This Is Europe’s All-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL has finally landed in Europe as the company has introduced the redesigned model in Geneva.

Set to go on sale in the EMEA region during the second half of the year, the 2018 Wrangler has an evolutionary design with a sweptback grille which can be flanked by optional LED headlights. The updated styling continues further back as the SUV has front fender vents, new character lines and larger windows for improved visibility.

Three different roofs will be available including a Sunrider soft top and an improved three-piece Freedom Top. The latter roof is a hard top which has lighter panels and improved latches for easier installation and removal.

Of course, the biggest change is the addition of the all-new Sky One-Touch roof. It’s a fully automatic soft top which can be lowered at the push of a button.

The Euro-spec Wrangler will be offered in Sport, Sahara and Rubicon configurations with either two or four doors. Sport and Sahara models come equipped with new Dana axles as well as a Command-Trac four-wheel drive system with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. The off-road focused Wrangler Rubicon is more extreme as it has Dana 44 axles, Tru-Lok electric lockers and a Rock-Trac four-wheel drive system with a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio.

The improvements carryover to the cabin as drivers will find higher quality materials and new technology. Higher end variants offer an assortment of luxury features including heated leather seats, a heated steering wheel and an 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system with GPS navigation. Other niceties include a 7-inch LED display in the instrument cluster and an assortment of driver assistance systems such as park assist and rear cross traffic alert.

Jeep declined to mention European performance specifications but the US-spec model will be available with three different engines including a new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 that produces 260 hp (193 kW) and 442 lb-ft (598 Nm) of torque. Petrol options include a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 270 hp (201 kW) and 295 lb-ft (399 Nm) of torque as well as a 3.6-liter V6 developing 285 hp (212 kW) and 260 lb-ft (352 Nm) of torque.

    A truly amazing vehicle. Got to drive one recently and it is generations ahead of the last model, which was still an extremely practical offroad vehicle. The new version just looks that much cooler and better overall in every way.

    And it is proof you CAN make a high-quality, iconic and very profitable vehicle in the U.S.A. and ship it all over the world where it is highly sought after. Kind of proves the whole “we have to make it China” propaganda is wrong, doesn’t it?

  • I really like the new Wrangler. It proves that Jeep can compete with the best of European can offer.

  • TheHake

    I’d love one but they are just too heavy. And taxes in Europe are mostly on the weight of the car, making them extremely expensive to own.

  • Deckard_Cain

    It should be available with the 2.2 diesel engine here in Europe as well.

    It will be tariffed hopefully, and everyone will buy a
    Merc or a B M instead. The trade War is just starting.
