A titan in the compact SUV world, the Jeep Wrangler is nothing short of iconic. It's a vehicle that has been produced since 1986 and has never wavered in its position as a fantastic off-roader. The 2017 Jeep Wrangler is a celebration of all that history—it has exceptional 4WD capabilities and a powerful base engine, with plenty of trims and sub-trims to choose from. While the amenities are basic on lower trims, this simplicity comes with excellent perks, such as the ability to remove the roof, doors, and windshield and feel the sun on your face or the wind in your hair as you explore.

Few SUVs can hold a candle to the Wrangler's ability to traverse challenging terrain, including mountains and forests. Even the base 2017 model is fully equipped to handle the roughest parts of the great outdoors, with part-time four-wheel drive and skid plates as standard. If you're really adventurous, the Rubicon trim adds even more off-roading features, including rock rails, an advanced 4WD system with locking front and rear differentials, and performance suspension.
Exceptional 4x4 capabilities require plenty of grunt under the hood. The 2017 Jeep Wrangler has a 3.6L four-cylinder V6 engine as standard, which provides 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. This power is plenty for crawling over rocks or cruising down the highway. There are also two transmission options: a six-speed manual is standard, and a five-speed automatic transmission is available across the trims.
One of the many elements that gives the 2017 Jeep Wrangler an advantage over other 4WD vehicles is its ground clearance. There's a solid 8.2 inches beneath this SUV, giving it the literal height advantage over jagged rocks and rough terrain. If you're looking to master the outdoors, the impressive height afforded by the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is a necessity.
The 2017 Jeep Wrangler is something of a shapeshifter when it comes to personalizing your drive. The vehicle comes with a soft-top as standard, which is easy to fold back when you want to feel the sun beaming down. Sahara and Rubicon trims are available with a modular hard-top roof that comes apart in three pieces. And the fun doesn't end there—you can also remove not only the doors of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler, but the windshield, too. Combine all three, and you have the ultimate outdoor experience.
Being a deeply practical vehicle, it's no surprise that the 2017 Jeep Wrangler has plenty of storage space. While the cargo capacity isn't huge—12.8 cu ft behind the rear seats and 61.2 cu ft with the rear seats folded—there's a plethora of storage bins and hidey-holes to keep all manner of things within easy reach. Wrangler Unlimited sub-trims increase the cargo space to 31.5 cu ft behind the rear seats, and 70.6 cu ft with the rear seats folded.

The Jeep Wrangler has a part-time four-wheel-drive system as standard. To put the Wrangler into 4WD mode, bring it to a stop, put it in neutral using the gear selector, keep your foot on the brake, and move the 4WD shift selector from 2H to 4H. Then move back into drive on the gear selector and go.
No, the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sport—which is the base trim—does not offer air conditioning. That's only available for the Sahara and Rubicon trims. However, it's easy to simulate air conditioning by removing the roof, windshield, or doors—or all the above.
