The Jeep lineup has always been off-road capable, and many drivers here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow have admitted that there is no better option for boulder-strewn canyons and the steepest of challenging grades. Ford has been paying attention for quite some time now, and the revamped Bronco is peering over the wall to make noticeable advancements regarding trail-rated quality. The 2024 Jeep Wrangler has beefed up its capabilities a burly notch even further to assure it solidly remains the leader of the pack.
One of the most ingenious and useful additions we have seen in some time comes in the form of many trail guides that will be conveniently pre-loaded into the infotainment system. As soon as the driver engages Uconnect 5, they can access comprehensive off-road trail guides for the 62 legendary and demanding Jeep Badge of Honor Trails. If the basics don’t suffice and the “severe exploration bug” kicks in, drivers can also upgrade with a subscription that adds 3,000+ Trails Offroad trail guides.
The Off-Road + feature will now be offered on Rubicon 4xe, Willys 4xe, and Willys gas models. This offers the detailed optimization of transmission shifting points, traction control, and throttle to assure segment-leading performance on any trail. When you engage this super-powered conquering ability in 4HI, Off-Road + provides optimal high-speed settings for sand and mud, and locks the Tru-Lok rear electronic locking differential for peak performance. While you are in 4LO, Off-Road + delivers its wizard-grade trail forces for low-speed rock crawling and more.
New for 2024, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon boasts a head-turning and never-before-achieved level of trail capability. It now features its first full-float Dana rear axle. Jeeps have always been known for their penchant for larger tires, and the full-float setup allows for a vehicle to be driven during the crucial interval of time after you break an axle. There are now also Warn winches available direct from the factory, with the Rubicon now touting a segment-leading 5,000-lb tow capability.
The brand-new interior features the long-journey-ready 12-way power front seats, and standard side curtain airbags for the first and second rows. If you are peering hungrily at the Badge of Honor Trail maps and ready to vigorously dig in, the Wrangler Rubicon X model adds an even heavier arsenal of armor to the ranks. You’ll be navigating the harshest of terrains with standard 35-inch tires, an integrated off-road camera, and steel bumpers.
Other features for the 2024 Wrangler that will be useful in the fierce rivalry against Ford are standard forward collision warning, standard advanced cruise control with stop, standard Uconnect 5 system with best-in-class standard 12.3-inch touch screen radio, and standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The GearPatrol.com review team claimed that the 2024 Wrangler was an excellent choice due to its element of “modern tech meeting dignified old-school steel.” Brand loyalty among Jeep owners remains at the very top of the auto industry, with the 2024 Wrangler offering up a persona that is amazingly close to its original and time-tested Willys origins
