Jeep has shown off its all-new Wrangler and while details are sparse, pictures give us a good look at the capable SUV, both inside and out.
Jeep claims that its new Wrangle boasts more 4x4 capability, new fuel-efficient engines, more ways to drop the top as well as additional safety technology. While the design has not changed dramatically, minor cosmetic differences will be noticeable to keen-eyed observers.
Upon the Jeep Wrangler's introduction, it will be available in 2- and 4-door guises and in 3 trim levels: Sport, Sahara and Rubicon. The Sport trim has tow hooks, electronic stability control, tinted glass, a fuel tank skid plate, hill start assist, keyless go, full-size spare wheel, traction control and a 5-inch Uconnect infotainment system.
Sahara models feature air conditioning, heavy-duty suspension with gas shocks, leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated electrically adjustable mirrors, a rear stabilizer bar, remote keyless entry, a security alarm, plus a 7-inch infotainment screen. Finally, the hardcore Rubicon has an 8.4-inch Uconnect system, Tru-lok front and rear axles, rock protection sill rails, performance suspension, 17-inch off-road tyres, front disconnecting stabiliser bar, Dana wide (front and rear) axles, as well as a 4.10 rear axle ratio for hardcore offroading.
Customers will be able to customise their Wrangles via the comprehensive Mopar catalogue. We predict the new Jeep Wrangler will become available in the South African market around the middle of 2018.
