The 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, the Ultimate Sport Utility Vehicle, Is Available Now at Route 1 USA

The Jeep legend was built on the amazing durability and capability of the now-iconic Jeep Wrangler. The little four-seat Wrangler is still climbing up, over and through any obstacles in its path, but it know has a larger, four-door, five-passenger version in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The same remarkable go-anywhere, do-anything in a no-nonsense sort of way still applies. Today the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is available in wide range of trims, from the stripped down Wrangler Unlimited Sport to the (relatively) luxe Sahara and the rugged Rubicon.

Power and Performance

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited relies on one engine for all purposes, but it's a beauty. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 makes 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission with hill-start assist is standard, while a five-speed automatic, with hill-start assist and hill-descent control - is an available option. You don't buy a Wrangler for spectacular fuel economy, but given the nature of its drivetrain, it still posts a respectable 17 mpg city and 21 mpg highway. Four-wheel drive, with both high- and low-range gearing, is standard. If you opt for the Rubicon, you can take advantage of uniquely short gearing and a special transfer case with an extra-low crawl ratio over rock-strewn trails. The Wrangler Unlimited is meant for rock-climbing and desert running, but it has a decent towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds.

Features and Options

As noted earlier, the Wrangler Unlimited comes in three main trims: Sport, Sahara and Rubicon, but there are multiple variations on each. In fact, there are 13 distinct Wrangler Unlimited models available for 2017.

  • The Sport is stripped down to the essentials. Features include A/C, an eight-speaker sound system, on/off road tires, skid plates and tow hooks and a full-size spare tire. Doors are removable and the windshield folds down, and there's a 60/40 split-folding, tumble-forward rear seats. Adding a Power Convenience package gets you modern amenities like power windows and locks and keyless entry. The Cold Weather package includes heated front seats and remote engine start.
  • The Sahara edition of the Wrangler Unlimited include the Power Convenience features, along with larger 18-inch wheels, hood insulation for a quitter cabin, automatic LED headlights and foglights, satellite radio and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. It also has grab handles for rear passengers and tubular side steps to make it easier to climb in and out.
  • Then there's the Rubicon Wrangler, which is built for serious off-roading. Along with the Power Convenience features, it has 17-inch wheels and special tires, along with an undercarriage built for climbing and crawling. There's a heavy-duty Dana 44 front axle and shorter 4.10 axle gearing (standard with the manual transmission; optional with the automatic), as well as an upgraded transfer case with a lower crawl ratio, electronic front and rear locking differentials, an electronically disconnecting front sway bar, rock rails, automatic LED headlamps and the under-hood insulation. There's also a handy 115-volt outlet to plug in your power tools or electric stove. 

Any of the Wrangler Unlimited models can be outfitted with an excellent, nine-speaker Alpine sound system and the Connectivity package. This adds a tire-pressure monitor display, Bluetooth phone connectivity and an upgraded version of the UConnect infotainment touchscreen that includes a USB port, media player interface, navigation and 28 GB of storage space for music and other multimedia for those times you're out of reach of a cell signal but still need your music!
