The JL-generation Wrangler is arguably the best go-anywhere SUV yet, available in two- or four-door body styles, and in Sport, Sport S, Sahara or Rubicon trims. All Wranglers come with four-wheel drive and a two-speed transfer case. The diesel-powered Wrangler drives largely like the gasoline I4 and V6 models.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.



Sentiment Score[*] 78%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
There are two new engines, one a 2.0-litre petrol with 268bhp and 400Nm. The interior has also been comprehensively reworked to make it more appealing to a broader audience, reckons Jeep. There are three trim levels and two body styles to choose from; Overland, Sahara and Rubicon, all of which come with either two doors or four.

Sentiment Score[*] 86%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The top-of-the-line Rubicon model has all the off-road goodies I could want. Front and rear locking differentials, full skid plate protection, rock rails and a 4:1 low-range gear ratio. But that doesn't mean the Rebelle Rally is a walk in the park.

  • Best-in-class off-road performance
  • Powerful engine
  • Excellent fuel economy
  • Lack of storage cubbies


Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The diesel Jeep puts out a whopping 442 pound-feet of torque. Four-wheel drive high is enough to scamper up the rocks in the Wrangler diesel. As with other Wranglers, the diesel version is available with a decent amount of driver-assistance tech.

  • Gorgeous off-road performance
  • Powerful diesel engine
  • Easy-to-use Uconnect infotainment system
  • Expensive compared to other Wrangler models


Sentiment Score[*] 68%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The EPA says this Jeep should return 22 miles per gallon in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway. A speedy and smooth stop-start system undoubtedly helps bolster that around-town figure. The Wrangler's chassis may have more in common with a covered wagon than more "modern" vehicles.

  • Powerful diesel engine
  • Superb infotainment system
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Sub-par fuel economy
  • Cramped back seats
