Meet the Jeep Wrangler 2019

Unveiled at the Los Angeles Motor Show at the end of 2017, the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler promised high doses of personalization and eagerness to make the beast. And it has fulfilled. The 4×4 has improved keeping its essence of classic off-road and with Easter eggs that remember its 77 years of history.In Europe, the sales of the new Jeep Wrangler will begin in September, and although there are no closed prices, it will probably start at 46,000 euros. It will be available initially in the Old Continent with only the 2.2-liter Multijet II diesel engine. And to check the improvements, we went to get dirty until the Camp Jeep in Spielberg, Austria, with the new Wrangler finished Sport and Rubicon, and we have had a very, very good time. For protection of your jeep buy car cover for riviera.

Jeep demonstrates in the paper that it is a cornerstone in FCA

Line Up 5

FCA is immersed in an impás. With the CEO, Sergio Marchionne, about to retire and rumors of all kinds of meetings with Chinese giants interested in buying the Detroit giant, the firm finalizes a plan to consolidate .FCA will stop being a generalist group to become a car group with specialized brands, limiting or letting die generalist brands. Jeep, Ram, Alfa Romeo and Maserati (these last two in the spotlight) represent the most important part of income and benefits, especially Jeep, which brings together 70% of the group’s income.Currently the Jeep are manufactured in 10 factories spread over six countries, and the new Jeep product plan for 2018-2022 implies that the brand is present in all segments of the market with an SUV and / or an SUV, including versions electrified (10 PHEV and 4 100% electric models in 2022). That means moving from the six models that currently make up the Jeep range to 11 models.In fact, during the presentation of the new Wrangler in Austria, they confirmed that there will be a hybrid plug-in Jeep for 2020 .As for sales, the Marchionne jewel off-road has experienced a bestial growth. Sales have multiplied sixfold since 2010 and only five million units have been sold from the Jeep Wrangler . In the Spanish market, they are also good news. In June it achieved a total of 1,637 units (+95.8%), while in the period from January to June it already exceeds 7,000 units: 7,717 (+ 83.3%).

Renewed appearance with a classic smell

The fourth generation of the Wrangler retains the essence of the Willis to such an extent that we find it in small details scattered throughout the car. Round headlights, seven-slot vertical grille of the original Jeep CJ5, trapezoidal wheel arches, folding windshield up to the roll bar, removable doors … it is an all-rounder created to play.In fact, there is an organizer of screws and bolts in the lower part of the trunk, to store the screws individually, and a set of tools with instructions inside the central armrest.The upper part of the cascade-shaped grille has been tilted to improve aerodynamics and in the Sahara and Rubicon versions the headlamps and optional anti-fog LED lights have a clear white light. In the rear, the traditional square pilots have optional LED lighting.The fourth generation of the Jeep Wrangler is offered in three different levels of equipment: Sport, Sahara and Rubicon, all available in two or four-door configuration.The new top bar now connects the A-pillars and stays in place even when the windshield is down, allowing the rear-view mirror to remain in place when the windshield has been folded.Following with the aesthetic changes, now the doors of aluminum of high resistance count on a system Torx stamped directly in the hinge to be able to remove them without too much effort.As for the possibilities with the roof, the Wrangler has updated the two configurations previously available: the new soft roof ‘Zipperless Premium Sunrider’ and the ‘Freedom Top’ lighter; a removable rigid roof of three panels that can be stored in the trunk without much effort, as we found.The roof takes 20 seconds to open when you hold the button on the rear view mirror. A good option to move around the countryside, but not recommended on the highway; even with the windows up, a very annoying air bubble forms inside.Jeep 4×4 capacity to get anywhere

Rubicon Short Wheelbase 20

The new Wrangler has two four-wheel drive systems available : Command-Trac, in the Sport and Sahara equipment levels, and Rock-Trac, standard in the Rubicon trim configuration. Both systems have a new two-speed transfer case Selec-Trac permanently active to control and manage the torque sent to the front and rear wheels.In particular, the Command-Trac four-wheel drive system has a two-speed transfer case with a gear ratio of 2.72: 1, latest generation Dana front and rear axles with rear axle ratio. 3.45 for the gasoline version and 3.73 for the diesel versions.It also includes the technology ‘shift on the fly’, which allows to change on the fly between the traction at two and four wheel drive up to a speed of 72 km / h.The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon models are equipped with the 4×4 Rock-Trac system, with a two-speed transfer case with a 4.0: 1 gear ratio, front and rear Dana 44 Heavy-duty front axle and electric lock. Tru-Lok of the front and rear axles.The Rubicon also offer an articulation and a total travel of the additional suspension with the help of the electronic disconnection of the stabilizer bar at the push of a button.Classic interiors but very complete

Interiors Close Up 13

The interiors of Jeep are not characterized by high technological levels, but very complete. Both in the front and rear seats there are many holes to ‘throw’ electronic devices, mesh pockets that extend along all doors and cup holders.The center console, which houses the shift lever, the transfer case and the parking brake, has been redesigned, providing the detail of the Willis logo not only on the gear lever, but on the front window, printed on the mat. rear and even on the tires as a tribute to the classic World War II.The instrument panel features a 3.5 or 7 inch LED display; the latter is offered as standard in the Sahara and Rubicon versions. The integrated buttons on the steering wheel (eye, heatable) control the audio, voice and speed functions.The center console also has a 7.0-inch or optional 8.4-inch touch screen, both with Android Auto and Apple Car Play connectivity ; the latter is the largest and most advanced UconnectTM screen ever offered on a Wrangler.On the other hand, two USB ports in front and two within reach of the rear seat occupants are connected to the multimedia center. The 12-volt accessory sockets as standard are found throughout the passenger compartment and a 230-volt outlet is also available.The glove compartment is now cushioned and, like the center console, can be locked to protect valuables when the roof is open.New engines and changes for the new Wrangler: in Europe only four cylinders and automatic transmissionThe latest generation of the off-road icon will be offered in Europe, at the moment, with 2.2-liter four-cylinder turbocharged Multijet II diesel options .Customers in the Middle East, Russia and Africa will be offered the most powerful 3.6-liter V6 option with 280 PS (284 PS) and 255 lb-ft (347 Nm). All power trains come with an eight-speed automatic transmission as standard.The new 2.2-liter MultiJet II turbo diesel engine comes with second generation MultiJet technology; it has four valves per cylinder, double overhead camshaft driven by a belt, 2000 bar common rail injection system, Combined with a new eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine develops 200 hp at 3500 rpm and a torque of 450 Nm at 2000 rpm.The Wrangler also comes with a new gasoline engine , but in Europe it will not land until the end of the year. It develops 272 HP at 5250 rpm and 400 Nm of torque at 3000 rpm and has Start-Stop. This engine, in combination with the new eight-speed automatic transmission, is part of the Global Medium Engine family of architecture and features double overhead camshafts, dual independent distribution of the camshaft and exhaust gas recirculation system cooled.Our adventure with the new Wrangler began in Graz, a beautiful city in southern Austria that houses the Red Bull Ring and the Jeep test field to push the mythical SUVs to the limit. Before getting into the job, we were able to test the Sahara 4-door 2.2-liter ATX 4WD diesel engine on Austrian roads.With an automatic transmission of 8 speeds and a maximum speed of 180 km / h, the Sahira demonstrates in the asphalt that is not its natural environment. The electronic address is not the best to drive carelessly by road, it requires constant control of the steering wheel; On the other hand, the left foot does not finish finding its place and ends up dancing.However, it is a very comfortable vehicle to travel, let alone the visibility that is enjoyed with almost two meters high; the seats are comfortable and the soundproofing is quite acceptable. Along a route of around four hours, the average consumption stood at 9.5 liters.Despite its more than two tons, driving is very easy and responds well to a good acceleration.After the urban journey, I had to try it in its natural habitat. Nestled in the middle of a nature reserve (with the environmental impact that entails), the Camp Jeep houses a collection of the most mythical models of the firm; from the Willis of 1945 to the Wrangler TJ Sahara of 1998, going through Wrangler YJ of 1991.
