After the recent update, which has brought two exciting powertrain options, we are pretty sure that the next year won’t be that interesting. This includes the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited as well, which comes as a four-door version of the legendary SUV. Although classified as a compact SUV, this particular version is on par with many mid-size rivals and offers not just unparalleled off-road capabilities but also plenty of passenger space and a high level of practicality.
All in all, you may count on a familiar layout. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the legendary styling, which comes with world-class off-road capabilities. Also, it comes with five powertrain options, which makes it one of the most versatile SUVs on the market. You can get a diesel version, a plug-in hybrid and even a hi-performance V8 engine option. Considering that no bigger changes are expected for the next year, we expect that the launch date will be scheduled for the second half of the year.
2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Design
The key characteristics of the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will certainly remain the same. We are talking about a four-door version of the legendary off-roader, which features pretty big dimensions and offers a high level of practicality. Speaking of the size, you may count on more than 118 inches in wheelbase, which ensures plenty of space for passengers. The front seats are particularly impressive, as there are more than 41 inches of legroom. The second row gets pretty close to 40 inches as well, so we can consider it very adult-friendly. The cargo area is also very generous with space, as you may count on about 32 cubic feet behind the second row and more than 72 cubic feet of the total volume. The boxy shape is quite friendly when it comes to bulky objects.
2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Engines
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will carry on with familiar powertrain options in the offer. The will be five versions in the offer, starting from a well-known 3.6-liter V6, which is good for about 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. There is also a new 2.0-liter turbo-four, which puts out around 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
Those who prefer diesel power can opt for a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel. It is good for about 260 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. The newest addition is a plug-in hybrid version, which is also based on a turbo-four, with a combined output of 375 horsepower and allows 25 miles of the all-electric range.
Finally, there is the new V8 version of the Wrangler Rubicon, which features a well-known 6.4-liter HEMI engine. You may count on a max output of 475 horsepower and needs just 4.5 seconds to hit 60 mph.
This aspect shouldn’t bring bigger changes either, so the offer will start with the Sport trim. It comes standard with things like cloth upholstery, manual windows and door locks, push-button start, three 12-volt outlets, a rearview camera, a 5-inch touch screen, an eight-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, and a USB port, so you can conclude it’s a pretty basic version of the SUV.
The Sport S is a bit of an upgrade, which adds goodies like air conditioning, power windows and door locks, and remote keyless entry. Also, it opens several optional packages.
The next one is Sahara, which comes with upgrades like dual-zone automatic climate control, premium cloth upholstery, a 7-inch touch screen, satellite radio, additional USB ports, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Furthermore, it also features bigger braes and side steps.
The Rubicon trim is the most capable version of the SUV. It comes with a plethora of off-road upgrades, starting from rock rails, locking front and rear differentials, a sway bar, and an upgraded transfer case and 4WD system. Also, it is the trim that includes the V8 engine to the offer.
The plug-in hybrid is offered as a separate trim level, called 4xe. Other than the powertrain, things aren’t much different compared to regular models.
2022 Jeep Wrangler Release Date and Price
Since there are no bigger changes to come for the 2022 Jeep Wrangler, we expect it will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year. The starting price should go around 33.000 dollars.
