The automotive press has always drooled over the Jeep Wrangler’s rock climbing and trail crawling abilities, calling it the most capable, affordable off-road SUV on the market. But with a new V6 engine, reviewers have fallen madly in love with the Jeep Wrangler all over again. It’s the most powerful, refined Wrangler yet, which earns it our Best Off-Road SUV for the Money award.

Jeep has improved overall refinement in the Wrangler by leaps and bounds over the past several years, and the interior and noise-reduction improvements introduced last year, combined with the new engine and transmission this year, amount to a substantial refresh. Last year, the Wrangler tossed the parts bin look and got an all new instrument panel design more curvy and sophisticated, but still upright along with new interior materials that have more soft-touch surfaces for elbows and such.

The Wrangler is offered in two different body styles (Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited) and three different trims (Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon). Wrangler Unlimited models add 20.6 inches of wheelbase (116 inches), giving them the most cargo space ever in a Wrangler, and a larger rear seat design. While that extra backseat space in the Unlimited will be much appreciated, don’t expect a lot of comfort anywhere in the Wrangler. Also, no matter which model, the front seats tend to be a bit flat and unsupportive.

Jeep Wrangler 2012 Interior :
Jeep Wrangler 2012 Interior. – Reviewers say the 2012 Jeep Wrangler’s interior is a nicer place to be now that it has less hard plastic and more interior features. Still, some reviewers are hoping for more thoughtful updates. For example, the removable doors have power door locks, but reviewers wish they also had power window controls. The Wrangler comes with a basic six speaker AM/FM/CD stereo with an auxiliary input jack and a tilt steering column with speed and audio controls. Air conditioning is optional. The Sahara trim adds air conditioning, power door locks and windows and satellite radio. The Rubicon trim takes away some of the features available on the Sahara, such as power doors and windows, but keeps satellite radio, and power windows are optional. A USB connection is also available.

The 2012 Jeep Wrangler is a convertible SUV available in two-door Wrangler and four door Wrangler Unlimited versions. Each comes in Sport, Sahara and Rubicon trims. The Sport comes sparsely equipped with 16-inch steel wheels, front and rear tow hooks, foglamps, a removable soft top, crank windows, manual locks and mirrors, cruise control, a tilt-only steering wheel, a height-adjustable driver seat, and a six-speaker sound system with an auxiliary audio jack, CD player and steering wheel controls. The Unlimited gets a bigger gas tank, four doors, more backseat and trunk space, air conditioning and a 60/40 split folding rear seat. The Power Convenience Group adds heated power mirrors, power locks and windows, and keyless entry. Air conditioning (two-door), satellite radio, a leather wrapped steering wheel and 17 inch alloy wheels are also optional.

Jeep Wrangler 2012 Exterior :
Jeep Wrangler 2012 Exterior. – The Wrangler is still offered in two door Wrangler and four door Wrangler Unlimited variants. Last year, Sahara trims get a new body colored hardtop, and for this year the new top scheme has been extended to the Rubicon. Brighter colors and an expanded color palette round out the exterior news.

Strapped into a new Rubicon edition Wrangler (no coincidence, that), we chuckle, sometimes fret, as the Jeep’s 32-inch knobbies scavenge for grip in bedrock and up crag faces that turn our view into a disorienting sea of ?blue and white. The trail is as eager as ever to fold tailpipes and bumpers, and its cambered rock valleys are tight enough to put a hold on normal respiration. The Rubicon Trail is a mean maid. But, fittingly, even a bone stock Wrangler Rubicon can tame it. So, point taken: Nothing Jeep has done to the 2012 model has made a sissy of the Wrangler.

Climb inside, and you might notice that the Wrangler has changed quite significantly over the past couple of model years. Jeep last year did away with the drab interior, which was retro in all the wrong ways (read hard plastic and ’90s era Chrysler switchgear), and brought it up to modern tastes. The instrument panels and door panels are newly contoured, trims were freshened and given a bezeled or machined look, and the look and feel is way more sophisticated while keeping the brief, upright, and businesslike look of the dash. You’ll also appreciate the use of soft-touch surfaces in areas such as elbow rests.

Jeep Wrangler 2012 Engine :
Jeep Wrangler 2012 Engine. – This ’12 Wrangler is actually the culmination of a two-part refresh that began with the 2011 model. Last year, the cabin was rid of plastics as unyielding as the boulders we’re crawling over. It might not have reached a Bentley level of poshness, but the interior now favors dash wipes over garden hoses. Along with new heated mirrors and seats and added sound deadening, the Wrangler’s polish continues outside when optioned with the body colored hardtop. In sum, it is a convincing enticement to customers holding reservations about living day to day with a Wrangler. But even as the ’11 Jeep gained amenities, it remained handicapped by its dismal powertrain, which included a four speed slushbox and a wheezy 202-hp, 3.8-liter V-6. The 2012 Wrangler rectifies this via Chrysler’s new but already ubiquitous Pentastar V-6.

The Jeep Wrangler’s new Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 is more powerful and more fuel-efficient than the 3.8-liter V6 engine it replaces. Reviewers are grateful for this upgrade because regardless of the transmission you choose, it makes the Wrangler a lot more capable of tackling rough terrain than the 2011 model, and even sounds more refined and powerful. The Pentastar engine makes 285 horsepower, which is 83 more horsepower than the old 3.8-liter engine made. Reviewers say the power increase makes a significant difference in city and highway driving because passing is a lot easier.
