One of the most eagerly awaited upcoming cars, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has posed quite a challenge for its designers and engineers. Though on one side the loyalists want the new Wrangler to possess similar off- road capabilities, the new Wranglers is also set to be considerably lighter and efficient in its design.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited – Design and Features
On the outside, the iconic enigma of the Jeep Wrangler will be maintained for sure. Given the fan following the Jeep Wrangler, it is unlikely the company is going to haul the outside much. The overall silhouette of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 2018 would be almost the same. There will be seven vertical slots and a tall grille. There will be a spare tire mounted on the rear and the fenders will be flared. The direction indications will be shifted from the grilles and now will be mounted on the fenders. The windshield will be slightly more rakish to give the overall structure more aerodynamic streamlining.
The rear of the car will not change much. Only minor changes are expected in the taillights of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The structure of the Jeep Wrangler in 2018 will be made up of Aluminium which will considerably reduce the weight of the car. As in the old Wrangler, the top of the new Wrangler may also be removable. However, there may be a series of individual panels which will facilitate the removal of the roof.
The technology on the inside is definitely going to improve. The new Jeep Wrangler will have a central infotainment system with Uconnect 3.0 which is easy to use and has a small response time. The length of the screen is expected to be around 8 inches though it is not yet confirmed. There will be buttons for automatic climate control placed just under the screen. There will be knobs for adjusting the volume and tuning the system.
The new Jeep Wrangler in 2018 will come with a heated steering wheel, parking assist technology, and audio control knobs also. The switches for power windows will be at the traditional location as in the old Jeep Wrangler.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited – Power Expectations
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will have four cylinders, turbocharged, 3.6-liter engine. One of the most important things that Jeep is known for, the torque output has not been officially revealed yet. The horsepower will be about 300. The engine will have an eight-speed automatic transmission. There will be two options available to the buyer; automatic and manual.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited – Release Date and Price
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be available in the second half of 2018. The price of the new Jeep has not been revealed yet. There will be an obvious price difference between the standard model and the pickup version which will be releasing in the year 2020. The price is also not known yet. The loyalists eagerly waiting for the Jeep Wrangler only have a few months’ worth of wait for their beloved off- road monster.
