Jeep Wrangler Overview

The Jeep Wrangler is in the compact 4x4 SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) class and is produced by the American motor company Chrysler, under their Jeep division. This is a great off road vehicle with brilliant off road performance, but its on road performance is lacking somewhat. Its reputation for off road ability is great and is a good buy if that’s what you are looking for. This vehicle has a real off road look to it, where none of its competitors can compare with the rugged off road look it has.

Jeep Wrangler History

The Jeep Wrangler was first built in 1987 to replace the Jeep CJ. The first model: YJ (1987-95) was designed to be more comfortable and a better drive on the road than its predecessor, to hopefully boost sales of this type of vehicle. The YJ is easy to identify with its square headlights and the window wipers resting on the windscreen. Along with the Wrangler name on the vehicle, each model has the specific version name next to it, i.e. YJ, TJ or JK. The TJ (1997-2006) was brought out in 97, as there was no Jeep Wrangler for 1996. This model had improvements made to the suspension and got rid of the square headlights as they were a controversial addition to the previous model. They returned to the circle headlights of the CJ. In 1993 the 3-speed automatic was replaced with the 4-speed. There were only minor adjustments made to this model throughout its time, but a change from AMC parts were made in 2006. The JK (2007 - present) was a complete re-design of the Wrangler, making it much larger than its predecessors. This is the current version on the market and in production. The vehicle has so many computer operated features compared to previous models, and comes with stability control features.

These vehicles can be greedy on the fuel with the diesel engines being the best economically. Taking into consideration the age of the vehicle, the engine size and type of fuel will determine exactly how economical it actually is.
