Jeep® Wrangler: What’s New for 2022 | Toronto, ON

The iconic Wrangler has been a part of the Jeep® lineup for decades. The adventurous SUV is known for its outstanding capability and rugged good looks. For 2022, Jeep® has taken the Wrangler to the next level with upgrades inside and out.

One of the most exciting updates for Canada is the availability of the Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon 392 and its explosive 6.4-litre V8 engine that delivers 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. This model offers water traversing up to 82.5 cm as well as improved approach and departure angles, maneuverability, and suspension articulation.

Other than the Rubicon 392 model, new features for the 2022 Wrangler extend from its wheels and paint colours to the advanced technology in the cabin. On the outside, 33-inch tires on 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels are standard while Silver Zynith replaces the outgoing Billet Silver colour. The Uconnect® 4C system with an 8.4-inch touch screen, navigation, and nine Alpine® speakers are standard on Sahara and Rubicon models.

When it comes to comfort, the Wrangler gets its first-ever competition-inspired leather-wrapped steering wheel with aluminum paddle shifters. The wheel has an aggressive rim section for ergonomic comfort as well as extra grip on rough terrain. Also keeping you and your passengers comfortable and secure are the performance-inspired, integrated upper bolsters on the seats.

These are just a few highlights for the 2022 Jeep® Wrangler. If you’d like to know more about what’s new, contact our team or visit us at Downtown CDJR in Toronto, Ontario.

Jeep® Wrangler Earns Canadian Black Book Best Retained Value Award

Wrangler retained value in Toronto, ON

The Jeep® Wrangler is more than just one of the most easily recognizable vehicles in the world – it’s also one of the best at keeping its value. It’s no surprise that the Wrangler recently earned a Canadian Black Book Best Retained Value Award for the 12th year in a row.

The Best Retained Value Awards honours vehicles that have retained the greatest percentage of their original MSRP over the past four years. This program, which has been around for 14 years now, helps consumers decide what vehicles will hold their value better, reducing the total cost of ownership.

“We’re incredibly proud to again accept this award from Canadian Black Book for Best Retained Value,” said David Buckingham, President and CEO, FCA Canada. “Jeep® Wrangler resonates with consumers in both the new and pre-owned market like few other vehicles can, thanks to a unique combination of rugged good looks, unmatched capability, and the offer of open-air freedom.”

For 2021, the awards looked at cars and trucks in 23 categories with the Wrangler earning the top position in the Midsize Crossover/SUV category. It previously competed in the Compact Sport Utility category, but was realigned to this new one because the majority of Wranglers sold in Canada are the four-door model.
