2018 Jeep Wrangler JL at North Star Chrysler Dodge Jeep

This fourth generation redesign 2018 Jeep Wrangler has learned well from its predecessors, taking the most quintessential Jeep icon and ramping it up to an eleven in looks and functionality. The wilderness bred capability traverses over the mountains and down and into the city, its refinement not looking out of place when driving around town yet not sacrificing on any of its off-road capabilities. The two- or four-door Wrangler ups its technology, interior, and design to suit the modern driver equally on work weekdays as much as on weekend getaways.

What's new on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL?

What isn't new, is more fitting a question. The revolutionized body design features high-strength aluminum on the doors, hinges, hood, fenders, windshield frame, and swing gate to reduce weight, improve economy, and make stripping the car down to frame for fun and sun more easier than ever. Folding down the windshield has been superbly simplified down from 28 bolts to only four. The roof can open up with a Sky One-Touch powertop in either two hardtop varieties or one premium soft top design. New air extractors built behind the fender flares help keep the engine block cooler. The Rubicon models add a heavy gauge tubular steel rock rails to better avoid body damage out on the trail. And of course, throughout all models the spirit and look of adventure is still retained in the instantly recognizable seven-slot grille, round headlights, square rear lights, and front/rear tow hooks with available front/rear winch. For added utility, now standard is a 12-volt accessory outlet and 115-volt AC three pronged outlet. Across the trim options-the Sport, Sport S, Rubicon, and four-door exclusive Sahara-a more modern layout with high-quality new materials has upgraded the Wrangler JL into feeling luxurious despite its intended design purpose. Looking for just an escape vehicle? The base Sport model is equipped with the bare bones necessities: underbody skidplates, push-button ignition, sunroof panel, and a USB/AUX input-able eight-speaker sound system. If you want the basics, the Sport S steps up quality-of-life with power windows, air conditioning, and a touchscreen audio system with optional Bluetooth. The four-door has five-passenger seating with added luggage space.

How does the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL powertrain perform?

We look to the Jeep Wrangler for specialized off-roading and trail blazing most of all, still. Coming standard on all models is four-wheel drive, with a selection of two motors with either an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. First is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, outputting 285 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It now standardly equips an Engine Stop-Start system to provide broad torque band and a focused low-end torque for off-roading. Second, new to the Wrangler's wheelhouse, is a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, built for 268 horsepower and 295-torque and designed for lower torque peaks. An added eTorque mild hybrid system to this motor pulls torque higher than that of the V6, and also improves fuel economy, launch performance, and start/stop operations. Both systems can handle towing up to 3,500 pounds. The front and rear are equipped with solid axles and a five-link coil suspension configuration. While most models ride on 17-inch off-road tires, the Rubicon monsters around with 33-inch tires standard.
