“Kelley Blue Book’s expert editors drive and review nearly every new car on the road each year, so we have an abundance of knowledge that fuels our editorial awards and accolades, while our analysts evaluate tremendous amounts of data to help determine which vehicles make the cut for Kelley Blue Book’s awards,” said Matt DeLorenzo, senior managing editor for Kelley Blue Book. “Kelley Blue Book’s Most Awarded Car for 2019 is the Jeep Wrangler, a recently redesigned icon and perennial favorite that excels in many categories.”
The Wrangler is already the proud recipient of KBB’s titles including the “Best Resale Value and Best 5-Year Cost-to-Own.” It also secured a spot as one of the 10 Best SUVs Under $30,000.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler features a new 2.0-liter mild hybrid with eTorque technology as one of its powertrain options. The 4×4-equipped and Trail Rated model delivers impressive fuel efficiency, too.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler has also been recognized by the experts at MotorTrend, which honored it as the SUV of the Year for 2019.
