The 2011 Jeep Wrangler offered in three models, Jeep Wrangler Sahara, Rubicon and Sport.
2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport and Sahara models are equipped with the second-generation Command-Trac® NV241 part-time, two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. An available Trac-Lok® limited-slip rear differential provides extra torque and grip during slippery, low-traction situations, such as driving over sand, gravel, snow or ice.
The 2011 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model is equipped with an Off-Road Rock-Trac® NV241 two-speed transfer case with a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio, as well as electric front- and rear-axle lockers, an electronic sway bar disconnect and 32-inch BF Goodrich off-road tires.
The powerplant for all 2011 Jeep Wrangler models is a 3.8-liter V-6 engine producing 202 horsepower (151 kW) and 237 lb.-ft. (321 N•m) of torque, backed by a standard six-speed manual gearbox or an available four-speed automatic transmission.
New 2011 Jeep Wrangler interior highlights include a redesigned instrument panel and new storage areas with improved ergonomics and upgraded materials. A new lockable console and upgraded door armrest areas boast comfortable touch points, while are designed center stack is easier to reach and operate. Heated seats and heated power mirrors are now available and drivers and passengers will enjoy automatic temperature controls and enhanced visibility courtesy of larger rear windows.
All-new steering wheel controls allow the driver to operate the radio, cruise control, handsfree phone and other vehicle functions while keeping hands on the wheel. A new USB device interface connects to storage devices (thumb drives and most MP3 players) for use with the vehicle’s Media Center™, which now includes streaming Bluetooth®audio. Twelve-volt accessory outlets have been added and a new 115-volt outlet is available to provide power similar to AC outlets in the home. Several new Jeep Wrangler colors are available for 2011, including Detonator Yellow, Deep Cherry Red, Sahara Tan, Cosmos Blue and Bright White.
The 2011 Jeep Wrangler’s exterior is notable not only for its styling, but also for its open-air options. The innovative Sunrider® soft top, which includes a sunroof in addition to the full top-down option, is standard, while Jeep’s Freedom Top®, a three-piece modular hardtop—also is available. This system features three panels – left and right front-passenger panels and a rear panel – providing more options for open-air driving.
