2019 Jeep Wrangler Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.1

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler doesn't have the most upscale interior, but that's because it's built with durable materials that will stand up to mud, water, and whatever else you track in during your adventures. The seats are reasonably spacious and comfortable, and a user-friendly infotainment system headlines the features list. Four-door models have more cargo space than most rivals.

  • Even with the available leather, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler's interior does not qualify as plush. The main requirement is durability, which describes the Sport model's cloth seats and the hard plastic surfaces. But there's plenty of versatility." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "The interior of the 2018 edition is nicer than any Wrangler that has come before." -- Autoblog (2018)
  • "Wrangler interiors are much more refined for 2018; especially in higher trim levels like this top-line Rubicon. Note the satin-red dash inserts (part of a trim package) and the handy A-pillar-mounted grab handle visible in the upper left. The new Wrangler's cabin retains that classic Jeep look and feel while significantly upping the overall quality and refinement level (particularly on the Sahara and Rubicon models). Fun design touches abound, such as satin-metal trim and various 'Easter egg' heritage-themed details." -- Consumer Guide (2018)

Seating

The two-door Wrangler seats four people, and the four-door Wrangler Unlimited seats five. Cloth upholstery is standard. Leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel are available. 

The boxy shape of the SUV lets even tall people enjoy plenty of headroom in the Wrangler. The front seats have enough legroom for most people as well. The two-door Wrangler's rear seats are small and tough to access. However, the four-door Wrangler has enough rear-seat space for most adults to ride comfortably.

For securing child safety seats, there are two full sets of LATCH connectors for the Wrangler’s rear outboard seats.

  • The Wrangler's tall, boxy body means headroom is more than adequate in both the front and back seats, but front-seat legroom is rather cramped for extra-tall occupants. The back-seat area is sized for children and very difficult to access on 2-door Wranglers, but it's surprisingly spacious on the longer-wheelbase 4-door version. Average-sized adults will be able to sit in comfort, though the narrow door openings and high step-in can complicate entry and exit." -- Consumer Guide (2018)
  • "Back seat comfort is enhanced with a more reclined seatback, and the cheap seats also get their own heater/air conditioning vents and USB charging outlets." -- New York Daily News (2018)

Interior Features

Standard features in the Wrangler include two 12-volt power outlets, a rearview camera, and the Uconnect infotainment system with a 5-inch touch screen, an eight-speaker audio system, USB and auxiliary ports, and Bluetooth.

Available features include air conditioning, power windows, remote start (in automatic transmission models only), automatic climate control, a 115-volt power outlet, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, cross traffic alert, rear parking sensors, an upgraded Uconnect system with a 7- or 8.4-inch touch screen, navigation, an Alpine audio system, HD Radio, satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

The easy-to-learn Uconnect system features a responsive touch screen and easily navigable menus. The screen is water resistant, so you needn’t worry about it getting damaged, whether you're driving in a drizzle with the top off or hosing out the interior (which the SUV is designed to handle; there are drain plugs if you do choose to do this).

Speaking of taking the top off, the Wrangler is essentially a convertible SUV. It comes with a soft top, and a hardtop is available. Both tops can be removed quickly and easily. The soft top no longer features zippers following this Jeep's 2018 redesign, and the process to take it off is much simpler.

  • "The JL's cabin is thoroughly updated to meet the demands of the 'always connected' 21st century. … The fourth-gen Uconnect system even offers an optional 4G Wi-Fi hot spot so you can surf websites right from your camp table. … A new optional 8.4-inch hi-res touchscreen with pinch and zoom is the largest ever offered on a Wrangler. And, yes, it's been 'mist tested' to endure at least a nonmonsoon amount of rain and keep right on displaying." -- Automobile Magazine (2018)
  • "The 8.4-inch system worked well in our test drives; it has clear graphics and large virtual buttons, quick response times, and a broad range of helpful features. … We especially appreciated the Off Road Pages information, which includes a Pitch & Roll graphic readout for extreme off-roading." -- Consumer Guide (2018)
  • "The Wrangler is fundamentally a convertible; that's part of its appeal. … The accursed zippers are gone, and the side windows are now attached with a series of channels and retainers. The roof itself has never been easier to operate; even on a four-door Unlimited, I'm able to raise and lower the top in moments. It's a beautifully engineered piece." -- Autoweek (2018)

Cargo

The two-door Wrangler provides 12.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up and 46.9 cubic feet with them folded down. The four-door Wrangler Unlimited has 31.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. With the rear seats folded down, cargo space expands to 72.4 cubic feet.

The Wrangler has below-average cargo space, but the Wrangler Unlimited’s max capacity is one of the highest in the class. The Unlimited also features an under-floor storage bin and a decent amount of small-item storage space in the cabin.

  • "The new Wrangler is also more practical thanks to longer armrests, bigger storage areas, and a center console bin with 2-tier storage that can now accommodate an iPad. Both the glovebox and console bin are lockable and there's more hidden storage under the cargo floor." -- New York Daily News (2018)
  • Small-items storage isn't great overall – the glovebox is stingy, and the center console is on the small side as well – but there are some handy touches nonetheless. There's a small storage bin underneath the rear cargo-area floor on 4-door models, and the front seat backs can be equipped with military-style MOLLE (for Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment) panels for accessory attachment." -- Consumer Guide (2018)
