2012 Jeep Wrangler ReviewMay 30th, 2012
The 2012 Jeep Wrangler has been around for many years. It is known as the iconic Jeep vehicle, the rugged, beastly machine that can get you anywhere. This old dog has learned some new tricks to keep up with the modern age. Changes that have been made for 2012 are: a new V6 engine, a five-speed automatic is also now available and every Jeep Wrangler is now four-wheel drive.
The interior of this off-road utility vehicle is simple. The 2012 Jeep Wrangler stays true to its roots in nature and the outdoors: crank windows, basic materials and no carpet. This ensures your Jeep can be easily hosed off after a hard day of play. There are a few modern creature comforts to ensure people who want a few luxuries aren’t disappointed: climate control, a decent stereo system, a high tech centre console and with the higher trim models you get more room in the back seat for storage or other passengers.
The exterior of the 2012 Jeep Wrangler portrays a vehicle that is up for any adventure. The impressive front grille, signature headlamps, high ground clearance, massive rims and square design keep a classic looking great. Of course there is the ever popular soft top option for those summer days when you want to be one with nature a little more than usual.
The safety features put into the 2012 Jeep Wrangler are excellent. You will find advanced multistage front airbags, energy-absorbing front rail extensions, electronic stability control, mid-mounted fuel tank and hill start assist.
