2018 Jeep Wrangler Review

For adventures outside of the city, you need to have a vehicle that can handle the road ahead whether it's paved or not. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler can handle this and much, much more.

To delve into the many features that make the Wrangler stand out, our team at Manhattan Jeep Chrysler Dodge Ram has put together this review. Let's get started by looking at what makes this exploratory model move.

Performance Specifications

All nine trim levels of the 2018 Wrangler come equipped with a 3.6-L Pentastar® V6 engine. It's standardly paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and 4x4 drive. This configuration gets the Wrangler an EPA-estimated 17 city/21 highway MPG.

This engine has exceptional power output in order to keep up with its adventurous drivers. Standardly, you can expect a horsepower of 285 and a torque of 260 lb-ft. With power like this, you'll be able to tow a maximum of 3,500 pounds and carry a payload of 1,000 pounds when properly equipped.

One additional benefit to the mechanical configuration in this model is its fuel tank capacity. The standard fuel tank capacity is 18.6 gallons, which will give you enough fuel for all the adventures that land you out of gas station range. The enlarged 22.5-gallon tank, standard in the 4-door Wranglers, will take this to the next level.

On-and-Off Pavement Capabilities

The Jeep Wrangler lineup includes nine different trim levels that are all ready and eager to hit the road, whether that road is made of asphalt or dirt. Included in this lineup in the Rubicon, which is geared more towards the outdoors with the following off-roading specifications:

  • Crawl Ratio: 73.1:1
  • Water Fording Depth: Up to 30 inches
  • Ground Clearance: 10 inches
  • Approach Angle: 42.2°
  • Breakover Angle: 25.8°
  • Departure Angle: 32.3°

As a recipient of Four Wheeler Magazine's title of Best 4x4 Vehicle Of The Decade, the Rubicon is made for the road less traveled by. These specifications are made possible by its standard Tru-Lok® electronic locking differentials, Mud-Terrain T/A® tires, and electronic sway bar disconnect and rock rails.

Jeep Wrangler Safety

The 2018 Wrangler has a number of standard advanced safety features that keep you and your passengers safe no matter what terrain you're on.

Standard in this vehicle is an advanced multistage front airbag system. This smart system uses advanced sensors to determine the severity of an impact and match the airbag output to provide the exact amount of protection.

Also, standard are several other preventative systems like electric roll mitigation and electric stability control. These systems help stabilize your vehicle on all terrain to correct over- and under-steer and prevent rollovers. These systems are very helpful when your towing large loads or are on uneven terrain.
