For full three decades, this legendary SUV is one of the most recognizable vehicles in the world. Original model came in 1986, as successor of legendary WWII Willys, which dates all away from war years in the middle of 20th century. Current version of Wrangler is present since 2006. After ten years of production, it is easily to conclude that this model is outdated. So, company prepares a complete redesign. Although it was expected new model to come by the end of year, it looks like we will see it somewhere in 2017, as 2018 Jeep Wrangler.

New model will be based on new platform, and massive technical improvement is expected. Unlike most of the modern SUVs, it looks like this one will continue in a little bit more conventional manner. We won’t see so massive use of light materials, but more conventional steel part and similar things.
