Is the Jeep Shortcut a sneak peek?

by David Zatz on

The Jeep Shortcut (and perhaps other Moab concepts) may contain sneak peeks at the 2018 Jeep Wrangler.

Jeep Shortcut

“RedRiderBob” pointed out that the grille and windshield angle are both similar to drawings made by someone who has seen the actual 2018 Wrangler. The production car will have turn signals/parking lights on the fenders, rather than their traditional spot on the grille, and there are likely to be numerous other differences; but the slight windshield and grille tilt are both present.

What else might be a hint of the future? Could one of these mules be using a prototype of the 2018 suspension and axles, too? For that matter, do the two groups of pickups, one Renegade based and the other Wrangler based, foreshadow future Jeep trucks for the US and the world?

All will be revealed — but, most likely, not for another year.
