What’s the difference between the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sport S and the Unlimited Sport S?

Differences between the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sport S and Unlimited Sport S

The Jeep, like denim jeans and state fairs, is an American icon. It was there for Allied soldiers in WWII, where it proved its mettle. Since then, the precursor to the Wrangler model—the CJ series—has been commercially available, modernizing with each decade, but still retaining the signature Wrangler look. There’s an indescribable desire to climb in and drive when you see a Wrangler. It looks as good at the beach with top and doors off as it does plowing through the snow or covered in mud.

Now is a great time to own a Jeep Wrangler, but first you have to decide from among its many available packages. We compare two of our most popular Wrangler trims, the Sport S and the Unlimited Sport S.

With that said, here are the differences between the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sport S and the Unlimited Sport S.

Sport S and Unlimited Sport S Differences

Here are the major differences:

MSRP $31,245 $34,745
Fuel Tank and Range (City/Hwy) 17.5 gal; 297.5/437.5 mi 21.5 gal; 365.5/494.5 mi

Packages/Groups All standard available packages All standard available packages, Dual Top Group

The differences only seem subtle. The Unlimited Sport S is more than 1.5 feet longer than the Sport S, giving rear passengers more comfortable seating or—if you use the back seats alongside the cargo area—allowing for more storage. If you’ve ever tried to remove hunting gear or work tools from the back of a 2-door vehicle, then you know how nice a 4-door can be. The surplus fuel tank capacity gives you just under 70 extra miles of driving, which is great for road trips or extended backwoods time without having to worry about fueling up. Being able to switch between a hard and soft top is also great for those hot summer days with rain or bad weather.
