Jeep Wrangler is hugely popular in the Middle East. It is as though the vehicle was made for the UAE terrain. The first Wrangler was produced in 1986 and since then, all successive generations have been equally capable. Since Emiratis are interested in big vehicles, this off-road icon is a favorite of many.
Numerous people in the UAE have purchased Jeep Wrangler because it is very satisfying. Although various models of Jeep Wrangler have been introduced by now, the following are the best ones. You can get them in second-hand cars for sale in the UAE.
1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ
Want tons of entertainment and fun but don't want to break your budget? This model is made for you. This Generation proves that you do not need a new Jeep Wrangler to benefit from the off-roading perks because the 1995 one has it all!
This Generation is unique and sentimental because it was the last year of its manufacturing.
These vehicles are strongly built and solid. The available body types are 2-door convertible and SUV. However, if there is one thing that the audience was not fond of, it was the square headlights. This is because the shape was distinct from the usual round-shaped lights of the earlier Jeep Wranglers.
1987 Jeep Wrangler YJ
This is the year where real history began. It was in 1986 that the first-ever Wrangler model, 1987, was manufactured by the American Motors Corporation. This is one of the models which will always be present in the minds of Jeep enthusiasts.
The YJ came in the place of my favorite CJ series. This led to much harsh criticism of the car. But this time, it was not only the rectangular headlights but the long hood and rectangular windshield as well which gained bad remarks. However, there were some tweaks too that were liked by the audience such as a comfy cabin, bigger track, and lower ground clearance.
2013 Jeep Wrangler JK Sport
There is nothing to dislike about this model. It is a perfect fit for someone who wants a more sporty exterior on the Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler JK Sport offers 16 inches of silver-styled steel wheels and is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine which delivers 285 horses.
Other standard features include ABS traction control, a manual convertible top, and a cloth seat trim. The fuel efficiency in the city is 17 mpg whereas on the highway it is 21 mpg.
2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ
In 2006, another major decision by Jeep came which was to discontinue the TJ production and replace it with the JK line in the next year. This model is fueled by a 2.4-liter engine that offers 147 hp and a max trailer weight of 1,000 pounds.
Even though the engine is not large, the handling of the car is superior. If the audience wanted an even more powerful TJ, they had the choice of 4 liters 12-valve SMPI Power engine which delivers 190 hp. This separate trim level had a trailer weight of 2,000 pounds.
1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ
It was in 1997 when the company decided to bring in the second generation Wrangler known as the TJ. The Jeep fans who liked the round-shaped lights embraced the feature again in this model. However, a bit of criticism was taken for the heavy fuel consumption which in turn resulted in poor fuel efficiency.
It comes with a 2.5-liter engine that offers 120 horsepower. From this model onwards, the company started to create all the subsequent Jeep Wranglers with a coil-spring which replaced the leaf-spring suspension system.
Wrapping it up
This versatile vehicle is capable of being your daily choice for roaming in the city and experiencing off-road adventures at the weekends. In short, it is an all-rounder and the above models are the best ones ever released by the manufacturer. Even more, history is packed in the journey of this off-road monster.
