The hotly-anticipated Jeep Wrangler has been unveiled in a set of images, ending months of speculation about how the latest iteration of Jeep’s legendary off-roader will look compared to its predecessors.
As predicted, the new design is more of an evolution than a revolution, with an instantly-recognisable vertical grille and round headlamps. The rectangular brake lights are also very similar to those of the outgoing model – which had lights very similar to that which went before it.
Jeep says the new design has improved aerodynamics compared to the outgoing car, with more open-air options available to those who want the wind in their hair. A fold-down windscreen will feature on the new model, which will be offered with “dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations”.
The front end of the four-door Sahara model (pictured at the top) is also home to more modern headlamps and some fresh chrome trim.
Unfortunately, the images weren’t accompanied by any information about what will power the new Wrangler – we’ll have to wait until the Los Angeles motor show for the full reveal.
Reports suggest the new off-roader will be offered with a broad selection of engines, including a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6, 2.2- and 3.0-litre turbo-diesels and a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol.
CarAdvice will be on the ground covering all the action from Los Angeles, so stay tuned for the latest on the new Wrangler.
