2015 Jeep Wrangler

New for 2015

The Jeep Wrangler received a number of equipment changes for the 2015 model year. An eight-speaker sound system and Torx tool kit allowing for the removal of the door and roof are now standard, Sport models offer 16-inch wheels and 21-inch Dueler tires, and the Freedom Edition is back (Jeep donates $250 to the United Service Organization for each one sold). Baja Yellow, Copper Brown, Firecracker Red, Sunset Orange, and Tank are all added as exterior color options.

Vehicle Overview

The Jeep Wrangler is the iconic two- or four-door SUV that defines the brand. In price, but the SUV is similar to the four-door Cherokee. The Wrangler offers some on-road comfort, but remains one of the most off-road capable SUVs around.

Summary

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler is powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 that makes 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, and gets paired to a five-speed automatic or a six-speed manual that drives all four wheels. The Rubicon model gets upgraded components that help it to be even more robust off-road, including a different transfer case and stronger axles. EPA-estimated fuel economy is 17/20 mpg (automatic) and 17/21 mpg (manual) city/highway.
A pair of four-wheel-drive systems are available, the standard Command-Trac, and an available Rock-Trac system (Rubicon and Rubicon Hard Rock models) that features a 4:1 low-range. A 73.1:1 crawl ratio with the manual transmission makes the manual-equipped models equally as capable. The two-door Wrangler can tow up-to 2,000 pounds and has an available trailer sway control system that activates automatically when needed. Four-door Wrangler Unlimited will pull up to 3,500 pounds, making it the go-to for those with harder to reach camping spots.
The 2015 Jeep Wrangler received a three-star rollover safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars). In IIHS testing the 2015 two-door Wrangler received one rating of good for the moderate front overlap category, two of marginal for small front overlap and head restraints and seats, and one of poor for the side impact category. The Wrangler Unlimited received the same rating of good for the moderate overlap front category, and two ratings of marginal for side and head restrains & seats; the highest possible rating is good.

What We Think

Accentuating the positives, while chipping away at the negatives, is the best way for Jeep to keep its signature product current, and yet still preserve its unique character.
The Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler special-edition model evokes the styling of the Jeep that started it all, and we like it. When we got out hands on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the Willys package we said, “Yes, it has evolved with the times -- our tester had Bluetooth, navigation, and keyless entry -- but the Jeep Wrangler is still at heart an old-school SUV that laughs at crossovers unable to ford the tiniest of streams.”
In an Editor’s Notebook of a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude Edition one editor said that “the only automotive products with more available aftermarket support than a Jeep Wrangler are the small block Chevy or Ford V-8 engines. Customizing a Wrangler was half the fun of owning one.”

Although fuel economy isn’t a major concern for your average Jeep Wrangler shopper, looming Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards mean that even the hot-selling off-roader needs to shape up. According to a report from Automotive News, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will use an eight-speed automatic transmission to improve fuel economy by at least nine percent.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne scared quite a few Jeep faithful last month when he suggested that the iconic Jeep Wrangler could adopt a unibody construction for its next generation, due in 2017. Automotive News has now debunked this rumor by confirming that the next Jeep Wrangler will remain a body-on-frame SUV.
