2023 Jeep Wrangler
The Jeep Wrangler is the original Jeep. First introduced into the U.S. military, eventually a civilian version hit dealership showrooms. Known for its customization and configuration, the Wrangler can offer consumers all types of ways to personalize their Jeep. Going into the 2023 model year, the lineup has been increased a bit, and that means more options found on more trims at a great price. Check out the specs for the 2023 Jeep Wrangler.

For 2023, the Jeep Wrangler now comes with nine trims – Sport, Willys Sport, Sport S, Willys, Rubicon, Sahara (four-door availability only), Sport RHD (four-door availability only), High Altitude (four-door availability only), and Rubicon 392 (four-door availability only). As mentioned Jeep customization is a huge reason why Jeepers love them. There are the choices of half doors or no doors, half windows and no windows, plus seven different tops available on select trims. The open air freedom of an open Jeep is sometimes what the trails call for. With the new lineup, the standard powertrain is a 3.6-liter V6 with variable valve timing (VVT) and Engine Start/Stop (ESS) technology. Able to generate 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, consumers can get an extra boost with a variant equipped with mild-hybrid eTorque technology.
Going higher up the tier lineup, the Sport RHD and High Altitude trims come standard with the 2.0-liter DOHC turbocharged engine with ESS, able to generate 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The Sport and Rubicon can upgrade to this engine if consumers choose. The 6.4-liter V8 SRT HEMI with a multi-displacement system (MDS), however, is exclusive to the Rubicon 392. This beauty can generate 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Up to the Sahara trim, any 20223 Jeep Wrangler can come with either of the first three engines.
A six-speed manual transmission is the standard for the 3.6-liter V6 with VVT powertrain, with the option of upgrading to an 8-speed automatic. The rest of the lineup comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission as the standard. If the 4×4 system availability remains the same, the standard is the Command-Trac part-time 4WD system (not found on the Rubicon), that switches to 4×4 when a loss of traction is recognized, and can offer a 2.72:1 low range for rock crawling and neutral for flat towing when properly equipped.
The Jeep brand is known for keeping the base of any model basically bare. For convenient features, consumers can find power heated exterior mirrors and automatic headlamps past the Willys Sport trim (but available as an upgrade), LED options for the tail lamps and premium reflector headlamps. Mirrors with turn signals are only available on the High Altitude trim. Across the lineup, the 2023 Jeep Wrangler comes with front door tinted glass, a tinted windshield glass, and solar control or deep-tint sunscreen glass. For added protection, some trims can come with Gorilla Glass coating for when out on the trail. 17-inch wheels are the standard, but the wheel size can go as large as 20-inch wheels on the High Altitude trim.
As usual, the basic upholstery will be cloth, with leather upholstery most likely starting mid-way through the lineup with the Sport RHD trim. The High Altitude and Rubicon 392 trims come with leather upholstery. Standard on every trim is a 60/40 split-fold rear seat and reclining front seats, a reclining manual 6-way adjustable driver’s seat with manual 2-way lumbar adjust, and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. Past the Willys Sport trim, consumers can get lovely amenities such as heated front seats and automatic temperature control A/C. After the Willys Sport trim, more comfort features become available, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a leather-wrapped shift knob and brake handle. Ambient LED interior lighting can be found in select trims.
The fourth generation of Uconnect is still the standard on the 2023 Jeep Wrangler, with Uconnect 4C NAV found past the base trim. The standard touchscreen is a 7-inch display, and integrated voice command with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Google Android Auto are all standard. More options can be added, such as SiriusXM Radio, HD Radio, and a 4G LTE Wi-FI Hotspot on various trims. Past the Willys trim, the touchscreen is upgraded to an 8.4-inch display with Uconnect 4C NAV. The standard sound system is an eight speaker audio system, but an Alpine premium sound system can be found as an option past the Willys Sport trim.
