2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: Redesign Info & Release Date

, Senior Pricing Analyst - March 08, 2017

Redesign Info

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is due for a major redesign for the 2018 model year. Like its iconic stablemate, the Wrangler, some important changes in technology appear to be in store for its latest generation.

Under the hood, a revised version of FCA's 3.6-liter V6 is expected to generate power, while a new 8-speed automatic transmission is anticipated to be a big change compared to the current 5-speed gearbox. Off-road enthusiasts may appreciate a new 4-cylinder diesel reportedly under consideration for launch at a later date.

Although there were rumors of plans for an aluminum frame, reports say Fiat Chrysler has settled on a steel frame with aluminum body panels to control the vehicle's cost. The lightweight metal will likely be used in the vehicle's hood, doors and tailgate for better fuel economy.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is slated to begin production in October. We currently anticipate an on-sale date in November.

Stay tuned for the latest info as it becomes available.
