The All-New Jeep Wrangler Is Finally Here

The all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler made its big debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show on Wednesday.

The new Jeep looks similar to the current model, but Fiat Chrysler Automotive claims its the most capable SUV it has ever made. The vehicle is designed it to have better aerodynamics, improved performance, and the company has given it some nice tech updates.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler will first be available with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that ponies up 285 hp and 260 lb-ft with the option of an automatic or six-speed manual transmission.

A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that puts out 270 hp and 295 lb-ft and has an 8-speed automatic transmission will also be available and will feature a new eTorque technology that helps improve fuel efficiency.

And for the first time ever, Jeep will also offer a diesel engine in the US. The diesel version will have a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 EcoDiesel engine that exerts 260 hp and 443 lb-ft and has an 8-speed automatic transmission. Given its extra torque, this will likely be the most appealing option for those serious about off-roading and towing.

Those who opt for the diesel model, though, will also have to wait until 2019 and it will only be available as a four-door.

Jeep lovers will notice some of the biggest design changes inside the vehicle. The dashboard has been flattened out to make the vehicle feel more open and the vehicle maker has added push-button start. The vehicle also comes with a standard 7-inch or optional 8-inch touchscreen.

The new JL generation model features an aluminum frame and while its body is slightly bigger, the new version actually weighs about 200 pounds less than the previous JK model.

Jeep will begin rolling out the 2018 Wrangler in showrooms across the US early next year.
