News has been buzzing all year that 2018 is going to mean a new generation of the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The main question that everyone has been asking is when? When will be get to see the new next generation? We think we may now know! We’ve done some looking around online and found some interesting news.
“Jeep fans know the countdown clock for the new Wrangler—code-named JL—is ticking. According to an unnamed dealer source cited by JLWrangler Forums, the 2018 Wrangler will roll off the Toledo assembly line in mid-November, although some variants won’t start production until months later.”-caranddriver.com
The forum reports the four-door Unlimited V-6 hardtop will be the first out, followed by the Dual Top and softtop versions in December. Next up, in February, are the two-door V-6 hardtop and various versions of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder Unlimited. Softtop versions of the four-cylinder, in both body styles, start in March, at which point Jeep will stop building the current JK. A power top (possibly as both hard- and softtop) will be built starting in May 2018, with the diesel coming in August. A hybrid based on the V-6 will arrive later as a 2019 model.
None of these claimed production start times are confirmed by Fiat Chrysler, nor are they on-sale dates. They’re also subject to change. Fans who can’t wait to see the new Wrangler’s sleeker interior and largely same-looking body in person should book a flight to L.A., as the JL will be unveiled at the Los Angeles auto show this fall.
So while this information is not yet confirmed by the higher ups at FCA, we are hopeful to see the newest Jeep Wrangler Unlimited sooner rather than later at All Star Jeep Dealer near Town and Country!
