The 2012 Jeep Wrangler and 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited are American icons. With a lineage going back more than 70 years to World War II’s Willys MB Jeep, the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited maintain that go-anywhere, do-anything attitude today.
This year, Jeep made the two-door Wrangler and four-door Wrangler Unlimited more capable than ever. All-new for 2012 is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 which produces 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Also new this year is an optional five-speed automatic transmission, replacing the old four-speed unit. A six-speed manual transmission remains standard on all Wranglers.
The Wrangler wears its heritage with pride. It comes standard with four-wheel drive, round headlamps, and Jeep’s signature seven-slat grille. The Wrangler comes standard with a soft-top, and has a hardtop as an available option. The Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited are the only true convertible SUVs available today, not counting the question-nobody-asked Nissan Murano crossover convertible. The 2012 Jeep Wrangler in offered in three different trim levels: the base Sport, well-equipped Sahara, and rock-crawling Rubicon. Two special-edition Jeep Wranglers are available: the Wrangler Arctic, and Wrangler Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 edition.
