So last week Jeep unveiled three images of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, the latest generation of Jeeps famed off-road legend which is set to be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in a few weeks.
In true pre-show fashion, very little was revealed about the new-gen Wrangler except its design which was put out there for all to see. No half-a-headlight or vague outline this time, we got to actually see what the 2018 Wrangler would look like.
Ultimately, it basically looks the same, and that’s a good thing. We expect to see a host of new safety and connectivity features, and we know already that two-door and four-door versions will be offered along with a Rubicon model.
But that’s not all. It would also appear that the new 2018 Wrangler will be more fuel-efficient than the outgoing model.
Indeed, the EPA has already listed fuel consumption numbers for the V6-powered Wrangler Unlimited model, showing a 19 mpg average for models with a manual transmission (about 12.4 l/100km) , and 20 mpg for models with an automatic (11.8 liters per 100 kilometers).
The current Wrangler Unlimited has a posted rating of 13.06 liters per 100 kilometers.
Now, many current and future owners won’t care about this small improvement, but we are certainly looking forward to seeing what else Jeep has in store for us with the 2018 Jeep Wrangler.
