2018 Jeep Wrangler Specs – A next-generation four-door Jeep Wrangler mule undergoing screening in southeastern Michigan. We have actually seen several very finely veiled current-gen Wranglers serving as mules over the previous several months, each one sporting a slightly unconventional piece of bodywork or fresh mechanicals in its nether areas, however, this is the first time we’ve snagged a next-gen 2018 Jeep Wrangler doing its thing in its own skin.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Specs
As we’ve stated previously, the couple of modern lorries have the renowned status of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, and hence any clean-sheet redesign is approached by the faithful with a mix of anticipation and suspicion. We’ve been confident the whole time that the new Jeep Wrangler will keep its strong front and rear axles, 4×4, and body-on-frame construction, and these images seem to support that theory. Sadly, the heavy draping makes it impossible to identify if the body could as has actually been widely reported, use aluminum for some or all its building. The exact same chooses the rumored-to-be-done-for fold-down windshield, as the cladding is too thick to ferret out the presence of a hinge or joint (or do not have thereof).
Aside from clearly visible frame rails, these spy photos do not reveal much about the new Jeep Wrangler’s chassis. It’s worth keeping in mind that the intricate camouflage might easily be set up to provide an SUV look to the pending Jeep pickup, although the brief rear overhang seen here suggests otherwise.
FCA revealed a revised product plan in January that indicated showed both a diesel engine and a hybrid powertrain are on the slate for the next-gen Wrangler. Until then, it’s an excellent bet the Pentastar V-6 will offer motivation, and Jeep is working to make sure Chrysler’s ZF-sourced eight-speed automated transmission will fit in the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler.
The next 2018 Jeep Wrangler is said to be arranged for a launching late this year; the Toledo factory where today’s design is constructed is already retooling for the next-gen variation in addition to a brand-new Wrangler-based pickup. With the need for the successful Jeep Wrangler often overtaking supply– and with the awaited aluminum bits coming online– we don’t see the new rig’s base MSRP being available in listed below today’s $25,000 mark.
