Jeep Wrangler is 4x4 of the Year, Extreme Category

The legendary Jeep Wrangler has demonstrated its continuing success as a serious off-roader after scooping another major honour – 4×4 of the Year, Extreme category.

The award comes from specialist publication 4×4 Magazine, whose panel of expert judges put a four-door Wrangler at the top of a list of capable competitors, including the Land Rover Defender and Lada Niva. The judges praised the Wrangler’s awesome off-roading capability, style, and equipment.

“The modern Wrangler offers a cracking all-round package for the 4×4 buyer. The three-door version is best left to true hardcore individualists, but the way-more-practical five-door version is definitely worth a closer look,” says Hils Everitt, editor, 4×4 Magazine.

“There’s a choice of manual or auto, and equipment such as leather wrapped steering wheel with cruise control, Uconnect Bluetooth and climate control. For the second year running, it’s the all-round package and value for money that means it out-scores rivals to take our top spot.”

“It’s well known the world over, but still it’s great to see the Jeep Wrangler being recognised by experts for what it does best – extreme off-roading,” says Nigel Land, director, Chrysler and Jeep in the UK. “There’s lots more to come from Wrangler, which we are looking forward to showing our customers in 2011.”

With its ‘go anywhere and do anything’ approach, Wrangler offers a unique combination of world-class off-road driving, fun, everyday convenience and versatility.

Wrangler models are covered by the comprehensive Jeep warranty scheme, which provides a three-year/60,000 mile mechanical warranty, seven-year anti-corrosion warranty and one-year European roadside assistance.

The diesel-powered Wrangler (manual) returns 39.8 mpg on the combined cycle and has a CO2 figure of 187 g/km. Prices start at £22,995 for the two-door Wrangler 2.8 CRD Sport.
