Jeep recently unveiled the 2018 Wrangler JL at the Los Angeles Auto Show and now we’re learning how much it will cost to get behind the wheel.
Car and Driver reports the entry-level Wrangler Sport will carry a base price of $28,190 which is an increase of $3,100 over the 2017 model. The four-door Wrangler Sport also sees a significant price jump as the model starts at $31,690.
Both models come equipped a Sunrider soft top, full metal doors, and 17-inch steel wheels. The Wranglers also have a push-button ignition, LED interior lighting, and an eight-speaker audio system.
Power is provided by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 285 hp (212 kW) and 260 lb-ft (352 Nm) of torque. It is paired to a six-speed manual transmission and a Command-Trac four-wheel drive system.
Moving up to the Wrangler Sport S adds convenience features such as power windows / locks, power heated mirrors, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. Other additions include air conditioning and a remote keyless entry system. Pricing starts at $31,390 for the two-door variant and $34,890 for the four-door model.
The two-door Wrangler eschews the Sahara variant but it costs $38,540 on the four-door model. It features automatic headlights, a unique grille, body color fender flares, and 18-inch aluminum wheels. Drivers will also find an automatic dual-zone climate control system, LED ambient interior lighting, a universal garage door opener, and a Uconnect infotainment system with a 5-inch display.
Last but not least, the Wrangler Rubicon starts at $38,190 and climbs to $41,690 for the four-door variant. The off-road focused models have an electronic front sway bar disconnect system as well as remote locking Tru-Lok differentials. The models also have a Rock-Trac transfer case, heavy duty Dana 44 axles, and 17-inch wheels with off-road tires.
An assortment of different options will be available and we can expect to learn more about their pricing closer to launch.
Note: Prices include a $1,195 destination charge
