The 2013 Jeep Wrangler keeps a lot of the things that made the previous model year great and addsa few new features. It keeps the 285-horsepower Pentastar V6 engine and six speed transmissions so it is still fun-to-drive and off-road capable.
It is available in Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon trim levels, each with four-wheel drive standard. Electronic stability control with roll control, traction, brake assist, and hill hold control standard on all trims. The upgraded Sahara trim adds body color flares, remote keyless entry, power windows, Infinity speakers, and 18-inch wheels. The top-of-the-line 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon features off-road equipment other manufacturers consider add-ons. These include heavy duty axles, front and rear electronic locking differentials, sway bar disconnect system, rock rails, heavy duty transfer case, and 32-inch BF Goodrich mud tires. All are available with folding soft top or removable hard top. The optional Freedom Top three-piece modular hardtop allows panels to be removed above the riders. Other options listed are Dual Top Group, half doors, front seat-mounted air bags, multimedia infotainment system with navigation, and remote start. The two upgraded trims allow for leather upholstery, heated front seats, and automatic climate control.
New for the 2013 model year, the trailer sway damping becomes standard. This improves towing stability for all trims. The Sahara and Rubicon receive new wheels and an auto-dimming rear view mirror.
Maximum towing capacity is about 2,000 pounds. The 2013 Jeep Wrangler's maneuverability and off-road performance make this vehicle the top of their market.
