2020 Jeep WRANGLER UNLIMITED

Buyer's Guide

History/Overview

The Jeep Wrangler has a deep history, but the four-door Unlimited version is a newer concept conceived to expand this off-roader's appeal. With its longer wheelbase and four doors, it's a more practical vehicle, but that extra length hampers its off-road prowess.

What's New / Key Changes from Last Year

Jeep has added automatic engine start/stop to the Wrangler Unlimited's 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and the 3.6L V6 gets the option of an eTorque mild-hybrid system borrowed from the Ram 1500 pickup truck. There are two new trim packages on offer, too, called Willys and Black-and-Tan.

Available Trims

Jeep makes the Wrangler Unlimited in Sport S, Sahara and Rubicon trims. Engine choices are between the 2.0L turbo four and 3.6L V6. The basic V6 is the only one offered with a manual transmission. The four-cylinder and new eTorque V6 are sold only with an eight-speed automatic. Four-wheel drive is standard no matter what.

Standard Features

Sport S trim starts out with push-button engine start, underbody skid plates, part-time 4x4, fog lights, 17-inch steel wheels, eight-way manual driver's seat with lumbar, cloth upholstery, an eight-speaker stereo, 5.0-inch infotainment screen, 3.5-inch gauge cluster display, heated and power-adjustable side mirrors, alloy wheels, sunscreen glass, leather-trimmed steering wheel, security alarm, automatic on/off headlights, keyless entry and power windows.

The new Willys and Black-and-Tan packages both build on the Sport S model. Willys gets special 17-inch wheels, a limited slip rear differential, rock rails, heavy-duty brakes, 32-inch terrain tires, all-weather mats and LED headlights and fog lights. The Black-and-Tan is largely an appearance package with all-terrain tires, tan cloth seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, 7.0-inch infotainment screen and a 7.0-inch gauge cluster display.

Sahara adds a 115-volt power outlet, heavy-duty shocks, 18-inch wheels, tubular side steps, bright interior accents, smartphone integration, garage door opener and ambient interior lighting. From the Black-and-Tan, the Sahara carries forward automatic climate control and the 7.0-inch display screens.

Finally, Rubicon is a more hardcore off-roader with a disconnecting front stabilizer bar, upgraded axles, two-speed transfer case, rock protection sill rails, 17-inch wheels with off-road tires and upgraded cloth upholstery.

Key Options

Depending on trim, the Wrangler Unlimited comes with either a fabric convertible top or a removable hardtop. Another option is to get both soft and hard tops with your Wrangler Unlimited.

A cold weather group adds heat to the front seats and steering wheel.

A Sport S technology group brings the 7.0-inch infotainment and gauge cluster screens, smartphone integration, satellite radio and dual-zone climate control.

Sahara and Rubicon extras include navigation in an 8.4-inch touchscreen, an advanced safety package with forward collision warning and automatic braking, and a basic safety group adds blind spot monitoring and rear parking sensors.

Fuel Economy

Jeep's fuel consumption estimates for the Wrangler are 10.9/10.0 L/100 km (city/highway) with the 2.0L turbo. V6 ratings are 12.9/10.2 for automatic models and 13.8/10.1 with the six-speed manual.

Competition

There's arguably a bit more competition for the Wrangler Unlimited than the smaller two-door model, because most SUVs and crossovers come in four-door body styles. However, the Wrangler Unlimited is largely in a class by itself thanks to its off-road prowess. Its closest competition comes from pickup trucks with off-road packages, which could include Jeep's own Gladiator, covered in a separate buyer's guide entry.
