2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport Utility
Benefits of Driving a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport Utility
With prices starting at a little over $20,000 and standard 4-wheel drive, the classic Wrangler is one of the best SUVs for the money in its class. The 6-speed manual transmission helps the Wrangler achieve a not-too-shabby 15 mpg city and 19 mpg highway rating. Inside, the multi-function steering wheel and 6-speaker sound system are standard across the board. With a rugged rock-crawler like this, it's important to note for new shoppers that even at its least expensive, the Wrangler's doors are still all metal with roll-up windows ? and they can still be taken off completely.
What's new for 2011?
The changes for the 2011 Wrangler are almost entirely in the passenger compartment. The rough-and-ready Jeep gets nicer materials and sound-deadening measures for a more comfortable ride. The sound system also got an upgrade, now including USB connectivity and controls on the steering wheel. There are also five new colors for the Wrangler, though engines and transmissions remain the same for all trim levels.
- Iconic exterior remains
- interior gets needed upgrade
- new technology in a simple SUV
There are four trim levels for the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited this year, and they all have a 3.8-liter V6 engine, which is plenty for getting the lightweight body of this Jeep wherever it needs to go. The engine makes 202 hp at 5200 rpm and 237 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. All Wrangler models have a 6-speed manual transmission as standard equipment
