2018 Jeep Wrangler diesel news, price, interior – 2017 is slated to be a very interesting year for all those expecting vehicles that will be coming out. Jeep is no different than others and could not be left out since it plans to bring out an all-new version of the Wrangler. Lovers of this jeep will love the planned changes given that Jeep is rumored to make the body stronger yet lighter than what the previous versions offer. Even better is the fact that making it lighter and stronger will ensure it gives you more miles per gallon than what the current version does. Few physical changes are expected from the new Jeep Wrangler 2018 given that the current version already exceeded the expectations set by its customers. When pictures of the new Wrangler appeared, it was during a test drive in Michigan with the new version heavily wrapped to conceal its looks.
2018 Jeep Wrangler
The interior of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler is more or less going to be like its 2017 version. For a start, it will have the beloved Radio 430N which is a 6.5-inch touchscreen console that comes with navigation facilities and radio. You also get the great sound system, which may have an upgrade in the 2018 version although the current one never falls short of expectations as far as the quality of sound is concerned. Better yet, when the 2018 Jeep Wrangler comes out, it will have the feature that make a Jeep worth its name such as the simple yet comfortable interior with the comfortable seats and spacious interior. It will also likely retain the strong and durable items that make up the upholstery that have been present in the previous versions of the car.
Not much change is expected in the next iteration of the Jeep Wrangler as far as the exterior is concerned. First of all, the bumper may get a slight enlargement to make it more pronounced than what we have now in the 2017 Wrangler. Also, there could be some changes in the materials being used as rumors suggest the new Wrangler will go for aluminum in all its major parts. The advantage of using aluminum is that it weighs less but is very strong. It is also durable. When you have a car that is lighter and stronger, there are chances that it will go more miles on the same amount of gas, while all factors remaining constant. Expect the classic look of the jeep to remain although it may have more features towards the SUV direction.
New Jeep Wrangler 2018
The engine of the new Jeep Wrangler 2018 will be even more impressive than the current versions. For a start, the engine will be a Pentastar V6 engine clocking in at 240 horsepower and having a turbo diesel rated at 3.0-liters. While the current version has a five-speed gearbox, the new one is deemed to up that by using the Chrysler ZF automatic transmission which all see the new Wrangler accelerate and decelerate at a faster and smoother rate owing to its 8 speeds. There are rumors of having a diesel engine and a hybrid one in the near future. However, one can only expect the diesel version in 2017 as the hybrid one will be available earliest in the year 2022. Earlier than that, we shall only enjoy the diesel versions of the Wrangler.
2018 Jeep Wrangler price and release date
The Toledo factory in which the current models of the Wrangler are built is already prepping for the release of the new Jeep Wrangler 2018 sometime in 2017. Expect to drive one of these somewhere in the middle of the next year. With the likely change in the materials used to aluminum, one can expect that the base price of $25,000 could rise by a significant amount. Who does not want a stronger jeep that gives them more miles per gallon and has better features than the previous one? We all do. And given the amount of demand seen with earlier versions of the Wrangler, one would expect even a bigger disparity between the levels of demand and supply in the coming year as far as the Jeep Wrangler is concerned. All 2018 Jeep Wrangler models come with the standard four wheel drive capability hence expect even more power from this one.
