Hi Guys, I`m mike and this is my used car review for the 2007 to 2010 Jeep Wrangler. A model of the SUV that was updated for the first time in a decade in 2007.
Meet the Jeep Wrangler
The Jeep Wrangler is truly a one-of-a-kind SUV. It’s the cornerstone of a brand whose reputation lies in off-road capability. With a seemingly bulletproof drive train and iconic look, it’s easy to see why there are so many Wranglers on the road today.
That redesign yielded a slightly wider and heavier Wrangler giving it a more comfortable ride. The redesign also meant that the roomier 4-door Wrangler Unlimited was added to the lineup.
Jeep Wrangler Options
Versions available are the base, the upscale model, and the Rubicon, a formidable weapon of choice. The Wrangler is still the king of the mountain. Even against capable competition like the Toyota FJ Cruiser and Nissan S10. If off roading is important to you, the Jeep Wrangler will not disappoint you.
The base Wrangler features a six speaker stereo CD player, removable half doors, and 16 inch steel wheels. Available features vary by trim and include power windows and locks, A/C, navigation system, Infinity premium stereo, and Bluetooth hands-free calling.
It does have a lot of really convenient features, but the Wrangler was really built for off-roading. I would have no problem taking this SUV off-road.
The Wrangler’s 3.8 Liter V6 and rugged suspension set up were really built for off-road adventures. Don’t expect the smoothest ride on the road.
Take it off-road, go through the snow, and the Wrangler’s right at home. The Wrangler’s 200 horsepower are available at a very low RPM. With the shift on the fly 4-wheel drive unit in low, we can tackle anything from rock crawling to snow fighting.
A 4-speed automatic is also available, and it gets the same 15 miles per gallon in the city and 19 miles per gallon on the highway as the standard, but if going off road isn’t really your thing you should be able to find a 4-door Wrangler Unlimited with rear wheel drive only. That gets a little better with 15 miles per gallon in the city and 20 on the highway.
If you do hit the trail occasionally or live in a hilly neighborhood, you’ll want to look at a 2009 or later model. Hill start assist was offered as standard equipment starting in ’09.
Things to Note about the 2007 to 2010 Jeep Wrangler:
The Wrangler has had a few notable recalls that are worth mentioning. A potential brake hose leak for all 2007 to 2010s, and an ’09 airbag defect that can cause the driver’s side airbag to deploy improperly. Remember if you’re looking at a particular Wrangler to have a Jeep dealer check out those items.
By and large, drivers love their Wranglers. They’re incredibly durable and capable, and the combination of removable top and 4-wheel drive makes for a one of a kind driving experience. In just about any weather, the result is an SUV with a large loyal following.
Don’t be surprised if another Wrangler driver waves to you. Just remember, wave back!
