Lighting Changes for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler



A report from Auburn Hills
has given us some new details on what to expect from the 2018 Jeep Wrangler.

Traditionally, the Jeep Wrangler has round headlights, but the 2018 Wrangler will offer customers LED or HID options as well. This is a great move by Jeep since even the cheapest Dodges and Chryslers can get HID headlights now.

There are more changes to the upcoming Wrangler's lighting too. The 2018 Wrangler will have its turn signals moved to the outer fenders instead of the traditional places in the grille. This was likely done for cost reduction as it would allow Jeep to use a single assembly for forward facing and side lights.

Yet another change to the turn signals would be their placement in the side mirrors along with a warning for blind spot detection.

Moving to the rear of the Wrangler, the exposed screws will be ditched in the 2018 model. The rear lights are likely going to be based on the Renegade's rear lighting.

In addition to these lighting changes, we can also expect to see long awaited variants, like a pickup, and a solid roof SUV.

I'd love to see them make it a hybrid of the two, renegade and the current setup:

That seems entirely possible. The X pattern can be integrated easily and whether it is rectangular or circular I think either shape will be fine.

No doubt, fact is, it's a wrangler and will need to maintain that raw off-roader look they're known to have, just needs to be improved with hints of this new design. I just hope they don't kill its off-road appeal

The off road appeal is the Wrangler's front fascia shpae. It just needs to keep that angled look and it'll match the rest of the lineup.

How they change the grille, if they decide to change it will be interesting. Just hope they don't dilute it.

Jeep's 7-slot grille is standard. Perhaps a slightly different version but nothing surprising.

It sure is, all that might change however is its proportions. 7 slot will always have a way to live on, much like how other brands have managed to do something similar with their designs.

Hard to see in this spy video of the Wrangler JL, but when the wind pushes the camouflage against the headlights, do they look circular or square to you?
