To bring you a comprehensive review that wraps up the best reviews information available covering the 2010 Jeep Wrangler, TheCarConnection.com's SUV experts researched a wide range of publications. TheCarConnection.com's editors have also driven the new Jeep Wrangler on- and off-road in order to give you an expert opinion.

The Jeep Wrangler returns for 2010 with the same iconic features (including removable doors and a fold-down windshield) that have brought renown to this unique vehicle, as well as the body-on-frame chassis and solid front and rear axles that established the Wrangler as one of the most capable off-road SUVs on the market. The Jeep Wrangler is three years old in its current form but retains all the classic lines of Jeep's past. For the 2010 model year, it gets some minor updates in terms of the standard equipment it carries, and the soft top is improved for better ease of use.

The 3.8-liter V-6 engine produces 202 horsepower and comes with a choice of either manual or four-speed automatic transmissions. Fuel economy on rear-drive, manual-transmission models is as high as 16 mpg city, 21 highway, which is good for the Wrangler lineup but not particularly economical. The engine feels strong, but it still makes more noise than you might expect of a more traditional SUV. While the Jeep excels off-road, on the highway the Wrangler can have a jittery, bouncy ride with plenty of road noise and imprecise steering. Off-roading toughness of both Jeeps is assured by live axle front and rear suspensions, with 10.2 inches of ground clearance and the availability of a four-wheel-drive system with heavy-duty axles, locking differentials, Rock-Trac transfer case with extra-low gearing, electronically disconnecting stabilizer bar, and knobby BF Goodrich tires on Rubicon versions.

The 2010 Jeep Wrangler remains a choice like no other—and it's the only true convertible in which you can go off-roading.
