2017 Jeep Wrangler vs 2016 Jeep Wrangler

Serving Spartanburg, Greenville, and Boiling Springs, SC

The Jeep Wrangler has been serving adventure-seekers year after year for several decades, and every year this stalwart off-roader gets a little better. The 2017 edition picks up where the 2016 edition left off. This means it inherits top marks in many categories including performance, durability, value, and, of course, off-roading.

Performance

The 2016 Wrangler claimed best-in-class performance from its tough V6 engine. For 2017, Jeep continues the progress with its 285-horsepower engine. This unit kicks out 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Even better, it can harness that torque at lower revs, allowing it to do more at lower speeds. For off-roading, this is a must-have capability, and the Wrangler does it right. When Edmunds drove the new Wrangler, test drivers noted that the Jeep is faster, doing the sprint in a quick 6.9 seconds. Offering a manual transmission is another way the Wrangler stands out in its class. It also has a convenient and effective six-speed automatic for those who prefer the more modern touch.

Like the 2016, the 2017 offers two types of four-wheel drive. The first is best-in-class for snow. The second is best-in-class for off-roading. Either way, you can take to the trail with confidence. Wranglers have been called the Off-roader of the Decade, and the 2017 edition works hard to continue this tradition.

Appearance

The 2017 Wrangler wears Jeep's famous seven-slot grille just as the 2016 did. Jeep has done little to change the iconic good looks of the SUV's athletic build. Sitting tall above the crowd, the Wrangler boasts 10.1 inches of ground clearance. Jeep mounts the bumpers and wheel wells higher to accommodate the brush while off-roading. Skid plates prevent damage to the engine and other vital parts. Water-proofing makes it possible for this SUV to handle up to 18 inches of water.

A new interior welcomes passengers to the 2017 model. Every year quality is emphasized, and Jeep moves the Wrangler further away from its utilitarian roots. Drivers will appreciate the available 6.5-inch touchscreen with streaming audio via your smartphone and Bluetooth. The 2017 Cold Weather package is a new addition. It adds a remote starter and heated seats. The all-weather floor mats add to its easy-clean nature. Of course, the floors already boast drain plugs to allow owners to wash out the mud.

Safety

The Wrangler's height and its tough build help it escape the worst impact in certain scenarios. Airbags take up the next line of defense, protecting passengers in an accident. A roll bar is added for open air driving. Of course, every Jeep comes with foglights as part of its safety package. New for 2017, Jeep makes LED lighting available for both headlights and foglights. Helping the driver avoid trouble, traction controls regulate brake distribution. This reduces the chances of sliding while stopping or driving. Terrain management adds extra help for sand, mud and snow. Electronic sensors also work to maintain balance, keeping the SUV stable despite uneven surfaces or fast curves.
