2023 Jeep wrangler Overview

What’s new:

  • Not much is likely to change about the gas-powered Wrangler.
  • A 2018 Wrangler that is part of the fourth generation

Even though it can only do a few things, the Jeep Wrangler has become a well-known symbol. Do you wish to go off-road between the Pacific Coast Highway and the Appalachians? The best car is a Jeep Wrangler. In a strange turn of events, its reputation for being able to go off-road has also made it a popular way to get around in the suburbs, where a drive-through lane is probably the most challenging terrain to get through.

The 2023 Wrangler is even more appealing because it can be changed in many ways. You can get it with two or four doors, a four-cylinder, or a powerful V8 engine, among six other options. Oh, and you can still get a model with a manual transmission. To sum up, the Wrangler is one of the few cars that can take you to some of the country’s most remote places right after you buy it. Also, there’s a little something in there for everyone.

On the other hand, Wrangler’s competitors have changed. The Jeep Wrangler and the new Ford Bronco are very similar regarding style, functionality, and customization. The Land Rover Defender is a unique symbol seen in many different places. Even though it costs more than the Wrangler, it works just as well in the city as in the Sahara. If you like the Jeep brand, the Grand Cherokee has solid off-road capabilities, a more comfortable ride, and more safety and security.

What do they like to live with?

We bought a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and took it on many adventures for two years and 50,000 miles. Even though it’s been a while, most of our opinions about the 2023 Wrangler are still valid.


  • Performance off-road that can’t be beaten.
  • A lot of ways to change things
  • Diesel and plug-in hybrid engines are available
  • A roof and doors that can be taken off


  • Especially on the Rubicon trim, the steering feels heavy and clunky.
  • At highway speeds, you can hear the wind and the tires.
  • Less space for luggage than in most SUVs

How do you drive a Wrangler? When it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler shines. This is especially true with the 33-inch tires and locking differentials that come with the Rubicon trim. On the other hand, the typical body-on-frame architecture, solid-axle suspension, and old-school steering make it hard to steer and handle the car daily. Long brake pedal travel is suitable for modulation off-road, but it’s not the best for driving daily on the road.

Our four-door Sahara test Wrangler went from 0 to 60 mph in 7.6 seconds, thanks to its solid and powerful 3.6-liter V6 engine. The eight-speed automatic transmission changes gears smoothly and keeps the bags in the right place.

How comfortable is the Wrangler? Even though the Wrangler doesn’t put passenger comfort first, a few things make it stand out. The design of these chairs makes them ideal for front-seat passengers on extended excursions. The back bench is harder and flatter than the front bench, but it also leans back a bit. They have reasonable climate control, like air vents in the back.

But the Wrangler’s body-on-frame design, which gives it its “ready for anything” attitude, also makes it hard to drive on anything but the smoothest roads. Even though the cabin is quieter than in older Wranglers, the boxy shape and big tires make a lot of noise from the wind and the road. When comparing hardtop and soft top, the latter offers significantly more peace and quiet.

How does the inside look? There are many options, yet the design is intuitive (particularly on the Rubicon with its extensive off-road driving changes). There are fewer blind spots because to the building’s square windows and skinny pillars. Even though the driver’s seat is pretty high, the steering wheel and rear have a lot of ways to adjust them. The old soft top was more challenging to take off than the new one.

Getting into the Wrangler may require the use of the grab grips for most individuals due to the vehicle’s elevated seating position. The space inside is also limited; the Wrangler has less room for your shoulders and legs than other vehicles.

How good is the tech? Regarding entertainment and connecting your phone, the Jeep Wrangler is surprisingly modern. The optional 8.4-inch Uconnect system has one of the best interfaces for information and joy in the business. It also has clear graphics and responds quickly. There are several USB and USB-C ports for charging. The Wrangler’s 7- and 8.4-inch touch screens come with Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto built in as standard.

Regarding new ways to drive, the Wrangler could be better. Some functions, like monitoring for blind spots, are available, but high-tech tools like automatic emergency braking or help staying in your lane are not.

What about putting things away? The Jeep’s narrow body is helpful off-road, but it also makes it harder to carry a lot of stuff. There is enough space for cargo, but competitors offer a little more. Still, the back seats fold nicely into the floor if you need more things. There is also a pocket on the floor and six vital places to tie things down. There are a few small-item pockets in the front, and the door pockets are mostly shallow nets.

Car seats can be put in the Unlimited easily as long as they are not too big. For a rear-facing seat, move the front seat forward. Behind a camper, the Wrangler can pull up to 3,500 pounds flat.

How well does it use gasoline? With 4WD and a V6, the Wrangler Unlimited gets two more miles per gallon on the highway than the Toyota 4Runner, its closest competitor. We had trouble meeting these predictions in the heavy traffic of Los Angeles; over 30,000 miles, our Rubicon got an average of 17.6 mpg. The optional 2.0-liter turbo engine gets 22 mpg on the highway, almost the same as the Ford Edge and Toyota Highlander, both popular crossovers.

Should I invest in a Wrangler? The inside of the Wrangler looks like it was made with a lot of care by Jeep. Many of the switchgear’s parts are easy to use and look different. The materials on the dash and seats are warm and pleasant to touch. The Wrangler is a bit pricey, but the better parts and look make it look like it’s worth it. All Jeeps come with a warranty.

The Jeep Wrangler is different from all other cars. This is one of the last off-road vehicles that doesn’t make any concessions. It is also a well-known convertible. Steering and handling can be forgotten because it’s easy to remember them. You can go just about anywhere with one of these.

Jeep had not told anything official about the 2023 Wrangler when this was written. Based on last year’s Wrangler, we’d recommend the Rubicon trim level for the whole Wrangler experience. We’d add a hardtop for a quieter ride, better insulation, and the LED Lighting and Safety groups for better headlights, blind-spot monitoring, and parking sensors.

Jeep Wrangler models include

Jeep Wranglers are two-door sport utility vehicles. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has four doors. Sport and Rubicon are the two primary trim levels for the Wrangler with two doors. The Sport is also the basis for the Willys Sport, Sport S, Willys, and Altitude. The four-door Wrangler Unlimited also comes in the Sahara, the 4xe plug-in hybrid (only in Sahara or Rubicon trim), and the Rubicon 392. Most versions of the Wrangler come with a part-time four-wheel-drive system with low-range gearing as standard equipment. All-wheel drive is not a requirement.
