    • Highway - 21 mpg

There are some vehicles made for streets and highways, and there are others that are ideally suited for off-roading. That's where the Jeep Wrangler comes in. The 2014 Jeep Wrangler may be appealing for rides to the beach and even on it, but if you are struggling through long commutes filled with rush-hour traffic, the rugged ride of the Jeep Wrangler may not be for you.

There are some attributes that could outweigh the rough ride for some car buyers. For instance, the Wrangler can boast of some fuel efficiency, thanks to its 3.6-liter, six-cylinder engine. The Jeep Wrangler is also full of safety features, many of which you won't need navigating through traffic. Some of the safety features include anti-lock brakes, hill-start assist and hill-descent control and a tire-pressure monitoring display system that could be handy if you ride over a nail on your commute home.
