2011 Jeep Wrangler Styling

You won't mistake the Jeep Wrangler for any other new vehicle from the outside. The Wrangler enters 2011 with the same iconic exterior, with one of the boxiest, hard-edged looks in the business—enforced by details like removable doors, outside door hinges, and a fold-down windshield. The flat side sheetmetal, trapezoidal wheel flares, and seven-slot grille also keep with the Wrangler's ready-for-the-trail, military-truck heritage.

Not much has changed on the outside this year, and that's a good thing. The Wrangler is still offered in two-door Wrangler and four-door Wrangler Unlimited variants; Sahara trims get a new body-colored hardtop, and five new colors for this year brighten up the color palette.

Inside, changes on the 2011 Jeep Wrangler are much more significant. It gets what Jeep calls an all-new interior, and it's true; the instrument panels and door panels are newly contoured, trims have been freshened and much improved, and the look and feel is more sophisticated even if the layout is still abbreviated and upright. Overall, it's more rounded, with softer detailing throughout, and it's likely that few will miss the more angular, parts-bin look of last year's model. 

The 2011 Jeep Wrangler keeps its timeless, instantly recognizable exterior but trades its bargain-basement interior in for a softer look.
