In accordance to this official news, there is another one all of us should know as well. It is about the major change applied in this tough vehicle so this becomes a quite distinctive choice compared to the previous versions of the same Wrangler series. For you to know, this main change is located in the type of main material used in constructing the body. This time, aluminum, a material that is considered more and more by a lot of automakers in building their new and future cars, is the material chosen for this new generation of Wrangler.
Solid-Axle Suspension Is Kept but Folding Windshield Is Removed
It cannot be denied that the change on body material mentioned earlier is major for this 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Even so, this is not the only change you can find in the new vehicle. Still, there are some other changes that also make the vehicle to be quite different from the current series of Wrangler. The example of the changes is located in the removal of folding windshield. Yes, it is already confirmed that the new tough ride will no longer use the windshield in folding type.Some says that the automaker finally thinks this as something not critical at all. This also seems to be the result for the application of redesign concept to this 2017 ride. It means there is still a quite big possibility for other changes to be found too.
Even if changes are found here and there in this Jeep Wrangler, the old solid-axle suspensions are still kept for some reasons. These are not only for the front suspensions but also the rear ones. The manufacturer try their best in order to make sure that the keeping of these suspensions system will never affect the main goals of the production of this redesigned Wrangler. Those are to make the vehicle to be lighter than before and even better when it comes to the fuel consumption in order to make it run.
Powertrain of the New Wrangler
With the main goals mentioned earlier, it is quite clear that the type of engine used in the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will be different than before. Of course, this one will be better too. This time, the turbocharged engine will be smaller than the current engine used, which is the 3.6L Turbocharged V6 engine. However, the manufacturer still tries to make this engine powerful enough besides the fact that this should be more efficient in fuel use too. This may be the reason why the transmission system of it is upgraded this time to be 8-speed automatic transmission system which is definitely different than before. Hopefully some more changes will follow this latest development so this new versions of Jeep will be an even better choice of tough vehicle to pick next 2017.
