2019 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4×4 Features and Specs
The Jeep Wrangler Sport 4×4 is the entry model to the Wrangler range at the moment, and it’s, therefore, the most affordable way of getting into this legendary off-road SUV. Jeep SUVs are generally regarded as being among the most capable off-road SUVs in the market, but the Wrangler is the most off-road capable of Jeep SUVs. If you’re thinking of buying a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4×4, here are the features and specs of this most affordable Wrangler model.
Even though this is only the second year of a new generation of the Wrangler, you’d have to be something of a Wrangler aficionado to notice the difference between the exterior of this one and its predecessor. That’s a good thing though because the most iconic part of this legendary vehicle is the way it looks. You don’t mess with a winning formula, especially one this successful.
Most of the time you’ll still find a 3.6-liter V-6 under the hood of a Wrangler Sport that develops 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. That power is sent to all four wheels through a standard six-speed manual transmission, although an eight-speed automatic is available, and most of the time this model will have been ordered with the automatic. The big change for this generation is the introduction of a 2.0-liter turbo-four that puts out 270 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque, and introduces a mild-hybrid eTorque system to the Wrangler for the very first time. As well as being a more modern and more efficient powerplant, this option is also exclusively mated to the eight-speed automatic transmission. And of course, every version of the Wrangler is standard 4×4.
Features and equipment
Because the Wrangler Sport is the entry-level model in the range, there are some items it doesn’t get as part of standard equipment that you might expect elsewhere. One of the most obvious omissions is air conditioning, but this isn’t the same as a Cherokee or Grand Cherokee not having air conditioning. The Wrangler Sport has a removable top that turns it into a convertible 4×4, so how much air conditioning to you actually want?
But the Sport does come with some things you might not expect from an entry-level model too. For a start, there’s the Command-Trac Part-Time 4WD System that means this is a genuine off-roader right out of the box without having to pay extra. The Wrangler Sport also comes standard with advanced features like a USB charger, keyless ignition and a rearview camera. Also standard is the Uconnect 3 infotainment system with a 5.0-inch touchscreen display, eight speakers, and Bluetooth connectivity.
For such a capable off-roader, the Wrangler Sport is pretty good on gas. V-6 models with the automatic transmission are rated by the EPA at 18 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg combined. If you want the best fuel economy the Wrangler Sport has to offer, opting for the optional 2.0-liter mild-hybrid turbo-four will get you 23 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the highway and 24 mpg combined. *
