The all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler has been unveiled at the ongoing 2017 LA Auto Show. It carries the same DNA as of its predecessor and is built with an unmatched combination of off-road capability, authentic Jeep design, open-air freedom, advanced fuel-efficient powertrains, superior on- and off-road dynamics, and a host of innovative safety and advanced technology features.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler comes in two configurations: 2-door and 4-door. The 2-door Wrangler model is available in three variants: Sport, Sport S and Rubicon while the Wrangler 4-door models are available in four variants: Sport, Sport S, Sahara and Rubicon. Dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations allow for endless configuration possibilities. A new half-door design will be available starting in 2019.
The new Wrangler features the legendary seven-slot grille with an updated look where the outer grille slats intersect with the headlights, paying homage to the Jeep CJ. The top part of the keystone-shaped grille has been gently swept back which is said to improve aerodynamics. It also gets LED headlamps with DRL that form a halo around it. The turn indicators are embedded into the trapezoidal wheel arches. The tail lamps are powered by LED lighting and give the new Wrangler a very distinct look from the rear.
Inside, the new Wrangler combines Jeep’s authentic styling, versatility, comfort and intuitive feature use. Use of high-quality materials crafted with precision is found throughout the cabin. A push-button starter, featuring a weather-proof surround, makes its debut on the 2018 Wrangler. It also gets a passive entry with Keyless Go system.

The new Wrangler utilizes a body-on-frame design and features a superbly engineered five-link suspension system. The SUV employs four skid plates and bars to protect critical vehicle components during an off-road session. Rubicon models use heavy gauge tubular steel rock rails to curtail potential body damage inflicted while out on the trail.
