Its design features and incorporation of modern technology have attracted more fan base while the original go-anywhere, do-anything, rugged no-frills ethos keeps Jeep-purists glued to it. The Wrangler has undoubtedly proved to be a legendary four-wheel machine brand in the United States. With various unique trim levels to choose from, there is certainly a Jeep Wrangler that will fit your desires. We have compiled a list of various trim levels and their features, making it easy for you to choose your ideal Wrangler.
1. Wrangler Sport
The Wrangler Sport is the base Wrangler trim, and it comes in two models; a two-door and a four-door model. The full-metal doors require no skill to remove them. Underbody skid plates, 16-inch steel wheels outfitted with standard tires and rigid axle features make this Wrangler a champ at off-road driving. Other exterior features include LED head- and fog lamps, manual mirrors and locks.
A look at the interior features, it goes without saying it was built for comfort. With features such as cloth seats, reclining front seats, adjustable head restraint, and an easy-to-access passenger seat top that with a sound system consisting of eight speakers, the passengers are sure to enjoy the ride! The cargo area, of this Wrangler, is covered with a mat and it offers tie-down loops.
A powerful V6 engine with a fuel capacity of 4.0 liters and producing 285hp power is employed. This engine, with a six-speed transmission system, provides swift acceleration, especially in the two-door model. Using the six-speed manual transmission system with the easy-to-modulate clutch and long shifter stick ensures more excitement and novelty. However, buyers who do not like the manual transmission can opt for the 5-speed automatic transmission system Wrangler.
The Willys wheeler which is named after the original iconic Jeep is a special edition to the Wrangler sport. It adds more features to the base trim and also tries to live up to the original Willy. Features include a solid rear axle with Trac-Lok differentials, tinted windows, knobby off-road tires, and 17- inch high-gloss black wheels.

Heated power mirrors, windows, and locks, auto-dimming mirror, keyless entry, and security alarm system are but a few remarkable features. The door and rooftop are easy to remove and the procedure used is not complicated.
Its unique large body with painted panels and road noise control makes it outclass most SUV on the road. Having both solid front and back axles, a body firmly bolted on its frame and 18-inch alloy wheels; the Sahara asserts that it is here to bring back the unique feeling of driving a large truck.

For those seeking the ultimate Wrangler then the Rubicon is your best bet. The vehicle exudes both excitement and tackle-anything capability.
With features such as rugged front bumper and 17-inch wheels under wide flared guards, this SUV is one built for toughness. LED reflector headlamps and inbuilt hood insulation are optional features that were left out in power and performance upgrades.
