The 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Automatic is one of the few vehicles that keep it classy staying true to its roots even when more technology is available to blow the old, classic machine out of the water. Cars isn’t just all about power, performance and practicality but some vehicles are being sold for character, novelty or for delivering a truly unique experience. The Wrangler is a modern incarnation of the War Veteran runabout, even though the Wrangler is bigger, heavier, and more tech-savvy than its ancestor, it inherits its characteristics down to features technology just can’t replace.
The 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Automatic Remains a Preeminent Off-Roader, Even After 75-Years
The 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Automatic 75th Edition is based on the mid-grade Wrangler Sahara models with added bits to make it a limited trim. The 75th Edition gets 17-inch wheels, a “power dome” hood and a specific-to-this-model paint color called “sarge green” which is a nod back to the original US military green paint on the Willy’s. When it comes to modern day Jeeps, the marquee likes to put in minute details that makes the vehicle special; the Wrangler is no exception with rugged bolts that serve both for form and function on the bumper, scoops and handles atop the hood, removable doors, top, and folding windshield, the Wrangler delivers an experience like no other. Under the hood is a 3.6-Liter V6 putting out 285hp.
On the inside, the 2016 Wrangler Unlimited boasts heated front seats and a rear bench upholstered in saddle-colored leather and mesh fabric, with red stitching and commemorative logos embossed at shoulder level. The gauge rings, door handles, and air-vent bezels don a metallic bronze color, and the floor is protected by all-weather slush mats. Cargo space is excellent and the overall interior has great quality as well as excellent durability.
Driving the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Automatic, it’s a one of a kind experience; it’s not very fast as the drag limits the capabilities of the vehicle, road and wind noise make it through the cabin, and knobby tires aren’t known for on-road grip. While not a hard core off-roader like its Rubicon sibling, the Wrangler Unlimited can be a capable off-roader. When it comes to Jeeps, it’s the opposite experience instead of going fast, it’s about going slow off-road, removable roof panels expose you to the outside world, fold down the windshield and you feel as if you’re driving an ATV, it’s an experience that can only be felt first hand, and that is where the Wrangler excels.
