The Wrangler looks typically like a Jeep with its brawny and bulky build that complements its muscularity and off-road capabilities. Available in both 2 or 4-door versions, the 201 Jeep Wrangler carries forward the legacy that the SUV has been able to create and carries forward rather unchanged.

Overall Rating


Priced at $22,995 for its base variant, the 2016 Jeep Wrangler lacks the practicality that its competitors vaunt of. It lacks nimbleness in its ride and falls short on standard specifications and reliability ratings. It gets placed in an utterly competitive segment that features the likes of the Nissan Xterra and the Toyota 4Runner.

We Recommend

Amongst the trims, we recommend opting for the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon in the 4dr iteration. Not only does it allow for extra seating space, but it also comes equipped with on and off-road tires that improve stability and refinement in the ride quality. While it is steeply-priced, it does offer ample value for the money spent.

2015 Jeep Wrangler Engine and Performance

6.0/10

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler makes use of a single-engine setup across all of its trim levels. It comes equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine that belts out 285hp of power and 260lb.-ft of torque. It is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission as standard, which helps in a more autonomous driving experience and works well in tandem with a 4WD setup.

 In the way that it performs, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler feels curated for the off-roads only. In the city, it does feel underwhelming to drive due to its detached handling capabilities and suffers from incessant body roll. Conversely, it feels quick and fast-moving sprinting from 0 to the 60mph mark in mere 6.9 seconds. While its quarter-mile timings are not yet known, it can reach a top speed of 151 MPH.

In comparison with its competitors, the 2015 Nissan Xterra and 2015 Toyota 4Runner are similar in powertrain and come equipped with a 4.0L V6 unit channeled to a 5-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drivetrain. While the former is the torquiest SUV in the segment at 281lb.-ft, the latter despite higher power output remains at the bottom of the table clocking 9 seconds to the 60mph mark.

2015 Jeep Wrangler Fuel Economy

8.0/10

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler’s fuel efficiency is not the best in the segment but it is decent as per class. It is rated at 17 MPG in the city, 21 MPG on the highway, and combined it manages to average 18 miles per gallon of fuel in the 2dr variant. Its tank is the least voluminous in the segment and can hold 18.6-gallons only. As a result, its range of 316 and 391 miles in the city and on the highway, respectively, feel underwhelming and are the lowest in the segment. However, shift to the 4dr variant and the larger fuel tank of 22.5 gallons bestows a higher range allowing the SUV to rank midway in the segment.

In comparison, the 2015 Xterra manages similar combined efficiency as the Jeep at 18 MPG. However, it is the 2015 4Runner that takes a clear win in the segment and is the most frugal option on offer. While its efficiency is rated at 19 MPG, only a notch above competitors, Toyota equips the SUV with the largest tank in the segment that has a capacity of 23-gallons. Consequently, it manages the highest range both in the city and on the highway averaging 391 and 506 miles, respectively.

2015 Jeep Wrangler Interior

7.0/10

Despite being rugged and beefy, the interior of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler feels ergonomic and is created to cater to the needs of the driver. It’s minimalistic in all aspects and has a clutter-free look to it. It comes loaded with essential specifications with the base trim and the number of features only increases, as one moves up the trim ladder. Road imperfections are seldom felt inside the vehicle however, body roll might be a cause of concern. Irrespective, the seats feel comfortable and provide abundant support to all passengers, even for long trips.

Depending on the iteration you opt for, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler can seat 4/5 passengers. While ingress and egress with 4dr variants are easy, the 2dr iterations demand some extra effort and getting used to. The cargo capacity of 31.5 cubic feet feels ample and the trunk’s cubic shape allows for better carrying capabilities.

Each SUV in the segment can seat five passengers and possesses mammoth cargo capacity. The 2015 Toyota 4Runner leads in the segment with a total trunk volume of 47.2 cubic feet, followed by the Nissan Xterra at 36.3 cubic feet. However, the additional cargo capacity comes at a cost of rear-seat space, which is the best in the Jeep.

Some salient interior features include:

  • Smoker’s Group Package
  • Cruise Control
  • Adjustable Steering Wheel
  • Air Conditioning
  • Front and rear cupholders

How intuitive is the infotainment system of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler?

Like its cabin setup, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler hosts a rather basic infotainment system that gets equipped with standard features. It makes use of a similar touchscreen system as previously available with Chrysler vehicles. The system is easy to use and is intuitive. There are a number of buttons that surround the screen and usability is further eased by the help of steering wheel-mounted controls available with the higher-level trims. Some of its other salient features include:

  • 6.5-inch display unit
  • Steering wheel mounted controls
  • USB Connection
  • Bluetooth Connectivity
  • Optional Alpine Premium Sound System

2015 Jeep Wrangler Exterior

7.0/10

Ever since it was introduced, the Jeep Wrangler has not seen major changes to its design. It continues to look like the old-school and dramatic compact SUV that it always. Buy it with the optional soft or hardtop, either way, it is a looker that garners abundant attention. Though boxy, it looks completely different than its direct rivals. It feels rugged and muscular, elements that are suggestive of its off-roading capabilities. The hollow round front lamps look exquisite and Jeep’s enlarged seven-slate front grille gives it an impressive front fascia. At the rear, the vertical taillamps look rather subtle.

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler’s dimensions are suggestive of its mammoth stance. It looks large even from afar. Though it is not the longest car on offer, its wheelbase of 116 inches is the longest in the segment. It is 73.7 inches wide and 70.9 inches tall with a total ground clearance of 8.7 inches.

The Toyota SUV is the longest and widest measuring 190.2 and 75.8 inches, respectively, and also sports the highest ground clearance of 9 inches. The Nissan Xterra is almost similar in dimensions, however, it’s the tallest vehicle at 74.9 inches, yet it sports the shortest ground clearance.

Some of its salient exterior features include:

  • Optional soft/hardtop
  • Full-size spare tire
  • Running Boards
  • Aluminum Wheels
  • Privacy Glass

2015 Jeep Wrangler Safety

9.0/10

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler fails to impress both the buyers and testing agencies in this aspect. It performs poorly in tests conducted by both NHTSA and IIHS. Its reliability is a major point of contestation in its likability and unlike its competitors, its safety features are not extensive. The Jeep’s safety is its weak point and is an aspect the brand would like to work on in the coming future.

Some of the standout safety features of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler include:

  • Brake Assist
  • Traction Control
  • Stability Control
  • Rollover Protection System
  • Child Safety Locks
  • Front Tow Hooks

2015 Jeep Wrangler Final Verdict

While the 2015 Jeep Wrangler is a looker, its practicality, and pragmatism cause it to spiral into a rather competitive segment. Though it is quick and efficient, the SUV might not be an ideal choice for family haulers, for it lacks a number of safety features and is minimalistic even in its feature load. But the Wrangler has best-in-class off-roading capabilities. If you are looking for an adventurous vehicle that performs well in untoward conditions, the Jeep makes for a viable proposition. Otherwise, we would recommend checking out the competitor
