Under the hood, a revised version of FCA's 3.6-liter V6 will generate power, while a new 8-speed automatic transmission will be a big change compared to the current model's 5-speed system. Although there were rumors of an aluminum frame, reports say Fiat Chrysler has settled on a steel frame with aluminum pieces to control the vehicle's cost. The lightweight metal will be used in the vehicle's hood, doors and tailgate to aid fuel economy. Off-road enthusiasts may appreciate a 4-cylinder diesel option reportedly under consideration for later launch.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is current expected in mid-2016. Stay tuned for the latest release info.
