After more than two decades of production, this legendary SUV will come redesigned for the third time, as 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Original model came in 1987. So far, we have seen three generations of it. The current model is in production for a full decade, and it is about time to see some changes. The company develops a new model for several years, and latest reports indicate that fourth generation is in the final stage of development. The testing model has been spotted several times so far, and it looks like it finally gets its final look, despite the fact that it still wears camouflage. According to the latest reports, 2018 Wrangler will have its premiere very soon, while production should start in September.
2018 Jeep Wrangler redesign
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler will finally come redesigned. After more than ten years, the company finally prepares to launch completely new model, which should come with several new design solutions. According to various reports, engineers prepared a completely new platform, just for this legendary SUV, and later its truck version. So far, we know for sure that 2018 Jeep Wrangler will continue with a traditional body on frame construction. On the other side, its body will surely utilize some aluminum. However, we still don’t know exact numbers, so it is hard to predict how much pounds new model could be lighter.
When it comes to styling, we will surely see plenty of new details, but 2018 Wrangler will definitely continue in the same manner as the original model. So, expect familiar shape, with plenty of modern additions. Inside, we will probably see more changes, especially when it comes to new technologies and similar stuff.
2018 Jeep Wrangler engine
We expect to see many changes in terms of powertrain. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler will come with several new engine options. The base model will probably remain the same 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which could receive some boost in power and improvements in fuel economy. Optional gasoline engine should be new turbo inline-four, which will come with much better efficiency. Also, 2018 Wrangler will come in diesel version. Most likely, it will use the same 3.0-liter V6 as that runs Grand Cherokee. All these engines will be available with two transmission choices. Expect new 8-speed automatic in an offer, as well as 6-speed manual. Also, there are rumors about the hybrid version, but it surely won’t come before 2020.
2018 Jeep Wrangler release date and price
As we already mentioned, 2018 Jeep Wrangler should come this autumn. Base model should go under 30.000 dollars.
