How capable is the 2022 Wrangler?
When talking about off-road capabilities, the Jeep Wrangler is most likely the first vehicle that comes to mind. This is because the Wrangler is specially designed to handle some of the most rugged trails the world has to offer. The capability begins with the three available 4×4 drivetrains. Command-Trac part-time 4×4 is standard and gives drivers the ability to shift from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive with high and low gearings. Selec-Trac is standard for some trim levels. This full-time system will automatically shift into and out of 4WD depending on the road surface and conditions. The Wrangler Rubicon comes standard with Rock-Trac 4×4 which is a full time 4×4 system and supplies world-renowned off-road capability by shifting into and out of 4WD when a loss of traction is detected. Rock-Trac also utilizes a front sway bar disconnect to improve wheel articulation to crawl over rocks, electronic locking front and rear differentials, and a 4:1 transfer case gear ratio for low speed crawling control.
