How the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Improved Since the 1995 Wrangler YJ


In 1995, the Jeep Wrangler YJ was released. Despite its square headlights that had fans of the traditional round lights rioting in the street, it was the top-of-the-line off-roading model at the time.

Twenty years later, and it still is-- or its modern day descendant is. The Fast Lane Car brings both vehicles to a muddy, gullied trail to see which is the reigning champion of off-road performance.

The modern machine is by every measure a better vehicle. It is safer, has more interior comforts, and it handles off-road conditions with far more ease. It's aided not only by mechanical advancements in suspension, but by computer assistance, which can automatically sense slipping wheels, and instantly fine-tune performance for different terrains.

However, as one reviewer balks, it's almost too fool-proof. For the strategist, who gets more joy in thinking through how to tackle an obstacle, the older model is more fun.
