Without question, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler is the most capable, most comfortable and most diverse iteration ever to wear the iconic Wrangler label. As an off-road, rock-crawling champ, the Wrangler knows no equal. But, unlike Wranglers and CJs of the past, the 2020 Wrangler is equally competent on the paved road, offering an SUV-like ride, better feedback from the steering and brakes and more luxury and tech features inside the cabin.
And, while it does face some competition from the new Ford Bronco and the Toyota 4Runner, neither competitor provides the kind of open-air experience or Jeep-specific options unique to the Wrangler.
Interior: The 2020 Jeep Wrangler interior combines elements of modern, sophisticated design with a simple and clean layout that has been part of the Wrangler’s DNA for decades. Nestled in the body-colored dash panels are such 21st-century touches as a large touch-screen infotainment system and (available) Alpine audio system.
Of course, the prerequisite grab handles are still here, as is the removable top and protective incorporated roll bars. Base models are a bit less fancy, but this Sahara model has heated seats and steering wheel, navigation and even a leather-wrapped dash. The Wrangler Unlimited offers more rear-seat legroom courtesy of a longer wheelbase.
Exterior: Even though it is longer and wider than any Wrangler before it, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler is still easily recognizable. It’s a design that has evolved rather than radically changed. While the larger layout helps improve ride and stability, it still features Jeep mainstays like removable doors, a folding windshield and removable hardtop roof.
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.
VERDICT: The iconic Jeep Wrangler leverages modern technology to continue its legacy of off-road dominance. 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.
