Edmunds Summary Review of the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport SUV

  • There are significant and serious reasons to think twice about the 2016 Jeep Wrangler, but there is also plenty to love about this unique, characterful, capable and unabashedly all-American SUV.
  • Pros

    All but unstoppable on the trail; unmistakable styling; numerous variations; extensive factory and aftermarket parts support; fun to drive in its own special way.

  • Cons

    Mediocre crash test scores; long braking distances; sloppy on-road handling; noisy interior; busy ride; questionable security with soft top; missing many of the latest safety and technology features; cumbersome convertible operation.

  • What’s New for 2016

    The Jeep Wrangler bolsters its already robust collection of special models with the addition of the Black Bear, 75th Anniversary and Backcountry Editions. The Wrangler Sahara trim gains some aesthetic updates and a new Olive Green interior option. There are also some new colors available, which, for the Wrangler, is actually quite noteworthy.
