Jeep Wrangler Sport S 2019 review: snapshot

The JL Wrangler is an all-new design and comes with plenty of new features. (Rubicon variant shown).

The Sport S is the new entry trim level to the new JL Wrangler line-up, with list pricing now $9,960 more expensive than the old Sport strarting price at $48,950.

The JL Wrangler is an all-new design and comes with plenty of new features, so it arguably represents similar value to the JK.

The Sport S is available in either two or four-door bodystyles, with the four-door costing $4500 more at $53,450.

The Sport S standard feature list includes cloth seats and a soft roof with plastic windows, but does have a leather steering wheel, carpet on the floor and alloy wheels, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for the first time, albeit in the smaller 7.0-inch multimedia screen. It’s also got auto headlights and rear parking sensors.

Note that the Sport S won’t get AEB and blind-spot monitoring until closer to the end of 2019.  

Like all JL Wranglers bar the diesel version of the top-spec Rubicon, the Sport S comes with a revised version of the JK’s 3.6-litre petrol V6 engine which produces the same 209kW/347Nm as before, but the two-door’s official combined fuel consumption figure is now 9.6L/100km (9.7L/100km four-door) thanks to weight savings, a new eight-speed automatic transmission and the addition of a stop-start system.
