The Best Features and Specs of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler

Few vehicles have reached the prestige that the Jeep Wrangler has achieved. The 2021 Wrangler will maintain that caliber of excellence. Whether you’re looking for a rugged ride to make a statement on the street or you need a tough SUV that can handle what your explorations throw at it, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler is ready to hit the road.

Choose Your Adventures

Not everyone needs an SUV that can take on some of the Earth’s toughest terrains, but some drivers do. One of the things that the 2021 Jeep Wrangler does especially well is offering a high level of customization that allows drivers to find and choose a Wrangler that suits their style and their needs.

Your Wrangler experience will likely start with your choice of trim level. The 2021 Wrangler is offered in a wide range of trim levels and special editions:

  • Sport
  • Willys Sport
  • Sport S
  • Islander
  • Sport Altitude
  • Willys
  • Sahara
  • Freedom
  • 80th Anniversary Edition
  • Sahara Altitude
  • Rubicon 
  • High Altitude
  • Rubicon 392

For the uninitiated in the Wrangler world, that may be a lot to choose from. That list of models increases in prices the higher you go, so choose a Wrangler zone that best suits your budget while providing the features you care about the most.

The Wrangler’s customization options don’t stop at the trim levels. You’ll also need to choose from the classic two-door body style or the extended four-door Unlimited models. Give your Wrangler one of the six rooftop options. With all these options, Jeep allows everyone to build or find their perfect Wrangler model.

Engine Options

You’ll also have the choice of several engine options. Some of these engines will have later availability in the 2021 model year.

  • 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6: 285 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.
  • 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6: 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque.
  • 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder: 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
  • 2.0-liter 4xe hybrid engine with two electric motors: 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
  • 6.4-liter HEMI V-8: 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.

These engines are paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Off-Road Capability

As always, the Wrangler is the best of the best when it comes to off-roading confidence. Though you’ll see more off-road-ready gear on the Wrangler as you progress through the trim levels, the Rubicon reigns supreme. This model gives you access to features such as 33-inch all-terrain tires, rock rails, a rock-crawling Rock-Trac four-wheel-drive system, an electronic sway bar disconnect system, and more.

That being said, every Wrangler boasts the Trail Rated badge, which means it’s been tested in grueling climates and terrains to deliver superior capability. Every 2021 Wrangler is equipped with one of its three available four-wheel-drive systems. These systems offer multiple drive modes to let you prepare your Jeep for the road ahead or lack thereof.

Safari Style

The 2021 Wrangler maintains the same level of charm and ruggedness its name has become known for. From the signature round headlamps and elongated seven-slot grille to the spare tire mounted on the back, the new Wrangler looks good coming and going.

Each model’s exterior features skids plates to protect its undercarriage from rocks and tow hooks.  Add the available Premium LED Lighting Group for better vision at night. The dozen wheel style options come in sizes ranging from 17-20 inches. The three soft tops and three hardtops let you open up your Wrangler’s cabin for a safari-like experience. Remove the doors and fold down the windshield to further remove the separation between you and the great outdoors.

Interior Space

As you upgrade through trim levels, the 2021 Wrangler’s cabin grows more cozy and impressive. The Sport offers two colors of cloth upholstery, and higher trims offer McKinley leather trimming. The dashboard’s rugged design, with circular A/C vents and easy-access controls, looks as ready for adventure as the exterior does. The Wrangler’s removable carpet and in-floor one-way drain make it easier to clean your floors after muddy adventures. Organize more gear with the available Trail Rail system, which adds clever storage compartments to your cabin, such as the rear cargo space under-floor storage area.

Opt for a model equipped with the Cold Weather Group to enjoy heated seats and a heated steering wheel. Add the dual-zone automatic temperature control to stay comfortable during all seasons.


In addition to all these features, the Wrangler also offers a great array of technology features to enhance your daily drives. The 2021 Wrangler comes standard with a 5-inch touch screen, though a 7-inch version is available at the Sahara level. This larger screen is compatible with the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone streaming programs. The High Altitude puts a 4G Wi-FI hot spot in your cabin and upgrades the sound system to the premium Alpine option. A navigation system, Amazon Alexa integration, a digital driver information cluster — the new Wrangler is as smart as it is tough.

Safety and Security

When your travels take you onto city streets, the 2021 Wrangler’s intelligent safety and security features are there to keep you safer. Some of the most impressive of these features are the advanced driver-assist technologies. These technologies use sensors to look out for vehicles around your Wrangler to boost your awareness of potential dangers.

The available blind-spot monitor and rear cross-path detection system use rear-mounted sensors to inform you of vehicles in your blind spots or vehicles that a

re coming when you’re about to back out of a parking spot. The forward-collision warning system warns you of upcoming danger and will even engage the Wrangler’s brakes if needed. Opt for the available parking assists to make sliding into tight city spaces a breeze.
