Optional four-wheel drive can be coupled with larger 32-inch BFGoodrich off-road tires, an electrically controlled front anti-roll bar that disconnects to increase wheel travel, locking front and rear differentials, and a 4.0:1 transfer-gear ratio. To counter any fears regarding roll-over incidents, the Wrangler comes standard with stability control with roll mitigation built in. The four-door Wrangler Unlimited is expected to reach showrooms this fall and will likely cost $21,000 for a basic version and top $30,000 for one equipped with all the off-road goodies.
