Traces its DNA to the WWII model Willys MB, also known as Jeep. This makes the Wrangler the direct descendent of the first real SUV ever.

Styling and street presence

Design is clearly from the original Jeep, with modern additions and adaptations. The harmonious fusion of old and new gives it a lot of character. The street presence is enormous and only matched by the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Like the G63, it has round H4 headlights from the 70s with halogen bulbs.

Seating and visibility

You have to climb in and the upright windscreen offers a good view that is only partially obstructed by the A-pillars. Old style wipers clean a fair area.

All-terrain capability

One of the most capable off-roaders in the world. It has 4WD with low ratio and the heavy duty axles and suspension give it go anywhere capability.

Practicality

Strong skid plates for transfer case and fuel tank, but limited space, especially in the two door version.

Touring ability and performance

On road performance is fairly decent.

Stage timing

3m 53.54s

Four-wheel drive works well and braking is confident too. But not meant for fast stage times.
