Inasmuch as the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is unabashedly an all-American SUV thanks to its character, uniqueness, and features, it still offers significant reasons to think twice about owning it. Other highpoints include a fun-to-drive character, unmistakable styling, extensive factory and aftermarket support, and lots of variations. The Jeep Wrangler release date should be expected sometime in the second half of 2017, at least as per recent industry and media reports.
It’s Bad, But It’s Good?
While its long list of cons – mediocre crash test scores, noisy interior, sloppy on-road handling, long braking distances, cumbersome convertible operation, missing advanced safety technologies, busy ride quality, and noisy interior – which seem as if we’re reading about something designed 28 years ago behind the Iron Curtain, it nevertheless manages to offer remarkable performance.
In fact, it is a vehicle akin to no other in terms of proven American flair and genetics. Folks, the vehicle in question is a true American icon that represents liberation, freedom and fun just like the country it enthusiastically represents. Heck, the word “Freedom” is even plastered on the roof designs and on the special-edition package.
Styling In Short
Its styling is simply awesome. Its exterior and interior designs are contemporary and are now re-tweaked relative to the existing model it is replacing. It is fun to drive whilst on the move thanks to its old-school mechanical underpinnings.
Handful Of Alternatives?
Another salient strength the Wrangler enjoys is lack of a direct competition. Nonetheless, both the Toyota FJ and Nissan Xterra, both of which are no longer offered for sale, tried to present some good rivalry, but as you’ve correctly guessed, they did exactly manage to make it through. Livable options you can consider include the 2017 Toyota 4Runner, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
