The 2008 Jeep Wrangler boasts many features that can't be found on any other vehicle.
Three versions are offered, Edmunds reports: “bare-bones X, midlevel Sahara and serious off-road-oriented Rubicon.” There’s also a right-hand-drive version destined for mail delivery.
One such feature is the removable top. Although it is possible to remove the top on a two-door convertible car, "the Unlimited model is the only four-door convertible on the market," Edmunds points out. “That's why you can still fold down the windshield, pull the pins out of the exposed hinges and remove the doors, and peel away all or part of the roof to expose yourself to the admiring world,” Automobile adds. There’s a soft Sunrider top, which has a panel that flips back like a sunroof. Or there’s the “three-piece Freedom Top, which has separate, removable panels over the driver and the front-seat passenger.” With the Freedom Top, the Wrangler Jeep can go roofed, as a targa, or as a full convertible, which definitely increases its appeal. The Freedom Top’s “considerable bulk might turn off fans of open-air driving, but for those in northern climates it's probably preferable to the standard cloth,” Cars.com observes.
Edmunds says of the Wrangler, Jeep’s “new model is actually tolerable on longer highway trips, thanks to a much quieter cabin, more comfortable seats and the availability of luxuries such as a CD changer, a navigation system and full power accessories.” Yes, you heard it right: Jeeps can come with navigation systems, as well as air conditioning, alloy wheels, and tow hooks. Its utter flexibility, along with those options and others like Bluetooth connectivity, MyGIG music storage, Sirius Satellite Radio, and a hardcore off-road package, convinced TheCarConnection.com’s editors to give it a top 10 rating for features.
The 2008 Jeep Wrangler provides many standard features that can't be found on other vehicles, as well as many additional options.
