If you’re looking for a compact crossover with rugged classic looks, there may be a 2022 Jeep Wrangler in your future. The Wrangler is as at home on the road as it is crawling along off-road trails. While yesterday’s Wranglers were chiefly bare-bones vehicles, the model you can purchase today at the Niles Jeep dealer features the latest technology features that buyers demand. When you step up to the higher trims, you’ll get the kind of sophisticated interior you’d expect to find in a luxury model.
Buyers can choose between two engines, including a powerful turbo-four. With a host of trim levels and a long list of standard and optional features, customers at dealers like the Jeep dealer in Niles can get the 2022 Jeep Wrangler that’s just right for their needs and budget.
The automotive media have been fans of the Jeep Wrangler for some time. Edmunds writes:
“The Wrangler oozes personality. It’s fun to drive in a visceral way and ... has just enough of a modern vibe to make it feel nicely up-to-date. There’s no doubt the Wrangler is a beast when it comes to off-road prowess.”
The 2022 Jeep Wrangler is powered by a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine generating 286 horses and 260 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard. An optional eight-speed automatic features a mild-hybrid system that boosts fuel economy. Buyers can also choose an available turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 270 hp and 295 lb-ft, coupled to the eight-speed automatic gearbox. Equipped with this powerplant, the 2022 Wrangler gets fuel economy rated at 22 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.*
Available advanced safety features include automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, forward automatic emergency braking, a forward-facing camera, rear parking sensors, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
The 2022 Jeep Wrangler is available in six trim levels, listed as Sport, Willys Sport, Sport S, Willys, Sahara and Rubicon. All models get all-wheel drive as standard equipment. The two-door Wrangler is also offered in a four-door version called the Wrangler Unlimited. There’s also a new plug-in hybrid called the Wrangler Unlimited 4xe. These models aren’t covered in this review.
Standard features for the Wrangler’s base Sport trim include 17-inch steel wheels, all-season tires, halogen headlights, fog lights, push-button start, cloth upholstery, manual windows and door locks, manually adjustable front seats, manually adjustable side mirrors, a soft top, skid plates, tow hooks and a rearview camera. Also standard is a 5-inch infotainment touchscreen, an audio system with eight speakers, two USB ports and Bluetooth.
Options include keyless entry, all-terrain tires, a rear limited-slip differential, leather upholstery, a hardtop, half doors with fabric upper panels, a Class II tow hitch receiver, rock sliders, side steps and satellite radio.
