New Jeep Wrangler rendered again as debut looms closer

27.09.2017

With its alleged global unveiling at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November getting closer, Jeep Wrangler online forum, jlwranglerforums.com, has released another series of renderings depicting what the new JL Wrangler could look like.

Using the standard two-door Wrangler hard-top in both Sport and Rubicon guises as a base, the renders, based on spy shots taken earlier this month, sees the Wrangler receiving a new bumper and grille, redesigned headlights, LED daytime running light mounted on the wheel arch flanks and X-motif LED taillights.

As per previous reports, the production Wrangler, snapped last month on what appears to be factory floor of parent company Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles' Toledo, Ohio plant, will make use of aluminium to keep weight down, and also see the return of a pick-up model wearing the long dormant Scrambler name.

While FCA has so far remained mum on engine details, speculation is that the Wrangler will be powered by a new 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine dubbed Hurricane, a revised version of the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 and a 3.0-litre EcoDiesel (CRD) V6 shared with the Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

A new eight-speed automatic gearbox will reportedly replace the outdated Mercedes-Benz sourced five-speed unit used until now, with a six-speed manual standard on lower spec models.
