The Wrangler and its 4-door sibling, the Wrangler Unlimited, come in four trim levels for 2015, all with a 3.6L V6 engine. The engine makes 285 hp at 5,200 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque. All Wrangler models have a 6-speed manual transmission as standard equipment, while a 5-speed automatic is optional.
All Wrangler models also come with electronic stability control, a full-size spare tire and shift-on-the-fly 4-wheel drive; the Sahara and Rubicon models add traction control. All models also share Dana solid front axles and heavy-duty rear axles, ensuring that the Wrangler will keep moving over obstacles that would stop other off-roaders.
Every 2016 Wrangler's interior features cloth-wrapped bucket seats with driver height-adjustment, a tilt-adjustable steering wheel, temperature and compass gauge, cruise control and an anti-theft engine immobilizer.
The Sahara trim receives heated power mirrors, power windows and remote keyless entry. The suspension is a heavy-duty type and the wheels are 18-inch aluminum. A standard 3-piece hard top is also included that comes with a rear wiper, defroster and tinted windows.
The Sahara Wrangler gets performance suspension, 18-inch aluminum wheels, fender flares, a leather steering wheel, side steps, satellite radio with a one year subscription and remote keyless entry.
The Rubicon is the Wrangler's factory-built hard-core off-roader. Mechanically, the Rubicon is fitted with Tru-Lok front and rear axles, Dana heavy-duty axles, an electronic sway bar disconnect and 4:1 Rock-Trac 4-wheel drive system. Inside and out, the Rubicon is fairly subdued, and the interior is intended to be more functional than luxurious, with cloth seat trim and a basic AM/FM/CD stereo.
The options list however, is broad enough to configure Wranglers any way the buyer wants, ranging from a 30GB media center stereo that includes a 6.5-inch touch screen, navigation and a USB port, Katzkin 2-tone leather seats, remote start and a trailering upgrade package.

A new Black Bear special edition heads up the changes to the Jeep Wrangler in 2016. The Black Bear Special Edition includes a satin black grill, unique exterior decals, rock sliders and black 17-inch wheels. Inside, the Black Bear gets a leather wrapped steering wheel with contrasting stitching, all-weather mats and some additional interior trim pieces. The Sahara edition also gets minor updates with new wheels and a body colored bumper applique.
With prices starting at a little under $23,000 with standard 4-wheel drive, the classic Wrangler is one of the best SUV values available.
