The all-new 2018 model is significantly better than its predecessor. It’s no Lexus, mind you, but the Wrangler’s fussy pavement-going manners have been quieted and smoothed, and its considerable trail prowess is improved. If my friend is looking for a rig to tackle earthquakes — and perhaps a subsequent zombie apocalypse — the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is the best choice.
Designer pride is obvious in this machine. Its removable doors gain a handhold for easier one-person detachment. Folding the windshield forward (a remnant of the need to ship jeeps in crates during World War II) is vastly simplified. The bolts that are removed to open the Jeep to the great outdoors each have labeled slots in the cargo hold. Its folding fabric top operation loses the recalcitrant zippers, meaning that owners will actually lower it.
Other competitors may suit families better than the Rubicon that waltzed through the optional severe off-road course spur. The practical Midwestern boy in me feels that the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk ($41,245) is the best practical choice for the Compact and Midsize Vehicle prize. It’s easier for kids to enter and exit, and the Cherokee delivers a more docile ride. And if timeless Wrangler style is your thing, skipping the Rubicon edition for the Sahara model will provide a better daily driving experience.
