If you are shopping for a new Jeep® vehicle, chances are you are looking for a car that can deal with the harsh demands of daily life and also be ready to have fun with you. The 2017 Jeep® Wrangler boasts the ability to go off-road and tow what you need.
Off the beaten path
The 2017 Jeep® Wrangler is built for adventure in any season. Every trim level of this vehicle is equipped with advanced traction systems to take on snow, mud and sand. The Jeep® Wrangler is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine that achieves 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. That torque rating means that the vehicle has fine-tuned, low-speed crawling capability ideal for difficult off-road terrains.
If you need to navigate sharp turns on the trail or the road, the team at Jeep® worked hard to make the Wrangler very maneuverable. If by the water is your environment of choice, this vehicle also has features to take on water fording.* For the ultimate in off-roading, the Rubicon trim of the Jeep® Wrangler has 10 inches of ground clearance, a 42.2-degree approach angle, a 25.8-degree break-over angle and a 32.3 departure angle to help the vehicle climb over rocks and hills with ease.
Ready to tow
If you are a true adventurer, you likely have equipment that you like to bring with you on your excursions. Whether it’s a canoe, small trailer, snowmobile or other outdoor accessory, the Jeep® Wrangler is here to help you move it. The aforementioned 3.6-liter Pentastar® engine that comes standard in this vehicle can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. To make sure your cargo makes it to your destination safely, Jeep® has included Trailer Sway Control** as a standard safety feature. Not only is it standard, but it will turn on without input from the driver, allowing it to react to changing driving conditions swiftly.
If you are considering adding the Jeep® Wrangler to your garage, you can rest assured that this vehicle is more than capable of handling both your daily driving and your weekend excursions.
*Do not attempt water fording unless depth is known to be less than 30 inches. Traversing water can cause damage that may not be covered by the new vehicle warranty. Always off road responsibly in approved areas.
**Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Always wear your seatbelt and obey traffic laws.
