It's the beast you know and love with a new, more capable twist we know you're going to enjoy on the road and off.

Performance & Safety

The new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK is-hands-down-an off-roading champion! This is predominantly because of its remarkable internal composition, the center of which is a 3.6L Pentastar® V6. This engine grants as much as 285-hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The result of such power is the ability to tow a massive 3,500 pounds.

Combined with a 5-Speed manual transmission, the drivetrain moderates energy more evenly and offers a crawl ratio of 73:1:1. In other words, you can tread over rough terrain more carefully.

This SUV is also geared with one of the brand's famed 4x4 systems. Choices include the Commad-Trac® and the Rock-Trac®, both of which do well to increase traction over unruly roads, whether they are covered in rain, mud, snow, or some other slippery substance. Furthermore, Hill Descent Control, Hill Start Assist, and other reinforcements are included.

All the components listed above do well to make sure that drivers have stability and control at all times, and when bundled together with active and passive safety features, they make sure the ride is safer too. Electronic Stability Control, Electronic Roll Mitigation, and Trailer Sway Control are some good examples of how this model will keep you protected as you drive forward. Not to mention, there are many airbags inlaid throughout the cabin and structural barricades that respond well in the event of a collision to keep you safe. In this way, the new Jeep Wrangler JK is much like a fortress for you and your passengers.

Design & Technology

One look at the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK is enough to understand its purpose as a vehicle. Its boxy form with sharp angles and tall ride height emphasize its spunky attitude. Seeing as no two travelers embark on a journey in the same way, this SUV can by modified with several available tops such as the hardtop and soft top, but if you like breathing in the fresh air of the wild outdoors, you can opt to ride without a top and even without doors. Of course, the latter configuration is not for the faint of heart. For greater visibility, you can upgrade your ride with available LED reflector headlights and fog lamps as well-a must-have for anyone who intends to ride at night.

Yet the new Jeep Wrangler JK is more than just a means to get where you are going and provides ample comfort and convenience, too. The interior can be refined with many creature comforts like heated front seats for those colder days, a lockable center console to store your goods, and more. You even have the choice to integrate your favorite of two multimedia systems. These are:

  • Radio 130 with AM/FM radio, CD Player, MP3 connectivity and audio jack.
  • Radio 430 NAV with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, Navigation, 40 GB hard drive with 28 GB available, and USB port.

Clearly, this Jeep has no shortage of ways to make your adventures fun!
