New 2018 Jeep Wrangler Review

Sponsored Links

Overview: The current Jeep Wrangler lives to see another model year, and it is officially dubbed the Wrangler JK for 2018. It will be sold alongside the all-new, JL-generation 2018 Wrangler that will debut this fall and go on sale shortly thereafter. Whereas the JL Wrangler likely will be available with three different engine options, including a turbocharged inline-four and a diesel-drinking turbocharged V-6, the Wrangler JK will continue to be powered solely by Fiat Chrysler’s familiar 285-hp 3.6-liter V-6. Fortunately, the engine once again can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission, with a five-speed automatic remaining optional.

Two four-wheel-drive systems are offered on the Wrangler JK. The Command-Trac part-time system is standard on the Sport, Sport S, and Sahara trim levels, as well as special-edition variants based off those models. The system includes a 2.72:1 low range for crawling over tough terrain. Those in search of even more capability will want to step up to the Rock-Trac part-time system that’s featured on the Wrangler JK Rubicon. It includes front and rear anti-roll bars that can be disconnected at the push of a button as well as locking front and rear differentials; the Rock-Trac four-wheel-drive system also comes with an even shorter 4.0:1 low range.

As in previous years, the Wrangler JK is offered in two- and four-door body styles. Four-door models are christened Unlimited and bear a starting price that’s $3900 greater than that of their two-door counterpart. Opting for the Unlimited adds more than 20 inches to the Wrangler JK’s wheelbase, 1.6 inches of rear legroom, and 19 cubic feet of cargo volume.

What’s New: A new Wrangler JK decal on the driver’s-side fender is the most prominent visual cue for the 2018 models. Other changes include a new Golden Eagle edition and the revival of the Altitude edition. The Golden Eagle features special decals on the hood; steel bumpers; bronze-colored headlight rings, grille surrounds, badges, tow hooks, and wheels; titanium-colored interior trim; bronze accent stitching; and Golden Eagle logos on the headrests. Also included is a tan softtop, which can be had on Wrangler JK Freedom and Rubicon Recon editions as well. Meanwhile, the Altitude features blacked-out headlight rings, front and rear bumper trim, and grille surrounds; a power-bulge hood; titanium interior trim; and black leather seats with gray stitching. Finally, both the Willys Wheeler and Freedom editions can be optioned with a rear differential that can be mechanically locked with the push of a button.

The new JL Wrangler, about which you can read more here, will add the aforementioned powertrain options, an available power top, and a pickup body style called the Scrambler.
