THE Jeep Wrangler continues to demonstrate its award-winning credentials after taking 4x4 Magazine’s 4x4 of the Year, Hardcore class, for the second year running.
The award, which goes specifically to the four-door Wrangler, comes from the specialist publication’s panel of expert judges, who put the rugged US-built off-roader above some extremely capable competitors.
In the same awards, Jeep’s new Grand Cherokee received a “highly commended” accolade in the Premiums category.
In awarding it top honours, the 4x4 of the Year competition judges praised the Wrangler’s value for money, comfortable interior, off-roading ability, towing prowess and iconic design.
“The Jeep Wrangler remains 4x4 Magazine’s Hardcore Class champion. It effortlessly demonstrates its off-road capabilities with immense power and torque, while delivering a gorgeously low, first crawler gear for when finesse is needed,” says Nigel Fryatt, the magazine’s editor.
The diesel-powered automatic Wrangler returns 34.9 mpg (34.0 mpg four-door) on the combined cycle and has a CO2 figure of 213g/km (217g/km four-door). Prices start at £27,315 on-the-road.
