The Jeep Wrangler is the Porsche 911 of SUVs. Rugged, timeless, and authentic, it never seems to change but always gets better. Like the German sports car, the Jeep evolves slowly, while consistently staying ahead of its competition. And like the 911, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler is now more popular than ever.
Although Porsche has been making the 911 since the mid-1960s, the Wrangler’s roots date back to 1941. The first Jeeps were built for the military and were a critical component to the Allies' victory in WWII. The public began buying civilian Jeeps or CJs soon after the war, and seven generations later, it took the name Wrangler in 1987. The longer-wheelbase four-door Wrangler Unlimited joined the lineup in 2007, radically expanding the SUV’s appeal to include families and weekend off-road enthusiasts who appreciated its additional practicality and comfort. And last year, Jeep gave the rugged Wrangler an extensive makeover, adding more civility to the SUV while improving its legendary off-road capability.
