The Jeep Wrangler is one of the all-terrain and most iconic models currently being sold. Its story precedes it, and unlike some of its rivals, it has not been seduced by SUV fashion softening its dynamic qualities. The Wrangler is rude, spartan, efficient and very fun and keeping its essence is what the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Group (FCA) are looking for the next generation.
Officially the model will be presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show in December of this year. The event is getting closer and closer to the calendar and to prevent any details from being aired, the brand’s engineers and testers go ahead with their work. This is demonstrated by the spy photos captured by MotorAuthority, in which you can see the Jeep model performing their tests of mechanical validation.
In the photos you can see how the front of the Jeep Wrangler takes a more classic line, being dominated by the 7 bars that make up its traditional grill. The hood seems to be softened compared to the current generation and its fenders seem to be displaced several centimeters back. On them, it seems that the daytime lights and drivers have been located that could be intermittent. The secondary lights are located on the front bumper.
However, the most important changes in the Jeep Wrangler will not come hand in hand with its aesthetics. It will be its mechanical range that receives a new hybrid variant based on a new engine with four cylinders and electric assistance. With this mechanics, consumption and emissions of the Jeep Wrangler will be even lower, becoming a genuine alternative to the CRD diesel mechanics that will also carry the new model.
The next generation of the Jeep Wrangler will mark a turning point in the brand, as it will be the first hybrid model of the firm, although in its range will not miss the traditional variants gasoline and diesel. Its arrival in the market is scheduled for the second quarter of 2018 and its production will take place exclusively in the plant that Jeep has in Toledo (USA).
