This just in: the 2018 Jeep Wrangler has been spotted testing in the Silver Lake sand dunes ahead of its launch!
A member of the JLWrangler forum spotted the next-generation, long-awaited Jeep Wrangler while it was doing some off-road testing in Silver Lake, Michigan. While the details are still a bit of a blur on the upcoming replacement Wrangler, it looks like Jeep is just as concerned with how it will perform off-road as they have been with every other Wrangler!
These videos are short but they show a good amount of suspension travel in the Wrangler, and enough rubber to get in and out of trouble. The rest is still covered by sheet metal or camouflage, unfortunately.
For power, the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and new eight-speed transmission will probably power the new Wranglers, but a 2.0-liter turbo engine will most likely appear on base models. We are still hoping for Chrysler's 3.0-liter diesel showing up under the hood, despite the company's recent diesel controversy.
Watch the videos to catch a glimpse of the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler!
