2015 Jeep Wrangler History
As we all know, back in the 1987. Jeep Wrangler came out as a new Jeep YJ, and replaced rugged Jeep CJ as the more comfortable version. Since then the prime concern when designing a new Wrangler is the comfort of its cabin. We think the new 2016 model will be no different. It will also have one of the best and most recognizable Jeep features, removable tops. When removing them it opens the whole cabin and lets the sunshine in in a way that can only be seen on Jeep vehicles.

New 2015 Jeep Wrangler will keep its still modern Pentastar V-6 and A580. It will come with automatic 5 speed transmission and it will pull out 285 horsepower and 260 pound feet of torque. With decreased body weight new Jeep Wrangler will be faster and much more fuel efficient then the last few models. We believe it will be able to reach 60 mph in less then 7 seconds.
Release Date and Price
New light weight 2015 Jeep Wrangler is still a concept and there are no clues about the release date or the price of the new vehicle. We can only give a guess, that it will cost around $25,000 for the basic version, .
Chrysler became much more innovative since it joined Fiat and in the future we expect some great Italian designer miracles to be performed on an American classic cars which will make them selling better on American market as well as in Europe.
