Jeep Wrangler Lineup: Which Wrangler Is The One For You?
Jeep Wrangler: Sport, Sahara, Rubicon
The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most recognized and legendary vehicles in American history. Tracing its roots to the battlefields of World War II, the Wrangler has a well-earned reputation for rugged capability and an adventurous, go-anywhere attitude.
However, with so many different model configurations, choosing the right one can be an interesting challenge. Three of the most popular are the Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon models. Like siblings in a family, they all share a common heritage and similar looks while holding their own unique characteristics and personality.
With the mountains right in our backyard, drivers in Colorado Springs, Denver, and Castle Rock understand the importance of a fully-capable off-road vehicle. So which Wrangler should you drive? With a little research, choosing the right Wrangler for your needs is actually quite simple…
Jeep Wrangler Sport
The Jeep Wrangler Sport is the most simple, basic, and affordable Jeep Wrangler. As a base model, the Wrangler Sport comes with normal-duty suspension, 16-inch steel wheels, and Command-Trac four-wheel drive. It has the fewest standard features, but it can be enhanced to have options like navigation, SiriusXM radio, and a premium black soft-top. While it may be the most simplified Wrangler, the Sport still offers top-notch off-road capability, and it’s also a great choice for Jeep enthusiasts who want a simple Wrangler that they can upgrade on their own. That’s where the Jeep personality shines through the most, so hobbyist mechanics are well advised to go for the Wrangler Sport.
Jeep Wrangler Sahara
While this vehicle has excellent off-road capability, many Jeep enthusiasts consider the Jeep Wrangler Sahara the luxury model of the group, because it comes with many standard comfort, convenience, and style features that are unavailable or optional on other Wranglers. These include power one-touch windows, power door locks, and body-colored fender flares. Like the Sport, the Wrangler Sahara has Command-Trac four-wheel drive, but it also has a heavy-duty suspension system with gas shocks for added smoothness on the highway and the trail.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
By all accounts, the Rubicon is the off-road leader of the Wrangler family. Don’t be mistaken, any Wrangler is an off-road machine, but the Rubicon has performance suspension and a 4:1 Rock-Trac four-wheel drive system. The Wrangler Rubicon also comes with rock rails, aggressive, deep-tread off-roading tires, and electronic front sway-bar disconnect. If you are looking for the most off-road capable Wrangler right out the gate, with the least necessary modifications, we suggest you choose the Rubicon.
