2012 Jeep Wrangler Video Review

by Admin on March 22, 2012

The classics keep getting better: 2012 Jeep Wrangler.

The 2012 Jeep Wrangler keeps the unique ability and appearance that the Wrangler has been known as. Its off-road capability is something to boast about. It has old-school solid axles at both ends and standard crank windows. Wrangler keeps it simple and performance driven. Why do you needs all the bells and whistle of a luxurious interior when all you want to do it get dirty and be one with nature?

The major changes that have been made to the new 2012 Jeep Wrangler are from within: a V6 engine, a five-speed automatic is also available and every Wrangler is now four-wheel drive.

The Wrangler has made some changes to upgrade the interior to be a little more rider friendly such as climate control, a good stereo system, a high tech centre console and of course with the higher trim models you get more room in the back seats. The Wrangler has stayed fairly true its roots though. Crank windows, basic materials and no carpet allow you to easily hose off you Wrangler after a day out in the dirt, dust and mud. If you have a soft top, the glovebox and center console can be locked for secure storage. The seats and dashboard have been given a rounded-updated look that is more earthy.

The exterior is Jeep through and through. The classic front grille, headlamps, high ground clearance, massive rims and square design keep a classic looking great. There is also the option of a soft top for those summer days when all you want to do it be in the sun and feel the wind in your hair.

With the new V6 Pentastar the 2012 Jeep Wrangler cranks an impressive 83 more horses than the outgoing engine, the new V6 is more than a second quicker from zero to 60 mph.

  • 3.6L V6 Pentastar: 285 horsepower and 260lb-feet of torque, four-wheel drive is standard and includes high and low range transfer case gears.

The Fuel Economy of the 2012 Jeep Wrangler is only with the pack and not above:

Fuel Economy-L/100km (MPG) City Highway
3.6L V6 with 6-speed manual (2-door) 12.7 (22) 9.3 (30)
3.6L V6 with 5-speed auto (2-door) 12.6 (22) 9.2 (30)
3.6L V6 with 6-speed manual (4-door) 13.4 (21) 9.6 (29)
3.6L V6 with 5-speed auto (4-door) 13.2 (21) 10.0 (28)

There are a lot of available trim levels with the 2012 Jeep Wrangler: Sport, Unlimited Sport, Sahara, Unlimited Sport RHD, Rubicon, Unlimited Sahara and Unlimited Rubicon.

The Wrangler has never really been praised as a great on-road driver. With all its off-road ability, the streets aren’t really its strong point. You will find city driving rough and noisy.
