What is the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited? This is a question that the people at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ladue frequently are asked. This is because there is sometimes some confusion about the differences between the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Today we want to describe the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited so that it is a little bit easier to spot the differences.
A big reason that this confusion happens is because the Unlimited is technically a trim of the Jeep Wrangler.
Wrangler uses a smooth and fancy Chrysler Pentastar 3.6-liter V6, and a 5-speed automatic transmission designed by Mercedes-Benz with an available 6-speed manual.The engine makes 285 horsepower with 260 pound-feet of torque, scooting a two-door to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds, with the heavier four-door Wrangler Unlimited trailing behind, in 8.4 seconds. Wrangler features a rugged chassis with high ground clearance and skid plates, and solid axles front and rear.It is an amazing machine when it comes to scrambling over boulders. (New tricks by the Rubicon model, in pursuit of bigger boulders, include electronic disconnection of the sway bar to allow extreme wheel articulation and stability in extreme situations, but the Rubicon is another trim different from the Unlimited.)
“The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is a four-door that comes with a hard top, soft top, or both. The Freedom hardtop is like a T-top, with easily removable roof panels. The soft top is easier to get down than it used to be, but the T-top is the easiest to manage.”-autoblog.com
