Sometimes, you just need to get out of town. And, sometimes, you have to go to Costco. Lucky for us, the Sahara is ready for whatever life puts in front of you - or what you want to leave behind.

Climb behind the heated steering wheel of the brand-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited Sahara and you'll quickly understand: It's impossible not to make an impression in this all-new Jeep. It's rugged, styled to make an impression and practical in purpose, right down to the premium headlamps - complete with a glowing LED signature ring - that illuminate your arrival.

When not admiring the 18-inch tech-gray wheels with polished face that reflect your incredible taste in vehicles, take a listen to this baby drive. The 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine purrs like a wild mountain cat - the kind of mountain cat that boasts 285 horsepower with 260 pound-feet of torque.

That's because the Sahara is made for wild terrain - so your drive won't be. Thanks to superb Traction Control, you'll handle the harshest, most unpredictable of situations. More concerned about the wild drivers around you while running errands in town? You'll be notified of drivers creeping up on you thanks to radar-based sensors; the Blind Spot Monitoring System and Rear Cross Path Detection will alert you to obstacles behind you, just in case you miss 'em in your Backup Camera monitor.

It's massively fun to drive the Sahara, but even this beauty has to come to a stop sometimes. That's when ParkView comes in handy, making parking a cinch thanks to the sonar system in your bumper that will let you know how much room you have left in front.

And just because it's a beast on the road doesn't mean it's not high-tech inside. Advanced technology leads to enhanced comfort with the Jeep Unlimited Sahara. The customizable seven-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display integrates navigation and media information - like song, artist and station, off-road statistics and more - all accessible on the controls located on the steering wheel, literally putting vital "Name that Tune" information at your fingertips.

Equally impressive: The Uconnect system 4C NAV with 8.4-inch touchscreen will serve as your ideal navigator, showing you where you are and where you need to go, while the eight-speaker, 552-watt Alpine Premium Audio System with 12-channel amplifier and rear subwoofer provides your ideal travel music. The Unlimited Sahara is also designed with acoustic laminated windshield glass providing an optimized listening environment.

Prefer silence instead? Shut out the outside chaos with Active Noise Cancellation and enjoy the tranquility while relaxing in your heated leather-trimmed black bucket seat with two-way lumbar adjustment.

The Sahara experience is just too good to keep to yourself. Thankfully, there's room for more - lots of room. Your passengers will enjoy additional rear seat leg room, cup holders and USB ports as well as a 115-Volt power outlet providing additional power for cellphones and any other electronic goodies they brought along for the ride.

Feel the need to get off the asphalt and pave your own path? The Unlimited Sahara has an open-air four-wheel drive platform along with an easy fold-down windshield that essentially turns your Jeep into an ideal off-roading convertible, complete with a new sport bar constructed of ultra-high strength steel. Trailblaze over steep hills with an impressive 10-inch ground clearance and Hill Start Assist which will prevent your Jeep from rolling backwards as you're climbing. You can also plow through 30 inches of water, transforming a shallow stream from an obstacle to a splash pool for kiddies. And mudding no longer leaves a mess thanks to the Sahara Unlimited's Wash-Out Interior, featuring one-way drain valves in the floor so you can easily hose out your Jeep after your off-roading adventures.
