    The Wrangler remains true to himself

    Designed and built to excel off the beaten path, this Wrangler new generation is no exception to the rule. Its design remains faithful to its history, and it is so much better that way.

    Under a design almost identical to that of the old generation, the Jeep Wrangler is no compromise. It is still a machine for driving off-road, built first and foremost to cross any trail.

    Except that, in addition to that, the Wrangler is now much more liveable on a daily basis via the adoption of a multitude of improvements that make it surprisingly civilized.

    Inside, Jeep says hello to the Twenty-first century by getting rid of the indicators antiquated which still held on to the dashboard of the Wrangler. It now offers the latest generation of the mylink infotainment system UConnect with a touch screen which can go from 5 to 8.4 inches, depending on the version chosen.
