2019 Jeep Wrangler MODEL OVERVIEW

New for 2019

Completely redesigned for 2018, the 2019 Wrangler (JL) will add a diesel-engine option and may also receive a new special-edition model. A Wrangler pickup will probably join the lineup in the next couple years.

Trim Levels

The Wrangler is a purpose-built, off-road body-on-frame SUV available in two- and four-door body styles. Price wise, the Wrangler slots above the Renegade, Compass, and Cherokee and below the Grand Cherokee.

The four trim levels for the 2018 Wrangler (Sport, Sport S, Rubicon, and Sahara) will likely carry over and could be joined by new trims and special-edition models.

The Sport model should continue as the base model and for 2018 comes standard with 17-inch black steel wheels, a Command-Trac four-wheel-drive system with a two-speed transfer case, a 5.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with Bluetooth, a zipperless Sunrider soft top, a rearview camera, tow hooks, and skid plates. The more luxurious Sahara model will keep its 18-inch wheels, side steps, a 7.0-inch infotainment system touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 7.0-inch instrument cluster display, and dual-zone climate control. The rugged Rubicon will continue with large off-road tires, front and rear locking Dana 44 axles, the Rock-Trac four-wheel drive system, an electronic disconnecting front sway bar, and off-road rock rails.

Performance and Fuel Economy

Expect to see the 285-hp 3.6-liter V-6 and 270-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four return in 2019, in addition to the six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions. A new turbodiesel V-6 will join the lineup, making around 440 lb-ft of torque. For 2018 models, EPA-rated fuel economy ratings for the 3.6-liter V-6 ranged between 17/25 mpg city/highway and 17/23 mpg. Jeep may add a plug-in hybrid powertrain option by 2020.

Safety

Driver assist safety features are located in the Active Safety group on the 2018 model, and include blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and LED taillights. A rearview camera is standard.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The 2018 Wrangler offers 31.7 cubic feet of cargo behind the rear seats and 72.4 with the rear seats folded down.

Technology

The Wrangler will still likely offer a 5.0-, 7.0-, and 8.4-inch multimedia touchscreens and optional SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a navigation system. The standard eight-speaker audio system and the optional nine-speaker Alpine system should carry over.

What We Think

We concluded our First Drive review of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler by saying, "If you went to an automaker today and asked them to build a two-door body-on-frame trucklet with a convertible roof and almost no cargo space—riding on live axles (and oh yeah, the windshield needs to fold down and you should be able to take the doors off and hose out the waterproof interior)—you'd be laughed out of the room."

"This Wrangler, this iconic Jeep, exists because it's always existed, and this new one is the best one yet," we said. "No, Jeep faithful, they didn't ruin it. They didn't even make it just as good as the old one. They made it better in every way."

In a First Test review, we concluded by saying: "Just about the only place the new 2018 Wrangler can't match the old is in price. With JK Wranglers already flying off the lots, Jeep upped prices across the board on its new JL Wrangler … but given how much nicer the new Wrangler drives and the newfound interior quality, it's worth the premium."
