And if you'd like to see how the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL can enhance your driving experiences, on and off the road, you owe it to yourself to come check out this bold new Jeep Brand SUV here at L.

What's new with the 2018 Jeep Wrangler?

  • Refined yet rugged exterior styling with significant updates to the front fascia
  • Improved ride quality on paved surfaces thanks to a longer wheelbase, wider track, upgraded suspension system, and upgraded steering
  • Improved ground clearance, a stiffer chassis,  and greater approach and departure angles for expanded off-road capability
  • A fully redesigned cabin with larger windows for better outward visibility, more front seat headroom, and upgraded interior materials that provide more soft-touch surfaces at common touchpoints
  • Useful storage nooks for small items like wallets, water bottles, and phones throughout the cabin
  • Improved silver and metallic interior trim elements
  • Grab handles in both front passenger-side and rear passenger-side outboard positions
  • Lockable glove compartment and center console
  • New convenience features like a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, manually adjustable lumbar support for driver's seat, standard rear air vents, redesigned standard removable doors, and a flip-down windshield.
  • New top options including a hard top with removable roof panels, a hard top with power-retractable cloth roof, and a new Zipperless Sunrider® soft top which uses connecting tabs instead of zippers to make it easier to remove.


Look under the hood of the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL and you'll find that a slew of new engine options available to you. Standard options include a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with engine stop/start mated to either a six-speed manual or new eight-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain can achieve up to 285-horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, and as well as allowing the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL to tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.

However, if you'd while most drivers will be satisfied with the standard engine, those who don't need all the power of the 3.6-liter Pentastar engine will certainly be satisfied with the 268-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine available, which features an eTorque assist system that's sure to prove useful if you do most of your driving around town, but still love a little light off-roading in your free time.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Jeep Wrangler without an extensive list of rugged equipment and legendary Jeep 4x4 systems. Fortunately, with Selec-Trac®, Command-Trac®,  and Rock-Trac® 4x4 systems and off-roading gear like Tru-Lok® electronically locking differentials,  rock rails, and even a disconnecting sway bar available on the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL, this off-roading icon is more capable than ever before.

Interior & Technology

With an exterior that exudes confidence and capability, you may be surprised to learn that the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL is surprisingly well-appointed on the inside. Yes, you can still get a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL that's outfitted to throw around in the mud all day with and removable flooring and drain plugs that make it easy to hose down at the end of the day, but you may be surprised by how sophisticated this off-road SUV can be for those who prefer a little more fit and finish. With available leather trimmed seating and crisp aluminum and silver interior trim accents, the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL can be outfitted to impress driver and passenger alike. What's more, with smart tech like the upgraded Uconnect® 4C with 8.4-inch Touchscreen, an available Alpine® Premium Audio System, and even innovative safety tech like Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL has both the strength and smarts to satisfy all your driving needs.

Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota 4Runner

  • Aside from starting at a lower price, the Wrangler also provides customers the satisfaction of knowing that you're driving an SUV that was made for the trail, unlike the 4Runner.
  • With its off-road appeal, the Jeep Wrangler also manages to transition comfortably on-road also, but the 4Runner fails to ease into daily life as well.
  • The 4Runner offers up to 21 mpg highway, but the Wrangler gives you 25 mpg highway, which means more off-roading and adventure.
  • With a Jeep Wrangler, you can enjoy up to 285 horsepower with its 3.6-liter engine, while the 4Runner's 4.0-liter engine offers just 270 horsepower.
  • The Wrangler is all-new, meaning it got a complete overhaul in style and technology, but the 4Runner could probably use an update sometime soon.
  • Because the Wrangler is meant as an off-road SUV first and foremost, it offers the choice of two- or four-doors, but the 4Runner doesn't have this option.
  • If life gets messy a lot, particularly if you go off-road into the mud and muck, then the Wrangler's wash-out interior will certainly come in handy. With the 4Runner, you'll need to pay someone big money to get the interior clean again.
  • The Wrangler offers an 8.4-inch touchscreen on select trims, while the 4Runner offers just a 6.1-inch touchscreen.
  • To have heated and ventilated seats, you'll need to spend a lot more money for these features on the 4Runner while the Wrangler doesn't charge as much for the luxury.
  • Drivers get to enjoy the experience of dozens of channels catered to your every whim, but only if you choose the Jeep Wrangler because the 4Runner doesn't offer SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
  • The Jeep Brand offers the Uconnect System, which offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in the Wrangler. The 4Runner by Toyota does not offer these features at all.
