The Powertrain that Drives the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

The 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited sets the standard for off-road capability. While the new Jeeps are designed to handle highways and suburban streets with relative ease and grace, it's on dirt and ice, over rocks or sand and through mud or snow where the Wrangler Unlimited truly shines.

The Wrangler Unlimited is the four-door version of the classic Jeep Wrangler. It has one engine option, but it's one that gets the job done: a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that churns out 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, and features smooth power delivery. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while a five-speed automatic is an available choice.

The Wrangler Unlimited can be equipped with either of two 4x4 systems: the Command-Trac® or Rock-Trac®. The Command-Trac system is designed to deliver equal power to all four wheels, while for more control and more torque, the Rock-Trac is where it's at. Available on the Rubicon model, the Rock-Trac has an NV241 Off-Road transfer case with a 4:1 low gear ratio, Tru-Lok® electronic locking differentials and an electronic sway bar disconnect. All that being said, it goes with saying the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is Trail-Rated®.

The Command-Trac 4x4 system has an NV241 GII transfer case designed for situations where four-wheel power is required or conditions tend to be slick or slippery. It's a shift-on-the-fly system with a 2.72:1 low range for rock crawling and neutral for flat towing.
