2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Drove from Williston, ND to Jackson Hole WY so terrain was a combination of flats, hills and mountainous. On the flats, the Jeep had no problem holding the speed limit using the cruise control. In the hills and mountainous areas, it down shifted 1 or 2 gears to maintain the speed limit. Our best fuel economy was 24.3 MPG (no wind, no A/C, highway speed limit less than 60 MPH); our worst fuel economy was 17.7 MPG (10 MPH head wind, A/C running, highway speed limit 75 MPH). 95% of the mileage was highway. Fuel mileage was hand calculated (miles driven divided by gallons to fill), not based on vehicle computer.

Favorite Features

- Improved fuel economy over previous engines/drive lines - speed automatic (although shifts could be firmer) - Ulimited wheel base; smooth ride with additional storage area - Interior quality; fit and finish & road noise is very minimal - Infinity radio with navigation and Sirius - 3-piece hard top with body color match; very easy to remove front panels - Power windows and mirrors - Driver’s seat has elevator feature

Suggested Improvements

- Torque – could use lower end torque. Power is good above 4k RPM - Front seats are firm and cannot recline when rear seats are folded down - Rear seats do not recline - Side mirrors are small and low
