Sneak Peek of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler

There has been talk about a Jeep Wrangler next generation model in the news for years now. It seems like the wait is over now since the test mule of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler has been seen in the hot southwest. And it will be arriving in the near future to Chapman Chrysler Jeep!

The redesigned model of this famous off-roader seems to be falling in to place as the prototypes have begun their test rides. Wrangler enthusiasts will no doubt be happy at the news that the 2018 prototype is in testing and is expected in 2018.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler’s final sheet metal isn’t ready; however, the mule was seen wearing the current Jeep Wrangler’s body. What made the Wrangler mule was the 2 door configuration that had a different exterior to the current Wrangler.

Modifications were seen on the windshield as well as on the side skirts. It is very likely that the new Jeep Wrangler will have an extended hood and wheelbase. This will guarantee an easier handling vehicle and more interior space.

Other than the changes to the front end, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler appears fairly similar to the present model. Also included on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will be steel construction, body on frame designs and solid axles. Aluminium might also be used for certain parts to make it lighter and more fuel efficient compared to the previous models.

Currently the Wrangler is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 and the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will probably be using the same engine. The V-6 engine has a 6-speed manual transmission. Don’t be surprised if an 8-speed automatic transmission is offered with the new Jeep Wrangler.

In the US for the first time, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will have a diesel option. Further down the road there is a possibility of a hybrid version of the Jeep Wrangler.

The new Jeep Wrangler is expected to go into production in 2017 at the FCA’s Toledo plant. Therefore expect the next generation Jeep Wrangler in 2018 and will be awaited eagerly by all off-road enthusiasts. Also coming to the market very soon is a 4-door Wrangler Unlimited.
