Jeep Wrangler

Designed for the deserts of California and with a heritage that dates back to military vehicles, the Jeep Wrangler is a little out of place in an urban environment. Perhaps the ultimate off-road vehicle, it makes no compromises for road use but then nobody buys a Wrangler for its practicalities. Competitive price and excellent fuel economy in the diesel option now put it in a position to challenge the Land Rover Defender as the best 4×4 workhorse. Due to its simple construction and long life the Wrangler can even make claims as an eco vehicle.

Jeep Wrangler 3.6

The Jeep Wrangler's Pentastar 3.6-litre engine was a vast improvement over the ageing 3.8 V6. Not only is it more efficient but it produces nearly 100 more horsepower in standard form. While it is the only engine option for North American customers the V6 Wrangler was phased out from the European market in 2009 where a more economical diesel option is preferred.
