The time has finally come; I’m near Tucson, Arizona, preparing to drive the next generation Jeep Wrangler both on and off-road. So now’s the time to tell me what you want to learn about the newest version of the “truest” Jeep in the brand’s lineup.
I only get one day behind the wheel of the JL Wrangler, which is definitely not enough time to dismantle the off-roader bolt by bolt like I had originally planned. So I guess I’ll have to make do with just driving on a road course and on some off-road trails.
Will the trails be remotely difficult, or will they be watered-down to cater to the driving skills of your average auto journalist? How will the JL compare to its predecessor, the JK? Is it worth the extra coin over the outgoing model (we don’t have official pricing, but it’s probably safe to say it’ll be more expensive than the JK)? Has the ride quality improved? How is the fuel economy?
I will soon have answers.
