Design of Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
Functionality is the name of the game for the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and its design helps to optimize its utility. Sporting four doors and enough seats to fit five passengers, the Unlimited helps support larger groups of people on off-road expeditions. Full-metal doors, 16-inch steel wheels, with on/off-road tires, skid plates, and a full-sized spare tire are standard on all Wrangler Unlimited models. The Wrangler Unlimited has multiple roof options, a standard soft roof and an optional hard roof which also features removable panels above the front seats. The Wrangler Unlimited cultivates a sense of sturdy rigidity with its exterior design. Several signature accoutrements, like a fold-down windshield, removable doors, removable top and half-doors, seven-slot grille, and exposed hinges, help the Wrangler Unlimited both create and fulfill this rugged persona. The Wrangler Unlimited also comes with a variety of available features to keep the extra passengers entertained and comfortable while giving the driver convenient access to controls and information. Some of these optional features include nine-speaker Alpine sound system, a trip computer, Uconnect touchscreen, and a navigation system accessible from a 6.5 inch touchscreen. Put this all together and the Wrangler Unlimited fulfills all that you'd expect from a Jeep while providing it with its own nuanced identity.
