The Jeep Wrangler has new advancements and features that allow it to deliver even better performance and accommodation while sitting in the driver's seat. If you want to discover all this model offers, there are a few important features to review.

Performance

The 2021 Wrangler comes standard with a 3.6-litre V6 engine, which delivers 285 horsepower with 260 pound-feet of torque. This engine is available with an eTorque mild-hybrid assist, which is optional if you're seeking more power under the hood. There are also additional powertrains available, which include a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, which generates 270
horsepower.

Those who want to tackle even more challenging settings on or off the road can select the 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine, which is built to deliver up to 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. A turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine is also available and is paired with two electric motors. This engine delivers an impressive amount of acceleration and packs 375 horsepower with 470 pound-feet of torque. The turbocharged 6.4-litre V8 engine is another consideration for those who want 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.

Many of the powertrains available feel energetic and lively to ensure you never feel weighed down. The V6 engines offer perfect acceleration at lower speeds. The SUV also feels composed while driving on winding roads and has minimal body roll. Drivers will also discover that the firm brakes deliver better stopping power than expected. Each trim comes with nine inches of ground clearance to make it easy to tackle different types of terrain. Its off-road capabilities are also better than previous models due to specific features like rock rails, limited-slip and locking differentials, and four-wheel-drive systems.

Safety

Although this generation may be a sporty and athletic vehicle for thrill-seekers, it still has a high level of safety to reduce the risk of collisions. Some of the top safety features that come with each trim include Traction Control, a Rollover Protection System, Electronic Stability Control, and Brake Assist. A rearview camera also comes with the Wrangler for increased visibility while backing out of tight spaces.

A host of available safety features are also offered for those who want extra bells and whistles that boost their confidence with how well they operate the vehicle. These optional features include rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking.

Interior Features

There are plenty of tech tools and gadgets you'll find in the Wrangler to ensure you're accommodated in many ways. The vehicle offers a lot more advanced technology and features compared to previous generations, which makes it more competitive in its class.

The 5-inch infotainment screen comes with intuitive menu layouts, which are simple and have crisp graphics. Three different touchscreens are available and they're within reach of the driver's seat to ensure you don't have to stretch over too far. Each control on the dashboard is water-resistant, which offers peace of mind as you spend time in the mud and near water.

Those who are seeking additional features can opt for the power-folding soft top, extra USB ports, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, dual-zone automatic climate control, and air conditioning. You can also upgrade to larger screens with the 7- and 8.4-inch touch screens available.

Comfort

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler offers excellent visibility in all directions, which allows the cabin to feel more spacious in each row. The high ground clearance also allows you to sit higher than most cars on the road, which makes it easy to get a better view in every direction.
The vehicle comes with four seats and has an upright shape, which makes it easy to have a lot more space overhead for tall passengers in the front or back. Each seat in the vehicle is also comfortable and offers support to ensure you can maintain your posture and avoid strain on your body while driving long distances.

Exterior Features

This Wrangler continues to be recognizable because of its boxy frame and shape, which makes it look edgy and athletic. In addition, the model shows off a classic design with large circle headlights and a hardtop that is easy to remove. The ribbed grille is one of the main features that make it easy to spot the car from a distance and allows it to look sporty.

The vehicle also stands out for its large wheel wells and oversized tires, proving it's ready to tackle challenges both on and off the road.

Previous Generations

Previous generations of the Jeep Wrangler have had limited trim levels and fewer tech tools in the cabin. Many of the features could also get damaged easily while spending time in the great outdoors. Today, the surfaces suffer from a lot less wear and tear because they're more durable and hardwearing.

The 2020 model delivers impressive off-road capability and has traditional Jeep styling. It delivers excellent handling and a firm ride with a power-sliding top available.

Those who own the 2019 model will discover the vehicle delivers 285 horsepower from a 2.0 litre 4-cylinder, 3.6-litre V6 engine. It delivers brisk acceleration and has a spacious interior on the four-door models. The ride is a lot firmer on this model, and it's known to have poor fuel economy compared to the latest generations. This model also is the first generation to offer adaptive cruise control and forward-collision warning for increased safety while operating the vehicle.

Jeep continues to push the limits and remain competitive as it evolves and adopts new features and technology. It proves that a vehicle can be advanced and still get dirty in outdoor settings for those who want a versatile car that holds up well to punishing conditions outside.
