Jeep Wrangler Interior
According to reviewers, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler’s utilitarian cabin is designed to emphasize practicality over style. Test drivers say the Wrangler’s back seats can be cramped for adults, but they report that the Wrangler Unlimited has a bit more space for back-seat passengers. Cargo space in the Wrangler is small for the class, but the Wrangler Unlimited has a competitive amount of cargo room.
- "A more upscale dashboard design retains much of the outgoing model's basic layout - a high-mounted radio, centrally-located window controls and rotary climate control knobs - but uses much richer materials. The interior is still designed to withstand abuse, and can even be hosed out on models with cloth seats, but is more inviting than before." -- Left Lane News
- "Very little about the Jeep Wrangler's interior conveys a sense of elegance or status. The Sport's cloth seats are durable, as are the numerous hard plastics throughout the interior. While it's true the higher trim levels offer leather seats, and a 9-speaker Alpine audio system is available, they add comfort, not outright luxury." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "The 2015 Wrangler's cabin actually has a modicum of style, particularly when the metal-look ‘bright interior accents’ are specified. But at the end of the day, function triumphs over form." -- Edmunds
- "With the soft top, wind, road, and traffic noise intrudes. The hard top calms things a bit, but its hard-surface headliner leaves the cabin vulnerable to empty-drum echoing." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
The two-door Jeep Wrangler seats four, while the four-door Wrangler Unlimited seats five. Cloth seats and a tilt-only steering wheel are standard. Leather upholstery and heated front seats are optional. A few reviewers say the Wrangler’s front seats offer decent comfort. According to some critics, the two-door Wrangler’s rear seats have little head- and legroom and are hard to climb into. However, test drivers report that the Wrangler Unlimited’s back seat is more spacious. Some critics appreciate the good forward visibility from the driver’s seat, thanks to the Wrangler's high, commanding view of the road, but they wish rearward visibility was better.
- “… the 4-door Unlimited models offer plenty of rear-seat room for three people. …” -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Rear passengers will face some challenges in the two-door Wrangler. There's room for only two back there, first of all, and the low bench with limited knee and foot room can make longer trips unpleasant, especially for adults. Access is also awkward unless the top's off, in which case nimble riders can just clamber over the sides." -- Edmunds
- "Lots of headroom and good cabin width. The seats are firm and generally comfortable, though they need more lumbar support." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "Visibility is mixed: High ride height provides the usual eagle's perch, but the rear view has one obstruction after another. The spare tire eats up much of the rear window, the rear wiper mechanism encroaches and the two backseat head restraints (which don't fold down) also conspire to block your view." -- Cars.com (2013)
The 2015 Wrangler comes standard with a soft top, front and rear auxiliary power outlets, satellite radio and an eight-speaker stereo. Available features include power windows, power door locks, a removable hardtop, a USB port, Bluetooth, remote start, navigation, a 6.5-inch touch-screen infotainment system, a nine-speaker Alpine stereo system, air conditioning and automatic climate control.
The 2015 Jeep Wrangler comes with fewer standard features than most SUVs in the class. However, reviewers say the Wrangler’s basic cabin seems practical and appropriate. Test drivers also agree that the Jeep Wrangler has straightforward controls and gauges that are easy to see.
- "Although the upright dashboard provides clear gauges and sensibly laid-out controls, there's a distinct throwback feel when you're driving a Wrangler, evoking a bygone era when car interiors didn't resemble fighter-plane cockpits. Sure, you can have touchscreen navigation if you want it -- albeit Chrysler's older 6.5-inch unit, not the latest 8.4-inch model -- but otherwise, the Wrangler's about as basic as it gets. Honestly, anything more would seem a bit out of place." -- Edmunds
- "Wrangler's cabin is very functional. The gauges are unobstructed and easy to read. The audio and climate controls are easy to reach and use." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
The two-door Jeep Wrangler has 12.8 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and 56.5 cubic feet of space with the rear seat folded. The back seat can also be removed for a maximum of 61.2 cubic feet of cargo space. Wrangler Unlimited models have 31.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats in use and 70.6 cubic feet with them folded. The Wrangler's cargo space is below average for the class. However, the Wrangler Unlimited has a one of the larger overall cargo capacities in the class. The Wrangler’s rear seats can be removed for additional cargo space, but critics say the seats are heavy.
- "There's not much cargo room behind the two-door Wrangler's rear seatbacks (just 12.8 cubic feet), but the four-door Unlimited offers a more useful 31.5 cubic feet, as well as a generous 70.6 cubic feet with those seatbacks folded versus 55.8 cubes in the two-door." -- Edmunds
- "Room is minimal behind the 2-door's rear seat. The rear seat tumbles forward for more space and removes for generous volume. It's heavy, though." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
