As Jeep continues testing the fourth-generation Jeep Wrangler, spy shots of a test mule have surfaced online again. The model seen in the latest spy shots, courtesy Ferd Fanpage, is the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (five-door variant).

Like the current Jeep Wrangler, the next-gen Jeep Wrangler will have solid axles and a ladder-frame chassis.

The fourth-gen Jeep Wrangler (codename: Jeep JL) features an evolutionary design and retains its boxy proportions and signature cues. The redesigned model, with possible minor changes in the dimensions, will feature the 7-slot grille, round headlamps and trapezoidal wheel arches. The all-new Wrangler will have a more raked windshield and fully removable doors and roof.

Like the current Jeep Wrangler, the next-gen will have solid axles and a ladder-frame chassis to maintain the ruggedness and off-road capability Jeep enthusiasts expect from the model. The redesigned model will have a longer wheelbase (2,947 mm – current model). At launch, it should have the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 petrol engine under the hood, but mild-hybrid, diesel and hybrid options will follow later during the lifecycle.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler will debut later this year and enter production in November. While the U.S. launch could take place by the end of 2017, Indian launch may take about a year, as the production of the outgoing model will continue alongside for about half a year reportedly.
