A one-of-a-kind combination of open-air freedom, off-road capability and on-road refinement has brought Wrangler’s popularity to an all-time high, and additions for 2016 continued that trend.
For 2016 and hailing its name from the notorious Jeep trail in Telluride, Colorado, the Wrangler Black Bear Edition added special content to the exterior and interior of the best-selling Sport model for a distinctive on- and off-road look.
Originally introduced on the 2015 Wrangler, the Rubicon Hard Rock Edition carried forward the capability-enhancing features of the Rubicon model while including a nine-speaker Premium Alpine audio system and Low Gloss Black grille with High Gloss Black inserts.
In 2016, the Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition returned offering value to customers with unique exterior and interior appointments.
Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler – the popular and sought after model that saluted the earliest civilian Jeep vehicles with additional off-road hardware for increased capability – also returned for 2016.
The Wrangler has always had a unique variety of colours to choose from, and 2016 was no different. New exterior colours included Rhino Mojave Sand and Hypergreen. Additional colours for 2016 included: Billet Silver, Black, Bright White, Firecracker Red, Granite Crystal, Hydro Blue and Tank.
The 2016 Jeep Wrangler delivered unmatched off-road capability with legendary four-wheel drive and was produced with more than seven decades of 4x4 engineering experience. Wrangler continued to offer a body-on-frame design, front and rear five-link suspension system, live axles, electronic lockers, and is one of the few mid-size SUVs that offers a six-speed manual transmission, in addition to its five-speed automatic transmission.
The Jeep Wrangler is available with several axle gear ratios. The 2016 Wrangler is also available with 3.21, 3.73 or 4.10 ratios depending on model. Also, the Wrangler offers towing capability up to 3,500 pounds.
The Wrangler’s interior combines rich styling, versatility, comfort and intuitive feature use. Highlights include automatic temperature controls, heated premium leather seats, power mirrors and steering wheel controls for vehicle systems. Large rear windows are engineered for greater visibility. A USB port connects to the media center, 12-volt accessory outlets are located throughout the Wrangler and a 115-volt AC outlet is available to power select three-pronged home electronics.
Safety, Security, and Connectivity
The 2016 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited are available with an array of safety and security features. Standard electronic stability control (ESC), electronic roll mitigation, trailer-sway control, Hill-start Assist and brake traction control are among two dozen available safety and security features. Jeep safety systems are engineered to improve handling and accident avoidance while providing occupant protection, allowing Jeep Wrangler customers the ability to safely “go anywhere and do anything.”
