larger and more refined
Edmunds

Fancy and genteel by Wrangler standards
USA Today

Two versions of the 2009 Jeep Wrangler are available, a two-door and four-door model, as well as both soft and hard convertible tops. Redesigned in 2007, the 2009 Wrangler retains traditional Jeep styling cues, while still essentially being, as Car and Driver notes, a “cult vehicle.”

Styling is mostly “familiar,” Edmunds remarks. The four-door Unlimited, however, brings a unique silhouette to the world; it “inhabits its own new market niche: the four-door convertible,” Automobile Magazine says. USA Today thinks it’s "fancy and genteel by Wrangler standards," while Cars.com calls it "refined and masculine," and Edmunds deems it “strangely attractive.” Cars.com says that now, with the extra two doors, "You could almost call it a civilized design."

Edmunds asserts the "2009 Jeep Wrangler firmly maintains its heritage, image and off-road ability while also being more refined." It’s also “larger and more refined” than the last-generation Wrangler Jeep, they add. Automobile Magazine notes some details that disguise the Wrangler’s gains in size: “Black plastic fender flares in place of body-color flares help disguise the fact that the Wrangler is nearly half a foot wider overall,” they report.

The interior of the 2009 Jeep Wrangler’s isn't palatial, but it matches its rugged exterior. Especially with the Wrangler, “Jeep interiors aren't the top of the class. They often feature too many bulky plastic surfaces, but considering the rugged nature of the Wrangler, we'll give them a pass,” Cars.com says.

Conclusion

Love it or hate it, the 2009 Jeep Wrangler retains its traditional rugged design in both two- and four-door versions.

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.
