2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Exterior

2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Overview (See Available Styles)

A sibling to the two-door Wrangler, the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited takes off-roading to a higher capacity with four-doors and seating for up to five passengers.

Just like the normal Wrangler, from the moment it rolls off the lot the Wrangler Unlimited is ready for whatever you can throw at it. So whether there are boulders to climb or streams to ford, the trail-rated Wrangler Unlimited is up to the task. For 2012, the rugged Wrangler Unlimited gets a new engine and automatic transmission, so now under the hood of every Wrangler Unlimited you’ll find a 285-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 that outputs 260 pounds-feet of torque that represents an 83-horsepower improvement over last year’s model. Transmission options include a standard six-speed manual and an optional five-speed automatic, also new, which improves both on- and off-road performance.

The 2012 Wrangler Unlimited also comes with a slew of off-road features, such as standard four-wheel drive and a non-independent suspension. Further trail-beating options include dual locking differentials and electronically disconnecting front stabilizer bar.

Fuel economy ratings come in at 16 mpg in the city and 20-21 mpg on the highway.

Inside, the Wrangler Unlimited offers more seating and more cargo space than the smaller Wrangler (46.4 vs. 17.2 cubic feet). The interior of the Wrangler Unlimited is more functional than comfortable; standard features include cloth seating, a CD stereo with auxiliary audio input, and steering wheel mounted audio controls. If you’re looking to spruce up the interior, choose from options like two-tone leather seating, heated front seats, air conditioning, and a navigation system.

Standard safety features found on the 2012 Wrangler Unlimited include antilock brakes, traction control, and an electronic stability system that comes with Chrysler’s rollover mitigation technology.

The 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited remains one of the most capable vehicles on the road today and this year’s edition, with more power and a new transmission, only reinforces that truth.
