Will enter production in November this year.
With months for its world debut, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler‘s interior images have surfaced online. JL Wrangler Forums has published a spy shot and a leaked image of the next-gen Jeep Wrangler.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler will feature an evolutionary design on the inside. While automakers move to fully-digital instrument panels and touch-operated keys/panels on the centre console, Jeep has retained the SUV’s old-school look with analogue instruments dominating the layout.
The all-new Jeep Wrangler will feature new 3-spoke steering wheel, redesigned analogue instrument panel, repositioned central HVAC vents (on the infotainment system’s sides) and a more premium centre console. The 2018 Wrangler will offer features like heated steering wheel, parking sensors, reverse camera, engine auto start/stop and engine push-start button.
The fourth-generation Jeep Wrangler (codename: Jeep JL) will continue with a ladder-frame chassis and solid axles for retaining its go-anywhere character. Its wheelbase will be longer than the current model (2,947 mm). A 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 petrol engine is expected form the sole offering at launch, with mild-hybrid, diesel and hybrid options following later during the lifecycle, by 2022.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler will debut this year and hit the production lines in November. The current model’s production will continue for about six months alongside the next-gen model.
