2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
Here in the Richmond, New Baltimore, and Detroit area, we’re a lot closer to the city than we are to the great outdoors. However, if you’re looking to head off-road, adventure is probably a lot closer than you think.
When you head for the hills, you better make sure you’re behind the wheel of an SUV as capable as the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. In this review, our team at Dick Huvaere’s Richmond Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is going to show you why.
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: Off-Road & Towing Capabilities
Off-road adventure seems to be just what the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is known for; and it’s no wonder why. This SUV was literally built for rugged driving.
Structurally, it’s got everything you need to navigate the rockier roads, starting with a rigid fuel tank, stabilizer bars, and transfer case skid plates. These features protect your vehicle from debris-caused damage.
Next, you’ll have the Command-Trac® shift-on-the-fly, part-time 4WD drive system. Unlike standard 4×4 systems, Command-Trac® was specifically designed for handling uncultivated road conditions. Rocks, sand, mud, and snow should be no problem.
Lastly, if you have any need to tow some extra gear or vehicles, it shouldn’t be any problem with the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Thanks to all those structural reinforcements, you’ll have a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: Performance Specs
The towing capacity in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited doesn’t just come from its structural reinforcements. A great deal of it can be attributed to its powertrain.
Standard in the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is a 3.6L V6 engine, capable of generating 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. With its standard six-speed manual transmission, it maintains an EPA-estimated 21 MPG highway and 16 MPG city1.
For your safety, the Wrangler Unlimited is then equipped with speed and traction controls, and a hydraulic assist brake booster. That way, all that engine power won’t put you at risk.
Staying Comfortable in the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
Since you’re going to be spending a lot of time in your Jeep Wrangler Unlimited on road trips, extra space and comfort are a necessity. Fortunately, the SUV comes with 104 cubic feet of total passenger space and 31.5 cubic feet of cargo room.
Cloth encompasses the interior for a softer touch. You shouldn’t have any trouble settling into the low-backed bucket front seats—especially with their adjustable head restraints.
You’ll then have plenty of entertainment features at your disposal, too. With the available Uconnect® voice connect with Bluetooth®, you can connect your mobile devices with ease. They’ll sound great with the eight-speaker audio system.
