2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel – A next-generation four-door Jeep Wrangler mule going through testing in southeastern Michigan. We’ve seen numerous very finely veiled current-gen Jeep Wranglers serving as mules over the previous several months, everyone sporting a slightly unconventional piece of bodywork or fresh mechanicals in its nether areas, but this is the very first time we’ve snagged a next-gen 2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel doing its thing in its own skin. With a lot of miles of testing to complete prior to its big reveal and Jeep wisely called in the ragman to stitch up a concealing set of camouflage duds and shape-altering products created to send out blended messages– simply get a load of the (we hope) exaggerated centerpiece in the front bumper. We have not seen a maker go to such lengths to totally obscure a car given that FCA was putting the Pacifica through its trials.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel Design
As we have actually said in the past, few contemporary automobiles have the iconic status of the Jeep Wrangler, and therefore any clean-sheet redesign is approached by the faithful with a mix of anticipation and hesitation. We’ve been positive the whole time that the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will keep its solid front and rear axles, four-wheel drive, and body-on-frame building and these images appear to support that theory. Regrettably, the heavy draping makes it impossible to identify if the body could, as has been extensively reported, use aluminum for some or all its building. The same chooses the rumored-to-be-done-for fold-down windscreen, as the cladding is too thick to smell out the presence of a hinge or joint (or do not have thereof).
Aside from plainly visible frame rails, these spy pictures don’t expose much about the brand-new Jeep Wrangler’s chassis. Based upon previous intelligence, however, you can count on conventional solid axles and a ladder-frame chassis. Ideally, Jeep is hectic removing weight from those components while enhancing or maintaining strength and toughness. It deserves noting that the elaborate camo might quickly be set up to give an SUV appearance to the pending Jeep pickup, although the short rear overhang seen here suggests otherwise.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel Engine
FCA revealed a modified item plan in January that suggested that both a diesel motor and a hybrid powertrain are on the slate for the next-gen 2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel. The new powertrains will not be readily available at launch; the diesel is set to show up prior to the 2022 model year, and the hybrid is following that. No specifics were offered, however, it makes sense that a version of the 240-hp turbo-diesel 3.0-liter V-6 presently in use in the Ram 1500 pickup would be a candidate (the hybrid system is likewise earmarked for an appearance in the Ram pickup). Up until then, it’s a good bet the Pentastar V-6 will provide motivation, and Jeep is working to ensure Chrysler’s ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission will suit the brand-new Wrangler. The existing Wrangler utilizes an older five-speed system, as the eight-speed is too large to fit.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel Price
The next 2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel is stated to be arranged for a launching late this year; the Toledo factory where today’s model is developed is already retooling for the next-gen variation along with a new Jeep Wrangler-based pickup. With the need for the lucrative Wrangler frequently outstripping supply– and with the anticipated aluminum bits coming online– we do not see the brand-new rig’s base MSRP can be found in listed below today’s $25,000 mark.
