Meet the New Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited at Don Miller Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram FIAT in Madison

The Jeep Wrangler is an iconic vehicle. Its unique design and character make it immediately recognizable, and it is emblematic of American car manufacturing. The 2021 Wrangler has some new tricks and features to give buyers in Madison a reason to buy it rather than an older used model.

What's New in 2021?

The biggest change for the 2021 model year for Fitchburg area buyers is that there's now a hybrid drivetrain option. Its the first time the Wrangler has had a hybrid option, and it's a good one, carefully designed to keep the under-body clearance unchanged and deliver plenty of power for offroading. It is restricted to the Unlimited body style, which is the four-door version. Aside from that, there are a couple of new styling trims and a few small offroad optional features added.


For combustion engines, there are two options, both of which were present in previous years. The base engine is a 285-horsepower V6. If you want to upgrade, the next engine is a turbo-V4 with 270 horsepower. It winds up with better acceleration thanks to the turbocharger despite the reduced horsepower. If you are interested in the hybrid drivetrain, it will get a combined 375 horsepower, which is quite a bit for an SUV around Middleton, WI.

Interior and Exterior

The feature set of the Wrangler depends on what trim you get. The current generation of the Wrangler has plenty of tech and safety elements to help it stay competitive with other SUVs of its size, like smartphone connectivity and blind-spot monitoring. The essential packages for those kinds of features are Technology, Active Safety, and Advanced Safety, so those are a good buy. All the tech is controlled by a touchscreen or your phone if you prefer that option.


Trim Levels

The Wrangler has a lot of trims, but many of them are cosmetic. The lineup is mostly unchanged from last year. The Sport is the base trim, and the Sport S adds on a lot of core features. The Black and Tan, Willys, Sport Altitude, 80th Anniversary, and Islander trims provide external styling changes. The Sahara adds on the Technology package and has more options sets. The Sahara Altitude is a makeover of the Sahara. The Rubicon is a crucial trim. Its got a long list of special features for offroading performance around Stoughton. It's one of the more expensive trims, but it maximizes the Wranglers offroad potential.

What's the Difference Between the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited?

The Unlimited is a body style for the Wrangler that gives it four doors instead of two. It's larger and heavier, so it gets less gas mileage, but you can more than overcome this by getting the hybrid drivetrain. Whether the regular Wrangler or the Wrangler Unlimited depends on how often you have passengers or cargo in the back seat, and also whether you want the hybrid version. With its new hybrid upgrade, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is sure to turn heads around Verona.
