Ask around, everyone has a Jeep adventure of some sort, especially around these parts. The Jeep Wrangler is an icon, and if we are honest, a must-have if you plan an adventure off the beaten path. I had the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara, an extraordinary machine that takes any Jeep experience to the next level. I owned a 1989 Jeep Wrangler when I was around 21, and it was probably the most fun I’ve ever had owning a vehicle. With that being said, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara promptly brought me back to those moments, which led to a weekend of fun, exploring and a bit of adventure.
The Wrangler is tried and true, a reliable SUV that has been around since before SUVs were even a “thing.” The Wrangler is a purpose-built SUV, offered in two- and four-door body styles with a variety of trim packages and accessories available.
The Wrangler Unlimited Sahara is powered by a 285-hp, 3.6-liter V6 which is paired with an 8-speed transmission, all while rocking Jeep’s reliable and functional four-wheel drive system. This bad boy was ready to roll over, through and into whatever was in front of it. Although it’s not the greatest on gas, it’s worth the sacrifice if you are looking for an experience and some fun.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara comes with a modern interior, nothing like the minimalist, utilitarian designs of the past. Instead, Jeep has focused on a comfort and quality-forward approach, offering all the creature comforts we’ve come to expect. From its handy USB charging ports to an immersive sound system, Jeep has really stepped it up from the designs of the past. The Sahara model features a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Jeep has also added a new level of comfort from the seating to the materials used throughout the interior. However, the best part was the automatic sliding top that opens up the cabin to the world around you!
The new Wrangler Unlimited Sahara is incredibly fun, functional and exciting to say the least. For those looking for the perfect adventure and outdoor companion, this is it. Tough, rugged, comfortable and spacious, the Wrangler Unlimited Sahara is sure to take you places you never would have gone. Thanks to the good folks at Phillips Jeep for allowing me to put their Wrangler to the test. It was more fun than I had imagined!
