Before the full madness of the New York Auto Show comes upon us, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about this week's test car and spill some thoughts on it. The vehicle in question happens to be the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Willys Wheeler, which is a special edition model for the 2015 model year. Based on the Sport model, the Willys Wheeler gets such features as rock rails from the Rubicon model, 17-inch wheels, a new rear differential, and a number of decals on the outside.
- I like the exterior treatment with the grey paint, blacked out wheels and grille; and decals that harken back to the original Jeep from the 40's
- The interior is somewhat cramped due to the short wheelbase and body shell. Also don't expect to have adult passengers in the back as there no legroom.
- I currently have the hardtop on the Wrangler and will testing how easy it is to remove and put back together.
- The Pentastar V6 and five-speed automatic give the Wrangler some much needed oomph.
Like the 500L Easy, I'll be updating this as the week goes on. In the meantime, if you have questions, put them below and I'll do my best to answer them.
