With Jeep's hybrid Wrangler officially out on the market we take the time to bench build and price one on the show, and cover our thoughts on this futuristic twist to the old design. Will it give Tesla and others a run for their money? Both John and Keith have strong opinions on this one, but one thing is for sure, we would be willing testers if Jeep wants to send one our way!
