Jeep is showing off a few photos of the redesigned 2018 JL Wrangler ahead of its public debut this month at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.
It’s the first all-new Wrangler in over a decade. The automaker is promising more 4X4 capability and more open-air options. While it will be more aerodynamic and have some new, subtle modern design details, as we can see it keeps its well recognized boxy shape that stays true to the original. It will also feature, unsurprisingly, more aluminum bodywork.
Jeep released several photos. Pics of the open-top Rubicon reveal a new roll cage design.
One big thing to note is the windshield will now fold down while keeping the A-pillars in place, something Jeep says makes it easier to operate than it is now. Yes, the doors still come off, too.
Jeep also showed off a photo of the four-door Wrangler Sahara.
There will be a variety of roof options on both the two and four-door models. Advanced engine choices include a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo. There will also likely be a 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbodiesel.
Jeep is expected to start building the model this year. A pickup version will follow in 2019.
