Jeep junkies can order a new two-door or four-door Wrangler Unlimited in one of nine colours, three trim options and two engine combinations. Extras to choose from include a 3.73 axle ratio for rock crawling, electronic front sway bar disconnect and an electronic locking rear axle. Apart from its extreme capability, the Wrangler offers outstanding safety and convenience features, interior space, versatility and comfort, on-road refinement, and open-air fun as the only true 4×4 convertible.
The two-door Jeep Wrangler remains the real McCoy when it comes to original, extreme fun-and-freedom machines and is still the only 4×4 with multiple open-air options. The Wrangler Unlimited is the only four-door open-air SUV on the market with room for five adult passengers, giving Jeep loyalists the additional space and versatility that they’ve been looking for in other brands. The two-door Jeep Wrangler and long-wheelbase four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited range retails from R218 568 in the UK and is powered by a 2.8 diesel engine or 3.8 V6 petrol engine.
Winning the coveted title of “Extreme 4×4 of the Year 2010” in 4×4 Magazine’s annual awards ceremony, it is anticipated that Wrangler sales will soar, seeing more and more previously non-Jeep fans invest in the best.
Let’s hope that that the supply and demand principle will bring these character statements to sunny South Africa. In the meantime, hop onto www.jeep.co.uk and use the model configurator to design your dream Wrangler.
