The most basic Wrangler also has the most basic name: X. And it's all you'll need if you want an everyday vehicle that will love to leave the pavement on the weekend.

Powering the all-new X is a 3.8-liter V6, 202-horsepower motor (the same used in Chrysler's minivan line) that has ousted the previous 190-horsepower V6.

There's also a newly-designed instrument panel, and improved steering (with cross-car linkage), shocks, front and rear suspensions, and two-speed transfer case.

As the lowest-priced Wrangler, it has the fewest standard features, which is not to say it's lacking in any category. It has the features that really count, such as ABS, electronic stability control and roll mitigation, and front air bags. As always, the top and doors are removable (half-doors are also available) and the windshield can be folded down.

Options include removable side-steps, automatic transmission, cruise control, and something new: power windows and locks, with keyless entry. So if you're not too much of a Jeep purist, you can say goodbye to the ol' hand-cranked windows if you wish.

Although it's not made to the extreme like its big brother Rubicon, the Wrangler X is still tough as nails and undoubtedly Trail Ready, as they say at Jeep. That trademark utility is increased with an all-new frame that's twice as stiff as before, plus a 50% stiffer body. The cargo area is bigger, with a longer swing gate than ever before. An innovative storage area is concealed under the cargo area's liner, and it is out of sight and inaccessible when the swing gate is locked.

The front seats boast a tad more shoulder and hip room, but the backseat is a tight fit, both in getting bodies back there and in keeping them comfortable. The word from Jeep is that it's a five-passenger vehicle, but that middle seat is no throne. Still, the ride is more pleasant than ever now that it's quieter; lots of wind-tunnel research was done to determine how best to reduce noise and improve aerodynamics without compromising the essential Wrangler shape.

Most importantly, the new Wrangler gives safer transportation, with the aforementioned ABS and front air bags (seat-mounted side air bags are optional). The doors have also been bolstered to provide more protection in case of impact, and the body has been reworked with an implemented crush-zone system.

The X can be dressed for success in a variety of convertible tops: the standard soft-top, an optional Sunrider bimini-style folding soft top, and the Freedom Top, a three-piece modular hard top. The tops come in either black or khaki, depending on the body color chosen.

And when you get your X good and muddy, there is no need to fret. Handy drain plugs allow you to hose down the floor from the inside as needed, and a premium, water-repellent seating upholstery is available.

When you opt for the Unlimited X, here's what you get beyond all the great features of the original X: twice as many doors and a hundred times as many looks.

That's because a Wrangler Unlimited is like no Jeep ever before. The all-new generation has gone beyond the usual improvements and behind-the-scenes changes to present a truly unique vehicle. In fact, it's the only four-door of any manufacture available with a convertible top.

You also a lot more cargo room than the two-door X affords: about three times as much. Jeep considers the X a five-passenger vehicle, although the chump who gets stuck in the middle of the backseat may beg to differ.

Like all Wranglers, the X features a 3.8-liter V6, 202-horsepower motor (the same used in Chrysler minivans) that comes in a wee bit stronger than the previous 190-horsepower V6. There's also a newly-designed instrument panel, and improved steering (with cross-car linkage), shocks, front and rear suspensions, and two-speed transfer case.

Fuel economy, if you can call it that, is rated at 17 city/19 highway. But people buy Jeeps because they want to drive over trees, not hug them.

The best news is that the X is safer than ever, with its standard ABS, electronic stability control and roll mitigation, and multi-stage driver and passenger air bags. As always, the top and doors are removable (half-doors are also available) and the windshield can be folded down.

The X Unlimited is available in 2WD or 4WD. The S Options Package adds cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, deep-tint sunscreen windows, tow hooks (2 front, 1 rear), fog lamps, temperature and compass gauge, and aluminum wheels. Separate options include engine block heater, Trac-Lok limited slip rear differential, and automatic transmission.

The beloved Wrangler Sahara is sure to win over even more enthusiasts with its new-generation showing. It was already a great vehicle, but numerous improvements in ride, safety, and off-road ability have made it even more so.

The 202-horsepower (12 more than previous), 3.8-liter V6 is made of cast-iron, and it's noticeably quieter than earlier Wranglers' engines. An additional 5.5 inches in width and 2 inches in length result in a roomier interior as well as somewhat increased side-to-side stability.

When it comes to ground clearance, the Wrangler places best in its class. This new frame was built to be twice as stiff as before and the new Generation II Command-Trac transfer has double the bolts for added utility. All two-door Wranglers come with a part-time four-wheel drive system rather than all-wheel drive, as the 4WD is meant to be used only on wet or loose surfaces, not dry road.

Although the Grand Cherokee received an independent front suspension when it was re-made for 2005, the Wrangler retains live-axle front and rear suspensions with gas-charged shocks for optimal off-pavement performance. As for the transmission, buyers who aren't interested in shifting can shun the 6-speed manual with overdrive in favor of the 4-speed automatic.

Aesthetics and comfort are better than ever, with a beautiful new instrument panel, a height-adjustable driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a fine audio system that's mp3-ready. The rear seat is meant to carry two rather than three, and although it's larger than before it's still not plush enough for long trips.

The cargo area is larger and features a longer swing gate than ever before. Best of all, there is an innovative hidden storage area under the liner that is secure and inaccessible when the swing gate is locked.

Standard equipment on the two-door Sahara includes ABS, front and rear tow hooks, fog lamps, tubular side steps, deep-tint sunscreen windows, body-color fender flares,

Limited slip rear differential is available as option, as is a spare-tire cover, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and a Sunrider soft top or hard Freedom top. The Sahara is available in six colors, each matched with either black or khaki for the top.

Any Wrangler Sahara will get attention for its classic Jeep look, but even more heads will turn when that Sahara has four doors. That's right -four doors - and guess what else: it comes with power windows, too.

The 202-horsepower, 3.8-liter, overhead-valve V6 delivers 12 more horses than the previous V6, but several reviewers still consider it rather anemic. But back to the positives. Plenty of improvements were made in ride, safety, and off-road ability, earning the new Wrangler general accolades.

When it comes to ground clearance, and approach and departure angles, the Wrangler places best in its class. This new frame was built to be twice as stiff as before and the new Generation II Command-Trac transfer has double the bolts for added utility. The transmission choices are the standard 6-speed manual with overdrive and the 4-speed automatic.

The new Electronic Stability Program (ESP) increases traction through selective braking and engine control brought about via a combination of traction control, hydraulic brake assist, and electronic roll mitigation. The Wrangler retains live-axle front and rear suspensions with gas-charged shocks for optimal off-pavement performance. The Sahara's suspension is somewhat softer than that of the Rubicon, but it's still a fully capable off-road rig, having more than earned its Trail Rated badge.

The unique, four-door look aside, aesthetics and comfort are better than ever, with a beautiful new instrument panel, a height-adjustable driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a fine audio system that's mp3-ready. The rear doors are small, but they open wide, and the backseat can fit two with reasonable comfort.

The cargo area is larger and features a longer swing gate than ever before. Best of all, there is an innovative hidden storage area under the liner that is secure and inaccessible when the swing gate is locked.

Standard equipment on the Sahara Unlimited includes power windows, ABS, electronic throttle control, front and rear tow hooks, fog lamps, removable side steps, deep-tint windows, remote keyless entry, and regular soft top. Available options include Sunrider soft top, Freedom hard top, limited slip rear differential, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and in-dash, 6-disc premium audio system.

This trim is the namesake of the famed Rubicon Trail, the boulder-strewn site where Jeep conducts developmental testing for its products. Fittingly, this is the only Wrangler on which you'll find rock rails. Yes, it's ready to take on some serious trails. In fact, the pliable-plastic front fenders are removable for those times when you really want to tackle some terrain.

The new-generation Rubicon is wider, longer, and higher, but is it more powerful? It is, but barely, as the 3.8-liter overhead valve V6 comes in with an increase of a mere 12 horses. That's still not enough for a certain segment (perhaps those who never leave asphalt).

The best news is that the new Wranglers are safer, with reinforced doors and door frames, a well-designed crush-zone system, and standard features such as multi-stage air bags (with optional side units) and ABS. A crash is less likely, though, with the improved vehicle control granted by the Electronic Stability Program, which melds traction control, hydraulic brake assist, and electronic roll mitigation.

But what ain't broken should not be changed, and so remain the round headlights, seven-toothed grille, removable doors, exposed hinges, prominent fenders, fold-down windshield, and Trail Rated capabilities. The Rubicon takes the cake when it comes to off-road capabilities: its approach, breakover, and departure angles are best-in-class, as are its ground clearance and water-fording capability (up to 30 inches).

One of the best features of the new Rubicon is the Electronic Sway Bar Disconnect, which allows the driver to disengage the sway bar while driving in 4 Low to achieve about 30% more front-axle articulation. And it's smart, too: the system automatically re-engages the sway bar when you exceed 18 mph on your way back out to civilization.

The Rubicon's well-regarded off-road savvy is increased with an upgraded two-speed transfer case and an all-new, much stiffer frame and body. There's also a newly-designed instrument panel, and improved steering (with cross-car linkage) and shocks, and new five-link front and rear suspensions, which afford more stability and more precise steering.

There are more conveniences, too, as the cargo area is larger and includes an innovative hidden storage area under the liner that is secure and inaccessible when the swing gate is locked. The most unexpected addition, for a Wrangler, that is, might be the power windows. But fear not - the doors are still removable.

The Rubicon offers versatility in its available array of convertible tops: the standard soft-top, an optional Sunrider bimini-style soft top, and the Freedom Top, a three-piece modular hard top. The tops come in either black or khaki, depending on the body color chosen. We know it looks its best when it's covered in mud, but you don't necessarily want mud on the inside. That's when you'll appreciate the drain plugs, which allow you to hose out the floor area. Pretty handy, indeed.

True Jeep-lovers know that the Rubicon is the only way to go. As the sturdiest and most trail-hungry Wrangler, it was made to take on tough terrain that would make lesser SUVs whimper and whine.

This most capable of Jeeps is the namesake of the Lake Tahoe area's famed Rubicon Trail, the boulder-strewn site where Jeep conducts developmental testing for its products. Fittingly, this is the only Wrangler on which you'll find rock rails and removable front fenders. Yes, it's ready to take on some serious trails.

If you haven't noticed right off what's different this year, you'd better hightail it to the eye doctor. The Unlimited now has four - count 'em, four - doors, and a much longer wheelbase. The additional space makes the Unlimited a bit more practical than the traditional 2-door Rubicon, but it can still tackle the trails. The back doors make up for their small size by opening fairly widely.

The Rubicon Unlimited is powered by a 3.8-liter overhead valve V6 whose 202 horsepower seems wimpy to some otherwise satisfied owners (well, it's the same engine used in Chrysler minivans). Sure, a bit more power would be nice, but this rig exists for its trail capabilities; it's likely that these complainers would hush up if they took theirs off the pavement.

And when they do that can check out one of the best features of the new Rubicon: the Electronic Sway Bar Disconnect, which allows the driver to disengage the sway bar to achieve about 30% more front-axle articulation. And it's smart, too: the system automatically re-engages the sway bar when you exceed 18 mph on your way back out to civilization.

The Rubicon's well-regarded off-road savvy is increased with an upgraded two-speed transfer case and an all-new, much stiffer frame and body. There's also a newly-designed instrument panel, and improved steering (with cross-car linkage) and shocks, and new five-link front and rear suspensions, which afford more stability and more precise steering.

Perhaps most importantly, the new Wranglers are safer, with reinforced doors and door frames, a well-designed crush-zone system, and standard features such as multi-stage air bags (with optional side units) and ABS. A crash is less likely, though, with the improved vehicle control granted by the Electronic Stability Program, which melds traction control, hydraulic brake assist, and electronic roll mitigation.

But what ain't broken should not be changed, and so remain the round headlights, seven-toothed grille, removable doors, exposed hinges, prominent fenders, fold-down windshield, and Trail Rated capabilities. The Rubicon takes the cake when it comes to off-road capabilities: its approach, breakover, and departure angles are best-in-class, as are its ground clearance and water-fording capability (up to 30 inches).

There are more conveniences, too, such as power windows - yes, in a Wrangler! The cargo area is larger and includes an innovative hidden storage area under the liner that is secure and inaccessible when the swing gate is locked. The most unexpected addition, for a Wrangler, that is, might be the power windows.

As Trail Ready as the Rubicon Unlimited is when it rolls away from the dealership, the tuners among its purchasers are having a field day. As evidenced on Jeep owners' online forums, there's plenty to add and alter for a truly personal fit for those who are happiest in 4-Low. And when you get that baby covered in mud outside as well as inside, you'll appreciate the handy drain plugs in the floor which allow you to hose out the footwells.
