The 1995 Jeep Wrangler is almost the quintessential off-road vehicle. It proves rugged, powerful, and maneuverable in difficult terrain. The short length allows it to get through areas that might give some larger vehicles pause, as well. Drivers looking for a vehicle that can get through difficult terrain find a lot to love in this compact sport utility vehicle.
The only downside of the Wrangler concerns its weak roadway performance. The fuel economy remains low, which makes the Wrangler expensive to operate for day-to-day commuting. The acceleration and maneuverability seem adequate, but not on the same level as many other vehicles. While not the ideal choice for suburban drivers, the Wrangler makes a great choice for anyone expecting to do any substantial amount of off-road driving. While not great compared to many other vehicles, the roadway performance from the Wrangler equals or surpasses the on-road abilities of most offroad-oriented competitors.
