The SUV is the first all-new Wrangler in over a decade, but stays true to a design that has its roots in WWII. It still has a boxy shape and upright grille with round headlights, but Jeep says it is more aerodynamic than ever before.
Technical details have not yet been revealed, but there will be a variety of roof options on both two-door and four-door models, and three engines: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo, 3.6-liter gasoline V6 and likely a 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbodiesel.
The Wrangler remains a body-on-frame truck with front and rear solid axles. A manual transmission and manually-operated 4x4 system will be offered, and can be seen in the Rubicon photos, but an electronic full time all-wheel-drive system is also expected to be on the options list for the less hardcore off road models.
Production is expected to begin before the end of this year, with a pickup version of the Wrangler to follow for the 2019 model year.
