What you see here is one of the prototypes of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Although it resembles the outgoing Wrangler, the 2018 model would get several aerodynamic tweaks to make make it less upright.
A fixed windshield and possibly longer front end will be the main giveaways. Mechanical updates are expected to include significant amounts of aluminium in the name of weight reduction, although the body will be mostly made of steel. A new 2-litre turbo four, dubbed Hurricane, is slated for the Wrangler as a more fuel-efficient option.
Meanwhile, the Pentastar V6 and eight-speed automatic will be the mainstream powertrain, although the big news will be a 3-litre V6 turbo diesel for North America and likely global markets.
Jeep officials have insisted the Wrangler's off-road abilities will only be improved, despite the changes for economy. We expect to see the new Wrangler in the coming months.
