Earlier this year, Jeep Wrangler was named the "Best and Most Significant 4x4 Vehicle of the Decade" by Four Wheeler magazine editors, and the "Best New Car for Off-Roaders" by Cars.com.

Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

The two-door Jeep Wrangler remains true to its heritage as the original, extreme fun-and-freedom machine and is the only 4x4 with multiple open-air options.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is the only four-door open-air SUV on the market with room for five adult passengers. It is extremely popular with customers who want a Jeep Wrangler, but need additional space and versatility.

Standard on both models is the innovative Sunrider® soft top, which includes a sun roof in addition to the full top-down option. Wrangler's available Freedom Top®, a three-piece modular hard top, features left and right front-passenger panels and a rear panel, providing more options for open-air driving. Either top may be completely removed for the ultimate open-air experience.
