2019 Jeep Wrangler vs 2018 Jeep Wrangler

Serving Elizabeth City, NC

In 2019, the Jeep Wrangler is outfitted with more safety technology than before. It also gets even more off-road capacity, and it comes with plenty of options for a custom finish. There are four trim levels in the 2019 Wrangler. They are offered in either a two-door or a four-door body style. With ten paint colors, two wheels, and a variety of tops to choose from, the options are infinite for a tailored finish. The 2019 model gives you some updates, but it retains the best qualities of the 2018 Wrangler, which are a modernized, custom interior and more capability compared to previous models.


The 2019 Wrangler comes standard with a 3.6L engine that produces up to 285 HP and up to 260 LB-FT of torque. With this engine, you get a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 LBS. The engine operates on standard gasoline. It is paired with a six-speed manual transmission, but an eight-speed automatic transmission is available. Part-time and full-time four-wheel drive are available options for your 2019 Wrangler. Every trim level features skid plates and an engine cooler. A second engine option is the 2.0L direct-injection engine. This turbocharged engine produces up to 270 HP. It has a peak torque production of 295 LB-Ft. This engine has the same towing capacity as the base engine, which is 3,500 LBS. A unique fuel-saving feature on this engine means that if you put it in a lower gear, it saves energy and maximizes torque production. A new engine in the 2019 model year is the diesel, which is a turbocharged engine that produces up to 440 LB-FT of torque. Although the diesel engine is a new option, the same two gasoline engines are offered on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler.


On the outside, both the 2019 and the 2018 Wrangler feature rugged and attractive designs. Both are available in a variety of paint colors, which gives you considerable freedom for a personalized finish. The Wranglers in both model years are characterized by their rugged, oversized tires. Both have rear-locking axles and rock rails. Tow hooks and skid plates, which are standard on the base model, enhance the Wrangler’s appearance while also adding to its function. The Wrangler is available in both a two-door and a four-door version. Both options can be paired with a variety of soft-top and hard-top designs. The appearance of the 2019 Wrangler is based on the 2018 Wrangler, which was completely redesigned. The 2018 Wrangler kept Jeep’s signature styling, but it got more features such as rounded headlights, a fold-down windshield, removable doors, and a seven-slot grille. Depending on the trim level, fog lights were available, too. For the first time, all-around LED lights were offered on the 2018 Wrangler. The fenders on the 2018 Wrangler, which carried over to the 2019 model, featured a high-clearance design that could support 33-inch tires.


When it comes to interior amenities, neither version of the Wrangler disappoints. The 2019 Wrangler features cloth seats on the base model. Moving up in trim level, however, you can get more luxurious premium leather seats instead. A five-inch touchscreen infotainment display is standard, but you can get a screen size up to seven inches. Keyless entry, a backup camera, electronic stability control, and roll mitigation are highlights of the 2019 Wrangler. Many of the same amenities are offered on the 2018 Wrangler, but it has fewer safety features.

There’s a lot to enjoy in both the 2019 and 2018 Jeep Wrangler vehicles. With a variety of trim levels and options, there is plenty of room for a custom finish with both. When you are ready to test out either Wrangler or try out both for comparison, contact us to schedule a test drive.
