Command the Trail in the 2016 Wrangler

When you think of the all-American SUV, the Jeep Wrangler is bound to make the short list. No trail is too tough, and with so many ways to configure the exterior, you’re bound to stand out from the crowd. Better yet, with tons of exciting features, every drive is better than the next. To get your hands on the 2016 Jeep Wrangler for sale visit Dick Scott Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Plymouth or Dick Scott Motor Mall in Fowlerville.

The 2016 Jeep Wrangler is Trail Rated® tough, and that is made clear once you have a seat inside. Start the engine, and the Pentastar® V6 powertrain kicks to life as it produces best-in-class 285 horsepower, as well as 260 lb.-ft. of torque. It not only has a powerful performance, it’s efficient too with a fuel rating of 17/21 MPG city/hwy. The Wrangler can be paired with one of two 4×4 systems. Your first option is the Command-Trac® 4×4 system, perfect for four-wheel off-roading power. With equal power to all four wheels, you’ll have best-in-class winter performance, which is sure to come in handy when I-275 is coated with snow. When you choose the Rock-Trac® 4×4 system you’ll have best-in-class off-road performance with a 4:1 low-gear ratio, so you can crawl at lower speeds. And to ensure safe trail exploring, the Wrangler has Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist.

There’s no denying that the 2016 Jeep Wrangler is one of the most noticeable vehicles out on the road today – which is pretty impressive when you take into consideration how many ways the exterior can be configured. For instance, remove the tops and doors for a more open-air feel, and even choose from one of the four options for the top: no top, soft top, Freedom Top® hardtop, and color top. Other exciting exterior features include the full-size spare tire, fog lamps and heated power side mirrors for visibility no matter the weather, and available side steps for easy entry and exit.

Have a seat inside, and you’ll quickly realize this isn’t your average SUV. In fact, the 2016 Wrangler has the most comfortable interior in its class. Choose upholstery in premium sedosa cloth or available McKinley leather trim to support you on your daily commute, and with available heated front seats, the long winter months won’t seem so bad. When you’re loading all your camp gear inside, take advantage of the fold-and-tumble seats. Leave them in place for 12.8 cubic ft. of cargo space, or fold them flat for 56.5 cubic ft. of storage room. And if you bring a little dirt from the camp site with you on the way home, the Wrangler is standard with a durable and washable interior that features drain plugs for easy cleaning.

Depending on the trim level, the Jeep Wrangler has one of three entertainment systems. Radio 130 comes with a CD player, MP3 capability, and AM/FM radio. Upgrade to Radio 130S, and you’ll now have a 1-year subscription to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. The top-of-the-line Radio 430N adds on a 6.5-inch touchscreen, Garmin® GPS Navigation with SiriusXM® Travel Link, and a USB port. And to experience best-in-class audio, the 9-speaker Alpine® premium all-weather sound system plays your favorite song with crystal clear clarity.

To conquer the trail, day-to-day errands, and everything in between, get behind the wheel of the 2016 Jeep Wrangler for sale in Plymouth, MI, here at Dick Scott Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and in Fowlerville, MI, at Dick Scott Motor Mall. We are open six days a week, with convenient evening and weekend hours, so it’s always a good time to see what the Wrangler brings to the table.

Wrangler Sahara: old and new

Recently, Allpar road-tested the Jeep Wrangler Sahara, finding a mixture of old and new inside.

Older items included the hard-drive stereo, complete with a tilting screen to show a DVD reader; the basic design, one of the oldest in the FCA empire; and much of the underlying hardware.

Newer items included welcome revisions to the stereo, including better USB thumb drive handling, and top-removal and window-lowering tools in the glovebox (which was not quite large enough for the owner’s manual, oddly enough).

The 2015 model year ushered in a standard eight-speaker stereo with a new sound bar; the optional Alpine Audio Package had nine Alpine speakers with a new all-weather subwoofer under the cargo floor), while the 2016 Saharas will have an olive green interior option, body color bumper, and different wheels.

The 2014s had minor and mostly cosmetic changes, other than the launch of a Rubicon X and Freedom III. The five-speed automatic replaced an older four-speed in 2012, as the old 3.8 “minivan engine” was swapped out for a new Pentastar V6. There were also some aerodynamic improvements and off-road upgrades for the Rubicon. The interior had been redesigned in 2011.

A “completely new” Wrangler is due in 2018 or so, but it will most likely keep the basic body-on-frame, solid-axle setup of the current Jeep icon.
