Spy Shots! 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Inches Closer to Production

  Spy Shots! 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Inches Closer to Production LED Driving Lights, Backup Camera SeenWe’re pretty sure the JL will come with one of three engine options: A gas V-6, the 3.0L EcoDiesel V-6, and a turbocharged I-4, possibly displacing 2.0L. Transmission choices are likely to be an eight-speed automatic, and six-speed manual. The diesel will likely be automatic-only. Although well-cladded, these spy shots reveal a few more details. Validating the screenshots leaked out of a dealer meeting, it appears the JL will get LED strip driving lights in the front, flanking the traditional seven-slot vertical grille and round headlights.

After 10 years on the road, the current Jeep Wrangler JK is finally being put out to pasture. As expected, the new Wrangler is going to look a hell of a lot like the current model. Surprise, surprise. Until now, all we've been able to do is glimpse the occasional spy shot or well-done rendering. Our spy photographers finally managed to capture photos of the much-needed update to the interior.

Will the Jeep Wrangler Pickup Be Built On a Ram Frame?

  Will the Jeep Wrangler Pickup Be Built On a Ram Frame? <p>An FCA expert hypothesizes that the carmaker could have big plans for the Jeep pickupin more ways than one.</p>Admittedly, Vellequette's evidence is largely circumstantial at this point. The primary point he cites is the fact that FCA is pushing back production of the Jeep pickup to 2019 as one reason-the delay, he says, is due to the fact that the new truck (internally code-named JT) is too long for the existing paint shop at the carmaker's Toledo, Ohio, factory.

The Jeep Wrangler ’ s seven-slatted grille is one of the most famous car-faces on the road. JL Wrangler Forums got a whole gallery of this just slightly obscured next - gen Wrangler grille as spotted on a prototype test mule in Death Valley.

Like the exterior, the the new interior isn't a huge departure. The overall design, unsurprisingly, is a mix of Jeep Renegade and outgoing Wrangler . The debut is drawing ever closer, so look for a full debut sometime in the next few months.

Like the exterior, the the new interior isn't a huge departure. The overall design, unsurprisingly, is a mix of Jeep Renegade and outgoing Wrangler. All the switches and knobs are still on the center stack, necessary when the doors aren't permanently attached. There are four auxiliary buttons in the bottom-right corner and what looks like electronic controls for the four-wheel-drive system and detachable sway bar on the left. The materials look to be a higher quality than the one in the current model, but a full judgment will have to wait until we literally get our hands on it.

A presumably body-colored panel runs the width of the dash, with big, round vents flanking the latest version of FCA's wonderful UConnect infotainment system. The steering wheel appears to be an even newer design than what's currently inside Jeep products, with a large, thick rim and the usual smattering of buttons. A tight close-up shot gives us a glimpse of the removable roof, though it's not enough to show how it works.

There isn't much new to see on the exterior. The Wrangler's front and rear are still heavily camouflaged, and the entire body is covered in a detail-hiding wrap. The debut is drawing ever closer, so look for a full debut sometime in the next few months.


SPIED: Wrangler JL Pickup Testing on Public Roads! .
Long-Awaited Variant Moves Closer to ProductionThe photos don’t show any major changes or surprises of the expected configuration of a four-door crew cab and a relatively short bed. As cool and desirable as a Wrangler pickup will be to many, there are some inevitable tradeoffs for the pickup configuration. The longer wheelbase will mean a less-favorable breakover angle, and the bed overhang over the rear wheels will result in a less-optimal departure angle. However, it appears the rear bumper and bed height are still good enough to offer plenty of off-road agility and capability.
