"the Jeep Wrangler is now easier to live with, nicer to drive on the road and better made. But don’t go thinking the Wrangler has gone all soft. It can still arguably call itself the king of 4x4s, it brims with character and it’s the most overtly American of all the Jeeps you can buy. The best bit is that you can now buy a Wrangler without feeling as though you’re sacrificing modern day convenience for the ultimate off-roading weapon"
"still a gold star performer"
"Off road, it feels almost unstoppable, and the running gear is reassuringly mechanical, rather than electronic"
"Astonishingly good off road...Four-door model is spacious...Sharp and responsive infotainment system"
