The Jeep Wrangler is a compact off-road vehicle, with roots tracing back to the Second World War. The Jeep was reintroduced as the Wrangler in the mid-1980s. The current model was last redesigned for the 2007 model year. New for 2011, Jeep has fitted this model with a new interior, including improved sound insulation and more options. Hill start assist, trailer stability control, and vehicle stability control are now standard; the hardtop on the Sahara model now matches the body color.

The Wrangler is offered in no fewer than nine different trim levels, with two-door and four-door (\"Unlimited\") body styles - all share the same V6 engine and four-wheel drive powertrain. The Sport models are the standard trim levels and Base models are called Sport. They arrive with a folding soft top, six-speaker audio system, cloth seats, and 16-inch steel wheels (the Unlimited Sport is fitted with air conditioning).

Rubicon models add a lot of off-road equipment, including unique suspension, special tires, locking differentials, and 17-inch alloy wheels. All Sahara models feature full metal doors, tinted rear windows, keyless entry, full power accessories, heated mirrors, unique trim, six-speaker audio system, and 18-inch alloy wheels. The 70th Anniversary models include unique paint and badging.

All Jeep Wrangler models are powered by a 3.8-liter, six-cylinder, rated at 202 horsepower. The standard transmission is a six-speed manual, with a four-speed automatic optional. Four-wheel drive is standard, but the Unlimited may be ordered in rear-wheel drive. The EPA rates the fuel economy of the 2011 Jeep Wrangler between 15 mpg city, and 19 mpg highway, depending on driveline.

The 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport starts with a base price of about $22,500 and tops out with the Unlimited Rubicon model, which starts around $33,000.

Jeep welcomes an all-new, completely redesigned flagship Grand Cherokee model for 2011The Patriot, Wrangler, and Wrangler Unlimited also receive a series of improvements for the new model yearHistoryThe Jeep brand originated more than fifty years ago, during World War II. The United States government was looking for an inexpensive and rugged off-road reconnaissance car, so they asked dozens of companies to submit bids. After a series of tests, the contract was awarded to Willys. The original "model MB" was soon nicknamed the "Jeep," and the name stuck. The company was bought by AMC in 1970, and then sold to its current owner, Chrysler, in 1998.
