“Iconic” is kind of an overused term these days, but in the case of the Jeep Wrangler, it’s totally appropriate. The Wrangler is a direct descendant of a bloodline that goes back farther than most any modern-day vehicle can claim. The star-spangled WWII heritage, the long-running (and tumultuous) history, the unmistakable profile and styling details, and, of course, the legendary off-road prowess—it’s all part of the mix.
