What Car? says...

What do carrots, a good chunk of the population and the SUV class have in common? Stuck? Well, the answer is that they all get softer as they get older. Take the SUV class; what used to be a selection of rugged off-roaders has become, for the most part, an assortment of hatchbacks on tiptoes.

That might be dandy for those who spend 99% of their time on the road, but many people still need something that can haul itself up a mountain without breaking into a sweat. If you’re one of those, the Jeep Wrangler might be right up your farm track.

Like the Toyota Land CruiserMitsubishi Shogun and the far more expensive Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the Wrangler is designed to be at least as comfortable off the road as it is on it. That means you get an old-school ladder frame chassis with the body bolted on top, as well as ‘live’ axles front and rear.

But can the Wrangler live up to modern expectations of ride and handling? We’ll investigate this, along with what it’s like inside and what it’ll cost to run, over the next few pages.

And if you’re already sold on the Wrangler’s rugged looks, do visit our New Car Buying site to find some tempting savings.
