There’s a reason why Jeeps have such a culture around them. These vehicles offer so much in the way of an active or adventurous lifestyle. The 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara shows almost everything that you can get with the 2020 Jeep Wrangler. The interior is utilitarian for the most part but gives you features you’d expect in a 2020 model. This particular 2020 Wrangler in the video offers the new EcoDiesel made in Italy. It’s FCA’s brand new diesel V6 that fits very well with this Wrangler and the new 8-speed transmission specifically made for it.
The Following by the Edmunds Experts:
Crossovers utilize a car-like unibody construction that reduces weight and greatly improves handling and road comfort. However, this comes at the cost of ruggedness and off-road performance. For buyers enamored with the idea of a go-anywhere and do-anything SUV, the shopping process can pretty much start and stop with the 2020 Jeep Wrangler.
The Wrangler has long been the darling of off-road enthusiasts thanks to its rugged design and considerable aftermarket support. Jeep even offers the popular off-road-focused Rubicon trim level that comes straight from the factory with features such as big all-terrain tires, lockable differentials and a front electronically disconnecting stabilizer bar.
This latest generation JL Wrangler is appealing in other ways besides just rock-crawling ability. Though it employs traditional body-on-frame construction, the Wrangler is still perfectly livable even if you never venture off pavement. The seats are supportive, the driving position is comfortable, and the cabin materials are substantially nicer than in previous-generation Wranglers. Finally, there’s the Wrangler’s iconic style and removable top, which no other SUV can match.
Certainly, the Wrangler isn’t for everyone. It’s noiser, stiffer-riding and less utilitarian than other similarly priced crossovers and SUVs. But if you want capability and personality, the Jeep Wrangler is the best there is.
