All-new 2018 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon

One can clearly see that the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL has set itself apart from competition with advanced off-road capabilities. The Wrangler JL is the fourth-generation Wrangler model and it officially went public earlier this year. Like the previous Wrangler models, the Wrangler JL is available as a 2-door convertible SUV or a 4-door convertible SUV and drivers can take it almost anywhere they please. Let’s examine what you might not know about what’s inside and outside of the all-new Wrangler JL.

The Power to Take You Nearly Anywhere

The powertrain of this top-notch off road vehicle starts with the 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline inline four-cylinder engine that generates up to 268 horsepower. As a mild-hybrid engine paired to an automatic transmission, this powertrain helps drivers save money at the pump because it provides a better gas mileage than the Wrangler has in the past. You won’t notice the difference too much between city or highway MPG as the Jeep Wrangler JL provides 23 city and 25 highway MPG.

The 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine is a turbocharged engine that does fairly well in regards to fuel economy as it averages 23 mpg on the highway. Though, rumors say the Jeep brand intends to introduce plug-in hybrid electric vehicle in the next decade, the EcoDiesel engine is an excellent option for drivers with fuel economy in mind.

And the premiere powertrain option for owners of a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL is the available 3.6-Liter Pentastar VVT gasoline V6 engine. This strong engine is paired to a six-speed transmission delivers 285 horsepower and averages 25 mpg on the highway.

Roof Top Options

The all-new Wrangler JL is available with new top options.

The Sunrider soft top, which is a soft canvas roof and the standard option for all 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL trims. Redesigns make opening and securing even easier than before with the ability to take off the top as simple as ever to pull off. (You can store your top inside the vehicle behind the rear seats easily). Formerly only available in black, the Sunrider soft top is now available in tan as well.

The Freedom Top hardtop is a solid metal roof and a three-piece system with two removable roof panels in the front of the vehicle. This allows the drivers to take off the panels without taking off the whole roof.

A final option is completely new to the Wrangler and it is the Sky One-Touch Power Top. This top is a soft canvas that is removable with the touch of a single button. It makes it possible for users to close or open the roof at speeds up to 60 mph.

Impressive Infotainment Awaits

Not only is the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL capable of handling off road driving and providing adventure wherever you drive, but it’s also got tech to help you get exactly where you need to go and to stay connected. The Wrangler JL comes standard with a touchscreen. The available fourth-generation Uconnect infotainment system provides access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which allows users to integrate their Apple or Android smartphone with the vehicle’s infotainment system and control their phone via the built-in touchscreen. All this makes for a better experience than you’ve ever had behind the wheel of Jeep Wrangler.
