The Jeep Wrangler is an iconic piece of equipment that everybody has been waiting to see back in action once again. When the news of its potential redesign version hit the stands everybody was more than excited to see the car perform and into action. The car is going to be released as a 2018 model and the release date is scheduled somewhere between now and 2018. This being a long spanned time period it is certain that some changes are due to happen and we get to experience a lot of brushing up until we get our production ready model. The car made its official debut back in 2007. It was a rugged solution to all the people who needed utility and driving capability. The Jeep Wrangler provided that and gave even more. But as the market is evolving so has the Wrangler need to do that as well. The redesign will feature many innovations and besides touching upon the aesthetics of the vehicle, they will need to address the fact which was the Wrangler’s biggest issue in the past. Fuel economy was a weakness for the vehicle and remains to be so. There need to be significant changes to happen and get this future car up in the ranks with its fuel economy rating.
Besides the initially mentioned changes there are some talk that there need to be some changes in the performance for the car, so we are not to certain if this means that the car is going to be fitted with a new engine, a stronger one that is meant to boost the efficiency and productivity levels of the vehicle. Nevertheless, the car will see the light of day on its release in 2018 the least, till then we will try to provide you all the news, price info, release dates and pictures that the Wrangler releases.
2018 Jeep Wrangler – Exterior
The changes for the redesign of the Jeep Wrangler are certainly going to be expensive, so the makes are perhaps thinking of making it a bit cheaper and not spending too much time and money on redesigning the entire lot. Yet there are other rumors that the vehicle’s exterior is going to go through an entire overhaul and that it is going to look completely different compared to its present state. The thing is that if they are going to enhance the fuel economy, they need to get rid of all the excess weight that the car has and make it a lot slimmer. This certainly justifies the use of new lighter materials in the making of the exterior of the car.
A switch to an aluminum design is the same thing to do and certainly something that is going to happen for the future Wrangler. Maybe it will get to be a lot less dramatic than it was firstly perceived it would but the end result will be aimed at enhancing the efficiency of the car. Thus a steel body with panel doors and fenders made from aluminum is the best way to go in order to reduce the weight and make the car lighter. Some rumors say that there are going to be some body on frame construction that are going to make a comeback for the design of the vehicle as well.
It is more than certain that the car remains available with short-wheelbase 2-door and long-wheelbase 4-door versions. Removable-soft tops is another thing that may get to be reused again and hardtops could be a part of the exterior design in order to reduce complexity and perhaps shed some weight as well. The size of the car is going to be the same but with a few tweaks here and there that will adjust the car’s aerodynamic and make it look good as well.
New Interior Design
As there are not going to be any size changes of the outside of the car, that will mean that you won’t get to feature any changes on the inside as well. Actually as the size remains the same so will the inside measures be. So feel free to think about the 2018 model Wrangler with the shape as the current one. This by no means marks the fact that the car is going to be left the same as there are certainly going to be some interior changes. Perhaps not exclusive one, but expect to see an update in the technology department and see some different material trims that might come available. Perhaps even some special optional offers that this Jeep might get.
Engine – Under The Hood Options
As the key here is to make the fuel economy for the following 2018 Jeep Wrangler better there are certain rumors about its powertrain. Firstly, the base engine may not get a comeback, so the current 3.6-liter V-6 may not be seen under the hood of the Wrangler. Some say that this engine will get an optimized version of 3.0 or 3.2 liters that will get use 285-horsepower. There are even talks of the Jeep getting a diesel option. Maybe not the base one but perhaps there is going to be an optional diesel offer given or a trim that you might get to use. Either way the 6-speed transmission is making a comeback for certain and a 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic gearbox may come as optional to enhance the efficiency.
Price and Release Date
The release date is scheduled to appear somewhere between 2017 and 2018 when the Jeep Wrangler will make its appearance. We may get to see it at the Detroit Auto Show as the dates may coincide then and make it a perfect day for the car’s announcement. As for the price, 2018 Jeep Wrangler will be announced as soon as the production details have been announced as well, till then let’s just wait for the updates for the car to be announced one by one.
