2014 JEEP WRANGLER
2014 Jeep Wrangler – When Offroad Capabilities Simply Cannot Fit Daily Uses
There are no doubts that the 2014 Jeep Wrangler is specifically designed for offroad uses and rugged terrains. Just take a peek at its design. However, it can easily endure a daily commute as well, yet you should not expect the comfort from a classic SUV. It has no competition when it comes to offroad uses, while the strong V6 acceleration makes it excellent for any kind of terrain. Furthermore, it is one of the most affordable compact SUVs, yet the experts at Edmunds claim on the exquisite possibilities to jump over any kind of obstacle.
“The 2014 Jeep Wrangler is a no-nonsense vehicle that is at its best when the pavement ends. This classic SUV will climb over rocks, cross streams and frolic in the sand dunes whenever you please.”
What kind of performance draws the line between street uses and offroad
The V6 engine provides enough power in any kind of environment. The transmission is manual and comes with six speeds. It is excellent for rugged areas and offroading. However, you may also opt for a five speed automatic transmission, yet it might seem a little uncomfortable when offroading. The EPA is rated at 17/21mpg city/highway, which is way under rival SUVs. You do not have to be a genius to realize its power as an offroad vehicle. Fortunately, when it comes to everyday uses, its comfort has been slightly improved as well. You will not feel like in a limousine, but it can easily support your everyday needs though. Sometimes, the offroad capabilities might reflect on your daily use though. For instance, you might find the steering to be a little slow.
How comfortable an offroad vehicle can get
The soft top lets most of the noise inside the vehicle. A removable hardtop is one of the extras though, which is great for those who like silent roads. The internal materials have been improved too, so forget about being surrounded by all kinds of hard plastics. The four door variety is more spacious, but also harder to maneuver. Buyers might consider mirrors, door locks, power windows, Bluetooth, navigation and other similar features, yet they add to the costs too. Consumer Guide agrees that potential customers should stick to offroad uses only.
“Despite major improvements to its interior over the years, this Jeep remains a limited-purpose machine. Off road, it is a finely honed tool. On road, it is best considered a fun-in-the-sun runabout."
