The Jeep Wrangler is already among us, the most traditional of all-terrain that in this new generation will be sold with a two-door body, and Sport finish.
The Jeep Wrangler JL arrives at the Colombian showcases imported from the United States. Its production is carried out at the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles plant in Toledo, State of Ohio.
The aesthetic section of the Jeep Wrangler JL is defined by a single word: Conservative. Maintaining its traditional style, it shows larger headlights on the front, a slightly inclined blind with seven thicker stripes, and a bulky and more modern bumper that also includes exploratory lights.
On the other hand, small air vents are visible on the sides of the fenders, and extended wheel arches in black plastic. They are wide enough to house 17-inch alloy wheels in aluminum, and in graphite color. And behind, it continues with the square optical characteristics, the spare wheel located in the gate, and the latter arranged for lateral opening.
It incorporates as standard the hard ceiling in black color, with the possibility of being practicable. That is, the part located on the area corresponding to the front passengers. This makes it entirely possible for total and effective removal.
Interior Comfort Of Jeep Wrangler
Entering the cabin of the Jeep Wrangler JL, a great improvement in perceived quality is evident. The seats are in black fabric with high resistance. Additionally, the handle in front of the front passenger is of a material similar to neoprene, which adheres to the hands.
For its part, the instrument panel includes a seven-inch TFT screen that reflects the vital information of the vehicle, coming from the on-board computer. A multimedia center with a seven-inch touch screen had installation at the top of the center console. From that, the Uconnect 4 interface became compatible with Apple CarPlay, and manipulation became possible for Android Auto .
Mechanical Aspects Of Jeep Wrangler
In its configuration for Colombia, the Jeep Wrangler JL carries the classic 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, with 24 valves, with a VVT variation system and Start-Stop (ESS) system. It produces a maximum power of 285 horses at 6,400 rpm and torque of 362 Nm at 4,800 rpm Additionally, this couples with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
It incorporates the Command-Track double traction system, which uses a transfer case (‘mocha’ according to popular slang). This sends the torque evenly to the front and rear axle. Their usage is appropriate as long as it circulates at a speed of up to 45 km / h
The complement is through the limited Track-Lok rear sliding differential. This actually improves grip in situations of low grip or slippery terrain.
Moreover, this carries third-generation Dana axles, solid type forward and heavy-duty rear (Dana 44). On the other hand, the suspension is independent with five arms, rigid axle, and helical springs. Additionally, the steering uses electrohydraulic assistance.
The brakes have ventilate disc in front (330 mm) and solid disc on the back (328 mm). Moreover, the anti-lock system (ABS) and electronic brake distribution (EBD) appeals to everyone.
