September 16, 2009 , Frankfurt, Germany -

With more than 68 years of legendary off-road capability, the Jeep® Wrangler doesn’t sacrifice anything inside the cabin, offering safety and convenience features, interior space, versatility and comfort.

Whether choosing a Wrangler Sport, Sahara or Rubicon® model, Jeep Wrangler customers will experience best-in-class off-road capability in a true open-air sport-utility vehicle.

The Jeep Wrangler adds even more refinement with a new and improved Sunrider® soft-top system, making it even easier to remove the top for that open-air experience on- or off-road.

The Sunrider soft top is redesigned with a new cable-top system that allows customers to easily open and close the top within minutes. The improved soft top features a simplified removal system, eliminating the need to un-tuck and tuck the side rails when opening and closing the top.

Other features offered on the Jeep Wrangler include compass and outside temperature display, fog lamps and larger sliding sun visors with mirrors.

Cloth seats now replace vinyl seats on all Jeep Wrangler models, with new monotone leather seats now available on Jeep Sahara and Rubicon models. In addition, the Wrangler Sport model now features a new full-length floor console.
Jeep Wrangler models offer a 3.8-liter V-6 petrol engine that generates 151 kW (202 hp DIN) and 321 N•m (237 lb.-ft.) of torque, backed by a six-speed manual gearbox or an available four-speed automatic transmission.

The optional 2.8-liter Common-rail Diesel (CRD) turbo diesel generates 130 kW (177 hp DIN) and 410 N•m (302 lb.-ft.) of torque and is mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox.

Jeep Wrangler Sport and Sahara models are equipped with the Command-Trac® NV241 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. An available Trac-Lok® limited-slip rear differential provides extra torque and grip during slippery, low-traction situations, such as driving over sand, gravel, snow or ice.

The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model is equipped with an Off-Road Rock-Trac® NV241 two-speed transfer case with a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio, as well as electric front- and rear-axle lockers, an electronic sway-bar disconnect and 32-inch off-road tires.
