In Its second generation, the vehicle may look identical, but upon further inspection, there are noticeable differences mainly to the underpinnings, engine and exterior as well as a few minor changes to the options.
The front end of these models is now flatter and sport rounder headlights. Certain regions did retain the older shape up until 1999. Around the back, there are differences while the rest remains pretty similar.
Base models once again are fitted with fabric seats, necessary instruments, removable doors and manual accessories. Trim levels include SE, X Sport and Sahara. All came with various options including a radio tuner, cassette player, CD player and a premium sound system. Both the soft-top and hardtop versions are available in this generation.
Various special editions are available: 60th Anniversary, Apex Edition, Columbia Edition, Freedom Edition, Golden Eagle, Rocky Mountain Edition, Sahara Edition Ultimate Rubicon, Willy’s Edition Rubicon and Tomb Raider Edition.
Some of the trims were limited production models, and all had their very own decals, equipment and trim pieces. The Tomb Raider Edition is allegedly the most sought after models and not because the die-hard adventurer that is Tomb Raider drove one in the films but the equipment it came standard with.
Limited to 1,001 with some experts claiming 1,050 units were built. These models are coated in Bright Silver paint, 16-inch forged alloys on each corner, Tomb Raider badging, diamond-plated bumper guard, stock Mopar accessories including the roof mounted light bar, Tomb Raider badges, red seat belts, and Dark Slate fabric seats. These models fetch a retail price of AED 109,459!
Powering all four wheel once again is a choice for two four-cylinder motors this time, and an inline six cylinder engine mated to either a manual or automatic gearbox. Four wheel drive is once again standard across the range.

Now in its third generation, gone are the manual windows that can be removed with ease. Instead, the windows are conventionally placed behind the door panel as they would be in any conventional vehicle.
Two-door models return with either a hardtop or soft-top. This generation also introduced the world to a much-anticipated four-door version which can now fit five people instead of four.
Base models are now equipped with the same setup as before but also incorporate the winding mechanism for the doors, radio tuner, CD player, 17-inch rims and central locking. Optional extras include leather seats, Bluetooth, media inputs, climate control dials, trailer coupling and heated seats.
Over the years, the Wrangler received minor updates mainly to the interior with the exterior staying true to its roots.
No more four-cylinder motor exists in these models as the V6 carries the torch on. There is a four cylinder diesel version available in select regions. Power is channelled to all four wheels via a manual or automatic gearbox.
