How does this newcomer compare to a legendary predecessor?

When there is greatness, one would hope something even greater arrives to surpass it, and Jeep has done that with the release of the fourth-generation JL Wrangler. Called "the most-capable SUV currently on the market," by Jeep's CEO Mike Manley, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL has continued to improve upon Jeep's capabilities and performance without straying away from the legacy and tradition of a Jeep Wrangler. Here at Bournival Jeep, we maintain a well-stocked inventory of new Jeep Wrangler models from which to choose, including the new Jeep Wrangler JL.
