The Jeep Wrangler gets minor changes in 2022 and one new package with the Wrangler Unlimited Willys model, the Xtreme Recon.
The Jeep Wrangler continues to build upon its earned reputation among off-roading enthusiasts by delivering a unique driving experience to those looking to explore. Jeep's off-road capabilities rank among the best, while this Wrangler's lighter steering, revised body mounts, retuned shocks and drivetrain have all been upgraded for an around-town experience that makes driving it a pleasure when compared to older models.
The Wrangler is unique in the automotive market with one new direct competitor, the Ford Bronco. Starting at around $31,590 it priced a smidgen lower than a Bronco, other vehicles that do offer a similar level of 4x4 prowess like the Nissan Pathfinder and Toyota 4Runner are much bigger and cost more.
