With the all-new 2018 Wrangler, Jeep has improved on a classic. The iconic off-roader is now better in every way, yet it still remains faithful to its storied Jeep legacy. The redesigning of the Jeep Wrangler was a very delicate job. It required honoring its history, respecting its loyal owner base, yet addressing its shortcomings compared to the dramatic evolution of its competition in the marketplace since the company introduced the last version of the Wrangler back in 2006. The task required making improvements throughout the vehicle without changing its silhouette.

Jeep designers were successful in performing that tricky feat. The new Wrangler is better than before, yet its rustic charm has been retained. It still evokes Jeep’s classic heritage, character, romance and mystique. The redesigned 2018 Wrangler has all its predecessor’s defining elements. That includes the seven-slot grille, removable doors and top, exposed roll cage, fold-down windshield, rear hatch and swing gate, as well as its abundant ground clearance. It also kept the body-on-frame construction and its solid axles in the front and rear.

The new Wrangler has numerous trims and many options, including powertrains and equipment, dealer-installed modifications, four-door configuration and common comfort features like the upgraded infotainment system, the cold-weather package and the tow package. Altogether they can push the adventure-ready machine to near $50,000. But, if you check one out at Chapman Chrysler Jeep, you can find the one you are looking for.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler has quicker steering, improved handling and a significantly improved powertrain. It’s powered by a 3.6-liter, 285-horsepower, V-6 engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Together they deliver prompt throttle response and a speed buildup that’s smooth and refined. Plus, the Sahara trim comes with Wrangler’s first ever selectable, full-time four-wheel-drive system which can remain engaged indefinitely. A 270-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a 3.0-liter diesel engine will be available by 2019.

The function and appearance of the Wrangler’s cabin has been updated. It now features digital screens, accent trims, a powerful Alpine stereo, hands-free calling and several other nice touches that make the 2018 Jeep Wrangler feel decidedly more modern. That includes displays with outdoorsy graphics and a red trigger release on the gear selector. There are also auxiliary controls available to make installing extra lights and other aftermarket equipment easy. The center-positioned window switches and other controls are on a flat plane with convenient push buttons to adjust the heater, activate the heated steering wheel and other common functions.

The seats on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler are wide, spongy and accommodating and adults can fit comfortably in the rear seat. Plus, there’s good visibility through its side windows and rear glass. The Unlimited trim has a large cube of cargo space accessible through a two-step process using the glass hatch and side-hinged gate. Higher trim models come with rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera featuring dynamic guidelines and other helpful driver aids.

Overall, the redesigned 2018 Jeep Wrangler offers undeniable appeal that’s immeasurable, embodies a storied history and evokes freedom and adventure. It’s more appealing than ever before without compromising its off-road credentials or its character.
