Review of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sport

A sporty and durable Jeep Wrangler tackling boulders and tough terrain is closely tied with most mental images of off-road vehicles, and it is perhaps one of the most popular and iconic off-road vehicles in the automotive world.

The 2017 Jeep Wrangler offers an almost unstoppable off-road vehicle, and the American icon comes in many different editions for drivers to choose from. Below are the Jeep Wrangler specs and reviews reported from drivers and research of the 2017 Sport model.

2017 Jeep Wrangler Sport Review

The four-seater 2017 Jeep Wrangler comes with 28 different edition and trims that offer such classic Jeep perks as unstoppable off-road power and the classic look of the rugged American icon. As far as the Jeep Wrangler reviews from drivers, downsides of the 2017 model include a sluggish powertrain and lacks some of the tech amenities and driver-assist features that are seen in many cars today. The 2017 Wrangler Sport also doesn’t provide the option for side airbags, with less-than-stellar side crash test results reported by the NHSTA.

As far as amenities go, the 2017 base model of the Jeep Wrangler Sport comes with Command-Trac four-wheel drive, 16” steel wheels, tow hooks, Dana front and rear axles, skid plates, CD player with an audio jack for MP3, and drain plugs for a washable interior. It also holds its resale value.
