Photo of 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Leaks Online
Aug 15, 2017
A photo of what appears to be the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL has surfaced online, revealing a portion of the SUV’s design ahead of its debut later this year.
The photo, which was posted to the Jeep forum on Reddit, shows the side profile of the new Wrangler. It appears to have been taken at the Toledo, Ohio Jeep plant and reveals the design of the doors, fenders, hood, side mirrors and a section of the roof.
We already knew the new Wrangler would be longer than the outgoing JK and this photo clearly shows the JL’s elongated profile. Despite the larger stature, it should be lighter than the JK thanks to the use of aluminum for the hood and doors. Thankfully the high-strength steel frame will remain, as will the floating solid axles.
The Wrangler is expected to arrive with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine as standard, while a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder will optional. A diesel version with Fiat Chrysler’s 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 should become available at a later date, along with a plug-in hybrid. An eight-speed automatic will likely be the only transmission option.
The Wrangler JL is expected to debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show in late November. A Wrangler pickup sharing the JL’s revised platform will debut next year as a 2019 model year vehicle.
