2018 Jeep Wrangler
Originally, the new Jeep Wrangler was supposed to use an aluminum body to meet tighter emissions regulations. The result was a vehicle that failed to meet emissions standards, but the new Wrangler is far from the end of the line. The new model is still a work in progress, so its release date isn’t set. However, there are some notable changes. Here are some of them.
The Jeep Wrangler JL comes with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that produces 285 horsepower. It can be equipped with either a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic transmission. It can also be fitted with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which teams up with an electric motor for more low-end power. Depending on what you need, the Jeep Wrangler JL also comes with a diesel engine and a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
The new Wrangler is still available in the Jeep lineup, but a few new color choices are available for 2022. Jeep Gecko was a long-running color that sparked controversy, but is now sidelined for the new model. Hellayella is a deep red-orange color, while Jeep Nachos are somewhere between orange and yellow. These colors compliment each other and are especially beautiful when paired with black accents.
Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission
The new Wrangler will have an eight-speed automatic transmission, automatic climate control, and power door locks. The 2020 Jeep Wrangler will come with a touchscreen infotainment system called Uconnect, which is easy to use and responsive. The Wrangler is also available with Android Auto and Apple Car Play. The new Wrangler also comes with a three-year warranty, which is comparable to its rivals.
The new Wrangler is designed to be a better place to live. In addition to the new features, the new Wrangler is more powerful than ever. Its 3.6-liter V6 is still standard, but it will be paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The new Wrangler JL will have 13 trim levels, starting at $31,320 (destination included) for the base model. These models will cost $655 more than their 2021 counterparts.
2017 Jeep Wrangler
The Jeep Wrangler has been a popular SUV for decades. Its legacy goes back to World War II and is a timeless, iconic car. It’s built in the United States, has no pretensions of sophistication, and isn’t meant for the upscale market. Jeep’s new Wrangler JL for 2022 was debuted earlier this year, and will feature a modern hybrid powertrain and several features to increase its capability.
The new Wrangler retains the legendary off-road capabilities of the classic Wrangler, with the exception of a more refined interior. The two-door body style is still available, but the Wrangler now measures 22 inches longer than the four-door Unlimited. The Wrangler is a special purpose vehicle, but its crowded interior makes it difficult to climb steep hills. In addition, it’s difficult to fit four adults comfortably in the interior.
In addition to an eight-speed FCA transmission, the Wrangler’s dashboard is still dominated by physical controls, rather than user-friendly touchscreens. It lacks the standard features of other vehicles, like keyless entry, power windows, and air conditioning. However, this vehicle’s interior isn’t without its flaws. Jeep has been building Wranglers in Toledo since the Willys era, and it has become part of the culture there.
The new Wrangler JL for 2022 features a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The car’s battery-powered version will offer an all-electric range of 25 miles. The Wrangler is prone to high wind, and its box shape makes it susceptible to the elements. Its fuel economy is 21 mpg in combined. In contrast, the Wrangler diesel gets 22/24 mpg on the highway.
The Wrangler Xtreme Recon package joins the lineup for 2022. This package includes 35-inch BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires, a 1.5-inch suspension lift, upgraded brakes, and a blacked-out exterior trim. The Xtreme Recon package is available only on the four-door Unlimited body style. In addition to the standard features, the Willys Xtreme Recon package adds a locking front and rear axle.
