2005 Jeep Wrangler

The 2005 Jeep Wrangler is available in six models: SE; X; Sport; Rubicon; Unlimited; and Unlimited Rubicon. The Sahara is no longer available.

The 2005 Jeep Wrangler lineup includes a new Unlimited model.  

Although the Jeep Wrangler been re-engineered at least a half-dozen times over the past sixty years, it still is as close as you can get to a direct descendent of the World War II-era Jeep.

What do drivers think about the 2005 Jeep Wrangler? It's fun and you can drive almost anywhere, but with its soft-top, it's not terribly secure, and gas mileage is no better than fair.
