Jeep's old-school off-roader facelifted and gets five doors for the first time
7 August 2005

The all-American Jeep brand may be moving away from hardcore off-road vehicles to more 'lifestyle' 4x4s, but these exclusive spy shots prove that it isn't deserting its roots.

Next year, this replacement for its old-school Wrangler appears for the first time, and for the first time in its history, the Wrangler will be available as a five-door in addition to the traditional three-door format. The move should add appeal to the growing number of buyers opting for off-roaders as practical family cars.

These first pictures of the four-door show that the company isn’t tampering with the long-standing Wrangler styling, with the upright boxy stance remaining for the car that will be revealed in the next 12 months before arriving here in 2007.

Our Verdict

Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler is the classic all-American heavy-duty off-roader. It is brilliant off road, but compromised on the tarmac
