Fair enough, they pretty much admitted themselves that they "just don't get it!"

Plus 4 grown adults in a 2 door is never going to cut it so a bit of an unfair test anyway.

Us Brits are are a hard bunch to please ;)

They were hating the way it drives, before they even got in.

Other than the subjective scores at the end, nothing they said was necessarily wrong. It's a two door Wrangler. It is loud, The back seat isn't really meant for adults. They complained about the power, and with 4 adults it will feel more sluggish (no matter the power train). Look at how many people in this forum complain about the steering. I don't understand why they were complaining about the location of the subwoofer, because you probably shouldn't be putting a dog behind the back seat.

Its a 2 door Wrangler, it comes with a lot of compromises compared to other vehicles. And I love mine.

I guess it depends on who the four adults are but you could be talking 1000lbs of people. That's about 25% of the weight of the empty vehicle. Of course it's going to make for sluggish performance. But as a grown up these days I've stopped expected objective opinions from any source.

Fifth Gear is like the wannabe version of the old Top Gear with Clarkson, May and Hammond. Think of it as a group of ok but no real talent people that happen to have a tv show. I'd rather watch TFL on YouTube. And that says all you need to know...

I also notice at the beginning they showed stats, they listed it with 200hp, So they must have been using the 2.2L diesel.

Classic confirmation bias.
For sure and similar criticisms of a Land Rover would be described as ‘character’.

It’s true that they don’t ‘get it’, the U.K. has no market for an off roader like the Wrangler, Jeep only sells a few hundred per year here. This is also why the new Defender was never going to have serious off road capabilities, there’s no demand for it.

I didn’t think people actually sat in the back seat of a two door after high school.
In my old JK 2 door I took out the back seat the day I bought it. More room for my dog.
