Air vents?

I have a 2012 jeep wrangler sport.

Does the jeep have air vents that can be opened for outside air only? If so, how do they open?

Thanks...

No passive air vents. But, you can roll the windows down, or better yet, take the top and doors off if ya' want more ventilation.

I do miss floor vents and wing windows though!

Well unless you have air conditioning and set it to "recirculate", the air blowing out of the vents is outside air.

Pretty sure the OP was thinking about passive, outside air vents, not fan driven. I could be wrong though... wouldn't be surprised!

You might be right. 1966 Austin Healey Sprite was my last car with floor vents and wing windows. Man, do I ever miss them!
