We are all born to be good at something. Call it destiny, fate, or just pure contractual obligation, we are bound to discover a calling that beckons us to fulfill our predetermined potential. However, while everything and everyone on the face of this earth has a purpose to fulfill, there are also those among us who are created to excel at that purpose, and become a part of a special breed who are introduced into the light with excellence already boiling in their blood, ready to set a new benchmark for a certain greatness. Well, as you may have guessed, the Jeep Wrangler is one of those.
In the automotive world, some vehicles are natural-born game-changers — evolutionary specimens that fill the genome pool with waves, if you may — and in the world of off-roading, the Jeep Wrangler has been splashing its competitors in the face before they were even conceived. With the pedigree of its military granddaddies the Willys MB and the Jeep CJ in its veins, the Wrangler has established itself as the go-to vehicle for adventure, diligence, and trail-ready aptitude.
Now, as it crawls through the mud of the new century, the Wrangler is more advanced than ever, with new technologies and ranges filling up its bloodline, and although 2024 is still way ahead of us, Jeep have already unveiled what they have in store for Wrangler fans. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at why you’ll want to buy the 2024 Jeep Wrangler.
10 The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Has A New Design
Some vehicles are instantly recognized by their features, and the Jeep Wrangler is certainly one of them. Much in the vein of the Porsche 911, or the Mercedes G-Wagen, the Wrangler’s rugged, safari-ready look has become one of the most iconic car designs ever made, and an instantly recognizable constant throughout the ages.
Even though certain models have undergone facelifts and updates during its production run, the Wrangler has remained largely unchanged in terms of its aesthetic, but next year’s model is set to promise us something a little different. While the 2024 model will still look like the same Wrangler that we know and love, you may notice that the front grille has, in fact, become a touch more refined, with slightly slimmer dimensions and shorter but wider vent slots. Whether the Wrangler is one of those car models that are way overdue for a redesign is a question for the purists, but it is good to see that it will still retain its familiar face while keeping it fresh.
9 The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Has New Technology
The Wrangler’s adherence to its ‘old-school’ roots is one of the predominant factors that makes it so charming. Yet as times change and new frontiers announce themselves, it is essential for machines to keep up with contemporary advancements.
Looking to become another fine throwback stuffed with new technology, the 2024 Jeep Wrangler will undoubtedly maintain its ruggedness while embellishing it with new features. Having the 2021 Wrangler 4xe win the Hybrid Technology Solution of the Year Award, was just the beginning, with the 2024 model featuring even more refined PHEV technology that looks to improve economy, in addition to offering 21 miles of solely electric operation. The 4xe powertrain combines two, 400-volt battery pack-powered electric motors with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine to offer a competent, albeit fuel-efficient power source. In addition to that, the 2024 Wrangler 4xe variations will also feature an all-new Jeep 4xe Power Box, which has four 120-volt outlets that provide 30 amps of total output to charge all your other electrical amenities. So plug in.
8 The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Is An Off-Road Monster
Do we even need to go there? Well, when you’re in a Wrangler, you can pretty much go anywhere, so why not? The poster child for trailblazing adventures, you’d be hard-pressed to find better off-road vehicles that aren’t a Jeep Wrangler, and the 2024 model is looking to further consolidate that fact.
The 2024 Jeep Wrangler emphasizes its mythical back road capabilities by offering an unrivaled 100:1 crawl ratio, a full-float Dana rear axle, water fording of up to 34 inches, and four advanced 4×4 systems that include a variety of part-time and full-time transfer cases. If you still have any doubt that the 2024 Jeep Wrangler is a true off-road champion, it will also provide you with its new Trails Offroad software, which will include by-the-numbers guides of 62 Jeep Badge of Honor trails for you to explore; with the subscription to the service offering more than 3,000 additional routes to be unlocked in the future. Better pack your tent.
7 The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Offers A Wider Range Of Trims
It is always good to have options — after all, variety keeps us entertained. The Evolution of Jeep has always provided its customers with an interesting selection of Wrangler trims, with each offering their potential owner a character and purpose of its own. The entry-level Sport model (which is open to additional configurations) will offer you the full Jeep Wrangler experience at an affordable price level, while the Wrangler Willys pays homage to the veteran Willys MB Jeeps that were used by the military during WWII with extra ruggedness, and the addition of 35-inch mud-terrain tires, premium shocks, and Rubicon-level rock rails. The Sahara will offer you slightly more off-road intensity, with a full-time all-wheel-drive system and removable top and doors, while the patriotic Freedom will have you saluting the American flag every time you turn on the engine. The hard-top Altitude editions offer a slightly more sleek and elegant look to the Wrangler, with a touch of luxury that will be just as at home in the city as in the outback, while the Rubicon models are for the true adventurer in you, and are Jeep Wrangler’s ultimate, fully equipped trail-conquering machines.
In 2024, we will see Jeep add two more names to its line-up, with the Sport S 4xe becoming Wrangler’s most affordable hybrid option and the Rubicon X adding more grunt to the already formidable model with standard 35-inch tires and other incentives. There is plenty to choose from, but, in the end, it’s up to you to decide which Jeep Wrangler trim is right for you.
6 The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Offers A Great Selection Of Drivetrains
All that off-road prowess certainly doesn’t come easy. In order to adhere to its legendary pedigree, the 2024 Wrangler line-up boasts a selection of four dynamic power trains that are sure to get you across that hill and then some.
At the lower end of the spectrum, you have the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four, that provides 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. This may seem modest in comparison to the other offerings on the list, but is nonetheless more than adequate to help your Wrangler tackle the muddiest of trails. The inline-four also comes in a hybrid option, which sees the addition of an electric motor that will boost your power reserve up to 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, while increasing the efficiency from around 20 mpg to 49 mpg.
On the heavier side, models like the Jeep Wrangler Willys offer a 285 hp 3.6-liter V6 — which can also be equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, over the eight-speed automatic. While that may be more than sufficient for some adventurers, many will still crave something a bit more extreme, and thus go for the revered off-roader of the Jeep Wrangler family, the Rubicon. In this case, the Rubicon 392 comes with a scary 6.4-liter V8 that is capable of producing 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, ready to move the earth and bring down mountains.
5 The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Has An Updated Interior
Of course, when buying a Jeep Wrangler, you don’t necessarily consider comfort to be a priority. Nevertheless, even though your Wrangler will probably spend most of its time playing in the mud, it doesn’t mean that you have to get banged up as well. The 2024 Wrangler is indeed in line to get an all-new interior, which will look to add some modernity to the classic Jeep off-roader. Finished with new materials, the interior surfaces contrast the rough outdoors by being soft to the touch and brimming with quality, while an all-new 12.3-inch touchscreen display brings the Wrangler into the future, with a high-functioning Uconnect 5 multimedia system that covers all of your needs from basic navigation and phone connectivity, to the Trails Offroad app and Alexa-powered virtual assistance. All models also come with upgraded voice recognition technology, that is sure to be helpful when you have your hands full climbing the cliffs.
4 The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Has Phenomenal Engineering
The Wrangler doesn’t just get its superpowers out of thin air. All that ruggedness and trail-tackling proficiency is the product of time-honed, fine-tuned automotive engineering. Sitting on a top-notch five-link suspension, the 2024 Wrangler promises to be a fine driving experience both off and on-road, and with lighter than before construction — through use of high-strength aluminum closures — the 2024 model is also due to be more nimble and fuel-efficient. Furthermore, to protect its vital components from potential off-roading hazards, the 2024 Jeep Wrangler is equipped with four skid plates, which shield such intrinsic parts as the fuel tank, automatic transmission oil pan, and the transfer case. Rest assured, it’s built to tackle anything and everything.
3 The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Offers Extensive Customization
We all want to pave our own path, and with our own tools. While the Wrangler has a rather uniform look, what it offers is the opportunity to embellish it with touches of your own and create a Jeep that is right for you. The 2024 model will look to make that more possible than ever, offering an even broader selection of customizable options.
Starting with the warpaint, the 2024 Jeep Wrangler is set to arrive in 10 striking colorways – Firecracker Red, Sarge, Earl, Anvil, Granite Crystal, Silver Zynith, High Velocity, Hydro Blue, Bright White, and Black. In addition to the make-up, the 2024 model will also get some fresh shoes, with 10 new wheel designs that range from 17 to 20 inches in diameter and some righteous off-road tires (that range from 32 to 35 inches in size) to accompany them. As always, Jeep also includes extensive open-air options, featuring premium soft-tops, hard-tops, an exclusive Sky One-Touch power top, and dozens of other varied door and top combinations to fit your tastes and requirements.
2 The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Has A Model For Every Budget
If you want the best, you have to pay for it. As one of the best off-roaders of all time, the Wrangler has indeed earned a high price tag. Yet what makes the Wrangler so righteous, is that even though it is one of the best American cars on the market, it also appeals to a vast range of consumers, regardless of their budget. The base Sport model will start at around $35,000, and offer an array of extras to enable your 2024 Wrangler to give you more for less. Of course, things go northwards after that, with the priciest option on the list remaining to be the Rubicon 392, which will start at just upwards of $80,000. Whatever your price range, there is a Wrangler out there for you.
1 The 2024 Jeep Wrangler Is Safer
When you’re going on an adventure, you want to make sure that you return in one piece. While previous Wrangler models may have been more focused on the adrenaline-fuelled factors of expedition, the 2024 model sees Jeep enter a new era of safety. Featuring more than 85 available safety aspects, all Wrangler trims now come standard with first and second row curtain airbags, in addition to the front and side airbags on both driver and passenger sides. Furthermore, keeping up with some of the best safety features in cars today, the 2024 Jeep Wrangler will also provide driver aids, such as forward collision warning, advanced cruise control, and blind-spot and cross-path detection. Better safe than sorry.
