Not only is the new Wrangler as capable as ever, it's also less expensive and has more content than the Wrangler it replaces. As part of Chrysler's effort to bring the vehicle's MSRP down closer to its actual transaction price (thus eliminating troublesome incentives), the Wrangler starts at just $18,765, down $285 from the 2006 model and with $1,715 in more content. The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon drops an even more impressive $1,840 while gaining $1,255 in content. Across the lineup, the average Wrangler price drop averages out to around $1,200, and the all-new Wrangler Unlimited 4x4 four-door is just a few grand up from the base two door at $20,410.

Chrysler boasts that more content than ever comes standard, including a much needed engine upgrade thanks to the new 202-hp, 3.8L V6; Jeep's electronic stability program (ESP); Electronic Roll Mitigation (ERM); anti-lock brakes; and multiple door and top configurations.

      "Two-wheel drive models? Is that a Wrangler first?"

      Nope.
      • 8 Years Ago
      The jeepster wasn't an offroad jeep.. and the dj was a US postal service delivery vehicle.. so I'd say 2wd offroad jeep is a first.

      I check rebates at least once a month to keep my site's info current. Rebates on the Wrangler have usually been around $750, much lower than other Jeeps.

      I'm not so sure about the Liberty diesel selling well, though this might have been because supply was limited. I had to check many Detroit area dealers to find one on a lot. Some of these dealers had over 100 gas Liberties. It wasn't among the best diesels. The Blutec should be much better. I've seen diesel Commanders around. Probably already sold in Europe. If they can get the emissions where they need to be, it'll be sold here.

      I'm not sure when I'll get these prices into my database. Wranglers are much like sports cars, but even more so. People don't cross-shop them with anything. There's little point in offering price comparisons for them, as what is comparable? People who want them, want them, and the price isn't much of a factor.

      Hence the low rebates. A larger rebate isn't going to influence anyone to buy a Wrangler instead of a Ford Escape.

      toyota runs a 4.0L dohc V6 in the FJ and you don't see people complaining that it lacks torque in off road situations. at 2000 rpm the chrysler 4L spins out about 235lbft of torque.. which is the max rating for the 3.8L So in that regard the engines are similar, the 4.0L just has 58 more horses and 25 more lbft of torque total.i personally don't want an old caravan motor in my brand new jeep.
      • 8 Years Ago
      Doug - I believe the issue has been the length of the full-time TC, although I imagine you could do it with the current and new Unlimiteds, maybe even the new SWB (I don't know specifically what the dimension issues are). It also appears that AEV has coupled Selec-Trac with their Hemi conversion in a TJ, so it's certainly possible with fancy engineering. I went ahead and bought a 2006 Rubicon Unlimited myself, as the 4.0 is probably at its peak of perfection, and I just don't trust that modular hard top to be leak-free for the first year, not to mention the amazing deals to be had by undercutting employee pricing in July vs. the reports of many people having to pay above MSRP for 07s...

      "including a much needed engine upgrade thanks to the new 202-hp, 3.8L V6"

      I disagree....the 190hp 4.0L had a boatload of usable torque, and great character that matched the wrangler. the new motor, while not bad (same engine that's in our caravan) is kinda bland

      lack of a 4cyl version has me perplexed. and a diesel US version would be welcome

      I THINK THAT JEEP HAS COME SUCH A LONG WAY. THE JEEP WRANGLER IS SUCH A NICE RIDE. BUT IT IS TRUE IT REALLY IS A JEEP THING. BUT IT REALLY HAS COME ALONG WAY WITH EVERYTHING THAT IS DOES AND OFFERS!!
      • 8 Years Ago
      If anybody realizes it, it will be DaimlerChrysler. The Grand Cherokee will be avilable in diesel this winter, so they definitley wouldn't rule it out for the Wrangler. I think the Commander will see a diesel first, though.
      • 8 Years Ago
      I disagree with your comment on the 4.0. It was a good engine in it's day, but it's day is long gone. Much like GM's 3.8 V6 it's age is really apparent today with it's rough idle, thrashy revving and poor emissions. It was time for the 4.0 to go.

      I like the new Wrangler overall, but what would make it really hot is the option of getting one with the 5.7L HEMI. It's a $900 or so option on Dodge trucks, why can't it be a $900 option on the new Wrangler?

      Can you imagine the fuss over a factory HEMI Wrangler Rubicon?
      • 8 Years Ago
      I am patiently awaiting the 2007 Wrangler over hear in the UK
      I tried the current one, but being a bit on the large side I found it a tight squeeze.
      For me at this time it looks just right.
      I have had the therapy and taken the pills but I just can’t get it out of my head.
      So when it arrives I will be down to my local Jeep garage to treat myself.

      NO SOLAR YELLOW COLOR, YET... :(

      THE MyGIG stereo will be cool. and the locking rear storage.

      • 8 Years Ago
      Hi
      Jeep/Willys had the 2wd Dj-3a back in the fifties as well as the 2wd Jeepster in the late forties.

      I Think the new 4dr is very jeepster like and I can't wait to buy one... 4wd of course :)
