The Jeep Wrangler brings an old-school appeal in every possible sense.

As evident from the design, the nostalgic cues of the original Jeep of the last century is still intact, thanks to the celebrated grille coupled with the rounded, old-school sealed-beam headlamps. The large and protruding dull black front bumpers, together with the jut out wheel arches give the SUV its macho looks. The perfectly angled pillars and window layouts, along with the outside visible door hinges bring an old-school appeal to the SUV.
