(2004 model shown)


Jeep's familiar Wrangler comes in standard-length and stretched-wheelbase "Unlimited" versions. The latter provides an additional two inches of rear-seat legroom, expanded cargo space and improved ride qualities (though the vehicle will still leave you shaken, not stirred, over a rough road).


A 147-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine remains the standard powerplant, while an available 4.0-liter in-line six-cylinder engine generates 190 horsepower and 235 lb-ft of torque. Both can be mated to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission.


The Rubicon edition is the most rugged Wrangler with its "Rock-Trac" heavy-duty four-wheel-drive system. Basically equipped, the Wrangler can be fitted with optional features like anti-lock brakes, a full metal top, a CD stereo, side steps, and a locking trunk box.


Otherwise only minor alterations are planned for 2006 as the Wrangler awaits a major revision for 2007.

Plenty of limitations, but unlimited fun.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
