Unrelentingly capable off-road
Rugged Jeep character
Extensive customization options from the factory and aftermarket

Cons
Steering is slow and feels loose, especially on the Rubicon trim
Lots of wind and tire noise at highway speeds
Less cargo space than some conventional crossovers

By:

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is what the Jeep brand is all about—with roots that date back to the original World War II–era military vehicle—and its off-road capability borders on amazing. While it looks much like the first-generation Jeep that was created to support our troops, it has evolved into a one-of-kind four-wheel-drive vehicle, with tech and luxury to match its off-road chops. It offers everything from air conditioning to leather.

Pros
Throwback styling, heroic off-road capability, you can take off the doors and roof.

Cons
Tight cabin, lots of wind noise, trucklike compared with other SUVs.
