Exterior and Interior Redesign

Jeep wants to reduce the weight of the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler by using the lightweight aluminum materials. That means it will sit on a brand-new platform. Also, the vehicle will receive a full redesign, both inside and out. According to the company’s CEO, Mike Manley, innovations are necessary in order to make this model appealing to both the future customers and old fans. So, what can we expect? It will most likely be different than the model shown on the photos posted here. A fresh front fascia, with modern grille and larger headlights, is expected, as well as a less boxy design. Inside, a modern infotainment system with satellite navigation would be a great addition. There’s a word that the 2018 model will come with an independent suspension system. This is a good news, because this would decrease the car’s weight even further.


Engine, Specs, Transmission

The latest news source claim, like we already mentioned above, that the 2018 Jeep Wrangler is gonna be fitted with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The automaker actually wanted to add this gearbox to the current-generation model, but it was not possible due to its platform. When it comes to the engine, we hope to see the improved unit. The current-generation model is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 gasoline engine producing 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. And we’re talking about the base model, because there are many Jeep variants that further increase these figures. There is no word if the future model will be powered by a diesel engine. However, some rumors claim that there is a possibility that the new Wrangler will get it. The automaker wants to improve its fuel economy, which was not so impressive so far, without sacrificing its performance and capability.
