The 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is the perfect off-roading vehicle for those consumers that like to have a bit of extra space for their everyday lifestyle. With the bones of the Jeep Wrangler and an additional set of doors, this off-road vehicle is a terrific vehicle. After all, Four Wheeler magazine didn’t name the Wrangler Unlimited the “4×4 of the Decade” for no reason.

When it comes to ruggedness, there are few vehicles that can beat the Jeep Wrangler—and the 2016 Wrangler Unlimited is no exception. While the frame is longer to fit the second pair of doors, the Wrangler Unlimited still offers consumers the rugged good looks the popular Jeep is known for. Aggressive body lines and a boxy silhouette fill out the Wrangler Unlimited’s form, giving the SUV the character it is known for.

2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Interior Setup

2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Interior

Functionality is key in the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The off-roader doesn’t have the most luxurious interior (unless you go for the Rubicon trim level), but it is still comfortable for everyday driving. Metal-look “bright interior accents” help add a touch of class to the Wrangler Unlimited’s interior, while an available touchscreen gives consumers the technology they need. The four-door Unlimited offers more storage than the regular Wrangler with a useful 31.5 cubic feet. When the seatbacks are folded, it offers 70.6 cubic feet.
