Negotiate Smarter with the Best Car Buying Tools

The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited stick to tradition by keeping the Wrangler’s iconic design and offering excellent performance in almost every aspect. There are some flaws, however, such as the car’s ridiculously high fuel economy and outdated looks, both of which may upset certain car buyers. In spite of that, it’s still a perfect vehicle for off-road trips that will satisfy those who appreciate the classics.



The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited carries on the Wrangler family name with pride, raining the same iconic features that have made it famous in the first place. Just like the Mustang and Corvette, this car is instantly recognizable, and with a good reason – it has seven years of military heritage under its belt, which is easily noticeable in the quality of this version’s design. That said, you may encounter quite a few outdated quibbles, and that can detract from the overall experience.

You’ll notice Jeep’s perseverance to retain its authenticity as soon as you set your eyes on the 2014 Wrangler Unlimited. For instance, it still has an easily removable top and a windshield that you can move down (you must’ve seen those in movies). Just like its predecessors, this Jeep features uncovered hinges, relentlessly flat surfaces and the kind of aggressiveness that you’d only see in an old-school-styled vehicle such as this. So, yes, the Jeep Wrangler looks just as good – or bad, depending on your sensibilities – as you remember it.

The Unlimited version is available with four doors, while the regular one comes with two. One of the biggest differences between this model and the older ones is the level comfort it offers. The Unlimited option is basically a luxury vehicle on the inside, offering two-tone leather and lots of space. Even the rear seats are a treat, being to comfortably fit both adults and children. And if you don’t use those, you can fold them flat to expand the cargo area to include more off-roading gear and other similar items.

However, the real treat is available under this Jeep’s sturdy hood. What you get here is an excellent 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine, which can pump out 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It’s a fair amount of power for the amount of weight this car is capable of carrying, so it won’t leave you disappointed. You can pair it either with a five-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission, but there’s very little difference in terms of performance.

Fuel economy, however, is absolutely horrendous in his car. The manual version carries the EPA ratings of 14.7 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 11.2 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway. If these number sound high to you, then perhaps you should look the other way. This is a Jeep, and Jeeps are meant to waste fuel, unfortunately. That said, we would argue that they shouldn’t. Definitely not the strongest feature on offer.

In the end, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is meant for off-road trips – as it’s always been. If you’re not into that and you hate the look of the classic Wrangler, then do a 180 and look the other way – you may in fact benefit more from a crossover, like Ford Escape. Otherwise, give it a try; you’ll love it!

Power and Performance:

A few years ago, Jeep re-worked the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited a bit and bolted the Chrysler family’s 285-horsepower, 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 under the hood and upgraded from a four-speed automatic to a five-speed. This made the Wrangler much more powerful, livable, and it was also supposed to make it more fuel efficient.

The EPA rates the Wrangler Unlimited at 16 mpg city, 20 highway, with a combined score of 18 mpg. During my time with it, I averaged 15 mpg. I drove it in 2×4 most of the time and in mixed city and highway driving.

In cars like the Chrysler 300, the Pentastar V6 is an impressive powerhouse. Under the skin of the Wrangler, it’s not quite as awe-inspiring. But I’ll admit it’s a sight better than the minivan motor that used to power the Wrangler. Over all, it’s a win.

The biggest improvement lies with the five-speed automatic. I wish Jeep had bolted up its eight-speed auto to the Wrangler. I suspect that – and a diesel powerplant – will be offered in the next-gen.

Interiors and Special Features:

The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited interior was upgraded with new seats and better ergonomics for 2011. Who expects heated leather seats in a topless Jeep? On the other hand, they are easy to wipe off, and staying warm with the top down in the Rockies on a cool, sunny day is not the worst idea. 

We lived in a hardtop Wrangler for a week and it was all good, comfort-wise. With the top off there was a lot of wind buffeting in the back seat, but aside from that the Wrangler 'is more comfortable than my Jetta,' said our passenger, riding shotgun on rocky trails for a day. 

We've driven a Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. It's roomy and comfortable and, even with leather, still every bit a Jeep. Good rear legroom, easy to climb in and out. The rear 60/40 seat folds or can be removed to create 87 cubic feet of cargo space, comparable to a Toyota 4Runner. 

The center console makes a good armrest, though its height means you have to raise your elbow when using the shift lever. Power window switches are centered in the dash between omni-directional vents. Other controls are grouped around the radio or touchscreen entertainment head, on the stalks, steering wheel spokes, and ahead of the shifter. Bouncing around with your hand on the shifter is not only discouraged for the transmission, you readily get bumped into the switches, and hazard flashers look silly on the trail. 

There's very little storage space behind the Wrangler's rear seat, so four people with four medium backpacks is filled to overflowing. But if it's just you and some stuff, the rear seat can be removed, creating a spacious 61.2 cubic feet of cargo space. 

The Media Center options have their downsides, and if you go offroad or take the top down much, you won't like them. The touch screen is invisible in the sun. In a bouncing Jeep it's not easy to land your finger where you want it, even trying to tune the radio. A Jeep needs knobs you can grab. The 6.5-inch screen is reasonably large, but with some functions less than half of the screen is used, tiny little radio words, the other 60 percent says JEEP.

Safety features:

The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited comes with just the basics on the safety front, including dual front airbags, anti-lock disc brakes, traction control and roll bars. Front side airbags are an extra-cost option. 

The government has not crash-tested the Wrangler, but the independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the 2-door Wrangler a worrisome report card, including Poor (the worst score of four) in the side-impact test and Marginal (second worst) in both the small overlap front test and the head restraints/seats test. The Wrangler Unlimited improved to Marginal in the side-impact test. Both models were deemed Good (the best score) in the moderate overlap front test. 

Note that IIHS tested only Wranglers without the optional side airbags.
