Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4×4 in 2009March 26th, 2009 - Posted in Automotive Design
The Wrangler has stood the test of time, but an influx of capable and comfortable SUVs meant that the tried-and-true Jeep was in need of an update. To appeal to Wrangler enthusiasts who need more interior flexibility, Chrysler finally decided to pull the trigger on a four-door model. To the surprise of nobody, the Wrangler Unlimited has been one of the few hits from Chrysler in recent years, at one point prompting a dealer waiting list for the longest-running Jeep. We wanted to try the four-door Jeep for ourselves, so we welcomed a Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon into our garage for a week-long run.
The beauty of the four-door Wrangler Unlimited is that it still packs the rugged looks of the iconic two-door, but in stretched form. As long-time admirers, we enjoy the Wrangler’s looks, especially sans roof, and after driving it in its natural habitat (off the beaten path), the Wrangler’s capabilities never ceased to amaze. But what we didn’t know was what life would be like with a Wrangler as our daily driver.
