2011 Jeep Wrangler Overview
For the ultimate in off-roading capability, the classic yet modern 2011 Jeep Wrangler is second to none.
Under the iconic hood, which has looked about the same for the better part of a century, is a 202-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6, which is mated to a four-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission. This pairing is good for 16 mpg in the city and 19 on the highway. Mileage is comparable the Nissan Xterra and Toyota FJ Cruiser.
Three models are available to Wrangler buyers: Sport, Rubicon and Sahara. With all the open space on the upper half of the Wrangler, it is hard to fully separate the inside from the outside. Headroom is infinite when the easy-to-remove Sunrider® top is off, and so is shoulder room with the windows down.
The four-wheel drive system on the 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport and Sahara models features a low-high transfer case, Dana front and rear solid axles, and an available limited slip rear differential. On the Rubicon, named for the famed off-road Rubicon trail (where you almost exclusively find Jeep Wranglers) there are electric front- and rear-axle lockers and an electronic sway bar disconnect feature, while the limited slip rear differential becomes standard fare.
Fog lamps and tow hooks are standard, while tube-style running boards are available. The interior has been refreshed for 2011 with a redesigned instrument cluster and center stack, which places the controls towards the top of the dash for easier access. Fun goodies such as a CD player, an upgraded Infinity audio system, and Sirius Satellite Radio can be added for your cruising pleasure. New two-tone leather is available on the Sahara and Rubicon models. The available Uconnect system enhances the Wrangler’s technology offerings with a hard drive to store and play music, and can also serve as a Wi-Fi hotspot to connect your phone and wireless electronics to the Internet. A new USB interface can accommodate thumb drives and MP3 players, while Bluetooth® streaming audio is also new.
Safety is another challenge the 2011 Jeep Wrangler tackles with aplomb, thanks to dual front and optional front-side airbags. Four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, and stability control help ensure the Wrangler only ends up off road when the driver directs it there.
