New Wrangler spy shots (updated)

by David Zatz on

New spy shots have been taken of what seems to be the 2018 Jeep Wrangler have been making the rounds, this time showing a two-door. They show nothing more than this earlier photo from an Allpar source — except for two sets of interior shots.

The interior photos are interesting because the two dashboards seem to be different. They could be “mule parts” rather than finished prototypes — parts that happened to be handy. There does appear to be space for the usual 8.4 inch stereo but not the 7-inch TFT driver information display — whether because that would be out of place, or because they used an old gauge cluster, we don’t know.

There will definitely be a new shifter — not surprising, given the eight-speed automatic that Allpar has predicted for years — and it will be electronic but almost certainly not the type that springs back annoyingly to a neutral position, which FCA has since abandoned.

The spy shots shown here clearly show a more aerodynamic front, still using the trademark round headlights, an apparently longer hood (to allow for an eight-speed automatic and/or north-south four piston engine), and a thicker front bumper that resembles European Wranglers (which have to meet more severe pedestrian-impact standards). The rear of the Jeep in this photo  seems to be unchanged, suggesting a mule; we believe they will at least change the tail-lights.

See our 2018 Jeep Wrangler page for more photos, including one of the engine.
