2018 Jeep Wrangler Unveiled La Auto Show Update 06/2022

2018 Jeep Wrangler

After more than 10 years, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler is finally the next generation. The JK Wrangler is being replaced by the JL model.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Exterior Design

The Jeep Wrangler stays friendly and boxy for 2018. People who like the Jeep Wrangler like that it has straight lines, round lights, a flat hood, and a vertical grille. Anyone who likes it won’t like it if it gets rounder. Overall, the profile stays true to its roots, but it has a few modern touches that make it look more up-to-date. The headlights are still round, but they have LED daytime running lights and LED projectors. The headlights are as close to the grille as the vertical slats with seven edges. There are LED taillights that fit into the same shape as the old ones.

Still, it’s easy to take off the doors, roof, and front windshield. There is no zipper to take off the soft top by hand. Now, it’s much easier and faster to fold back the soft top.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Interior Design

The interiors look the same as the outside, but they have a few extra features. Dash accents made of metal are one of the small changes that make the car better. So, everything that looks like metal in the Wrangler is metal. You can rest your whole forearm on the longer, flat door armrests. The centre console is now a little bit higher, making it easier to reach the gear lever, the parking brake, and the cup holders.

What’s the best type of automatic transmission?

The top models have an 8.4-inch UConnect system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Lower variants get 5.0 or 7.0-inch displays. There is also a small colour LCD in the instrument cluster that can show more information, such as pitch and yaw. All around the cabin are drain holes. So you can get it dirty and then just use pressure to clean the inside.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Engine Specs

All variants come with a rugged body frame and 4WD as standard.

2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine with mild hybrid

270hp power

366Nm torque (more than the V6 petrol engine)

Automatic transmission with 8 speeds

The smallest engine breaks the rule that “big engine, big power.” It has good power numbers thanks to the turbocharger and direct injection, and a mild hybrid system gives it more torque when it’s not working hard.

The reaction of hard-core fans will be the same as a Mustang fan’s. Even people who like muscle cars took a while to admit that the small EcoBoost turbo gasoline engine wasn’t that bad. Over time, Jeep fans will also realise that a turbocharger and hybrid system aren’t too bad.

3.6-litre Pentastar V6 petrol engine

285hp

353Nm

Transmission with 6 manual speeds and 8 automatic speeds

3.0-litre V6 turbocharged diesel engine

2018 Jeep Wrangler Price

India will get the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which has four doors and costs Rs. 60.2 lakh right now. Heavy import duties are to blame for the high price. The price of the next-generation Wrangler could go up by about Rs. 4.0–5.0 lakh. That will bring the price of the 2018 Wrangle Unlimited from the showroom in India to about Rs. 65.0 lakh.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Competition

There is no direct competitor to the Wrangler. But the Mahindra Thar is a very capable off-road vehicle (Rs. 9.0 lakh). But that would be like saying that the Royal Enfield Continental GT is a rival to the Triumph Thruxton. Even though they are both cafe racers, the prices are very different. The Thruxton R costs Rs. 12.5 lakh and the Continental GT costs Rs.
