Jeep releases photos of next-gen Wrangler at 2017 SEMA
A month prior to its official global unveiling at the 2017 LA Auto Show, Jeep has revealed three images of the 2018 Wrangler in its Sahara and Rubicon editions.
The next generation Wrangler features minor but noticeable cosmetic updates over the previous generation model. Updates include new LED headlamps, new front and rear bumpers, and an air pocket behind the front wheel arch on either side. The iconic radiator grille is now at a more upright angle than before. While other iconic Jeep elements such as the exposed door hinges, round headlamps, square tail lamps and a boxy design language still make their way into the next generation model. Besides the updates mentioned above the Rubicon model also gets new vents on the bonnet, retaining the folding windshield and removable roof and doors.
Jeep has shied away from revealing any further details as to the motor that would be powering the new Wrangler at SEMA. However, all will become clear come November 29, the start date of the LA Auto Show and will probably go on sale in the North American markets by early next year.
