Jeep lovers rejoice! The 2018 Jeep Wrangler is poised to make some big moves. It still keeps its familiar style and looks, but it now includes modern technology along with it. It is the best of both worlds. The new Wrangler is the first major makeover the brand has had in nearly 11 years.
Sticking to Its Roots
The Wrangler still keeps the box shape that most of us have come to know. There is no doubt the 2018 model is a Jeep. Although it is boxy and angular, it is deceptively aerodynamic. The ride is smooth and handles the road with ease.
The front windshield is flat and can fold down onto the hood. This allows for a greater off-roading experience should you want it. It is still a four-wheel drive model with perfect handling on even the most rocky and uneven of roads. This new car does not forget its basic beginnings.
The Exterior Is Grand
The large grille is still the focal point of the Wrangler exterior. It is flanked by rounded headlights and horizontal lights just to the outside of that. The lights are LED and high-intensity. This is something new that was added to the 2018 model.
There are different Wrangler models that adapt to your wants and needs. The Freedom Top is the hard-top option for the vehicle. It can be removed when you want and now boasts lighter panels that are easier to handle. The Sunrider is the soft top option of the Jeep Wrangler. The best part about this model? There are no more hard to handle zippers that have been used for the back windows. Instead, the Wrangler now uses a simple spring technology that allows you to remove each panel.
The Interior Has Gotten a Boost
The inside of the new Wrangler is a real treat. There is stitched and colored upholstery that kicks the look up a notch. The metallic trim can be seen throughout the inside and ties everything together nicely.
If you didn’t know any better, you could swear you were in some swanky luxury SUV. It is that good. There is plenty of room in the front and back to fit up to five passengers. If you are more of a techie, this car doesn’t disappoint. There are full sound bar speakers located just above the seats. Wi-Fi is also available on some models as well as a blind spot system. If you can think it, this 2018 Wrangler probably has it.
A Lot to Look Forward To
The 2018 model does come in two-door and four-door models. There is not real difference between the two, it just comes down to a matter of preference. You can also choose between an eight-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission. If you want a diesel engine, however, you are going to have to wait until the end of the year for that option.
Jeep should be proud of what they have to offer in the 2018 Wrangler. It is an agile beast that doesn’t stray too far from its humble beginnings. The utility vehicle can go from highway to off-roading with ease. The interior also gives the driver the perfect ride from start to finish. If you are looking for something fun to drive that can also handle almost any terrain thrown at it, this is it. This vehicle is going places!
