2017 Jeep Wrangler Won’t Make Everyone Happy

By  | 

Jeep happens to be working hard to ensure that their vehicles get off the production line fast but with the arrival of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler not everyone will be happy as it is going to mean more work following an update at the plant.

To make the 2017 Jeep Wrangler the Toledo plant is going to have to be updated as the Wrangler is going to be made part aluminum and this means new machines need to be installed.

Jeep decided to go the same way as Ford did with the Ford F-150 in that part of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler will be made from aluminium.

While this may be good news for Jeep it may not be good news for employees as they are going to have to work even harder to make the 2017 Jeep Wrangler.

    Aluminum parts will not make up for the fact the whole wrangler platform is antiquated. The suspension design is at least 40 years old. Just swapping in coil springs instead of leaf springs didn’t really do much at that was the last ‘improvement’ and it was done in the mid 1990’s. The old drag link steering is just as antiquated. Look at a King of the Hammers vehicle that is direction Wranglers need to go. The best KOK vehicles have independent front suspension and hydraulic steering. Put a rack and pinion in the modern Wrangler from goodness sake! Don’t even get me started on the lack of safety features and buck board ride characteristics. All this from a $25K+ vehicle. My 1990 Cherokee is as comfortable and capable as a 2017 Wrangler.

    You’re entirely missing the point why people buy a wrangler. If I wanted a modern, comfortable off-road vehicle I’d buy a Range Rover, a Toyota or a VW Touareg race edition. If you want a fun car with off-road capabilities the Wrangler is the only one out there where you can take the roof and doors and store them in your garage while being out doing donuts in the mud.

    How about the falling apart 9-speed automatic transmission? Fix it again!! Google it.
