The driving position in the Wrangler is tall and upright. Very much reminiscent of driving something like an old Defender or Mitsubishi L200. That’s not to say it’s not comfortable though. The windscreen is almost completely vertical, which means that the vantage point is great.
The visibility is actually amazing because of the huge windows that populate the entirety of the car. Despite its sheer size, you also become accustomed to the width of the car quite easily. And manoeuvring is aided even further by the sensors and impressive reversing camera. The only thing that you must remember is that the grille doesn’t actually mark the front of the car, there’s several inches worth of plastic protruding beyond that.
Alongside it’s 8-Speed Automatic gearbox, the Wrangler comes with a proper off-roading gearbox as well, allowing you to switch between 2W, 4WH and 4WL depending on the terrain. And when it comes to taking this car off-road, the Rubicon really will excel. It’s also got a locking dif to further aid abilities. Though, much to our dismay, we didn’t get the chance to put it through it’s paces off-road (bar a very big puddle). That being said, the capabilities of the Rubicon are legend and no doubt will leave very little to be desired for drivers.
