Once you finally narrow down the choices and decide on what vehicle you want you’re tasked with which trim option will best suit your specific needs. The 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport and the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport S are great examples of trims from an admirable and exceptional lineup that each provide their own set of bonuses to Regina drivers, which is why we’ve compared them side by side to help making this choice simple.


When it comes to performance, the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport and the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport S both share a lot of the same capabilities. Each of the vehicles are equipped with the same 3.6L V6 engine that can reach as high as 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both vehicles can also tow the same impressive 2,000 pounds.

The differences between the performance of the two vehicles is very subtle, but it does exist. The Sport is outfitted with P225/75R 16 BSW on-/off-road tires and 16-inch slot-spoked styled steel wheels while the Sport S has P255/75R 17 OWL on-/off-road tires with 17-inch Moab Sparkle Silver aluminum wheels. The difference between the two can slightly alter overall performance of the vehicle, as well as the appearance and styling of the wheels.


The available features on both of the vehicles run into the same dilemma faced with performance, they’re extremely similar. This is to be expected though, since they are just one trim level away from each other. Each of the trims comes with standard features such as:

  • Trail Rated badges
  • Sunrider Soft Tops
  • Fog lamps and halogen headlamps
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Hill Start Assist
  • Traction Control
  • Electronic Roll Mitigation
  • Trailer Sway Control

However, the Sport S model does offer a handful of extra features that are not available on the Sport like air conditioning, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob with chrome accents, a one-year subscription to SiriusXM Radio, and deep-tint sunscreen glass.

Which Will Suit You?

Ultimately, deciding which vehicle will better suit your needs in this case comes down to looks. Both vehicles have similar performance and standard features, but their differences mainly come in the way of styling. The tire sizes vary, as do their finishes, and many of the extra features offered on the Sport S are appearance based and add to the overall look of the vehicle. The deciding factor here is style, choose the one that suits you best.
