Exclamation 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon Named FOUR WHEELER "2019 SUV of the Year"

FOUR WHEELER judges evaluated new models from several manufacturers to determine the Jeep Wrangler as "2019 SUV of the Year"

January 7, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

The 2019 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon – the most capable SUV ever – has been named FOUR WHEELER "2019 SUV of the Year." The award is given annually by the editors of the opinion-leading off-road enthusiast publication.

“The Wrangler Rubicon is packed full of innovation and technology, fully modernizing the Jeep experience, yet capability, comfort and user-friendliness have only been improved upon,” said Sean Holman, Group Content Director for FOUR WHEELER. “This is one of those rare instances where a company got something so right, you can have your cake and eat it, too. It is a truly modern interpretation of the Wrangler without any dilution to the formula of what a Jeep should be."

Over the course of a week, FOUR WHEELER’s judges conducted a variety of tests spanning more than 1,000 miles of terrain that included pavement, gravel, dirt, sand, rocks, mud and snow at elevations ranging from sea level to more than 9,000 feet. During the off-road portion of testing, judges evaluated visibility from the driver seat, four-wheel-drive system selection and performance, tire performance and durability, engine power and cooling, transmission function and cooling, suspension tuning and performance and traction control system function. Judges spent time on the road evaluating driving characteristics, such as handling, ride quality, interior comfort and steering feel. Other factors also taken into consideration include price, fuel efficiency, tire size and ramp travel index (RTI), which tests suspension articulation.

“Our all-new Jeep Wrangler has been improved in every way, and we are thrilled the FOUR WHEELER editors have honored the pillar of our brand with this important award,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Jeep Brand – North America. “Jeep Wrangler is the original SUV and has long been the most capable vehicle on the planet. This new Wrangler is completely refined, with more fuel-efficient powertrains, dramatically improved on-road driving dynamics, and an array of advanced technology, connectivity and safety features that make it a pleasure to drive every day – on the road or trail.”

Jeep Wrangler U.S. sales increased 26 percent in 2018, to an all-time record of 240,032 units.
