Overview (Final Score after 8 Categories: B -)

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler comes in myriad variations on generally the same off-roader theme with either soft or hard top models available as well as a two-door and four-door extended wheelbase version called the Unlimited. Some Wrangler’s go a step further with their off-road 4×4 capabilities and none does this in a more hardcore fashion than our tester that we spent a week testing—it’s known simply as the Wrangler Willys Wheeler in a tribute to the original military Willys Jeeps from which sprang this modern day utilitarian rock climber.

Even though a two door Wrangler starts at an insanely reasonable $22,395, we still thought that given all of the very impressive off-road features added to our Willys that its near $26,000 base price was quite reasonable. All told once we got done adding Jeep “luxuries” like power windows, locks, mirrors and a killer upgraded sound system with speakers in the roll bar overhead the sticker was nearing $30,000. Still, given the fact that you can remove the soft top, lower the front windshield (only off-road please!) as well as remove the doors means that having features like power windows was an engineering difficulty in itself. (Note: In case you were wondering, when you remove the doors you simply unplug a cord to cut power to the windows.)

What We Loved about the 2015 Jeep Wrangler

  • Its hardcore off-road capabilities are world class
  • Interior materials and noise suppression is better than in years past
  • The prices are very reasonable considering what it can do


What We Didn’t Love about the 2015 Jeep Wrangler

  • Still a bit too much wind noise with convertible top
  • Side impact protection could be improved according to IIHS
  • Not the most practical daily driver on city streets and freeways
