New Jeep Wrangler Frequently Asked Questions

Find Out About the New Jeep Wrangler

Are you thinking about making your new vehicle a Jeep Wrangler? At K&M Wayland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we know that a great deal of research goes into choosing an SUV. To help you make the best choice for your needs, we've answered the most common questions that drivers ask about the Wrangler.

Is the Jeep Wrangler good for off roads?

Yes. In fact, every Wrangler comes with the Trail Rated® certification. That means that the frame, engine, and other systems have been tested intensely to ensure that they're tough enough to handle rough ground. The Wrangler is also available with four-wheel drive and sophisticated steering, so you can get traction on rocks, mud, or snow. Plus, with its high water intake and high ground clearance, it's safe to drive the Wrangler through water.

How many miles does the Jeep Wrangler last?

That depends on your driving habits and how you maintain the Wrangler. Every new Wrangler comes with a warranty that covers the powertrain for five years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, if you take good care of your vehicle, it should last much longer.

Can the Jeep Wrangler tow a boat?

All of the available Wrangler engines are designed to tow a maximum of 3,500 pounds. That means that with the proper equipment, you should be able to tow a light boat. However, keep in mind that the towing capacity can be affected by factors like the amount of cargo and the weight of the passengers that you're carrying. Our Wyoming, MI area team is happy to help you figure out the best Wrangler for your boat and your specific driving needs.

Can the Jeep Wrangler be flat towed?

Yes. Because the Wrangler has four-wheel drive, it's safe to flat-tow it behind an RV or another vehicle. To keep your Wrangler safe, be sure to check the manual carefully and follow all instructions for hardware, gear settings, and more.

Does the Jeep Wrangler have Apple CarPlay®?

Yes. You can link your phone to Apple CarPlay® using the Uconnect® system. When you do, you'll see a listing of your iPhone apps on the Wrangler's touchscreen; that way, you can use them safely and without the need to hold your phone as you drive.

How much does the Jeep Wrangler weigh?

The weight of the Wrangler depends on the model you choose. The Wrangler North Edition, for example, weighs 4,617 pounds. The smaller Wrangler Rubicon Recon, on the other hand, weighs 4,145 pounds. Keep in mind that the options you choose, including the four-wheel drive system, can affect this weight.

How many seats does the Jeep Wrangler have?

The Wrangler offers between four and five seats. The number of seats varies with the options you choose. In general, two-door Wranglers have four seats, while four-door Wranglers have five seats. In the five-seat models, the fifth seat is a smaller middle seat on the second row; it's most comfortable for a child or a smaller adult.

Does the Jeep Wrangler have adaptive cruise control?

Yes, adaptive cruise control is an available feature. This system enables you to choose a following distance when you activate cruise control. As the flow of traffic changes, the Wrangler changes your speed to maintain that distance. That way, you can stay in cruise without activating and resuming the feature.

Does the Jeep Wrangler have Android Auto™?

Yes. The Android Auto™ feature works in combination with the Uconnect® touchscreen. It displays your phone apps on the screen, so you can operate them without holding onto your device as you drive. Keep in mind that in order to use this feature, you need to have an Android phone with the Lollipop 5.0 operating system or higher. You'll also need to have the Android Auto™ app on your phone.
