The Jeep Wrangler has its roots laid firmly in the CJ series of Jeeps, which was based on the WWII Willys MB. The original Willys CJ-1 was the first generation that got the ball rolling for the eventual consumer models that appeared in 1944. From there, the CJ line continued up to the CJ-7 generation in 1986, which is where the Jeep Wrangler came into the picture. The CJ-7 was the basis for the first-generation Jeep Wrangler.
In fact, the Jeep Wrangler's development started long before the CJ-7's tenure on the market came to an end. The original concept and development started as early as 1982, just a year before the original CJ-6 production run ended. Prototypes of the Jeep Wrangler were being built using the CJ-7 as a base. Prototyping continued for the first-generation Wrangler up through 1984, where it eventually began preparation for a consumer production run and release in March of 1986.
The Jeep Wrangler was an overhaul of the original Willys CJ concept by taking a more consumer-friendly approach to the open-air design that popularized the original CJ line of Jeeps. While the leaf-spring suspension was retained from the CJ-7 to the Jeep Wrangler, it was improved to better absorb shock, along with other safety measures being put in place to avoid body roll, such as anti-roll bars, a wider track, and trackbar suspension control links between the body and the axles. These features helped retain the Wrangler's ability to crawl and climb uneven and rough terrain, giving the suspension plenty of travel, but also provided more comfort to drivers on the road.
The basis of the Jeep Wrangler was the blueprint for how the Wrangler would evolve over time. This included systematically improving the safety and handling with each new generation, as well as providing more interior cabin amenities and comfort options. Steadily and surely, the Wrangler's core design and philosophy built around off-road traversal became a linchpin in its identity, and Jeep has further branched into and evolved that concept over the years so that the Wrangler would become the king of off-roading.
The very first generation Jeep Wrangler is designated the YJ and launched in 1986. It is a direct successor to the CJ-7 model, the final generation of the CJ line of Jeeps. The first generation Wrangler lasted up until 1996, when the second generation, known as the Jeep Wrangler TJ, was introduced. The second generation made some minor changes to the appearance of the Jeep, including bringing back rounded headlights and swapping the old leaf springs for modern coil springs.
The third generation of the Jeep Wrangler got underway in 2006 and is known as the Jeep Wrangler JK. Development for the JK started back in 2001 and included a lot of new technology. The Jeep Wrangler JK came onto the scene featuring new trims, different suspension configurations, and all-new electronically controlled mechanical systems. Features such as Rock-Trac 4x4 helped make the Rubicon model even more off-road capable than ever before, while the Sahara model provided Jeep owners with the opportunity to indulge in more luxury-oriented features.
The fourth-generation Jeep Wrangler JL was introduced for the 2018 model year. This included new technologies, new zipperless soft-top options, new active and passive electronically controlled safety features, and new powertrain configurations. Two of the more popular introductions for the Jeep Wrangler JL introduction are the EcoDiesel engine and the all-new plug-in hybrid Wrangler 4xe. The new technologies and features helped further open the door for all new drivers to enjoy the Wrangler and its on-road and off-road capabilities, whether buying new or when searching for used Jeep Wranglers for sale.
There are different types of used Wranglers, and just like how the generational designations may be confusing at first, so can all the trim and model variations. However, the good news is that when shopping for a used Jeep Wrangler here at Honda of Newnan, our team will help you narrow down everything from model years to trim options. You can even pick out which features you want most for your used Wrangler.
One of the big factors with buying a Wrangler is choosing between the standard two-door format and the four-door format. Introduced during the third-generation JK era, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is a four-door variant on a longer wheelbase with more interior room and cargo volume. You still have the ability to make use of the open-air design. If you don't plan on soaking in the sun and removing the doors, windshield, or roof, then going with a standard hardtop is a fine option. However, if you do plan on embracing the open-air design, you go opt for either a hardtop or soft-top design.
Another important consideration is the powertrain. If you're a hardcore off-road enthusiast, then going with a lighter V6 and avoiding any unnecessary accessories might be a good option, especially for rock crawling. However, if you really want the extra torque and the better fuel economy, the heavier but more fuel-efficient and torque-oriented EcoDiesel may be the better option. If you're an eco-conscious driver, then consider the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid, which gives you a mix of a small gasoline engine combined with an electric motor.
