After we saw a few previous models, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has been shown on test driving with cover protection, but uncovering many novelties and allowing a conclusion about the look and shape of the future car. Although the last model had two-door construction, it seems that new one will be a four-door model, with the slightly redesigned shape of the front end, but still with the same base as on the previous models. So, for those who loved this almost iconic model from the popular manufacturer, there are no worries because they decided to keep the known shape and details, but improving the design and adjusting to modern cars in this class.
As the spy photos have shown, 2018 Jeep Wrangler will mostly look like the previous model and particularly JK version. That means very long and sharpen front end, rounded front lights but with the wide front grille and perhaps some additions on the bottom of the front end. The whole car is cubic with sharp edges, looks sportier and like an off-road truck, with the flat rear end and cubic –shape rear lights. As we said, it will be a four-door truck, with the option of having a trim version with two doors, too. Although that is not visible on spy photos, rumors said that we should expect lighter truck thanks to the aluminum chassis. Other features are not known by now but stay with us for new information.
The manufacturer announced that they will not basically change their engines before 2022, so there is no reason to not believe in the option of using the same engine as on current model on 2018 Jeep Wrangler, too. That would be 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine with 300 horsepower, currently used on Ram 1500 Pickup from the same manufacturer. The same logic says that we should expect nothing less eight-speed automatic transmission, as the manufacturer put on the Chrysler. Putting diesel engines or even hybrid is not possible by now, according to the manufacturer, who say that nothing new will be made until 2022 when the new generation of the Wrangler comes out.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Release Date and Price
Releasing of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler is expected at the end of this year and the starting price will be around the $28,990 ($342/mo) according to car and driver if we believe to the knowers. However, it is expected that manufacturer will show this model on the next Auto Show in Los Angeles which will happen in November 2017. So, see you there with new information!
