The legendary Jeep Wrangler 4- door with soft top
The 4x4 SUV is, without a doubt, an icon in the midsize SUV market, especially given how it has managed to adapt and remain fresh since 1987. Not only does it offer several off-road skills, it is increasingly popular and can be found everywhere, including our neighbor’s garage entrance. Yet it stands out and is available in a myriad of different versions.
The Jeep Wrangler convertible offers a sublime driving experience. Your dealership for the greater Montreal area, Champlain Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, gives you more information about all of the different options available to you.
With its numerous versions (8 in all for the 4- door Jeep SUV) and its Hybrid 4xe model, with every passing year, it is simply becoming more and more of an icon. But what makes this midsize SUV stand out even more is the soft top on the Jeep Wrangler 4- door version.
Roof options for your Wrangler
The Jeep 4x4 SUV is not only attractive thanks to its different versions and powertrains (5 in all), its roof is, without a doubt, a very unique element that helps it stands out. In fact, as the owner of a Jeep Wrangler, a multitude of options for outdoor driving becomes available to you. Here are three different ways to take advantage of the great outdoors:
- The Sunrider soft top
- The 3- panel hard top
- The Sky One Touch power top
The soft top on the Jeep Wrangler 4 door
First things first, there are no other convertible SUVs on the market, except for the Bronco. On top of this, options are much less developed on this model and experiences remain quite limited.
But if we get back to the 2022 Jeep Wrangler, its soft top is quite advantageous and only takes a few minutes to remove. Easy to use, you can remove it without having to resort to your toolbox. Moreover, this roof covers the full rear and front portions of the vehicle. Removing the portion of the roof over the driver’s seat only takes a few seconds, and putting it back is just as quick and efficient.
The standard offered Sunrider soft top remains the most affordable option if you wish to take full advantage of the sun’s rays with your hair in the wind! The 2022 Jeep Wrangler relies on a soft roof that is efficient, affordable and easy to remove and put back into position. It is standard offered on all versions of the Jeep SUV, except for the Sahara Unlimited, which comes standard with the three panel hard top.
In short, the Jeep Wrangler 4- doors with the soft top remains the most popular of the lot. In fact, the Sunrider allows you to remove the roof from the front of the vehicle very quickly. Made from premium twill fabric, this soft top protects you from the elements.
3 panel hard top
It will also be possible for you to enjoy a 3- panel hard top and feel as though you are shielded from the elements and the weather. With the added protection offered to you by your hard top, which is equipped with a rear window with wiper/fluid and defrost, your new 2022 Wrangler will take you wherever your heart is calling.
The hard top, made up of three panels or sections, allows you to easily remove the two front sections, while the rear section will need to be removed with someone else’s help. This is because it is heavier than the two front sections.
The main advantage of a hard top is that the interior is much quieter. This will allow for easier conversations with other passengers. While the soft top on the Jeep Wrangler 4- door only takes a few minutes to remove, the Freedom Top hard top can take a few extra minutes, given that it requires more manoeuvers and manipulation.
Finally, you will have access to a hard top as standard equipment on the Unlimited Sport Altitude, Unlimited Sahara and Unlimited Sahara Altitude models.
In short, this top’s main advantage would be the fact that it presents as a traditional top, except for the fact that you will have the possibility of removing it when the weather permits.
The Sky One Touch power top
Alexandre Crépault, in the L’Annuel de l’automobile 2022, describes it as follows: “The Sky One Touch power top is actually a huge opening canvas panel that is activated at the touch of a button. This allows us to experience the same sensation of freedom we’d associate to convertibles”.
In other words, the Sky One Touch power top will allow you to remove the front or rear portion of the top at the touch of a button. As many have mentioned, “the portion of the top that opens towards the rear is very wide, which means that you will have a greater sensation of freedom than the one offered by the removable hard top”.
This very versatile option is offered on several versions, including the Wrangler 4xe (hybrid version).
In short, the Jeep Wrangler 4- door soft top, the 3- panel hard top or the Sky One Touch power top all offer undeniable advantages; in order to determine which is best, everything will depend on each person’s preferences.
Here are the advantages offered by each, at a glance:
|Soft Top||Hard Top||Sky One Touch power top|
|Economical||Offers all of the advantages of a traditional top||Comes down at the touch of a button|
|Very easy to remove/put back||Quiet interior||Simple and practical|
|Inexpensive||Can be removed when the weather permits||Can be opened or closed even while driving|
In conclusion, the Sunrider soft top and the power top are made of fabric or canvas that give the Jeep SUV a stunning style, but also the flexibility of finding yourself quickly in a Jeep convertible. As for the 3- panel hard top, it gives you the same advantages of a traditional top, while allowing you to opt for a convertible mode when the weather permits and the sun is out.
