2018 Jeep Wrangler JK
Are you looking for a bit of adventure in the Somerset and New Bedford areas? There’s plenty to do in town, of course, but sometimes you need to venture off the beaten path a bit. That alone presents serious obstacles, however, so you need to make sure you have a vehicle that can handle the rough terrain.
When it comes to off-roading capability, Jeep reigns supreme, and there’s no Jeep more iconic than the Wrangler JK. This incredible off-roading machine has a lot to offer all kinds of drivers, but is it good enough to meet your high standards? Find out with our detailed 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Review.
You can safely assume that the Wrangler JK can perform off-road, but the sheer extent of its off-roading features may surprise you. Every version of this vehicle sports the Trail Rated badge meaning it passed a series of grueling off-road tests proving its capability. This is apparent with its multitude of off-road features.
With a 73.1:1 crawl ratio and generous articulation, you can always count on reliable traction even when on rocky surfaces. The 30 inches of water fording allows you to pass through bodies of water that would normally be a dead end, and the 34.6-foot turning diameter makes it more maneuverable than ever.
Engine and Drivetrain
No matter which Wrangler JK you opt for, you’ll be able to enjoy the powerful 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine. Surprisingly efficient with an EPA-estimated 17 MPG city and 21 MPG highway, this engine boasts an impressive 285 horsepower with 260 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough power to get you through the mud, rocks, snow, and pretty much anything else.
The 4×4 systems will turn you into an off-roading expert in no time. Both the Command-Trac® and Rock-Trac® systems offer impressive power and performance to augment the raw horsepower from your engine. With these systems, you can always be sure each wheel is getting the appropriate amount of power.
Rugged Yet Refined
Inside the Wrangler JK, you’ll find an interior reminiscent of luxury on the road vehicles, yet it has everything you need for adventure. The premium cloth seats are comfortable by default, but you can upgrade them to leather if you want. You can even get heated front seats for that extra level of comfort during those cold days.
One of the most useful aspects of the interior of the Wrangler JK is that it’s completely washable. You can bring the hose in and wash up without having to worry about damaging anything. With lockable storage bins and ample cargo space, you can pack everything you need for your next adventure.
