2018 Jeep Wrangler – Engine Specifications
The car needs no introduction, reason? You know that better. More than seven decades had passed, and the basic design and power terrain is unchanged with little add-ons as per the demand. It is equipped with the 3.6-liter V6 engine, generating 285 hp, which is capable of fulfilling every demand made up for a jeep. The existing model of Wrangler is sold in three trim levels.
- The first one being the base sport,
- Next is mid-range Sahara, and
- The last one is hardcore
2018 Jeep Wrangler is going to be a little more than just a four wheel drive. It will deliver something which can only be felt and experienced.
Are you like bothered about its fuel efficiency? Never mind for those who are looking for something economical, this not your cup of tea. By the way, the car delivers 18 miles per gallon on highways with excellent gearing and gripping.
2018 Jeep Wrangler – Redesign Feature
If somebody asks to define the looks of a wrangler in a single word, that cannot be anything other than ‘RAW.’ Simple, raw, beast are the words come to any sane person’s mind if he or she could achieve a glimpse of the car. Matt finished aluminum body with a soft roof, and matching leather upholstery are the first element of attraction. A mid-sized steering wheel and small rear panel works as the cherry on the cake and enhances the manliness on a positive side.
Facility of air conditioning is optional with an additional payment of $2100; sometimes it is required in an extreme climate. The car is at its best when rear windows are zipped off, and the soft roof is peeled down.
For those who are looking something to commute within the city premises or often hit the freeways with family and friends to enjoy countryside peace, this is not that something, rather it’s noisy with stiffer suspension and almost no creature comfort. So be wise and clear the picture of utility and functionality.
2018 Jeep Wrangler – Release Date and Expected Price
The announcement was official, though it is hard to tell about its launching schedule. The picture will get clearer by the end of the month as FCA is going to reveal updated five-years product strategy to investors. But so far, it is clear that it will be designed along with next generation Wrangler in Toledo, Ohio.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler will be coming with a little higher price tag, the existing version costs between $35,046 and $ 36,578, for the base model. Is there any viable competitor for 2018 Jeep Wrangler? Not really. But there are few in the same segment with more or less same figures for engine capacity and fuel efficiency. They are Toyota 4Runner, Subaru Forester and few which does not even worth mentioning.
