Review

The iconic Jeep Wrangler is a car you buy with your heart rather than your head, unless you have a rugged future mapped out for it. It looks great and has enough standard equipment to match some more premium large SUVs, and its off-road prowess can’t be denied, either. However, on the road, it lags a long way behind rivals in just about every area.

get the best price

As well as chunkier tyres, Rubicon adds locking front and rear differentials to give even more traction on slippery surfaces, as well as detachable anti-roll bars that allow even more suspension travel.

The 2.2-litre diesel has a reasonable amount of punch, getting the Wrangler up to motorway speeds without too much fuss, although the much lighter two-door version unsurprisingly feels a lot sprightlier than the four-door model. It's a lot quieter than the previous 2.8-litre diesel, although it still sounds gravelly even while cruising and transmits more than a few vibrations through the controls.
