    Yesterday, intrepid Allpar members discovered that FCA Canada had actually posted the 2018 Jeep Wrangler “JL” user’s guide on-line , with no password or security of any kind. That’s now made its way across the Internet, showing some of the new features of the iconic off-road vehicle — which is...

    Recently, FCA shocked the Mopar and Jeep communities by claiming that the Hurricane Four would have 368 horsepower, in a filing to the NHTSA. This revelation was met with both great excitement and cynicism. Rather than debate whether the number is accurate or not, we began seeking other...

    There are numerous spy shots of the Wrangler JL now, showing cars in various states of camouflage. But what’s it sound like? You can’t hear it tackle the Rubicon, but you can hear it start up. Here are some new spy shots.

    The horsepower rating for the optional turbo-powered Wrangler launching in Toledo next month is a hot topic of debate in our forums. Is the recently reported number for real, or just a typo? Either way, the horsepower for the new Hurricane Four engine revealed by FCA in a filing to NHTSA in...

    KGP, fresh from shooting the four-door Wrangler JL without any meaningful camouflage, managed to catch this two-door 2018 Wrangler JL as well. This time, we have a close-up of the LED headlights, which seem to be a newer, different version of the ones on the current JK Wrangler. You can also...

    When KGP Photography caught the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL cruising around Michigan, devoid of its usual puffy cladding, we were finally able to see some key details that clarified how engineers worked around the need for lighter weight, aerodynamics, and rollover safety, without sacrificing...

    Glenn Paulina shot this 2018 JL Wrangler Unlimited without any heavy vinyl coverings, revealing a complete next-generation Wrangler that holds few secrets. Rumored but now clearly visible are hinges for the fold-down windshield, exposed door hinges, and the new (albeit familiar) front fascia...

    Meet the body of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL, provided by KGP Photography. The fender openings are very large, possibly supporting bigger wheels and tires for the Rubicon.  It appears that there’s a provision for venting from the fenders, to avoid trapped air. As predicted by Allpar insiders...

    The recent revelation that the next-generation, 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL will have an optional full-time four wheel drive system struck a nerve with some, who saw it as being inappropriate for the vehicle. The current Wrangler’s part-time system stays in rear wheel drive, unless the driver pulls...

    Allpar learned this week that a new 2.72:1 Selec-Trac full-time four wheel drive system will be available on Sport and Sahara models of the JL Wrangler.  This sparked immense discussion, including the difference between part-time and full-time four wheel drive. In a part-time system, the only...

    FCA has, unaccountably, put full details on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL into its dealer information systems, where they were quickly leaked to  jlwranglerforums.com . The engines will, be as Allpar has predicted for months, be a two-liter four-cylinder, with a turbocharger, direct injection...

    Production of the next-generation Jeep Wrangler is drawing ever closer, and as it does, more and more prototypes are being spotted and photographed. They are rather hard to miss. The Wrangler is shaping up to be almost exactly as Allpar sources have been saying — similar to the current models...

    Analysis. A criminal gang which has stolen at least 150 Jeep Wranglers since 2014 has been caught in California , but theirmodus operandi leaves questions about dealerships and FCA’s oversight. The gang members chose a target car, then obtained a duplicate key from a dealership in San Lucas...

    According to long-time Allpar sources RedRiderBob and oh2o, the new Jeep Wrangler and the equally new Hurricane turbo-four were still on track for production in November 2017. Toledo South, which makes Wranglers today, is to keep on making 2017 “JK” Wranglers until the end of September; it...

    Next-generation Wrangler testing has intensified as production grows ever closer. Over in Powertrain, engineers are getting ready to make eight-speed automatics that hook up to Hurricane turbo fours; and out in the open, teams are testing prototypes and mules. We’re not quite sure what the...

    Here it is — the dashboard of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler , complete with a modern UConnect system. The next Wrangler combines PT Cruiser-style round vents, which deliver a great deal of air quietly and efficiently with a vintage feel, with the most modern of FCA’s center stack designs. The...

    Jeep has launched their Moab concepts, and they run the gamut from a hot-rodded Wrangler with a 392 Hemi to a gentle treatment of the 1993 Grand Wagoneer ZJ. The Quicksand, shown above, is the hot rod; far away in concept is the Grand One, a celebration of the 25-years-past ZJ. The Safari...

    Allpar is not the first to repost them, but here are two photos of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler “JL” which appeared on the JLWranglerForums.com  — reprinted here with their permission. Both photos are of the Wrangler Rubicon.  Allpar insiders had already noted some features you can see: Roll cage...

    This new photo of the next-generation Jeep Wrangler (JL) shows its three-piece removable roof, with elements of its front bumper thanks to a camo-slip. From looking at this image, it seems as though Allpar sources were right — the outer windshield frame is permanent and provides structural...

    The Jeep Wrangler may be the only open-roof car that sells in large numbers within North America. The ability to fold down the window, though, runs counter to pressures to cut weight (by tying the sides of the body together, overhead), increase safety, and add rigidity for rattle reduction and...
