1997 Jeep Wrangler

Introduced in mid-1996 as a 1997 model, the Jeep Wrangler has been completely redesigned and re-engineered.

The Wrangler is available in three trims: SE, Sport, and Sahara.

Jeep owners like their Wranglers because they are fun, stylish and handle well. Some complain about the leaking plastic windows, and how hard the Jeep is to control in the wind. Noise is also a nuisance.
