2010 Jeep Wrangler

(See our new 2011 Jeep Wrangler page) 2007 Jeep Wrangler RubiconTow hooks, fog lamps, full-length center console, front floor mats, and premium cloth trim were standard on all models. Front seatback map pockets were included with the standard cloth seats. Sahara and Rubicon could be ordered with leather-faced trim. Metallic green, orange pearl, detonator yellow were replaced by surf blue pearl, dark charcoal pearl, and natural green pearl. The Sunrider® soft top was made easier to remove; fuel saver indicator was standard; new 18 inch silver aluminum wheels were standard on Sahara; new “carbon” 17-inch aluminum wheels were standard on Rubicon. Bluetooth™ phone connection was included with navigation. Compass and outside temperature were standard on all models. The sun visors were larger and slide; the front dome lamp (with on/off switch) was new; two-tone leather was available on Sahara and Rubicon.

The Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler was “the Jeep.” In look and function a replica of the original Army Jeeps that helped to liberate so many people and nations in World War II, the Wrangler remains an icon, the one Jeep that all others derive their reputation from. Each new redesign is controversial because it is beloved and respected by so many, and woe unto those who would change it too far - for example, by adding a fully independent suspension or square headlights.

Fortunately, this time around, Jeep seemed to have really done it right. Off-road capability was increased with better ground clearance, larger wheels and tires (long demanded), enhanced Dana front and rear solid axles, available next-generation Command-Trac® and Rock-Trac™ transfer cases, new electric axle lockers, and an electronic disconnecting front sway bar that greatly increases wheel travel over rocks or other irregular surfaces. Meanwhile, on-road performance, always a problem for Wranglers, was improved with a 100% stiffer frame (in bending), a two inch longer wheelbase, 3 and a half inch wider track, lower spring rates, advanced shock tuning, and increased jounce and rebound travel.

The interior was larger, with 4.6 inches more hip and 5.1 inches more shoulder room combined with additional 2 inches in couple, 1 inch in rear-seat leg room and 2 inches behind rear seat. There were also more open-air options, with dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations; new three-piece modular hardtop and innovative Sunrider™ soft top. The ancient and beloved 190 horsepower straight-six was replaced with a new 3.8 liter V6 with 202 horsepower and 237 lb.-ft. of torque - and better gas mileage (17 city, 19 highway).

Safety was increased with Electronic Stability Program (ESP), electronic roll mitigation, dual-stage air bags, seat-mounted side air bags and Occupant Classification System (OCS), while convenience was heightened with available power windows and door locks, full-screen navigation system, and a 368-watt Alpine® stereo.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited page

Despite all these changes, the price of the Wrangler was actually falling to $18,765 for the base model, including destination charge. The Unlimited started at $20,410 (two-wheel drive; add $2,000 for four wheel drive) including destination.

Steve Kasher, who was present at the NAIAS introduction, wrote:

The new Wrangler may not be a surprise to most here but its character has been shift both in definition and status. Whereas the outgoing TJ, like the YJ before it, had a bit of jauntiness to it (the belt line sat fairly low) the new TK Wrangler takes a more primal look, made somewhat brutal in rock-crushing Rubicon trim. The specs on the new Wrangler are available elsewhere in Allpar, so I won't repeat. But the no-excuse disposition of the line seems to become even more so in this new version. It now impresses you with less crudity and more purpose, as if to tell competitors that this is and continues to be the ultimate hill climber.

Some disliked the new front with the slanting grille, but those people had not seen it in person; we had, and it looked just fine to us. If anything, the Wrangler, with the old-style round driving lights underneath the headlights, looked more traditional than any Wrangler made in the previous few decades.

The four door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Jeep started to make two separate types of Wranglers, (we expected to see associated vehicles such as pickups), with two different frame lengths (as it had done in the past) — one for two door and one for four door Wranglers. The two door Wrangler was shown in Detroit in 2006, the four door Wrangler Unlimited with very similar styling in New York in 2006.

The Jeep Wrangler Islander Edition

inside the Jeep IslanderAfter a hiatus of over 20 years, the Jeep Wrangler Islander re-appeared for 2010, as a limited production edition available for a $995 (MSRP) surcharge over the usual Wrangler Sport or Wrangler Unlimited Sport price.

The Islander was available for Sport models, on both Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited; it was available by special order only, requires the body to be Surf Blue (PQD).

Islanders were made in February 2010, with production reportedly in the hundreds rather than thousands.

In addition to standard Sport equipment, the Islander added the 32 inch wheel and tire group, with 17 inch aluminum painted black wheels and LT 225/75R17 mud-terrain T/A tires; tubular side steps; a unique decal; dark gray seats with surf blue inserts and blue logos stitched in; a leather-wrapped steering wheel with blue accent stitching; and rubber slush mats.

2007-2011 Jeep Wrangler details

jeep 4x4Offered in three models – Wrangler X, Sahara and Rubicon – the 2007 Jeep Wrangler was lean, rugged and simple, achieving best-in-class off-road capability while delivering a true open-air driving experience. With solid axles, removable doors, exposed hinges, a fold-down windshield and innovative removable and convertible tops, Jeep Wrangler maintained its uniqueness. With dozens of different top, door and windshield combinations, nine unique exterior colors and available 16-, 17-, or 18-inch wheels, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler also provided a customized appearance for a variety of customers.

From ground clearance to articulation to traction, Jeep engineers focused on more than 50 functional objectives during development of the 2007 Jeep Wrangler. The result was the ultimate “out-of-the-box” off-road vehicle with all the necessary features to “go anywhere and do anything.”

“Reengineered and redesigned from the ground up, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler was the most capable Wrangler in its 65-year history,” said Mike Donoughe, Vice President – Body-on-frame Product Team. “With more ground clearance, better wheel articulation and advanced off-road hardware, Jeep Wrangler is designed to tackle the toughest off-road obstacles.”

Improved ground clearance, combined with short front and rear overhangs, enabled the 2007 Jeep Wrangler to navigate the world’s most challenging off-road trails, especially severe inclines. A boulder-friendly approach angle of 44.3 degrees and breakover angle of 25.4 degrees, along with a 40.4 degree departure angle, once again made the 2007 Jeep Wrangler the most formidable off-roader. (Note: these appear to be Rubicon model measurements.)

Providing unmatched wheel articulation and durability, Jeep Wrangler X and Sahara models featured an enhanced Dana 30 front axle and Dana 35 rear axle. For the 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model – and optional with the trailer tow package on all models – heavy-duty front and rear axles were both Dana 44s, which featured numerous improvements. Providing significant underbody protection were three skid plates – protecting the fuel tank, transfer case and automatic transmission oil pan.

removeable top

For the first time, Jeep Wrangler offered an electronic-disconnecting front stabilizer bar – Active Sway Bar System (ASBS) – delivering additional wheel travel for traversing the toughest trails. As a result, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler boasted a 652 Ramp Travel Index (RTI — a measurement of a vehicle’s suspension articulation) with the front stabilizer bar engaged and an 832 RTI with the front stabilizer bar disconnected – a 28 percent increase.

Jeep Wrangler X and Sahara models featured the second-generation Command-Trac® NV241, part-time, two-speed transfer case, featuring a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. In addition, a Trac-Lok® limited-slip rear differential provided extra torque and grip during low-traction situations, such as driving over sand, gravel, snow or ice.

The 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model featured an Off-Road Rock-Trac™ NV241 two-speed transfer case with a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio, as well as electric front- and rear-axle lockers and 32-inch B.F. Goodrich Off-Road tires.

More On-road Refinement

2007 jeep wranglersWhile improving its 4x4 Jeep capability, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler offered enhanced on-road comfort due to an 100 percent stiffer frame in bending, 50 percent stiffer body, refined five-link coil suspension, improved shock tuning, 2-inch longer wheelbase and 3.5-inch wider track. In addition, new steering and suspension geometry provided precise ride and handling characteristics, and new sound-deadening techniques reduced cabin noise by more than 20 percent.

“The 2007 Jeep Wrangler reaches new levels of on-road ride, handling and refinement – an achievement realized while also boosting its off-road capability,” said Donoughe. “The new suspension enables the Wrangler to corner flatter with less lateral motion, provide better on-center steering feel, and even more effectively absorb on-road bumps and cracks.”

Ride balance in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler was more refined, achieving less body lean when cornering and braking. In addition, lower suspension spring rates provided a softer, more comfortable on-road ride. Standard on the 2007 Jeep Wrangler was an Electronic Stability Program (ESP), which aided the driver in maintaining vehicle directional stability in severe driving maneuvers on any type of surface. ESP featured three modes – “full on,” “full off” and “partial on.”

Standard on the 2007 Jeep Wrangler X, low-pressure twin-tube shock absorbers were tuned to provide improved balance between jounce and rebound motions, achieving an extremely responsive suspension. Jeep Wrangler Sahara and Rubicon models featured standard high-pressure monotube shocks, utilizing Low Speed Tunable (LST) valve technology.

The 2007 Jeep Wrangler’s new recirculating-ball steering configuration featured a robust cross-car steering linkage system, providing the stiffest possible steering linkage in a solid-axle vehicle, for a precise “rack-and-pinion” feel.

More Interior Space and Comfort

inside the jeep wranglerThe 2007 Jeep Wrangler’s interior was designed to offer new features and functionality, increase passenger comfort and improve ergonomics. The spacious interior was athletic and durable, featuring a new instrument panel and center stack, and new high-back front bucket seats.

Interior volume provided significantly more passenger space, versatility and cargo storage. Featuring a front-seat area with 54.6 cu. ft. of space – an increase of 4.8 cu. ft. – the 2007 Jeep Wrangler provided 5.1 inches more shoulder room and 4.6 inches more hip room.

New front seats were sculpted and conform to the body, and a driver’s seat height adjuster was available for optimized seat position and comfort. Jeep Wrangler Sahara and Rubicon models featured cloth seats with YES Essentials fabric – an easy-care, soil-repellant and anti-microbial textile that protects seats from stains, odors and discoloration.

Rear seats comfortably accommodated two adults with 3.9 inches more shoulder room, 1.6 inches more hip room, 1 inch more leg room and a 2-inch greater couple than the 2007 Jeep Wrangler’s predecessor. A fold-and-tumble feature allowed rear seats to be conveniently stowed for additional storage capacity.

Two more inches of space behind the rear seat nearly doubled the cargo capacity of the 2007 Jeep Wrangler. The extra space provided room for a new lockable underfloor storage area, which secured small items out of sight in the rear cargo area.

An all-new, three-piece modular hard top system featured three panels – left- and right-front passenger panels and a rear panel – providing more options for open-air driving in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler. Removing the left- and right-front passenger panels was simple and could be accomplished quickly by one person.

Also available in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler was the innovative Sunrider™ soft top, which included a “sun roof” feature in addition to the full top-down option. This soft top provided a second open-air option by folding the soft top back completely over the driver and front passenger to create a 52x30-inch sun roof opening — larger than any typical glass sun roof.

New, More Powerful Engine

A new 3.8-liter overhead valve V-6 engine was featured on all 2007 Jeep Wrangler models, replacing the 4.0-liter Power-Tech in-line six engine. With 205 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque, Jeep Wrangler came standard with a six-speed manual transmission or an available four-speed automatic transmission.

The 3.8-liter V-6 engine produced more horsepower and torque than its predecessor. Compared to the 4.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, the 3.8-liter was lighter and shorter, and maintained higher torque at speeds above 3400 rpm, allowing for an expanded operating range.

The 2007 Jeep Wrangler’s horsepower and torque, combined with an enhanced suspension, resulted in a towing capacity of 2,000 lbs. For the first time in a Jeep Wrangler, an optional towing package included Dana 44 axles with a 4.10 axle ratio and trailer hitch.

“Not Afraid to Get Dirty” Jeep Design

“The task of designing the 2007 Jeep Wrangler meant creating a modern design for one of the world’s greatest automotive icons,” said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President – Design. “The 2007 Jeep Wrangler design is rugged, yet simple, maintaining its heritage while also communicating a new level of capability and versatility. Improved quality, passenger comfort and, most importantly, off-road capability, are a direct result of Jeep Wrangler’s functional design.”

Wrangler-signature “must-have” features were refined, including classic round headlamps, a signature seven-slot grille, trapezoid wheel flares, exposed forged hinges, a fold-down windshield, sport bar, removable tops and doors, available full-framed or half doors, and hard and soft tops. The 2007 Jeep Wrangler was 5.5 inches wider overall, taking on a brawnier appearance. The body featured new sheet metal with a slight crown, providing a strong and robust presence.

More Stopping Power

New 16-inch four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes were standard on all 2007 Jeep Wrangler models. An off-road anti-lock-braking feature enabled sustained wheel lockup for improved performance on plowable surfaces, including loose dirt, gravel, sand and mud.

All 2007 Jeep Wrangler models incorporated larger wheels and tires than previous Wrangler models. Standard 16-inch wheels on the Wrangler X model and 17-inch wheels on the Wrangler Sahara and Rubicon models were new for 2007. In addition, 18-inch wheels – a Wrangler first – were optional on Wrangler Sahara.

More Safety and Security Features

seatsFollowing were available safety and security features in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler:

  • Advanced Multi-stage Air Bag System: This system inflated with a force appropriate to the severity of an impact. It included the occupant classification system (OCS)
  • Anti-lock-braking System: Electronic sensors helped detect impending wheel lockup. The ABS system offered improved steering control under extreme braking and/or slippery conditions
  • Brake Assist: The vehicle sensed a panic brake condition and applied maximum braking power, providing the shortest possible stopping distance
  • Child Seat Anchor System: Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) made it easier to install compatible aftermarket child seats in the rear seat
  • Energy-absorbing Steering Column: Manual-adjust collapsing steering column included two hydroformed coaxial tubes that moved relative to each other, which allowed the column to move forward and provided more energy absorption during an impact
  • Electronic Stability Program (ESP): ESP aided the driver in maintaining vehicle directional stability, providing oversteer and understeer control to maintain vehicle behavior on various road surfaces. This feature had three settings, allowing the driver more control over the vehicle during spirited driving
  • Electronic Roll Mitigation: A system that observed and monitored the vehicle roll attitude and lateral force to estimate the potential for a rollover situation. If necessary, the engine torque was reduced and a short burst of full braking was applied to the appropriate wheel to help stabilize the vehicle attitude and reduce the vehicle’s lateral force
  • Occupant Classification System (OCS): Measured conditions for activation or deactivation of the passenger-side front air bag based upon the weight of the occupant
  • Pretensioners: During an impact, the impact sensors initiated front seat belt pretensioners to immediately remove slack from seat belts, which reduced the forward movement of the occupant’s head and torso
  • Seat-mounted Side Air Bags: Available seat-mounted side air bags extended protection to driver and front passenger
  • Side-impact Door Beams: Door beams were made of high-strength steel mounted in the vehicle’s doors to help prevent passenger compartment intrusion

Worldwide Availability

The Jeep Wrangler was available with a 2.8 liter VM Motori diesel engine, as well as left- and right-hand-drive models; the engine was upgraded for 2011 models. Built at Chrysler Group’s Stickney Avenue Toledo Assembly Plant in Toledo, Ohio, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler arrived in Jeep dealerships in the fall of 2006.

2009 Jeep Wrangler changes

2009 Jeep Wrangler. Aside from color changes, the main alterations for 2009 were switching right-hand-drive postal-unit models from two doors to four doors; making hill-start assist standard on all models, with all transmissions; and including trailer sway control with the Trailer Tow Group. Welcome interior features were a larger sun visor, another bin for the full center console, new storage nets, and a center dome lamp with switched directional lighting. Small changes were made to the available option packages, including making the power group standard on Sahara and making Sunrider the standard on soft tops.

Our predictions were accurate!

We had written:

The ancient Jeep Wrangler will be redesigned in 2006-07, with a much-rumored extended-wheelbase four-door version coming as well; we don't expect the appearance to change much. Jeep Wranglers will cease production on July 21, 2006, according to the Toledo Blade's Julie McKinnon [thanks, Imperial4ever, for letting us know about it], and the new Toledo Jeep Assembly Plant will, within the week, start production of the new Wranglers. The two and four door versions will be started within five weeks of each other.

We'd expect the next generation Wrangler to have a wider body, better off-road capabilities, more electronic aids to off-roading, and live axles (oops, we've now been told “dual solid axles”). We suspect they will get an independent front suspension and safety enhancements. The extra width may be a way to gain anti-roll safety without the punishing ride of past Wranglers’ bound suspensions. The unique folding windshield and removable doors will remain, but a modular hardtop might be used instead of the expensive, troublesome fabric. As with other Jeeps, a new front stabilizer bar disconnection feature can add off-road ability without compromising on-road ride: by removing the stabilizer bar, the wheels can move farther independently of each other (you would not want to drive the Wrangler like this at anything resembling ordinary street speeds).

The Wrangler is expected to have the 3.7 liter V6 since DCX is intent on eliminating unnecessary engines and transmissions; though the 3.8 might also show up, since the 3.7 might be discarded entirely in favor of the 3.8 across the board (the 3.8 produces 205 hp). Dana has won the axle contract again. [It ended up with the 3.8]
