Features of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler
While the Jeep Wrangler has a design that has withstood the test of time, it has evolved to keep up with modern automotive industry trends. Taking a close look at the Wrangler’s exterior, you’ll find standard equipment, including underbody skid plates, front tow hooks, black fender flares, black side mirrors, black bumpers, 17-inch steel wheels, Dana 44 solid axles, and a zipperless soft top. The Wrangler’s interior is well-equipped with cloth upholstery, drain plugs for easy washout, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple/Android smartphone integration, push-button ignition, six speakers, and a 4.2-inch digital driver information display between analog gauges. Opting for a higher Wrangler trim level gets you additional features like LED lighting, body-color exterior features, alloy wheels, nine-speaker Alpine premium audio, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, navigation, and much more.
What Are the Engine Options for the 2023 Wrangler?
Looking under the hood of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler, you’ll find a 3.6-liter V6 engine as standard equipment. This six-cylinder engine delivers 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 cylinder engine is standard for the Sahara and High Altitude trims while optional for all other trims. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine lays down 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. This same engine is paired with two electric motors and a rechargeable electric vehicle battery to create the Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. The 4xe system gives the Wrangler the gas equivalent of 49 MPG, 375 horsepower, and an immediate 470 lb-ft of torque. The 4xe system is available for the Wrangler Sahara, Rubicon, and High Altitude trims. The last engine option for the Wrangler is the 392 cubic-inch 6.4L HEMI V8, exclusive to the Rubicon 392 trim. This gives drivers a thrill ride with 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Wrangler models equipped with the V6 engine come with a six-speed manual transmission, meanwhile, the turbocharged engine, 4xe models, and Rubicon 392 all come with the otherwise optional 8-speed automatic transmission.
2023 Jeep Wrangler 4×4 Systems
While the Wrangler’s design makes it iconic, its all-terrain capability makes it legendary. The Wrangler comes standard with 4×4, making it highly capable no matter which trim level you choose. Jeep’s Command-Trac 4×4 is standard equipment for the Wrangler. With Command-Trac, you can shift from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive on the fly at speeds up to 50 MPH. Once in four-lock, the system provides a 50/50 torque split, providing excellent traction on a wide range of terrain from snow to rugged rocky terrain. Selec-Trac is available for some Wrangler trims, giving drivers worry-free traction at all times without needing to pull a lever or push a button. Selec-Trac senses road conditions and automatically shifts the system between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive without any driver input. The Rubicon trim comes exclusively with Rock-Trac 4×4. Rock-Trac is another part-time system, putting drivers back in control of the drivetrain. However, the transfer case has a lower gear ratio, resulting in better control on extreme terrain.
