You Might Be Surprised at What Jeep Has Coming Down the Pike

Jeep has been teasing consumers and off-roaders with countless concept Wrangler and pickup truck models for years, so when news recently broke that the next-generation Wrangler – pickup truck edition – will finally head into production this year, Jeep fans everywhere were hardly able to contain their excitement.

What’s with All the Hype?

If you’re a Jeep fanatic, you’re probably aware that it’s been quite some time since Jeep has done a complete redesign of the classic Wrangler. In fact, it’s been more than a decade since they’ve fully redone this American icon! So, it should go without saying, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck has been one of the most eagerly anticipated vehicles in years.

A Brief Look at the Rumored Specs

Based on the latest reports, here are just some of the specifications fans should expect to see in the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck:
  • Aluminum-heavy body
  • More steeply ranked windshield
  • Fixed roof structure with removable panels and back window
  • Longer hood panel to accommodate the supercharged engine
  • 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with 300 hp – still unknown if it will include a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Many of the Wrangler’s iconic features (e.g. exposed door hinges, full-sized, tailgate-mounted spare tire and more)
  • Multi-configuration roof (as seen in an earlier concept model) with multiple arrangement options, including:

When discussing any vehicle that hasn’t been officially revealed to the public, or has yet to begin production, it’s important to remember that most of these specs are based almost entirely on hearsay and talk amongst auto enthusiasts. That being said, even if these features aren’t 100% accurate, it shouldn’t lessen your excitement or detract from the fact that this next-generation Jeep Wrangler is sure to be a whole new type of beast ready to take on any and all terrain.To get a sneak peak of what the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck might look like, check out these spy photos based on disguised prototypes.
