Jeep Wrangler scoops top off-road honour for second consecutive year!

The legendary Jeep Wrangler continues to demonstrate its award-winning credentials after taking 4x4 Magazine's 4x4 of the Year, Hardcore class for the second year running.

The award, which goes specifically to the four-door Wrangler, comes from the specialist publication's panel of expert judges, who put the rugged US-built off-roader above some extremely capable competitors.

In the same awards, Jeep's new Grand Cherokee received a Highly Commended accolade in the Premiums category.

In awarding it top honours, the 4x4 of the Year competition judges praised the Wrangler's value for money, comfortable interior, off-roading ability, towing prowess and iconic design.

"Jeep Wrangler remains 4x4 Magazine's Hardcore Class champion. It effortlessly demonstrates its off-road capabilities with immense power and torque, while delivering a gorgeously low, first crawler gear for when finesse is needed," says Nigel Fryatt, editor, 4x4 Magazine.

"All this in a comfortable, well equipped interior. Our only real criticism? There should be more of them around."

"It's the classic 4x4 vehicle that is instantly recognisable the world over. The Jeep Wrangler is the essence of what Jeep stands for and we're honoured to receive a top award such as the Hardcore 4x4 of the Year," says Steve Zanlunghi, managing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK.
