What can you tell us about Motor Trend's "Of the Year" award?

Motor Trend's "Of the Year" program is a competition open to a substantially changed or all-new 2019 model-year vehicle. However, instead of the models being compared directly against each other, all vehicles are put through Motor Trend's comprehensive performance tests in order to inspect every aspect of the vehicle. After that, each vehicle that has entered is evaluated on three-separate courses at a professional automotive test center before the finalists are determined. After all the tests, that take weeks, the finalists are measured in six categories: performance and value of the intended function, safety, efficiency, engineering excellence, and design advancement.  

How did Motor Trend decide the Wrangler was the SUV of the year? 

The Wrangler offers superior features in every category from off-roading capabilities to on-road comfort and functionality and Motor Trend judges and editors were blown away by the impressive levels of style, comfort, and refinement!  These features out-pace any other SUV on the market making it clear to see why the Wrangler is the best of the best! 

What else can you tell us about the 2019 Wrangler?

The Wrangler is more versatile than any other SUV on the market, offering two outstanding body styles. You can choose between the two-door historically inspired model or the four-door family-friendly Unlimited model. Once you've picked the body style you have to pick the trim level and boy are they impressive! What really draws our eye are the classic round headlamps bookending the seven-slot grille that makes the Wrangler a Jeep! In 2019, you can experience the open-air freedom in a whole new way thanks to the available Sky One-Touch Power Top with just a touch of a button. Moving inside, the Wrangler offers connectivity and technology that will keep you connected to the outside world while your off living life to the fullest. High-quality materials make the Wrangler's cabin incredibly comfortable for those long road trips or commutes to and from work. 

In addition to body styles and features, the Wrangler offers capabilities that will blow your mind! The 2019 Jeep Wrangler is the most capable Wrangler that has ever rolled off the production line. There are three incredible 4x4 systems available for trim levels and they include the Selec-Trac, Command-Trac, and Rock-Trac. In addition to the systems, other off-roading features include available 33-inch tires, underbody skid protection plates, larger brakes, stronger axle tubes, and so much more! Every 2019 Wrangler is also stamped with the Trail-Rated badge which means it has been put through a litany of tests from water fording to articulation and is ready to handle whatever you can throw at it! 

Two engines are ready to power the Wrangler through all your adventures! The standard engine, a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, generates up to 285 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque. This engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds and can reach up to 25 miles per gallon on the highway. There are two transmission matches for this engine: a six-speed manual or an 8-speed auto. The second engine, a 2.0-liter Turbo DI, delivers up to 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This engine can also tow up to 3,500 pounds and get up to 25 mpg on the highway.
