It only takes a glance to know that the Jeep Wrangler is ready to tackle any terrain. After all, this is one of Jeep’s Trail Rated vehicles, indicating that it can handle mud, snow, sand, streams, and more. While the Wrangler performs well when driving through Daphne, it is one of the best possible options if you want an SUV that can go off-road with ease and keep you comfortable while doing so. Here are just a handful of the features that help the Jeep Wrangler excel off the road.
Plenty of Power in the Wrangler
Power and torque are both essential to off-roading since the engine needs enough force to propel the SUV over rocks and other obstacles. The Wrangler has a truly powerful 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. It delivers 285 horsepower along with 260 pound-feet of torque, something that enhances your low-speed crawling capabilities. Of course, the engine also delivers efficiency with 21 mpg* on the highway.
Wrangler 4×4 Systems
Instead of just giving drivers a 4×4 system, the Jeep Wrangler lets you choose from two, each of which is perfect for conquering any terrain. The Command-Trac NV241 4×4 system sends equal power to every corner of your vehicle. On the other hand, the Rock-Trac 4×4 System has the best-in-class off-road performance along with a 4:1 low-gear ratio, perfect for crawling at low speeds while increasing torque at your wheels.
Jeep’s Dana 44 Front Axle
Depending on the Wrangler trim you choose, you will get a high-pinion Dana 44 heavy-duty front axle that gives you quiet, smooth operation by reducing the joint angles of the driveshaft. It also enhances ground clearance to get you over obstacles. Some models also have a similar rear axle. These axles feature Tru-Lok locking differentials to maximize traction.
Sway Bar Disconnect of the Wrangler
The Wrangler Rubicon has a sway bar disconnect that lets you disengage your front sway bar automatically if you are driving under speeds of 18 mph and are in 4LO mode. This lets your front wheels drop so they can compress 29 percent more.
Now that you know why the Jeep Wrangler is able to conquer any terrain, it is time to put it to the test. Visit Chris Myers CJDR to start driving your own Wrangler around Daphne, Alabama.
