We’ve been anxiously waiting for the Wrangler JL’s production model to be revealed and so far, we’ve only seen it roaming around under heavy camouflage. To get us through these tough times until Jeep finally decides to unveil their next generation Wrangler, we’ve come up with a rendering of what the off-roader could look like.
So far, from what we can see in the test mule spy shots
, the windshield seems to have a steeper rake to improve the Wrangler’s aerodynamics so we’ve incorporated that into the render along with an elongated front end in order to fit FCA's 8-speed automatic transmission. Something else that has been stretched is the wheelbase, just a couple of inches for a roomier interior.
What you may not notice in the renderings are the wider front fenders and the panoramic sunroof. We first noticed the wider front fenders from spy shots taken back in May and later that same month, a rumor was circulating about the Wrangler JL’s three roof options; power soft top, hardtop glass panel, and a 3-piece hardtop. we just decided to go with the panoramic roof since it's the first something like this is appearing the Wrangler.
As for the JL’s front, its grille may be getting a bend near the top and the turns signals have been relocated to the outer fenders instead of their traditional location on either side of the grille.
Making up the JL’s rear angled illustration are taillights based on the Renegade's "X" design setup
and the noticeably missing exposed screws.
These renderings are based off of rumors, speculations, and spy photo observations from the past year and we think they’re a good representation of what the 2018 Jeep Wrangler could look like.
