Jeep Wrangler (Photo: Chrysler) 2013
Jeep Wrangler (Photo: Chrysler) A 6-speed manual should remain the standard transmission, making the Wrangler the most model to pair the Pentastar with a row-it-yourself gearbox. The old 4-speed automatic will be replaced with a 5-speed unit. With both transmissions, better fuel economy is expected. Other changes to the 2012 Wrangler include an optional Max Tow Package with a Class II hitch, while the 18-inch polished alloy wheels that were part of this year’s 70th Anniversary model will be offered as an option. Customers will now be able to order a body-colour hardtop with the Rubicon model, in addition to the Sahara which offers it in 2011, and body-colour fender flares can also be specified. We expect the 2012 Wrangler to arrive this fall.
