2013 Jeep Wrangler Review
Reviewed by Automotive on
Vehicle OverviewThe 2013 Jeep Wrangler off-road SUV retains its rough-and-tumble edge, even when the majority of the class has become more city-friendly and refined in ride quality. The Jeep Wrangler can handle any off-road challenge thrown its way. Powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission, the Wrangler produces 285 horsepower and offers an EPA-estimated 17/21 mpg city/highway. Jeep currently offers the Wrangler in six models the Sport, Sahara, Rubicon, Unlimited Sport, Unlimited Sahara, and Unlimited Rubicon.
As a vehicle that puts function above comfort, customers may find the Wrangler more civilized and refined than expected. The cabin is easily cleaned after a long day of off-roading, offers new comfortable seating, and with a two- and four-door option, there is a Jeep Wrangler to appeal to any customer interested in the off-road staple. Leg and foot room are limited in the two-door model, but the four-door offers extra passenger room, easier access to the back row, as well at 86 cubic feet of cargo space when the second row seats are folded.
Standard features for the 2013 Jeep Wrangler include 16-inch steel wheels, front and rear tow hooks, foglamps, manual mirrors, locks, and windows, a tilt-only steering wheel, removable soft top, steering wheel controls, and a height-adjustable driver seat. The Unlimited Sport model adds a larger gas tank, four doors, air conditioning, and a 60/40-split folding rear seat. The Sahara comes standard with the above features, as well as an upgraded suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, under-hood insulation, side steps, and a six-speaker Alpine sound system. The Rubicon adds 17-inch wheels, 32-inch tires, heavy-duty axles and transfer case, electronic front and rear locking differentials, front sway bar, rock rails, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and satellite radio.
New for 2013The 2013 Jeep Wrangler offers more comfortable seats, an updated tire pressure monitoring system, and an Alpine sound system. Unlimited models now feature an easier-to-use soft top and available premium soft top. Moab Edition packages offers unique exterior and interior styling, as well as an array of standard features. The 10th Anniversary Rubicon limited edition gets upgraded off-road features and "Anniversary Red" interior.
