If you are a Jeep fan, you are probably aware that there is a new Wrangler coming in 2018. However, you probably also know that this is roughly the extent of our knowledge on the new vehicle. Fortunately, we may have just come across some images of the new car. These images come courtesy of the Jeep Wrangler JL forums, on which a user leaked what could be images of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. I will clarify at this point, these have not been released by Jeep, but rather by a person on the internet. As such, their legitimacy should be questioned thoroughly. Regardless, it is exciting to see what could be the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler.
There are a few details to take note of when comparing to the current model. My favorite design change is the addition of vents located on the front quarter panel, behind the fender. However, the grill has also seen some changes. There is a different front bumper, as well as a new tailgate design. Some have rumored that the tail lights feature the same X pattern that can be seen on the Jeep Renegade. There is also a new addition of turn signals on the mirrors. Perhaps most important is the fact that you can take off all the doors and the roof. While this isn’t necessarily a new feature for a Jeep to have, it is encouraging to think that this model will continue the trend.
While we can’t say for sure whether or not this is what the 2018 Wrangler will look like, we can certainly use this to aid in our speculation. Jeep is supposed to reveal the car at the LA auto show in November, and release the car in January. So, until then, we will just have to wait patiently for more (ideally official) information.
