Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

If owning an SUV with a head-turning design and four-wheel drive is on top of your wish list, then the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited could be just the right vehicle for you. The overall design of the Wrangler hasn’t changed much since it first premiered many years ago. In addition, this SUV is one of the most off-road capable on the market thanks to its solid front and rear axles. While there are other vehicles with more extravagant interiors and newer entertainment options, few models can take you wherever you need to go like the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

In addition, the 2017 Wrangler Unlimited is available with new LED headlights and fog lights. If this doesn’t seem like many updates, that could be because a newer version of the Wrangler is expected to debut for the 2018 model year.

2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Exterior

The 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has become a favorite of celebrities in recent years thanks to its highly customizable nature. This model comes standard with a vinyl convertible top, but consumers looking for something more solid can opt for a hardtop roof. Additionally, the doors can be removed all together to provide a more powerful open-air experience. A few signature highlights of this vehicle include its famous seven-slot grille and unique fender flares. In addition, while the entry-level model comes with 16-inch steel wheels, going with higher-level trims will add aluminum alloys and LED lighting to this Jeep.

2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Performance

The 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is motivated by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine rated at 285 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. To go along with this motor, customers have the choice of either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain helps the Wrangler Unlimited accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just over eight seconds, which isn’t terrible when you consider its curb weight of nearly 4,500 pounds. In addition, the four-wheel drive Wrangler Unlimited can tow up to 3,500 pounds. That’s nearly double the towing capacity of the two-door Wrangler.

2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Efficiency

While the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited won’t come close to matching the Toyota Prius when it comes to fuel economy, this Jeep is still more efficient than other SUVS such as the Mercedes-Benz G-Glass or Toyota Sequoia. For the 2017 model year, the Wrangler Unlimited equipped with the manual transmission yields 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. In addition, the Wrangler Unlimited features a 22.5-gallon fuel tank. In contrast, the two-door Wrangler comes with a smaller 18.6-gallon fuel tank.

2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Safety

Each 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited comes standard with electronic stability control, hill start assist, and advanced multistage airbags. Furthermore, this SUV’s safety is aided by features like on and off-road four-wheel antilock brakes, as well as high-strength steel pillars that are designed to help protect against impacts and other stress. However, unlike many 2017 model year vehicles, the Wrangler Unlimited does not offer a rearview camera or any advanced crash prevention technology. Moreover, when the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety performed crash tests on the Wrangler Unlimited, it received marginal ratings in the whiplash protection and side-impact examinations.

Standard Safety Features

  • Advanced multistage front airbags
  • Electronic roll mitigation
  • Electronic stability control
  • Front passenger seatbelt alert
  • Hill Start Assist
  • Sentry Key® theft deterrent system
  • Speed control
  • Sport bar with full padding
  • Traction control
