Published on Sep 19, 2016

What changes will make the 2017 Jeep Wrangler distinctive?

Everything – with the exception of a stone strong spotlight on finishing what has been started. 1 rough terrain reduced SUV. Wrangler's first full upgrade since model-year 2007 will likewise expect to enhance efficiency while keeping up an interesting picture that advances even to individuals who'll never wander from the asphalt. Measurements won't change much and two-entryway and more four-entryway Unlimited-adaptation body styling will return. So will body-on-casing building with strong axles front and back, a setup that is antiquated yet basic to Wrangler's tough character. New will be most parts under the sheetmetal, including the motor, transmission, and body. A pickup-truck form is likewise in progress.

Why would it be a good idea for me to sit tight for the 2017?

To get what may ostensibly be the most agreeable, yet able, Wrangler ever, also being among the first to possess the new pickup form. At the point when gossipy tidbits about the update surfaced, fans got to be anxious that Jeep-guardian Fiat Chrysler Automobiles would move far from the vehicle's opportunity tried outline and go 4x4 romping inclination. Taking into account late spy photography and other spilled goodies, they require not have stressed. Wrangler will keep on using its attempted and-trusted truck-sort assemble, shunning acculturating impacts like loop spring suspension or, paradise disallow, hybrid sort unibody development. It may, be that as it may, embrace some aluminum outline parts to abatement check weight and fuel utilization. Anticipate that the lineup will repeat base Sport, mid-level Sahara, and top-end Rubicon trim levels for all body styles. There will most likely be more than a couple of uncommon version models, yet precisely what they will be is impossible to say now. The pickup adaptation will probably be accessible in broadened and team taxi body styles, each with four customary entryways.

Unless you totally, emphatically should have one of the (numerous) "constrained release" 2016 Wranglers, we think it'll be ideal to sit tight for the new one. The overhauled model seems as though it will have numerous beneficial redesigns that will improve it a vehicle, both as an every day worker and as a weekend warrior.

2017 Jeep Wrangler Recalled

2017 Jeep Wrangler Recalled for Fuel Tank Issue

Nov 28, 2016




Approximately 448 Jeep Wranglers are affected by a new recall.

The American automaker has discovered a safety defect on the 2017 Jeep Wrangler, prompting a recall that will require a fuel tank inspection and possible replacement. The affected vehicles may have a fuel tank that was manufactured with a cracked or broken control valve, potentially allowing fuel to leak in the event of a rollover. The failure can also allow debris to enter the tank, or allow the tank to be overfilled.

The issue was first brought to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ (FCA) attention on November 3, prompting a quick investigation and the eventual recall. The inquiry traced the failures to loose tooling on one of two parallel weld lines at supplier Kautex Textron’s manufacturing facility.

To resolve the issue, dealerships will inspect the fuel tank breather tube to determine if the valve has been damaged. The fuel tank and sending unit will be replaced if necessary. Affected owners should be notified starting January 2, 2017.

2017 Wrangler Rubicon Recon

New 2017 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon Recon: Even More Off-road Capability

Increased 4x4 capability and protection from the most rugged terrain, courtesy of a front axle upgrade, enhanced off-road rock rails and heavy-duty cast differential covers

New 17-inch Low Gloss Granite Crystal-painted aluminum wheels, optional body color fender flares and unique red interior accents

Available in Jeep® showrooms later this month


February 6, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -



Already the most capable production vehicle in the world, Jeep® Wrangler is about to deliver even more capability – specifically more protection from the most severe, rugged off-road terrain – with the addition of the new Wrangler Rubicon Recon. Improved off-road prowess is a result of a stronger front axle, enhanced rock rails and heavy-duty cast differential covers.



“With an array of beefed up off-road components, the new Rubicon Recon provides even more legendary Jeep Wrangler capability,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global. “With unmatched capability and a unique appearance, Rubicon Recon is the perfect Wrangler for our most loyal, diehard off-road enthusiasts who love to tackle the most demanding trails.”



The new 2017 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition arrives in showrooms later this month at a U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $39,145 for the two-door model and $42,945 for the Wrangler Unlimited (four-door) model.



Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition
Based on the Wrangler Rubicon model, the Rubicon Recon Edition ups the off-road ante with a front axle upgrade that features strengthened tubes and heavy-duty end forgings, heavy-duty cast front and rear differential covers and enhanced off-road rock rails that are shortened to accommodate up to 35-inch tires. It is equipped with Wrangler’s part-time four-wheel-drive system that has electronic-locking front and rear Dana 44 axles with power being sent to each through a Rock-Trac transfer case with a “4-Low” ratio of 4:1. A 4.10 front and rear axle ratio is standard as are Tru-Lok locking differentials. With a six-speed manual transmission, the Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition has an impressive crawl ratio of 73.1:1 that makes climbing obstacles easy.

Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition is offered in seven colors: Black, Bright White, Billet Silver, Firecracker Red, Gobi, Rhino and Granite Crystal.

Wrangler Rubicon Recon Edition has many different features that make it distinctive, including a half-inch lift, new 17-inch Low Gloss Granite Crystal-painted aluminum wheels wrapped in 32-inch BF Goodrich KM off-road tires, optional body-color fender flares and a dual-vented Power Dome hood with a black-silhouette “Rubicon” decal on both sides.

A Low Gloss Black grille with Low Gloss Granite Crystal inserts and headlamp rings, Low Gloss Black off-road bumpers and Jeep badge with a red base give the Wrangler Rubicon Recon a toughened exterior look. The steel front bumper features a winch-capable design and removable end caps that help the Wrangler Rubicon Recon climb obstacles without any issues and reduce damage on the trail. Red tow hooks in front and back also provide the Rubicon Recon with added protection and help separate it from the rest of the Wrangler lineup.

Inside, the Wrangler Rubicon Recon comes standard with an eight-speaker audio system, black leather heated seats with a “Rubicon” embroidered logo and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with red accent stitching. Black vinyl-wrapped front door armrest and console lid with black stitching, red accent netting on front and rear door pockets and the center console, and red accent-colored seatbelts help to distinguish the Rubicon Recon from the rest of the Wrangler lineup. A dashboard plaque displays information regarding the front and rear axles, front sway bar, transfer case and tires. A Premium Sunrider soft top is standard while a body-color hard top is also available.

A unique gauge cluster features exclusive styling and also features a premium Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) with added read-outs, such as oil pressure, transmission and coolant temperatures, digital speed and individual tire pressure, which are helpful when out on the trail. The passenger grab handle features Midnight Star Black accents that are also found on the vent rings, steering wheel spokes and door pulls.

Final design touches include all-weather slush mats with a red accent “Jeep” logo and red accented axle locker and sway-bar disconnect switches. Jeep’s Connectivity Group, Power Convenience Group, Satellite Radio, remote starter and auto temperature control are also standard.

Jeep Wrangler
The iconic 2017 Jeep Wrangler – the most capable and recognized vehicle in the world – features a standard eight-speaker audio system and an optional Premium Alpine Audio Package that includes nine Alpine speakers, a subwoofer and a 552-watt amplifier. The 2017 Jeep Wrangler delivers unmatched off-road capability with legendary four-wheel drive and is produced with more than seven decades of 4x4 engineering experience. Wrangler continues 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 offer a six-speed manual transmission, in addition to its five-speed automatic.

For a third consecutive year, Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited earns lowest 5-Year Cost to Own Award in Mid-size SUV/Crossover category
2017 Dodge Grand Caravan earns 5-Year Cost to Own Award in minivan category for the third time in four years
Awards honor vehicles with the lowest projected ownership costs for the first five years of ownership


February 8, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com has named the 2017 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited and the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan winners of its 5-Year Cost to Own Awards.

For a third consecutive year, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has been named the winner of the lowest 5-Year Cost to Own award in the Mid-size SUV/Crossover category, while the Dodge Grand Caravan has earned the 5-Year Cost to Own award in the minivan segment for the third time in four years.

The 2017 5-Year Cost to Own Awards honor the vehicles and brands (luxury and non-luxury) with the lowest projected ownership costs, based on Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own data for new cars for the initial five-year ownership period.


“The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is in a class by itself in style, capabilities, ruggedness, and it is also a recognized leader in cost-to-own," said Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book and kbb.com. "With a design that channels the military Jeep vehicles of the 1940s and takes that to a modern level, the Wrangler Unlimited delivers on its promises that include high resale value and low ownership costs.

“When it comes to cost-effective people hauling, you can’t beat the Dodge Grand Caravan,” said Nerad. “Created by the company that invented the minivan, the Grand Caravan offers comfort, style and innovative features like Stow ‘n Go seating in a vehicle that tops the charts in five-year ownership costs.”

When considering its 5-Year Cost to Own Awards, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com takes into consideration depreciation, expected fuel costs, finance and insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees for all new models.
