The features and capabilities that make this model an all-time favorite for outdoor enthusiasts everywhere
For years, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has proven to be the model of choice for those in search of a vehicle that can keep up with their sense of adventure.
Here at Platte City-Airport Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Kansas City’s top new and used car dealer, we love our Jeeps! Below our car experts review a few of the notable features that make the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited a popular option for anyone who loves the outdoors.
Room for Everyone
Unlike the Wrangler, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited features four doors instead of two to account for hauling more passengers. This makes the Unlimited a great option for families who want a more rugged SUV option.
Cargo space is ample in the 2016 Unlimited as well. Rear seats can fold flat, and the model also features large consoles and storage bins.
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited’s off-road capabilities are a major part of its iconic design. The model has numerous options for off-road travel, including some of the most distinguished 4×4 systems available. The Command-Trac and Rock-Trac 4×4 systems are both options for the Unlimited and, combined with a Pentastar V-6 engine, create some serious power off-road.
Additional design features for driving off the beaten path include steel wheels and all-terrain tires, which are standard for the Wrangler Unlimited.
Depending on your choice in model, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited comes with numerous options for rugged customization. This includes a fold-down windshield, removable doors and the option for soft tops and plastic windows for enjoying pleasant weather. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited offers the option of choosing an SUV or convertible top.
The Unlimited provides Jeep lovers with the option of multistage front airbags and side airbags that come with sensor detection.
There are also several off-road safety features available, including:
- Hill Start Assist—This feature prevents the vehicle from rolling away while pulling out on a steep up or down gradient.
- Hill Descent Control—Hill Descent Control allows for smooth descents on rough terrain without having to kill your brakes. The HDC controls use the anti-lock brakes system to independently control each wheel for a safe descent.
- Tire Pressure Monitoring—This feature lets drivers know when a tire becomes deflated and could be dangerous on the road.
Powerful Engine and Torque
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a 3.6 liter Pentastar V-6 engine that provides the model with 285 horsepower and 260 pounds of torque. Combined with 4,800 rpm, the Unlimited has the capacity to travel well. Add in a 3,500 lb. towing capacity and the Unlimited is ready for getting both you and your gear to the great outdoors.
The newest Jeep Wrangler Unlimited comes with LCD displays, Bluetooth technology, Wi-Fi and the latest speakers, which can certainly come in handy on longer trips. Additionally, the dashboard features connectivity ports for all of your devices.
