It was just a few weeks ago that we brought you the latest spy shots of the next generation Jeep Wrangler. This week, Jeep has released the first official photos of the 2018 Wrangler ahead of its public debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show later this month.
As expected, the overall design stays true to the Wrangler’s historically recognisable boxy shape. The keystone-shaped grille remains intact too, with round, but more modern-looking headlamps, a windshield that folds down but leaves the A-pillars in place, a redesigned roll cage in the two-door Rubicon version, and familiar square tail lamps. Jeep says the upcoming model, built on the new JL chassis, is more aerodynamic and comes equipped with advanced safety features and the latest of technology.
And as usual, there will be “dozens of” different door, roof and windshield combinations for the new Wrangler, about which not much other details have been divulged yet.
At the SEMA show, Jeep also announced a new line of Mopar accessories developed for the 2018 Wrangler. These 200-plus products also include kits from Jeep Performance Parts such as lift kits, beadlock-capable wheels, off-road bumpers, LED off-road lights and unique rock rails that target hardcore trail enthusiasts. For the first time, the Wrangler gets a roof rack and a tailgate table, while new vehicle graphics, tyre covers in several styles and designs, and fuel doors make up the rest of the accessories line-up.
We’ll bring you more details of the new Wrangler as they emerge closer to the November 29 debut at the LA show.
