While the title feels like a confusing statement, the fact is that you can enjoy the drive in the Jeep Wrangler and know that you won’t deal with the lag that happens in a turbocharged model.
The Jeep Wrangler has always felt like a vehicle that shouldn’t be allowed on public roads, but it’s been one of the most-loved and admired vehicles in the market for more than three-quarters of a century. Today, you can enjoy the on and off-road competence of the Wrangler and take it for a drive wherever you want to go.
Avoiding the Turbo Lag in this Jeep
We love the turbocharged engines that are on the market today, but we don’t like the time it takes for these engines to spool up and add extra power. Jeep has solved this problem in the models with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine by adding a 22-horsepower electric motor that acts as the starter for the stop-start system while adding up to 71 lb.-ft. of torque during that time the turbocharger is spooling up. The result is a Wrangler that takes off from a start without any hesitation at all.
Quick for a Big SUV
The Jeep Wrangler isn’t a vehicle that you look at and immediately think “quick” as a descriptor. Even though this brute weighs in at 4,469 pounds, it can reach sixty mph in 6.8 seconds with the Pentastar V6 engine under the hood and hit this mark in 6.5 seconds with the four-cylinder engine. Does the Wrangler need to be this quick? It does if you want to have an easy and enjoyable time when you take off form a stop to head out for a great drive. There’s no reason not to have the speed you want in this SUV, and it brings you the quickness you’re looking for.
Build the Jeep Wrangler the Way You Want
You can have a variety of trims in the Jeep Wrangler you want to drive. With a choice of engines and the features you want to experience when you drive, you’ll be ready to get behind the wheel and take this brute to wherever you want to go. Choose the Sahara model in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and admire the four-door layout and the upgraded off-road personality that will take you where you need to go to be able to enjoy the wilderness.
Changing the Way You Drive this Jeep
The biggest challenge in older models of the Wrangler was the fact that you wouldn’t be comfortable on the road. That’s been changed with some added suspension tuning and softer shocks that allow the Wrangler to feel great on the road. Just because Jeep softened the ride on the road doesn’t mean you give up anything on the trails. The Wrangler continues to be one of the most impressive off-road SUVs for you to have the drive you’re looking for so that you can have a lot of fun wherever you go.
The Interior is Amazing
Another change from Jeep Wrangler models of the past can be found in the interior elements you’ll be able to enjoy. This area is still rugged, but you can have leather seats, the impressive array of FCA electronics with the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, the USB ports to help charge items, and a variety of additional power features to help you have the drive that’s right. If you choose solid doors, you can have power mirrors and power windows to make you feel the Wrangler is less of an open-air model and more of one that’s competent for your daily drive.
