Performance breaks down the 2018 Jeep Wrangler lineup

What's new for 2018?

Well, a lot! For several years the Jeep Wrangler has been in a generation called the JK. 2018 marked the exit from the JK and the arrival into the all-new JL generation. At a quick glance the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL doesn't look drastically difference. This makes sense because it is such an iconic vehicle so it'll never undergo huge structural changes. But, if you look closer, you'll see updates that improve ride quality, driver-friendliness, and style.

Some key changes

Grille updates: the seven-slot grille is still here, but the Wrangler JL's has a notable kink to help improve aerodynamics.

Stay cool: on the side of the front fenders you'll notice air vents. These help keep the engine cooler and reduce road noise.

Easier top removal: if cost isn't of concern, we highly suggest going with the new power roof so you can quickly feel the wind in your face.

More engines: two new engines join the 3.6L V6. There's a 2.0L turbocharged and a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6. For people who do more commuting, there is talks of a 2020 plug-in version.

Updated interior: the Wrangler used to be a little too utilitarian for the liking of some shoppers. Jeep's designers upped the ante and made the Wrangler's interior more refined, while keeping its outdoor vibe.

Clearing up confusion

The changes are straightforward, but if you've been on the Jeep website you might have been confused to see the older model still online. That's because Jeep is still selling the JK model, at least through the 2018 model year. We love the changes on the JL generation, but if you really want to save money then let us know and we'll have you test drive 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK.
