Jeep Wrangler JK

2007 saw the complete redesign of the Jeep Wrangler, in both two and four-door models. The TJ platform was replaced by a new JK platform. This next-generation Wrangler is significantly larger than the existing model, with a 2 in (50.8 mm) longer wheelbase and 4 in (101.6 mm) wider track.


Many Wrangler enthusiasts have decried this new vehicle's larger size, claiming that it runs counter to the character of the Wrangler, and is too big to be an effective off-road vehicle. However, it should be noted that similar complaints were heard during previous redesigns. Jeep reportedly intends to cement the Wrangler's position as the marquee's most-rugged vehicle as new car-based crossover SUVs take some of its on-road market share.

The JK Wrangler is available in two versions:

A short wheelbase 2-door

Introduced at 2006 North American International Auto Show with Chrysler group CEO, Tom LaSorda driving it up the steps and through a plate glass window, just as Robert Lutz had done at the show in 1992 with the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

A long wheelbase 4-door

A 3.8 L OHV V6 producing 205 hp (153 kW) and 240 ft·lbf (325 N·m) will be the base engine, replacing the venerable AMC Straight-6 engine. The 4.7 L PowerTech V8 and 2.8 L VM Motori turbo-Diesel straight-4 used in the Liberty are likely to also be offered as options in some markets. A 6-speed manual transmission will be standard, with a 4-speed automatic transmission offered as an option. Stability control will be a new safety feature for the Wrangler line.

A 3-piece hardtop or traditional soft top will be offered. The new hardtop allows the sides to be removed for an open-air feeling. Although the doors can still be removed in traditional Wrangler fashion, power windows and remote power door locks will be offered for the first time. Another first is an available navigation system.

    This is probably the most rumored, criticized, and hated Jeep vehicle that we can think of in recent memory (besides the Patriot, the Compass, the Liberty, the Commander, and the Grand Cherokee SRT8) — and that's before anyone even saw it. Will it have IFS?! Will it have four doors?! Will it have a diesel?! Will the windshield flip down anymore?!   Here's the skinny on the all-new Wrangler — decide for yourself whether you can finally sleep at night again. ... read more ...
