The Science Of Adventure

Jeep Wrangler's bearing the Chelsea Truck Company badge, enjoy insanely high resale values, making them an enticing choice for the savvy car buyer.
Automotive valuation experts, CAP deem the Black Hawk Edition to encompass a mammoth 35% uplift in residual value whilst the CJ300 enjoys a 12 percent mark above the black book value.
Jeep Wrangler’s usually image scream “hardcore,” but its personality is better aligned with soft-spoken competency. That’s the case with the Chelsea Truck Company CJ300 Adventure Edition, one of the plushest Wranglers you will ever come across.
This particular model is a 3 door CJ300 Jeep Wrangler complete with Shadow chrome headlights on either side of the four-slot Chelsea Tuck Company grille with industrial mesh. Tron ring lighting, LED running lights and a new Chelsea Truck Company spare wheel cover are also available as part of the package.
The driving experience is like no other, especially with the top off, and it\'s a ton of fun to drive around, especially with those Jeep 1941DC wheels in Satin Black measuring 7.5” x 17” at both axles complete with Cooper Discoverer S/T Maxx 285x70x17” tyres bite hard into dirt, turf and jagged treads, which extend down the sidewalls and enable an easy escape from mud-ruts.
Should grip run low, the locking rear differential engages automatically, binding the rear wheels together and maintaining the ability to fling and dig free of slop.
Yes, it still looks like a tough Jeep from the outside, in keeping with its heritage, yet the Wrangler is rather refined inside.
Behind the privacy-tinted glass sits quilted Black Leather front sport racing seats, centre console, steering wheel and arm rests are all furnished in quilted and perforated black leather for a more comfortable ride.
Just because it has removable doors and roof panels, and that it can go just about anywhere at any time, the Adventure Edition neither acts nor feels like a brute, its refined, 197-horsepower 2.8 engine delivers smooth and steady power.
Ignore, for a moment, the Wrangler’s aforementioned looks, and settle in behind the steering wheel.
Priced at under £32,975, this Wrangler represents phenomenal value as a capable SUV, making it a relative bargain considering that it can tackle the Earth’s toughest territory at a moment’s notice.
