Jeep has always been a favorite amongst off-roading enthusiasts. The best part about Jeep off-road vehicles is that they do not require many modifications to handle harsh condition. They are ready to conquer almost any type of terrains straight out of the factory. One of the most popular Jeep brands is the Wrangler.

The best thing about a Wrangler is that it is not merely a mean off-road machine, but also a great luxury vehicle. You can use it as a daily driver and take it for a spin on the rough terrain whenever you wish. The vehicle is economical in terms of maintenance and gas mileage. With the introduction of the 2015 model, the company hopes to impress Wrangler enthusiasts further. Let’s look at what Jeep is offering with the 2015 Jeep Wrangler:

Engine Specifications

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler has a single engine across all trims and variants. This engine generates incredible power for its size. The best part about this engine is that it is durable. It is specifically built to handle the harshest conditions. In other words, this engine can handle almost anything you throw at it. The engine is a V-type with six cylinders. The capacity of this engine is 3.6 liters. This engine may seem small but it generates quite a bit of power for its size. It is economical in terms of gas mileage as well, which is a huge plus point.

Engine Performance

The engine of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler delivers 285 ponies at a mere 6,400 RPM. In addition, the 3.6-liter V-6 is rated to produce 260 pounds of torque per feet at 4,800 RPM. However, the most impressive aspect of the engine remains the gas mileage. For an engine of its stature, the gas mileage is without a doubt impressive. In city driving will easily give you 17 miles to each gallon. On the other hand, if you drive on the highway, you should expect nothing less than 21 miles to a gallon. With a combined gas mileage of 18 miles to a gallon, it is one of the most economical off-road vehicles in its class.

Transmission Options

Since this ride is meant specifically for off-roading, you will not find the same luxury aspects in it. The 2015 Jeep Wrangler only features a single transmission option. The transmission that is paired with its engine is a 6-speed manual. However, the gear ratios this transmission delivers are excellent and the gear shifting is smooth. The transmission model number is NSG370. Each of the variants of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler has a 4-Wheel Drive system. If you wish, you can activate all four wheels from within the vehicle. This enhances the off-roading experience significantly and makes it easier for the Wrangler to make it through rough terrains.

Interior Styling

The Wrangler brand is probably the only off-road vehicle that features a comfortable interior. The seats are large and extremely comfortable and there is plenty of legroom for the front and rear passengers. The 2015 Jeep Wrangler has less room for passengers. It can only seat 4 passengers but it is rather comfortable. The instrument panel is simple, but functional. It features two large displays for the RPM and speed towards the center. In addition, there are two smaller displays on each side, one for the engine temperature and the other for the fuel level.

Exterior Design

The exterior design of the Wrangler has been the same for the past couple of years. There are a few changes here and there, but the overall appearance is pretty much the same. The 2015 Jeep Wrangler has a few fresh additions to the design, but it retains its classic appearance.

If you have a small family and want to own an off-road vehicle, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler should be your first choice.
