Enthusiasts Someone Already Stuffed A Corvette V8 Into The New Jeep Wrangler
Jeep promises Wrangler plug-in hybrid in 2020
At the LA Auto Show, Jeep said the next-gen Wrangler will eventually be offered with your choice of four powertrains, including a hybrid and a diesel.The powertrain joins the hotly anticipated 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine that will appear in 2019, as well as the new 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that will be available when the Wrangler goes on sale in January. Purists need not fear, as the endlessly proven 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine is standard across all models.
That didn't take long.
What are two things you’re unlikely to see in your lifetime? A honest politician, and a stock. Actually, stock Wranglers aren’t entirely uncommon, but these off-roaders have long been platforms for going mild or wild in the custom department. It seems that legacy is stronger than ever with the new 2018 Wrangler, as a company called already stuffed a LS3 V8 under the hood of one. And as you can see, it’s not some cobbled-together effort that was built in a shed.

Mojitos and Lift Kits: The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Is All Ready for Mopar PartsThe two kitted-out Wranglers at the L.A. auto show aren't limited-edition decal jobs—although you can be assured those will soon follow. They're sample creations using parts from the latest Jeep Performance Parts and Mopar accessories catalog.
We don’t know too much about Bruiser Conversions, but based on the info and images at the company website it seem the folks in charge know a thing or two about Jeeps. With regards to this specific project, the LS3 crate engine came from GM Performance and infuses the Wrangler with 450 horsepower (335 kW) and an equal amount of torque. Aside from fitting the mill into the Jeep’s tight engine bay, Bruiser Conversions also managed to connect it with the stock eight-speed automatic transmission. The video below gives us a teaser of what a new V8-powered Wrangler might be like, and well, it’s short but sweet.
Cars We’re Looking Forward to in 2018
It's going to be another good yearPretty high on our list is the mid-engine Corvette. Chevrolet has tortured us long enough with camouflaged prototypes, and we can't wait for this new model that could make 850 hp through a 5.5-liter engine. It's expected to go on sale in 2019, so a reveal will likely happen sometime this coming year. The successor to the Toyota Supra, another car we've been waiting on forever, should appear in 2018 riding on a platform co-developed with BMW.
The new 2018 Wrangler is still really new, having only. In stock trim the Jeep offers 285 hp (212 kW) from a familiar 3.6-liter V6. A mild hybrid with a 2.0-liter turbo four will also be available. So yeah, the V8 certainly adds a bit of punch to the equation.
Bruiser Conversions is based in Clearwater, Florida, but per the company website there are certified installation facilities scattered around the United States. There is no mention of price for the new LS3 swap, but the company does say it's accepting pre-orders for do-it-yourself install kits as well as complete conversions done in-house.
Jeep Scrambler Spied Showing Mostly Unconcealed Tailgate .
Combining the ruggedness of a Jeep Wrangler and the utility of a pickup seems like a winning combination for Jeep. The Jeep Wrangler pickup will arrive likely under the Scrambler moniker in April 2019. It's one of the most anticipated models on the horizon, and any chance to spy the upcoming truck is a welcome opportunity. These photos catch the model in a snowy environment and provide a great view at the rear.
