Guest Post: 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
With eight distinct models to its name, the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited presents a classic look with new upgrades that will enthrall prospective owners. Roads and nature won’t be a problem with the Sport, Sport S, Sport RHD, Freedom Edition, Sahara, Rubicon, MOAB Edition, and Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition. Described as a dependable, long-lasting vehicle, the Wrangler provides a driving experience that is unmatched with it’s title of “Best 4×4 Vehicle of the Decade” by Four Wheeler magazine.
Starting at $25,795, the Unlimited Sport has a Pentastar 3.6L V6 engine with a six-speed manual transmission and available 5-speed automatic. With the power from the engine, there is also need to keep the car in control, provided by the Command-Trac 4 wheel drive system and Dana Front and rear axels. To enhance the driving experience and safety of the Wrangler Unlimited Sport, there are also fog lights, cruise and audio controls mounted on the steering wheel, and a media center with AM, FM, and CD.
We called up our local Jeep dealer, Kolosso Jeep of Appleton to get the run down on the various Jeep trim levels and features. As the models progress, more features are available to sustain a pleasurable drive for owners and their passengers. The Sport S includes everything on the standard Sport along with an available premium soft top, 17-inch aluminum wheels, Goodyear Wrangler 255/75 AT Tires, and standard air conditioning and power convenience group.
Many of the models have similar upgrades for the exterior. After the Sport RHD, there is a standard 5-speed automatic transmission and 4×4 driving, with remote keyless entry, rock rails, deep tint sunscreen glass, Alpine speakers with sub woofer and 368-watt amp, and varying tire options.
To keep the estimated 21 highway miles per gallon and 17 city miles, models beyond the Sahara include Trac-lok and available locking rear differential, fuel fill door and tail light guard, and new Goodyear Silent Armor tires. With the extensive available features, owners will never have trouble when they think about what they can do with their car. Whether its on the road or on an adventure, the Wrangler Unlimited can take anything that weather or track conditions throw at them.
The Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition, the final model in the 2013 Wrangler line, starts at $39,595 and contains everything on the Rubicon with 17-inch 10th Anniversary black wheels, 32-inch BF Goodrich KM2 265/70R17 Tires, Front and fear dual tow hooks, steel off road front and rear bumpers, vented hood, heated seats, individual tire pressure monitoring system and electronic vehicle information center, and Uconnect with voice command and Bluetooth connectivity.
