Ace of Base: 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sport

If you are interested in a review of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sport, I would look elsewhere. The author seems to have missed their calling as a theater critic rather than an automotive reviewer. The review is just hard to read and doesn’t really paint a good picture of the vehicle so you can’t really make up your mind as to whether you want to see the car or not. He does hit the highlights (price, power, driveability) but you have to wade through lines of material that just don’t belong in a review of a vehicle.

Key Takeaways:

  • For this model year Wrangler changes are limited to a few minor changes and a $100 price hike to new starting price of $23,995.
  • The Wrangler has more color choices than a Sherwin-Williams production line, offering everything from staid greys to eye-arresting reds and blues, all for $0.
  • Listening to Jeep owners’ complaints about the headlights not being powerful enough, this new version has a $595 LED lighting option.

“Jeep is fixin’ to launch a redesigned Wrangler as early as next calendar year, meaning this generation of the venerable off-road brute is slowly marching towards its best-before date.”
