2018 Jeep Wrangler spied testing

2018 Jeep Wrangler spied testing

The Wrangler represents one of the most iconic shapes in the auto industry. For 2018, Jeep has refreshed its big, muscular SUV.

The spy shots of the new Wrangler were taken during its testing in Auburn Hills, Michigan, USA which is subsequently the home of its parent company, Chrysler. Even though the car is heavily camouflaged, some changes were still noticeable.

The new Wrangler seems to have received some aerodynamic tweaks to make it less upright but, it should still retain the charm and most of the looks of the outgoing car. The platform meanwhile, is expected to remain a traditional body-on-frame setup. A fixed windshield, longer front-end and more bulging front fenders represent the changes in the new car.

 

Under the hood, the 2018 Wrangler should retain the Pentastar V6 motor with the addition of a turbo-diesel 3.0L V6 and a Hybrid powertrain for American and global markets being high possibilities. Both engines will be mated to an eight-speed automatic to aid fuel efficiency. Jeep officials have insisted the Wrangler's off-road abilities will only be improved, despite the changes for economy.
 
The new Wrangler will be unveiled early next year and is expected to hit the roads by summer next year. This car will be sold in India but could be delayed by a few years as the current generation Wrangler is just about to be launched here.
