The Jeep Wrangler is a compact and mid-size (Wrangler Unlimited models) four-wheel drive off-road and SUV, manufactured by Jeep, and is currently in its third generation. he Wrangler debuted in 1986 as a new model to fill the void left by the discontinuance of the famous Jeep model (CJ), was revised in 1996, and completely redesigned in 2007. The newer Wrangler was constructed with a grille which angled out from the top, and then continued in a straight line from the midway point, toward the bottom. This decreased the hood length, while increasing the length of the fenders. In more recent models, this angle has been lowered more toward the bottom of the grille.
