2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Luxury Concept Release date New :
What It Is: A next-generation four-door Jeep Wrangler mule undergoing testing in southeastern Michigan. We’ve seen several thinly veiled current-gen Wranglers serving as mules over the past several months, each one sporting a slightly unconventional piece of bodywork or fresh mechanicals in its nether regions, but this is the first time we’ve snagged a next-gen Wrangler doing its thing in its own skin. With plenty of miles of testing to complete before its big reveal, Jeep wisely called in the ragman to stitch up a concealing set of camouflage duds and shape-altering materials designed to send mixed messages—just get a load of the (we hope) exaggerated centerpiece in the front bumper. We haven’t seen a manufacturer go to such lengths to completely obscure a vehicle since FCA was putting the Pacifica through its trials.

Why It Matters: As we’ve said before, few modern vehicles have the iconic status of the Wrangler, and thus any clean-sheet redesign is approached by the faithful with a mixture of anticipation and skepticism. We’ve been confident all along that the new Wrangler will keep its solid front and rear axles, four-wheel drive, and body-on-frame construction, and these images seem to support that theory. Unfortunately, the heavy draping makes it impossible to determine if the body could, as has been widely reported, utilize aluminum for some or all of its construction. The same goes for the rumored-to-be-done-for fold-down windshield, as the cladding is too thick to sniff out the presence of a hinge or joint (or lack thereof). *caranddriver
