2018 Jeep Wrangler rendering

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler — and the 2019 pickup truck based on it — will get second-generation eight-speed automatics, according to reliable source oh2o. He pointed to two different automatics:
  • 850RE (Chrysler-built, 500 Nm capacity) for the gasoline engines
  • HP75 (ZF-built, 750 Nm capacity) for the diesel

The engines chosen for the trucks may be surprising, though not when considered in the context of the eight-speed automatic, which uses more of the engine’s power.
