3 Reasons the Jeep Wrangler Is the 2019 Motor Trend SUV of the Year


Anyone on the market for a new SUV should take a moment to consider the 2019 Jeep Wrangler, which recently won the 2019 Motor Trend SUV of the Year award. Let's take a look at what features make this all-time classic a new top dog in the SUV world. 

A Bold, Purposefully Built Exterior

The Wrangler may have one of the most easily recognizable bodies in the car world. The chiseled body shape with a distinctive grille has, without a doubt, reached celebrity status. It's not just about the looks, though. The exterior of the award-winning Wrangler is designed to serve a purpose.

For example, the fender flares on the Rubicon trim are designed for high ground clearance, and off-road tires up to 35 inches can be installed. You can enhance your view of the trail ahead by removing and tying down the windshield with only four bolts. For comparison, previous models required 28 bolts to be removed. The power sunroof can go from open to closed in 20 seconds. A full suite of available LED lights, including headlamps, fog lamps, taillamps, and daytime running lights, light the road ahead brilliantly.

Fully Connected Interior

The interior of the 2019 Wrangler is just as impressive as the exterior. The increasingly popular Uconnect system allows for Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM radio connectivity. The available navigation system helps you reach your destination, no matter how far from home you end up. Bluetooth connectivity allows for voice-activated controls. If you find your passengers are getting antsy, simply fire up the Wi-Fi hot spot to turn your Jeep's cellular connection into a wireless router, delivering internet to all in need. 

One of the more impressive dashboard features is the data integration in the driver display. Available features allow you to display key features such as safety or navigation information directly next to your speed and RPM data.

Comfort is also of utmost importance on the new Wrangler. The Sport and Sport Plus trims include soft black or tan-colored cloth, while the Sahara, Rubicon, and MOAB trims have either a premium cloth, leather, or premium cloth and leather trim. 

World-Renowned Off-Road Capability

We wouldn't be talking about the Jeep Wrangler if we didn't bring up its prowess when it comes to off-road capability. There are three 4x4 systems to choose from, allowing you to select which configuration suits your needs the best. As always, the Wrangler scores on all levels of off-road performance, including articulation, water fording, traction and power delivery, maneuverability, and ground clearance. 

Take your off-road capabilities to the next level with features such as differential distribution for better traction, a sway bar you can disconnect, and low gear ratios for intense hill climbs. 

There's a lot to be excited about when it comes to this year's SUV of the year. The Wrangler delivers on so many levels, it's hard to pass up the opportunity to give it a test drive.
