This year’s concepts won’t be unveiled until next week but Jeep has released two teaser images which preview the upcoming off-roaders. Given the fact that the redesigned Wrangler was introduced a few months ago, it comes as little surprise that a number of the concepts will be based on the all-new model.
The first concept is the Jeepster and it recalls the Jeepster Commando as it features a two-tone exterior with a contrasting white hardtop that has steeply sloped rear window. Jeep didn’t say anything about the model but the image suggests it is based on the Wrangler and features off-road tires as well as auxiliary lights on the hood. The rear seats have also been removed and replaced by a spare tire with beadlocks.
The second teaser image isn’t very revealing but it shows an off-road focused Wrangler which has been equipped with a new front bumper, a grille guard and a ram air hood. We can also see LED headlights and off-road tires.
Little else is known about the concepts but the Jeep Wrangler JL will be offered with three different engines including a familiar 3.6-liter V6 developing 285 hp (212 kW) and 260 lb-ft (352 Nm) of torque. Customers can also order a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing 270 hp (201 kW) and 295 lb-ft (399 Nm) of torque. The final engine is the most anticipated by fans and it’s a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 developing 260 hp (193 kW) and 442 lb-ft (598 Nm) of torque.
