First Drive: 2012 Jeep Wrangler

Power to the people.

The big changes for the 2012 Jeep Wrangler are found under the hood.

Nobody doubts the iconic status of the Jeep Wrangler. It is, after all an “All-American” classic, with a distinctive bloodline that reaches back 70 years to the  legendary Jeeps of World War II.

For 2012, however, the Wrangler gets better, much better, as it is equipped up with an all-new and more powerful 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with five-speed automatic transmission that enhances the Wrangler’s on-road performance without compromising any of its legendary off-road capabilities.
