Other automakers may have brought their alternative fuel vehicles, to the 2018 Washington Auto Show, but Jeep showed a model for today’s many truck buyers: the all-new 2018 Wrangler. It’s the first complete changeover in the model in 11 years. The all-new, 750-hp Grand Cherokee was also in the Jeep space.
Jeep senior brand manager Kevin Metz drew particular attention to the Wrangler’s open air option, which allows the driver to open the soft top with a single push of the button. The 2018 Wrangler has regenerative braking and a 2-liter turbocharged engine that adds torque at the low end, with automatic transmission.
The Wrangler Rubicon has a raised clearance so it’s easier to replace the tires and to modify it, as many owners will want to do. It is available in limited quantities now and will be at all dealerships in the next few weeks. The base, two-door Sport model starts at $26,995 and the four-door Rubicon starts at $40,495.Download Bulletin PDF
