The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Might Appear as Early as October

  The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Might Appear as Early as October Thanks to the promise of a pickup truck version, a diesel engine option, and a lower curb weight, we’re very much looking forward to the debut of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Previously, we’d heard that it would be revealed at the L.A. Auto Show towards the end of November, but according to the latest rumor, we may not have to wait nearly that long. 1/8 SLIDES © Motor Trend Staff 2018-Jeep-Wrangler-two-door-front-three-quarters-02.jpg 2/8 SLIDES © Motor Trend Staff 2018-Jeep-Wrangler-Unlimited-prototype-05.

By now you've surely seen the first official photos of Jeep's next-generation Wrangler 4x4. You might have even caught a glimpse of the rig's new, ritzier interior as well as some of the new Wrangler accessories Fiat Chrysler's Mopar parts division plans to upsell customers on. Well, strap in, because we've just driven the 2018 Wrangler JL, and while we can't say anything about how it drives until later this month, we took a whole bunch of up-close and personal photos which we're able to share.

We also can't say anything official about the Wrangler's specifications or details yet. What little information we can discuss is included in these photos. For starters, every 2018 Wrangler has a small plaque bolted to its tailgate that lists a few key specifications for both the two- and four-door models.

SPIED: 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited Totally Uncovered

  SPIED: 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited Totally Uncovered Staked out near its Michigan home base, spy photographers were able to snap off the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JL almost completely undisguised.The photos betray a few heritage styling cues, such as the circular headlamps that cut into the outermost grille slats. Such a feature was last available in the Jeep CJ-7 in 1986. Furthermore, amid rumors to the contrary, visible frame hinges all but prove the JL Wrangler will have a folding front windshield, continuing a trend that goes all the way back to the very first Willys MB “Jeep”. Visible hinges on the doors—which we’ve already seen—suggest the doors will be removable, giving the JL true open-air capability.

According to the numbers on the plaque, the new two-door Wrangler is 2.3 inches longer than its predecessor, and the four-door is 3.3 inches longer than before. The two-door's wheelbase grows slightly, by 1.4 inches, while the four-door's swells by a more substantial 2.4 inches, which should help rear-seat legroom. Jeep also publishes the Wrangler's 30.0-inch water-fording depth on the plaque as well as the two Wranglers' shared 73.9-inch width, which is 0.2 inch wider than the older JK model.

Beyond that, we also can show off one example's unique, cantilevered bikini softtop configuration as well as closeups of the JL’s modern headlight design and new X-shaped taillights. Paint scraped from screw heads on the door hinges suggests that the Wrangler's doors can still be removed, too. Take a look for yourselves in this gallery and let us know what else you see.

Jeep Wrangler 'Scrambler' truck spied again, our best look yet .
Here's what we know so far.Unfortunately, FCA is still being very careful with camouflage, and as a result, there isn't much to see here. We can definitely tell that from the C-pillar forward, the truck is practically identical to the 2018 Wrangler Unlimited, down to the rear doors that are angled to clear the Unlimited's rear wheels. That's not necessary here, so there's a large section of sheetmetal between the door crease and the fenders. We're curious how Chrysler will address that to keep it from looking awkward.
