  Someone Already Stuffed A Corvette V8 Into The New Jeep Wrangler That didn't take long.

Edmunds gives you an idea of what you get if you equip your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the dual-top option. Director of Vehicle Testing Dan Edmunds opens up the back of the Jeep , unloads the huge box there and shares what he discovers inside.

a car parked in front of a truck© Provided by Driving.ca Over the years, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has earned an iconic status for its go-anywhere ability. This year, it’s all new, the significance of which should not be overlooked — it now has better utility, flexibility and it’s no longer a massive compromise. In the past, the off-road focus made the on-road experience rather jarring. That is no longer the case. Sure, it looks similar to the outgoing ride, but the updated styling and use of LED lighting puts a modern spin on things.

The new Unlimited is longer, wider and it now rides on a stretched wheelbase — at 3,008-millimetres in length it’s up 61 mm, which means more back seat legroom and a bump in the cargo capacity. It’s now rated at 890 litres with the 60/60-split/folding seats up and 2,005L with them flat. The floor does rise slightly towards the front seats, but it is fully functional and has the needed tie-downs along with a small underfloor storage bin.

2018 JEEP WRANGLER Interior and Exterior Review - These renderings very skillfully incorporate everything we saw yesterday into glorious high-resolution

2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited price range, listings near you, expert review , consumer reviews , and more. I just traded my 2004 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with 293,000 miles in for a new 2017 Wrangler Unlimited Willys. The new Jeep is amazing

Folding the windshield forward, removing the Freedom panels and rear roof section along with the new aluminum doors is easier than ever before, making the transition from hardtop wagon to open-air buggy a simple proposition — it comes with the tools required and fewer attachments to wrangle. The beauty is there’s still a full roll cage left when devoid of the body bits.

The only sacrifice to the ability to remove much of the body is a little more wind noise at highways speeds and the power window switch placement — they sit in the centre stack and somewhat out of the way.

Inside, the Sahara arrives nicely attired, but it does need some options to round out its plusher side. The tester arrived with the Cold Weather group ($895) , which adds a heated steering wheel and front seats, leather buckets ($995) and the Uconnect 4C infotainment system ($1,395) with navigation and a solid Alpine sound system. The beauty of the last option is the ease of use. It is the most intuitive infotainment system on the market. Doing anything from pairing a phone or punching in a destination to accessing Apple CarPlay or Android Auto is the model of simplicity.

The Jeep Wrangler-Based Pickup Truck Will Probably Look Like This

That additional length is evident in these renders, which move the axle farther aft of the rear doors.

Fully redesigned for 2018 , the Jeep Wrangler sits close to the bottom of our compact SUV rankings. With the rear seats up, the Wrangler Unlimited has nearly 32 cubic feet of cargo space, which is The 2018 Jeep Wrangler has not yet been fully crashed tested, but it earns three out of five stars in the

Research the 2018 Jeep Wrangler with our expert reviews and ratings. Edmunds also has Jeep Wrangler pricing, MPG, specs, pictures, safety features Unlimited Sport S 4dr SUV 4WD. Consumer ratings and reviews are also available for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler and all its trim types.

As for the driver’s lot, it still has a sit-up-and-beg driving position, which is the best when off-road, but the on-road sightlines are now better and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert along with a reverse sensing system is now offered in the Safety-Tec group ($845). Frankly, it should be standard.

One of the biggest improvements is the on-road ride quality. Gone is the jarring suspension in favour of a setup that smooths the way without introducing unwanted body roll. It’s also more responsive and sharper to the feel. No, it’s not sport-car-like, but it has much better stability and on-road civility, which, after a week, proved to be most welcome.

For the diehard off-roader, the better suspension and larger footprint does not hurt the backwoods ability — the approach, departure and breakover angles as well as the ground clearance are all slightly better. This lot when combined with the tight turning circle means the agility is as good as before, and this in spite of the longer wheelbase. It all makes for a better off-road experience. For those that care, the Wrangler Unlimited is Trail Rated, meaning it passes the traction, ground clearance, off-road articulation, maneuverability and water fording tests from the Nevada Automotive Test Center (NATC). The water fording is rated at a maximum of 762 mm.

  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.

After a week with the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited , it is clear Jeep has found the solution. The new Wrangler is every bit as capable as its uncompromising ancestors, yet it also affords premium amenities and ride quality to rival traditional SUVs . The Land Rover Discovery can hang with the

Edmunds' expert review of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler provides the latest look at trim-level The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon (3.6L V6 The Jeep is not a silent SUV , but you knew that by looking at it. Wind flows around its boxy body, and tire

The one thing that carries over is the 3.6-litre V6 engine. It’s rated at 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It now works with a new eight-speed automatic transmission ($1,595) — a six-speed manual is standard. The broader ratio range makes much better use of the engine’s power than the old five-speed auto. As such the launch is crisper and the mid-range stronger, which brings an athletic run to 100 kilometres an hour of 7.2 seconds, and it has an easy highway demeanour. The automatic is quick to shift when left to its own devices and it has a manual mode, which will likely only be used when off-road.

The intriguing option is the 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder with Jeep’s eTorque system. It pumps out 270 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. It is down slightly in horsepower, but the torque is stronger and shows up much earlier, which means better usable power. It also promises better fuel economy — the test rig’s V6 returned an average of 13.3 litres per 100 kilometres, which is pretty thirsty.

All Unlimited models arrive with Jeep’s Command-Trac 4×4 system. The smart money will pick the Selec-Trac ($795) system. It moves things from part-time to full-time and offers two-wheel-drive, four-wheel Auto, four-wheel Lock and four-low with a 2.72:1 crawl ratio. The Auto setting sees the system switch between two- and four-wheel-drive as needed, and it does so seamlessly. There’s also a neutral position, which allows the Unlimited to be flat-towed behind another vehicle.

The outgoing Wrangler Unlimited was all about compromise. Its awesome off-road ability meant suffering when driving on road. That, as noted, is no longer the case. In both disciplines it is now significantly better with much more refinement regardless of the terrain. Throw in the upgraded interior, better flexibility and you have, for the adventurer, the boss ride.
