Jeep® Wrangler named ‘4X4 of the Year

29 January 2019

The legendary Jeep Wrangler continues to demonstrate its award-winning credentials after winning the UK’s 4×4 Magazine Special Off-Road Award in the magazine’s 4×4 of the Year honours.

The recognition comes after the specialist off-road driving publication’s panel of expert judges put the new fourth generation model of the iconic Jeep Wrangler above some extremely capable competitors in its class.

The Off-Road Award special category concentrates solely on a vehicle’s off-road performance, a Jeep Wrangler attribute that the judging panel was quick to applaud.

 The new Jeep Wrangler, which is just as happy on city streets as it is off the beaten path, brings together Jeep’s legendary off-road prowess with superior on-road comfort, authentic style and state-of-the-art technology.

 Every year, a panel of experts from 4×4 Magazine  – one of the world’s most renowned 4×4 specialist publications – tests a large number of four-wheel-drive vehicles from the world’s manufacturers. As well as scoring the cars for their on-road driving features, the jury take them on a tough off-road evaluation course before delivering their verdicts across a number of classes, including Small, Medium and Large SUV, Performance SUV, and Best Off-Roader. Special Awards include Best Value, Off-Road Award and 4×4 Manufacturer of the Year.
