Dating back decades, the Jeep Wrangler has been a strong fixture in the American off-road vehicle world. Continuing to use the same basic formula as ever, Wrangler has steadily continued its incremental changes. For model year 2024, Jeep has restyled the Wrangler, updated the grille and moderately refreshed his interior tech.

One look at the all-new front end and you’ll see exactly what you’d expect. It’s the same wide-nosed Wrangler face we’ve all grown accustomed to over the last few decades. Further scrutiny reveals that each slot in the grille is more defined and the mesh behind the slot is open. The normally flat bodywork underneath each headlight has been replaced and instead incorporated into the mesh lining. The 2024 Rubicon model may look even more defined as buyers have the option to add a factory-assisted Warn winch with an 8000-pound capacity.

Inside, the most dramatic change is with Jeep dropping older infotainment options in favor of a new standard 12.3-inch center touchscreen that uses Uconnect 5 software. It also has standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Trails Offroad software integrates directly into the central screen, giving you access to guides to Jeep’s 62 Badge of Honor trails (or you have the option to subscribe to access over 3000 trail guides). Soft-touch fabric with contrast stitching wraps around the instrument panel and completes the minor interior updates.

Adding to the 4xe lineup is what Jeep calls the Power Box. This is basically an accessory power supply unit with four 120 volt outlets providing a total output of 30 amps. The Power Box can run independently or in hybrid mode using the SUV’s engine.

Jeep is also expanding its 4xe lineup for 2024 by adding two new models. offers a cheaper version of The new Rubicon X joins both the 4xe and petrol-delivered lineups and sits right above standard Rubicon trim, adding interior beauty and off-road goodies.

    Speaking of off-road goodies, the Rubicon comes with a full-float Danalia axle that makes it easy to mount larger off-road tires. , steel bumpers, an integrated off-road camera and 35-inch BFGoodrich A/T tires mounted on beadlock-ready wheels. Willys trim comes standard with steel rock rails, a locking rear differential and 33″ tires. Additionally, 4xe Willys will get a Selec-Trac full-time transfer case with a 4LO ratio of 2.72:1.

    Same Old Same Old

    There are no powertrain changes, and the ’24 Wrangler lineup retains the same four-engine configuration. Sticking to his V-6 engine on the base makes 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Choosing the 2.0-litre in-line four-cylinder engine reduces horsepower, but also increases torque. The 4xe and 392 powertrains only have an 8-speed automatic transmission, while the 2.0 and 3.6 liter petrol engines are available with a 6-speed manual transmission or the same 8-speed automatic.

    Jeep has also improved some of the Wrangler’s standard safety features. All models come standard with side curtain airbags for the first and second rows. Forward Collision Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control are standard on Sport S and above. Blind Spot Monitoring and Parking Assist are available on all models except the base Sport.

    Jeep has yet to reveal an official price, but expect the 2024 Wrangler to cost slightly more than the current model, around $35,000.
