The Wrangler has been right at the top of the top 10 off road vehicles for years and the 2014 version of the Wrangler which is just about to be launched seems to do no harm to this claim. While the company has kept pretty mum about the 2014 Wrangler, tidbits of information have been coming out from here and there. One of the main disappointments for some and also the main cause of happiness for some is that Jeep plans to keep the Wrangler unchanged in its design and purpose at least till 2016. However, it does not mean that there will be no modifications in the upcoming versions and models.
