For 2007, the Jeep Wrangler gets more power, namely a 3.8-liter V6 engine that makes 205 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque, representing a gain of 15 horses and five lb.-ft. of twist. Last year’s standard four-cylinder engine is gone. A six-speed manual transmission is also new for the 2007 Wrangler, though a four-speed automatic continues as an option. Second to the massaged styling, perhaps the most notable change to the Wrangler is the purportedly improved performance on pavement with a 100-percent stiffer frame, 50-percent stiffer body, improved suspension, a two-inch longer wheelbase, and a 3.5-inch wider track. Jeep has also added sound-deadening materials it claims will reduce cabin noise by more than 20 percent. Standard on the 2007 Jeep Wrangler is an electronic stability program (ESP), as well as four-wheel-disc antilock brakes which provide wheel lockup during soft surface maneuvering – that should set true off-roaders at ease. Optional features include side impact airbags.
