    Some vehicles out there are more for showing off and making people jealous, while others are only intended to be a practical transporter and nothing more. However, there are some vehicles that are so beloved that entire communities have formed around them, and the experience you have while driving is unlike anything else on the market. The 2023 Jeep Wrangler is one such vehicle. The Jeep Wrangler is one of Jeep’s best-selling vehicles, serving off-roaders as far back as the mid-1980s. To say the Jeep Wrangler has left its mark on the off-roading community would be an understatement. People show strong devotion to America's go anywhere, do anything vehicle, and that brand loyalty continues even with the 2023 model.

    The 2023 Jeep Wrangler is available in twelve trims, so you can tailor your experience from bare-bones adventurer to high-end explorer. The Sport is the base-level Wrangler, and the 2023 model starts at an MSRP of $31,195.[a] There’s no shortage of configuration and customization when purchasing a 2023 Wrangler with trims like the luxurious High Altitude, rugged Rubicon, and high-performance Rubicon 392. The Rubicon 392 is one of the best performance off-roading vehicles you can find and is a must-have for anyone who loves excitement off the pavement.

    A Powerhouse Range of Engines

    The Jeep Wrangler is a powerhouse and one of the most trusted vehicles on the trail for many reasons. If you simply want a Wrangler to handle your daily commute with a little bit of adventure on the weekends, the Wrangler's base engine will have plenty of power for you. However, if you want to get down and dirty, one of the Wrangler's available engines might be more your speed.

    Keeping It Basic

    The 2023 model has a standard 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine you can pair with either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. Like years prior, the 3.6L V6 engine is the only engine that allows for a six-speed manual transmission, which many drivers will be happy about. Regardless of which transmission type you choose, you’ll still have the standard four-wheel drive. With the manual transmission, fuel efficiency is around 17 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. With the eight-speed automatic transmission, the Wrangler’s base 3.6L V6 engine gets 20 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway. The 3.6L V6 engine is also available with eTorque––a mild-hybrid system.

    Those unfamiliar with eTorque, here’s how it works: instead of an alternator like a regular engine has, the 3.6L V6 engine with eTorque uses a motor that harnesses electricity when you’re slowing down to power your auxiliary systems, and in turn, you get an improvement in low-end torque output. It’s worth noting the 3.6L V6 with eTorque is only available with an eight-speed automatic transmission and not the manual transmission like the variant without eTorque; however, both options will produce 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.

    Options and More Options

    The turbocharged 2.0L I-4 engine from prior years is still present and achieves the same 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque as before, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. For those who prefer diesel, there is the 3.0L turbo-diesel I-6 that generates an impressive 260 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. However, all of this pales to the Wrangler Rubicon 392 with its 6.4L HEMI 392 V8 engine. The only Wrangler that offers a HEMI engine, the 392 V8 produces a hearty 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque and can achieve a speed of 60 mph in only 4.5 seconds––incredibly impressive.

    Born to Travel Through the Dirt

    The Wrangler has a lineage dating back to some of Jeep’s most historical creations, like the Willy MB that served many American soldiers in World War II. Ultimately, the Wrangler is a strong vehicle capable of withstanding roads and weather that would make other automobiles crumple. The first thing that makes the Wrangler a capable off-roading machine is the four-wheel drive on every model. The Wrangler also offers an incredible amount of ground clearance, and the powerful Rubicon model features a 1:100 crawl ratio.

    The ground clearance of your Wrangler varies depending on the configuration you’ve opted for, but at its best, the Wrangler offers 12.9 inches of ground clearance. Along with standing over a foot off the ground, the Wrangler can be fitted with a skid plate and armor for the undercarriage. The Wrangler can also provide monotube shocks, and the suspension is tuned for off-roading, but if you want a real off-roading experience, you should opt for either the Xtreme Recon Package on the Willys, Rubicon, or Rubicon 392 trims.

    With the Xtreme Recon Package, your Wrangler is treated to 35-inch wheels, which contribute to the aforementioned 12.9 inches of ground clearance. The Xtreme Recon Package also helps the Wrangler achieve a 40.4-degree departure angle, a 47.4-degree approach angle, and 33.6 inches of available water fording depth. Should you opt for the Rubicon 392, you’ll be getting the best possible off-roading experience, especially with the likes of the 6.4L HEMI V8 engine that produces 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The Rubicon 392 also has a ramp travel index of 730 and comes standard with 33-inch tires unless you opt for the Xtreme Recon Package with its larger wheels. Off-roading is easily doable with a Wrangler, and the enthusiasts who like to take on complicated trails will undoubtedly go with the Rubicon 392.

    Interior Tech Features

    The 2023 Jeep Wrangler carries over the changes made in the 2022 model, meaning the seven-inch touchscreen is standard, though the optional 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment center is still the preferred option for many. However, you don’t need to upgrade to the bigger-screen infotainment center to get the features everyone wants, like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, for seamless connectivity between your smartphone and your Wrangler’s infotainment center.

    If you’re planning on off-roading, you should opt for the larger screen size because with the optional Forward-Facing Off-Road Camera, you’ll have a better view of the trail ahead thanks to extra screen real-estate, and you can wipe the camera clean with the press of a button. Will you be taking your Wrangler on a camping trip? If so, you’ll be pleased to know you can opt for a wireless hotspot for internet connectivity on your wireless devices that are both speedy and secure. The hotspot allows multiple people to connect at once, and you’ll have plenty of space between yourself and the vehicle before the signal weakens.

    Wrangler models are built to handle all the elements, so if you’re the type to travel to colder regions to do some off-roading, even if that’s states away, then you’ll want some of the available features designed to fight the cold weather. Firstly, heated seats are available and are a must for those who plan on driving in the snow, and heated mirrors can ensure you never lose visibility of your surroundings. You can also opt for leather seating if you’d prefer that over cloth.

    Safety and Driver-Assist Features

    The 2023 Jeep Wrangler also has its fair share of available safety features. There are safety features for many occasions, so you can ensure your vehicle is always looking out for you, whether you're parking your car, backing out of a parking space, driving on the freeway, or exploring some wild locations. For example, the Parkview Rear Backup Camera displayed on the infotainment center’s screen will work in tandem with the ParkSense Rear Park Assist System, which is especially useful when parallel parking, which can be a tedious task for many.

    The 2023 Jeep Wrangler also offers features like Automatic High-Beam Headlamps for nighttime driving and Adaptive Cruise Control that both speeds up and slows down your vehicle dynamically, depending on the distance between yourself and the driver ahead of you. The 2023 Wrangler also offers Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection utilizing the same sensors used on the previously mentioned ParkView Rear Park Assist System. Your Wrangler can also have a Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking to help you avoid frontal impacts, rounding out the already impressive list of features.
