2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited gets a slight price hike

Article by Christian A., on November 8, 2017

Jeep did not warn us that they will be releasing the 2018 Wrangler soon, but surprisingly, it made an unexpected online debut on November 1st at the SEMA show in Vegas. This off-roader has been highly anticipated, and finally, here it is. It features a light evolution, as well as some added modern equipment. Also, thanks to details that have been leaked on the Jeep website, we already know how much it will cost.

If you go and check out the images, you can get the four door 2018 Wrangler Unlimited Sport JLU in the United States for $30,445, plus and extra $995 for delivery. This model will still be Jeep’s entry-level four-door, and you guys may notice a little price increase ($2,550) over the 2017 model. On the other hand, the 2018 Sport JKU will still have an asking price of $27,895 just like the older model.

Another leaked list shows the whole lineup of Jeep models including the three trim levels and options that will be available. The document states that the base Sport model will not come with standard air conditioning. However, it will come standard with features like three separate tow hooks, electronic stability control, tinted glass, a fuel tank skid plate, hill start assist, and a five-inch Uconnect Infotainment system. Of course, expect the higher models like the Rubicon and the Sahara to gain more features such as power heated mirrors, and remote keyless entry.

That is all we have got for you so far, and if you want more details, then you will have to wait for Jeep to release the new Wrangler as a whole later this month at the 2017 LA Auto Show. However, the company did mention an “advanced fuel-efficient powertrain”, which we are guessing could be a four-cylinder turbocharged engine, a turbodiesel option, and even a hybrid. We are also expecting a newer version of the 3.6 liter V6 that can be found in the current model, as it was rumoured that this will be carried over. The engine will also be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

All these information that we have just shared were only taken from leaked documents, and Jeep has not officially confirmed them just yet. Let us just wait until November 29 when the 4x4 makes its official debut on in LA. For the meantime, you can drool over the photos of the Wrangler first.

What are you most excited about the upcoming fourth generation Jeep Wrangler? Do you think that the slight price hike is reasonable? We would like to hear from you guys. To be honest, we are just as excited to see it in the flesh.
