Nobody knows exactly what we’re going to see when the new Jeep Wrangler hits showroom floors—it’s coming later in 2018. However, the manufacturer has been teasing it for some time, and Jeep fans all across the Tempe area, from Mesa to Gilbert, are excited and eager to see what they’re going to get when it does finally arrive.
There’s only been a few sparse details released yet, and a few images, so we already know that it’s going to keep that iconic Jeep Willys style we’ve all loved since the 1940s. Discover what you can expect to see when the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler redesign hits showroom floors later this year, with new features and styling.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Review
The new Wrangler is being crowned the Wrangler JL with the outgoing model designated the Wrangler JK, since the two will share showrooms for a few months when the JL hits the stage, and will help dealers to keep meeting demand. And it is expected to be in demand. In September 2017 alone, sales rose by 10 percent on the JK, even despite the fact that a new model is on the way.
What We Know
So far, we know that the distinctive lines that identify this vehicle as a Wrangler continue to be intact as they have been for the past nearly 80 years. It keeps that seven-slot grille, the round headlights and square taillights, and it still has the removable top and removable doors. In short—don’t worry about the redesign ditching its identity. It’s still a Jeep.
It’ll be available in the standard configurations of basic 2-door Wrangler and the 4-door 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, and there is expected to be what amounts to a crew cab pickup truck version of the Unlimited, an exciting development. It’s expected to come in either a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine or an upgraded 3.6-liter V6 engine.
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Fuel Economy
Jeep has made it a point to improve fuel efficiency on their vehicles and that seems apparent from what we know about the new Wrangler Unlimited. Prior model’s 3.6-liter V6 engine used to get a combined fuel efficiency of around 17-18 miles per gallon based on testing and EPA ratings. The new Unlimited, however, has an official EPA-estimated fuel economy of 18 miles per gallon in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, with an overall 20 mpg combined.
This new fuel rating is putting it well in line with many other vehicles in the class, and that’s welcome news for eco-conscious Jeep fans. Jeep is expected to add stop-start function to further improve mileage.
