We’ve been teased with an aerial glimpse of the 2018 Wrangler's interior through the open top of a red two-door model and now Jeep has released official, close-up shots of the JL’s cabin.
They’ve managed to modernize the interior whilst keeping in touch with the model’s traditional styling to produce something unique. There’s definitely more colorful than its predecessor, the new dashboard features more red trim pieces compared to the outgoing JK’s. Even the sway bar and locker buttons are red.
Noticeably different is the redesigned gauge cluster featuring a driver information screen right between the two analog gauges. Perhaps the missing temperature and fuel gauges has been integrated into the center screen.
There’s also a new touchscreen infotainment system mounted in the middle of two large HVAC vents, presumably packing more connectivity options.
Sitting under it is a heavily updated center console area with an abundance of new buttons to play with. The climate control panel is more high tech and the sound system get a few additional knobs. There’s also a small area labeled ‘media’, but zooming in reduces picture quality so we can only assume it’s hiding a few USB ports and maybe an auxiliary jack.
This is just a glimpse of the Wrangler JL’s interior and we should see the cabin in its entirety at its the LA Auto Show debut.
