Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler skips over the on-road part of the driving test, and heads straight for the hills.

Pros
The undisputed off-road champion
Singular style
Smooth and strong V-6
A few concessions to modernity inside

Cons
Rough-and-tumble ride
Poor on-road handling
Expensive high-end editions
Remarkably poor safety scores
Soft tops are fussy to use

The Jeep Wrangler is completely redesigned for 2018. Note that this review covers the new Wrangler. The previous-generation model, the Wrangler JK, is covered separately.

PROS
Unrelentingly capable off-road
Maintains the rugged Jeep character
Increased capability and comfort compared to old models
Extensive customization options from the factory and aftermarket

CONS
Mild towing capability for an otherwise highly capable rig
Less cargo space than some conventional crossovers
Standard V6 engine is a little underwhelming

By:

Pros
There are few vehicles more capable off-road than the Wrangler JK. Equipped with removable doors, a removable roof, and a fold-down windshield, the four-wheel-drive Wrangler JK is one of the most fun and proficient ways to explore off the beaten path or to feel the wind in your hair. It’s also hard not to fall for the Wrangler JK’s charming and simple design, which can trace its roots back to the Willys MB Jeep of World War II fame.

Cons
The Wrangler JK’s off-road capability comes at the cost of its on-road manners. Live front and rear axles do the Wrangler JK’s ride quality no favors. The body also rolls precariously in turns, and the stability-control system regularly cuts in to prevent the droptop SUV from actually rolling over. Wind noise is exceptionally loud at highway speeds, and this Jeep drinks gas like it’s at an open bar. The available touchscreen infotainment system also is slow to respond to inputs and suffers from poor ergonomics.
