sport and Sahara models are the Dana 30 front axle and Dana 44 rear axle.
The Command-Trac® NV241 part-time, two-speed transfer case features a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model features heavy-duty Dana 44 front and rear axles and the Rock-Trac® NV241 two-speed transfer case with a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio.
Should you buy a Jeep Wrangler?
I do believe that most, if not all, of the time people buy cars that fit their personality. The Jeep Wrangler has a lot of personality. It remains a very “cool” 4x4 in world full of German luxo-barges and our dear South African bakkies. It has strong presence on and offroad and remains a seriously capable machine
