The new JK Wrangler has a modern appearance, yet retains the classic utilitarian image of the oldest current production model in the world.
Being a new model, the JK has certainly had its share of issues, but from an off-road standpoint it is a very strong and reliable vehicle
Braking performance is good, the use of the new traction control and ABS systems seems very effective from a safety standpoint and even boosts traction. The crash tests (and owner experiences) of the JK has been extremely impressive.
While not a reference system in the automotive world, the optional Infinity speaker system is very strong, especially for an open air Jeep. The Nav/Mygig options are quite good as well.
The JK has a nice selection of color choices, and generally the appearance of the finish is quite good, again relative to previous Jeep Wranglers.
