The 2012 Wrangler Sport – A new Jeep for a new year
There are a lot of vehicles on the market competing for drivers’ dollars, and it would be fair to say that many of these vehicles (in certain categories) are very similar. Today we’re focusing on one which truly stands out – the brand new 2012 Jeep Wrangler.
A Jeep with plenty of sporty flexibility
The new Wrangler Sport is marketed as perhaps the most flexible 4×4 vehicle on the market, and it doesn’t just present itself as a rugged, go-anywhere four by four – it actually is!
The Wrangler is also flexible, with plenty of options. Drivers can choose between a two door and a four door, both of which come in two specs: The two door options are the Sport and Rubicon, and the four door options are the Unlimited and the Unlimited Rubicon. Then, simply pile on the add-ons to customise your Jeep and really make it your own.
At the same time, it can be a soft-top convertible, which allows you to really connect with your inner Beer Grylls, while the Renegade Upgrade package transforms the Wrangler into a comfortable, sporty hard top. The additional moulded roof makes for a more “city friendly” vehicle, so when you don’t feel that adventurous and want to hide from the elements, you can.
The Wrangler Sport also features removable doors with power windows, seventeen inch alloy wheels, Jeep’s Command track shift on the fly transfer case, Hill Descent Control, an Electronic Vehicle Information Centre, four wheel disc ABS, and a Media Centre.
Forget your past experiences with Jeep Wranglers
Some people have reported less than stellar experiences with Jeeps in the past, citing that they were not always the best vehicles when it comes to quiet engines, handling and fuel efficiency. However, this time around, the newer Jeeps provide a very different experience. The new Jeep is a lot quieter (even with the roof off), there’s more than enough power from the six cylinder, 3.8 litre petrol engine, and it’s also efficient and comfortable.
Add all this to the slick six speed manual, you don’t have to drive it far to realise that this is a vehicle that will get you anywhere. Did we mention how cool it looks as well?
Even if you’re not an off-road kind of person, we think you’d almost convert to one, or at least look the part. However, if you are an off-roader, we suggest that you don’t test drive a new 2012 Jeep Wrangler – we’re betting that you won’t want to give it back!
