The popularity of the 2017 Wrangler is proven by the 18,000 units sold annually in Canada for the past five years. This tough trail boss tackles any terrain with pride and confidence. The 2017 Jeep Wrangler midsize SUV for off-road and urban driving is a solid built sturdy vehicle retaining its market position. For the seventh consecutive year, the Jeep Wrangler has received the “Best Retained Value” award. The current generation of the Wrangler was introduced in 2007, with the shape remaining the same and only some interior upgrades made for the 2011 trim and to the powertrain in 2012. The minor updates added to the Wrangler for 2017 are LED headlights and Fog lamps. The 2018 models, however, are set for a revamp.

The two styles of the Jeep Wrangler

There are two body styles for the Wrangler, a basic two-door model, and the four-door Wrangler Unlimited. The square fenders, rectilinear sheet-metal, exposed hinges, and utilitarian interior appointments continue into the age of luxury and connectivity. Both Wranglers are equipped with a 3.6 Litre V6 engine making 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, which is dispatched to the wheels by either a six-speed manual that is standard or by a five –speed automatic transmission.

The powertrain choices include various four-wheel-drive systems ranging from capable to a highly developed. There is also a variety of Jeep and Mopar accessories available for enhancing the all-terrain capabilities and the appearance of the Jeep Wrangler.

The 2017 Jeep Wrangler is capable of going anywhere

Through its fundamental construction origins for World War II, the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is renowned for its capabilities both on and off the road. The Wrangler build of firm body-on-frame is the ideal vehicle for resisting off-road punishment. It is constructed, with rigid front and rear axles with locking differentials, hill-descent control, and ability to electronically disconnect the front anti-roll bar. Ample ground clearance, short wheelbases, as well as approach and departure angles designed for serious rock-crawling, ensure the Jeep Wrangler the terrain champion. It can go where lesser SUV’s just couldn’t.

The Urban performance 

However, compared to other crossovers, it is less pleasant for everyday city driving due to the interior noisiness, excessive body motions, and lengthy braking distances. The high-speed stability also lacks, increasing the risk of rollover accidents. These traits make the drive a little extreme for daily motoring. However, when you need a capable vehicle for driving over rocks and muddy surfaces, the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is certainly your answer.
