The most iconic SUV, 2022 Jeep Wrangler, is ready to offer a much better off-roading package than before. However, the forthcoming model will bounce into 2022 year without significant change in terms of exterior styling. Last year the manufacturer made a few minor tweaks, the new off-roader became available with permanently engaged four-wheel drive. From the information that we got, the latest edition will mostly gain some additional standard tech features.
On the other hand, everything else should remain the same, including the engine. This SUV is powered by a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine and the optional 2.0-liter turbocharged.
2022 Jeep Wrangler Changes
This latest version, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler, remains the same, featuring traditional design language. As you probably know, the Wrangler is one of the most iconic off-roaders in the world. It’s very recognized thanks to the unique formula that Jeep keeps since WW II. Like the prior generation, the new Jeep Wrangler will be available in two forms, a model with 2-door or 4-door. The 2-door model measures just 166.8 inches in length, while the 4-door Unlimited model is nearly 20 inches longer.
Both models are boxy, and the manufacturer offers two hardtop roofs. There is one with twin removable panels, the other with a power-operated retracting cover. Wrangler 4xe model is available as well and is distinguished by some fairly subtle blue exterior graphics. According to many reports, the manufacturer will introduce much more off-road equipment, including bigger off-roading tires.
The cabin of the latest 2022 Jeep Wrangler should mostly remain the same. Of course, expect more quality materials and even more standard equipment. Moreover, the four-passenger layout and removable roof remain the tradition of this off-roader. Generally, there is no much cargo space and is limited to 12.9 feet. However, folding the rear seat opens up 31.7 cubic feet for gear.

Optional on both trims is navigation, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and a mighty Alpine sound system. Active safety technology is available on all trims except Sport.
