2018 Jeep Wrangler Vincentric Best Value in Canada Awards
Posted on January 18, 2021
The all-new Jeep Wrangler has been recognized as a 2018 Vincentric Best Value in Canada in the Compact SUV-Crossover category.
For over a decade, Vincentric has provided data, knowledge, and insight to the automotive industry by identifying and applying the many aspects of automotive ownership costs, separately for US and Canadian consumers. Many of the top automotive websites rely upon Vincentric data. The data that's collected is used to determine the winners of the Vincentric Best Value Award, which are earned by cars, trucks, and SUVs in 32 separate categories.
The all-new, award-winning 2018 Jeep Wrangler, unveiled late last year and available now at North York Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM, is the most capable and recognized vehicle. The new Wrangler builds on its legendary history with an unmatched combination of authentic Jeep design, Jeep Trail Rated off-road capabilities, and a host of innovative safety and advanced technology features.
2018 is the seventh year of the Best Value in Canada awards. To select its winners, Vincentric scrutinizes objective data on every vehicle sold in each segment of the Canadian market, factoring in ownership costs ranging from maintenance and repairs, to fuel consumption, insurance, and depreciation.
Tagged by Jeep as the most capable SUV ever, the 2018 Wrangler delivers even more legendary Jeep Trail Rated 4x4 capability, a modern design that stays true to the original design includes an instantly recognizable keystone-shaped grille, iconic round headlamps and square tail lamps, improved aerodynamics, a convenient fold-down windshield for off-road purists, even more open-air freedom, and dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations.
The 2018 Wrangler also features unmatched capability with Command-Trac and Rock-Trac 4x4 systems, next-generation Dana axles, new Selec-Trac full-time two-speed transfer case, Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, Trac-Lok limited-slip differential and 33-inch off-road tires. It also features industry-leading ground clearance and approach, breakover and departure angles along with unmatched crawl ratios. It also has the ability to ford up to 30 inches of water.
The drivetrain has also been developed for optimal off-road performance. An all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with efficient eTorque technology is standard, with the available 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with Engine Stop-Start (ESS). In response to overwhelming consumer demand a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 with ESS will be available in 2019. There are two transmission options: a new eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual.
While its appearance and off-road capabilities are traditional Jeep attributes, the 2018 Wrangler also comes equipped with a fourth-generation Uconnect system that includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and the choice of 5.0, 7.0- or 8.4-inch touchscreens with pinch-and-zoom capability and is packed with more than 75 available advanced safety and security features.
Summer is upon us and there's no better time to enjoy driving or off-road motoring in a 2018 Jeep Wrangler this Summer. So, when you're ready for your next purchase, stop into CarHub and take one for a spin. You may not want to bring it back!
