Details on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Leak Ahead of its Debut
Aug 07, 2017
There are a few surprises for those anxiously waiting for the next-generation Jeep Wrangler.
JLWranglerForums.com has shared screenshots of options, packages, colors, and features heading to the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler, straight from the FCA dealer system. A turbo-diesel engine option has been confirmed, along with a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. There is also, of course, the popular 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that will be available as an option. The engines can be paired to either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic.
Members of the forum are excited to see a new Selec-Trac full-time 4WD system listed as an option, which means it may be possible to leave the new Wrangler in four-wheel drive all the time. It will however, only be offered on the four-door Wrangler Unlimited Sahara, if the leaked screenshots are accurate. All other models will have selectable four-wheel drive.
The leaked information also reveals the new Wrangler will be available in Sport and Rubicon trims for two-door models, while the four-door version adds the Sahara trim. Available colors include Granite Crystal Metallic, Acid Yellow, Fireracker Red, Billet Silver Metallic, Bright White, Black, and Nacho.
Roof/top options are plentiful: black three-piece hard top, body color three-piece hard top, premium black Sunrider soft top, premium tan Sunrider soft top, premium black soft top, premium tan soft top, and black power soft top.
Unfortunately pricing wasn’t listed for the new Wrangler, but we can expect more details when the Wrangler makes its debut later this year, likely at the 2017 L.A. Auto Show.
