Which Jeep Wrangler Configuration is Right for Me?

One of the best parts of buying a new Jeep is all of the options and modifications you can change and add to make the vehicle 100% your own to match your personality; the Jeep lifestyle is for everyone, and the options and trimmings available prove that inclusivity. But with that inclusivity comes intimidation, confusion, and hesitation, simply because there are so many different end results and it’s difficult to know which model is right for your wants and needs.

Fear not, friends! We’ve compiled this quick and easy list to go over the different configurations of the Jeep Wrangler so that you can be better informed of what’s available, what each model’s strength is, and to help you make a confident decision so you can drive off of our Ottawa Jeep dealership with a smile on your face.

If you’re ready to hit the roads and dirt trails in a new Jeep Wrangler, but aren’t sure which one of the 12 to get yet, let’s take a look at the configurations, clear any confusion, and simplify the process!


If you want a Jeep that you can take off-road, just get behind the wheel, and drive to your heart’s content, you may like what you find in the sport group. Get ready for manual shifting to really feel the power of this workhorse and the 4-wheel drive that will let you take on any terrain. That doesn’t mean these 4 variant models don’t have their bells and whistles; they come equipped with the Uconnect® 5-inch display for quick access to cameras, entertainment, and more.

Mid tier

Get the V6 engine revving and ready to tackle the roads, but sit comfortably gripping the leather wrapped steering wheel. Say hello to Variable Valve Timing and Electronic Stop and Start to keep your engine running smoothly for even longer and enjoy a comfortable level of luxury, especially with the 7-inch model of the Uconnect® system. In this tier, you’ll see the following models:

  • Black and Tan
  • Willy
  • Freedom
  • Sahara
  • Sahara Altitude

If you want a reliable middle ground between off-road toy and daily commuter, you’ll like what you see in the mid tier.

Top tier

Want to feel like you’re driving to work in a luxury hotel room, or would you like to experience the “glamping” of off-road excursions? You’ll want to take a look at the models in the top tier, including:

  • North Edition
  • Rubicon
  • Rubicon Recon

These models come equipped with cloth bucket seats for ultimate comfort, Alpine premium audio systems so you can have an unrivaled music or podcast listening experience, standard performance suspension with gas shocks, or the souped up 4-wheel drive system known as the 4:1 Rock Trac. Choosing from this class will be like having a home away from home whether you’re headed to the office, or to the great outdoors.
