When I start thinking of vehicles that might allow me to  have a little fun on & off road, the first one I think of is the Jeep Wrangler. To me, it’s one of the best looking SUV’s I’ve ever seen and boasts the title of “king of off-road production vehicles” to boot!  The 2012 Wrangler gets some exciting changes you definitely won’t want to miss out on.
The 2012 Wrangler packs in an all-new 3.6L v-6 that gives better gas mileage, a smoother ride and more power. Want to talk numbers?

 
Horsepower = 285 (a staggering 40% increase from its predecessor model!)
Torque = 260 lb.-ft

The new Wrangler will be available in four models: Sport, Sport S, Sahara and Rubicon and all models will sport a new interior for 2012. Taking a look at the changes, Jeep is offering quite a new and improved experience for Wrangler drivers.

Better Performance and an inside face-lift … this is probably the best year to look into picking up a new Jeep!
