UK 4×4 of the Year: Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

While the Leisure Wheels team has been saying that it’s the best out-of-the-box off-roader in terms of value-for-money and off-roading ability, it’s now official! The Jeep Wrangler is the 4×4 of the Year.

The award comes from the UK off-roading publication, 4×4 Magazine, and goes to the Wrangler Unlimited for its off-roading capability, style, equipment and value for money.

“This year’s 4×4 of the Year competition was as competitive as ever. In the Hardcore class, however, first place was a unanimous vote among the judges, with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited taking the class win,” says Nigel Fryatt, editor, 4×4 Magazine.

“Head to head with the Land Rover Defender off-road there’s little to choose, but if you had to live with either on a daily basis, in all-weathers, all traffic conditions, on and off-road, then there’s only one choice. It has to be the Jeep.”

“It’s known the world over, and is widely recognised as one of the greatest 4×4 vehicles ever made, but it’s great to see the Jeep Wrangler continuing to receive top awards such as this one,” says Nigel Land, brand director, Jeep Chrysler UK. “There is still more to come from Wrangler and we look forward to future accolades for this remarkable vehicle.”
