Few vehicles receive more hype leading up to their redesign than the new Wrangler. Here is the highly anticipated JK replacement. Just as solid as before but smarter than ever. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL Rubicon. With the first comprehensive Wrangler redesign in over a decade, comes the Wrangler JL. Through Wrangler’s 77-year development, the design team was able to preserve its core values.
From the naked eye, the new Wrangler may look like a slightly updated JK, but it’s actually all new from the ground up. With closer examination reveals the new Wrangler’s improved aerodynamics, design features, and much more. Whether the Wrangler Sport, Sahara, or Rubicon, each Wrangler has its own appearance and performance. It’s the Rubicon that gets the Trail Rated badge with heavy duty axels, Rock-Trac transfer case, an electronic sway bar disconnect for greater wheel articulation, and the highest ground clearance. If this is your idea of off-road capability, the Wrangler Rubicon is the best vehicle for the job. It is ready to go straight from the factory.
Overall, the whole package of the JL is far more refined than the JK Wrangler it replaces. Jeep’s Wrangler is an incredible success that stays true to its roots, and it does so better than ever before. The new Wrangler JL takes a huge jump forward in terms of styling, technology, and the rest is how it’s always been. I give this a Matt’s Garage rating of 85 out of 100.
