In April of this year, the new JL 2018 Jeep Wrangler found 29,776 new homes in the US. The Toyota Corolla, the best-selling car in the history of the world, found 25,896 new owners. The Honda Civic? 28,399 sales last month. Only vehicle to beat it? The Toyota Camry, and by only 72 units.
How’s that for an answer?
Why the appeal of the new Wrangler? Why so much want? The latest JL generation of the Jeep is the best-ridding, best-driving, most modern interpretation of the legendary truck ever. I reviewed the JL late last year and can confirm that it is very good. For the first time since I test drove my first Wrangler some 20 years ago, I’d consider purchasing one.
The highlights include a snazzy yet classic interpretation of the truck’s undying design, a new turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, an 8-speed automatic transmission, new roof options, and loads more tech.
This momentum may not last but for the moment, Jeep’s got one of the best-selling cars in the country.
