As you probably know, next generation of this legendary SUV is in the final phase of testing. We expect that new model will come next year, and some reports say that the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be the first version to come. This is a special, stretched version of the SUV. It comes with a longer wheelbase and with several other unique characteristics. It is a 4-door version of the SUV, and also the only convertible with 4-doors. New generation of it will feature many novelties. We expect to see new aluminum body, new powertrain, diesel and hybrid configurations etc. New model will probably come late this year.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited redesign
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is coming completely redesigned. This redesign was very much expected, especially if we consider that current model is present since 2007. We expect many great new things from it. First off all, new model will come with completely new platform. Main characteristics of new body will be use of light materials, mainly aluminum. This will provide many benefits. Most important thing is that 2018 Wrangler Unlimited will be significantly lighter, which will provide better performances. When it is about visual appearance, it will continue in its recognizable manner. Although testing model still wears a camouflage, it is obvious that there won’t be radical changes. However, 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will get many new details, which will provide much more attractive look.
