2023 Jeep Wrangler Review: Specs and Pricing

Updated: Mar 2


Jeep Wrangler

OVERVIEW


Since then, the Wrangler has taken on civilian shape and now has a couple of tires in the luxury market in terms of both price and features. The Jeep Wrangler has always had a patriotic story, borrowing inspiration from the military Willys Jeeps that helped the Allies win World War II.


The Wrangler has wide popularity due in part to its two body types and an assortment of fuel-guzzling powertrains. There is also a plug-in hybrid model available, but nothing is more unmistakably American than the Rubicon 392 model, which has the highest V-8āāāā engine output of 470 horsepower.


All Wranglers have four-wheel drive and a variety of off-road features, and the majority of variants can take you almost any place you want to go provided you have the necessary driving skills.


The Wrangler exhibits its shortcomings on the road. It isn't the most practical as an errand runner because of its jarring ride on bumpy roads and poor steering on the freeway. Whatever the case, the Jeep has a devoted following that would never contemplate a Ford Bronco or a Toyota 4Runner.


What Has Changed For 2023?


For a brief period, a new Freedom Edition Wrangler model is added to the inventory. It has a steel front bumper, rock rails on the sides, and an exterior design with military overtones. The Rubicon receives new 17-inch wheel designs from other models in the lineup. The titles of two brand-new paint colors, Earl and Reign, don't offer you any idea of their actual colors.


2023 Jeep Wrangler: Engine And Performance


Under the hood of the new JL is the standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine with 285 horsepower from the previous-generation Wrangler, which can be mated to either a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission. An electric motor works in tandem with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine as an optional low-end power boost. 


The Wrangler may be fitted with a 3.6-liter V-6 with a comparable hybrid aid, a 3.0-liter diesel V-6, a 375-hp plug-in hybrid 4xe engine, and a 6.4-liter V-8 in addition to the basic V-6 and optional four-cylinder hybrid. Because Wranglers are built for off-road use, part-time four-wheel drive is standard on all models and is managed via a lever on the center console.


In our tests, a standard two-door Wrangler Sport with the V-6 and the six-speed manual transmission reached 60 mph in 6.1 seconds, while a well-equipped four-door Sahara model with the automatic transmission accomplished the feat in 6.8 seconds.


The four-door Sahara was a little quicker to reach 60 mph with the four-cylinder hybrid powerplant, doing it in 6.5 seconds. In our testing, the High Tide and Rubicon models, both of which have heavier-duty off-roading equipment as added weight, lagged behind the others.


The Wrangler JL performs far better than the previous generation at our test track, but in several other areas, it is only maintaining parity with its competitors. Although its handling has improved, it still feels like a truck when compared to the sophisticated SUVs and trucks of today. The four-ride door's quality on bumpy roads is tolerably smooth, although our two test cars' braking distances varied widely.



2023 Jeep Wrangler: Battery Life, Charging, And Range


The 4xe powertrain is the clear choice if the thought of traversing trails only on electricity appeals to you. Jeep claims that the 17.0 kWh battery pack is sufficient for a few hours of low-speed off-roading, despite claims that it can travel up to 25 miles on electricity alone. You needn't worry about getting stranded without a charge because the turbocharged four-cylinder can drive all four wheels like a regular Wrangler when the battery runs out.


2023 Jeep Wrangler: Interior And Comfort


The Wrangler offers a seamless fusion of traditional and contemporary Jeep character, while not being the roomiest or most accommodating SUV on the market. Easy maneuverability is made possible by a commanding perspective of the road or path, but the vision backward is obstructed by the vehicle's thick roof pillars, roll bars, and different grasp handles.


Do you require a better vantage point? Simply lift the top, then take the doors off. The driver and front-seat passenger are positioned near to the upright windshield and look at a squared-off, thin dashboard with round air vents and large switchgear for the entertainment system, power windows, and climate control.


The Wrangler is a good option for doing errands because it has enough space for supplies and groceries, but be careful that its back seats don't fold flat to the floor. As you might anticipate, choosing the smaller, two-door Wrangler over the bigger, four-door Unlimited model has a major impact on cargo capacity. Packing light is important if you're going on an adventure with friends because just two of our carry-on cases fit behind the back seat of the two-door car, compared to ten for the four-door.


Connectivity


You can choose to equip a Wrangler with merely the necessities or with the latest in modern electronics. Its three-size touchscreen infotainment interface, known as Uconnect, is user-friendly, responsive, and simple to operate. Navigation and an Alpine nine-speaker audio system are optional, as are Apple Car Play and Android Auto.


2023 Jeep Wrangler: Pricing


The starting price of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler is $34,165 for the four-door variant and $30,295 for the two-door model, which is a bit pricey for a compact SUV. The entry-level Sahara trim has a starting price of $44,320, while the Rubicon 392 model's top-of-the-line MSRP is a hefty $79,995.


Which One To Purchase?


We'd start with the two-door Wrangler—which includes a detachable cloth top as standard—because we like the concept of staying true to the Wrangler's straightforward beginnings while keeping the pricing toward the low end of the spectrum. We don't want to go full World War II bare bones, so the Wrangler Sport S would be our choice because of its additional features, which include air conditioning, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power windows and locks, automated headlights, heated mirrors, and more.


In addition, we would specify the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 270 horsepower because it has 295 pound-feet of torque, which is 35 pound-feet more than the normal V-6.
