2018 Jeep Wrangler Details and Features

2018 JL Jeep Wrangler

The JL Jeep Wrangler has three engine options and a new Selec-Trac 4WD system

JL Jeep Wrangler Forums from the USA always seems to have the information that Jeep aficionados want way earlier than the ‘normal’ consumers can obtain. Apparently leaked directly from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is the specification sheets that dealers will use to order the new JL Jeep Wrangler later this year in the USA. Fiat Chrysler Australia will use the same specification system to order stock for Aussie dealers. Whether we’re offered the same complete specification list is arguable, but I think, based on my knowledge and history with Jeep, it will be pretty close to the mark. The only variation may be the engine offerings – I think that Australia Jeep buyers will be offered a V6 diesel variation and the petrol Pentastar V6.  However, never say never to the four cylinder engine. So read on and discover what your new JL Jeep Wrangler will look like.

“Next-gen Jeep Wrangler details are finally out, just not the way Jeep probably wanted them to be. JLWranglerForums.com managed to get screenshots of options, packages, colors and features for the new JL Wrangler in the FCA dealer system.

The existence of a turbo-diesel option is confirmed, as well as a base 2.0-liter turbo four cylinder and the optional Pentastar 3.6-liter V6. Both V6s will come with a start stop function as well. Transmission offerings consist of a six-speed manual and eight-speed auto.

Perhaps the most surprising option on the list is a new Selec-Trac full-time 4WD system. Jeep has made two iterations of Selec-Trac in the past, appearing as far back as the Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer. The most recent system on the Cherokee/Liberty was operated by a switch that allowed you to control the transfer case, toggling through the different modes available. Of course, we’ll have to wait for Jeep to explain how this version of Selec-Trac works to know exactly what’s going on down there.

Something Wrangler fans might be disappointed in is the decision to make the Sahara trim four-doors only. The rumored power soft top appears to have made it to production as well. Even the rugged Wrangler is going to offer technological niceties such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Not exactly a surprise when you take stock of how many pavement queen Wranglers are rolling around out there.

You can have any color seat as long as it’s black (or part black) — tan is the only other color available, but it’s only in a two-tone combo with black. FCA must have been a bit hungry when trying to pick color names, because we’re left with one named “Nacho Clear Coat.” No purple is listed, but your typical gamut of colors is offered. The notable new features are rounded out with something called a “Trail Rail Management System.” Take your best guesses as to what that entails.

The all-important price tag is not a part of this leak, but this is plenty of info to chomp on for a little while.”

Hello and welcome to my new website thecarguy.com.au!

I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.

I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.

thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .

And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.

So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
