What powertrain options do I have with the Jeep Wrangler JL?

Though many aspects of the Wrangler have been updated or changed, Jeep knows not to fix something that isn't broken. One of the most notable retentions from the last generation is its award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. With 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, the V6 provides ample power for every adventure you may want to take with your Wrangler. Though this is the same engine that has powered the Wrangler for years, it has received some mechanical upgrades this year to achieve greater fuel efficiency than ever before. The V6s overall tow capacity varies depending on body style; the two-door Wrangler can tow up to 2,000 pounds and the four-door Wrangler "JLU," 3,500 pounds. In addition to the V6 engine, the new Wrangler comes outfitted with a six-speed automatic transmission and your choice of three available four-wheel-drive systems.

What kind of 4x4 capability does the All-New Wrangler have?

The heart of the Wrangler's off-road prowess is its lineup of available 4x4 systems. The first of these is the Selec-Trac 4x4 System, which switches back and forth between two and four-wheel drive as needed automatically. This allows the Wrangler to tackle tough terrain when it encounters some, but also reap the fuel-saving benefits of 2WD when driving over smooth surfaces. Up next is the Command-Trac system, with shift-on-the-fly capability via an NV241 GII transfer case. This system is perfect for towing and crawling, with a neutral range and a 2.72:1 low range. For the pinnacle of off-road navigation, however, your best bet is the incredibly rugged Rock-Trac system. Standard on the Rubicon trim, Command-Trac enhances torque and overall control for easy maneuvering over any terrain you might encounter.

What safety and security features are available for the All-New Wrangler JL?

Plenty of standard and available safety features combine to give Wrangler drivers peace of mind. Some of the best passive safety features include advanced front and side airbags, high-strength steel beams in the vehicle's body construction, a full-sized spare tire, and a tire pressure monitoring system. Additional features are available, such as automatic crash notification, and a passive entry system with automatically unlocking doors activated by key fob proximity. For assistance in backing up and parking, a ParkView Rear Back-Up camera is available, as well as a ParkSense Rear Parking Assistance System. Also available is a Blind Spot Monitoring System and Rear Cross Path Detection, which use radar-based sensors to detect objects out of your view.
