’18 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited

RubiconRubicon

This is the ’18 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited with barely any camo, and it doesn’t disappoint.

The new Wrangler will resemble the outgoing one, but various aerodynamic tweaks will make it less upright. A fixed windshield and slightly longer front end are the main giveaways.

Mechanical details are expected to include significant amounts of aluminum, although the body will be mostly made of steel. A new 2.0L turbo four, dubbed “Hurricane,” is slated for the Wrangler as a more fuel-efficient option. The Pentastar V6 and eight-speed automatic will be the mainstream powertrain, although the big news will be a 3.0L V6 turbodiesel. A hybrid powertrain is also rumored, and a six-speed manual is confirmed to be available.
