Autoblog reviews the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Autoblog.com is one of my favorite websites for automotive news and reviews.  Their staff may not have any experienced off-roaders, but that doesn't mean they can't write a very entertaining review of the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport.  Follow the link to view a couple short video clips of their real-world off-road test of the Jeep at the Coal Creek OHV Area.


This may have been the commuter-car version of the Wrangler, but even with open differentials and weenie tires, it still demonstrated its superiority over any other off-road-oriented vehicle on the market.  A few key quotes summed up their opinion of the Wrangler:
The Wrangler remains one of the most capable off-road machines money can buy straight from the factory, and years of abuse, research and development from Jeep loyalists and engineers have turned it into a turn-key trail boss.
Make no mistake, this is quite possibly the best vehicle produced by an American manufacturer today. It excels at its given purpose in a way that's simply unparalleled by other products.
In a way, Chrysler has managed to execute a very Porsche-like development philosophy with the Wrangler. The iteration we see today is the culmination of decades of evolution instead of pathetic niche filling. This is the 911 of the off-road world, and its showroom capability is a testament to what Chrysler has accomplished.
Even with 3.21 gears and open differentials on both ends, the Wrangler Sport is an unstoppable force of nature and a suitable heir to the throne.
With the base model so capable right out of the box, imagine their opinion of the Wrangler's off-road ability if they had driven a Rubicon model!  At least they proved that even the Sport model is a true off-road vehicle.
