THE wait is over, as the first official photos of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler have been released by FCA.
All of the intricate details are still unknown, but all will be revealed on November 29 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
What we do know is that the design of the new Wrangler is touted as modern but one that will stay true to the original. It’s also been slated to run advanced fuel-efficient powertrains, more open-air options, and more safety features and advanced technology than ever before.
Expected here late in 2018, the Wrangler will retain a dual-range transfer case, body-on-frame chassis and live-locking axles front and rear.
In a press statement, FCA said: “The all-new Wrangler’s unique design includes an instantly recognisable keystone-shaped grille, iconic round headlamps and square tail-lamps, improved aerodynamics, a convenient fold-down windshield for off-road purists, even more open-air freedom, and dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations”.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler range is expected to receive a four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine option, as well as the traditional petrol V6 and a V6 diesel engine from VM Motori. An eight-speed automatic transmission is also slated for inclusion.
