The Jeep Wrangler Pickup has been confirmed for some time now, but Jeep has been quiet on the details. Between spy shots and insider information, we know the pickup will use the upcoming 2018 Wrangler JL’s frame, front styling, cab, interior, and powertrains. The mystery still remains as to what the cargo bed looks like and the materials its constructional from. What’s more, Jeep has yet to define the exact target audience for the Wrangler pickup, otherwise known as the JT. Will it offer class-leading payload and towing or will it be more focused on off-road performance? While we can’t say for sure, we’ve got some strong indications of Jeep’s intentions with its 2019-model-year pickup.

The Wrangler Pickup will ride on a lengthened version of the Wrangler Unlimited JL’s frame to accommodate the extra length needed for the bed. This means a longer, more stable Wrangler for on-road driving and trailer towing, but a slightly less maneuverable and (dare I say) capable Wrangler for off-roading adventures. It’s the break-over angle that will suffer the most, making the Wrangler pickup more vulnerable to high centering. Still, expect the JT to come standard with 4WD and Jeep’s Trail Rated rating.

Update 08/22/2017: A report from JeepScramblerForum.com shows confirmation the Jeep Wrangler pickup will be called the Jeep Scrambler, a name already associated with Jeep pickups of the 1980s. What’s more, CAD drawings show the extended frame and upgraded Dana axles. Also confirmed is the pickup’s use of the 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6.

PostHeaderIcon Holy Toledo! 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Breaks Cover

Well, it’s finally happened – the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL has been spotted without camouflage. The next-generation Jeep was reportedly spotted inside Jeep’s Toledo assembly plant and sent to our friends at JLWranglerForums. The grainy photo was undoubtedly not supposed to be taken, as evidenced by the limited view it affords of the new Wrangler Unlimited. Still, there are plenty of details to pour over.

First, it’s clear this is a four-door Wrangler Unlimited, otherwise known as the JLU. It’s lack of badging, knobby tires, and rock rails suggests this is a Sport model, though its hood features vents – a previous sign of an upper-class model or special edition. The windshield bump-stops on the hood have been redesigned, too. Also visible is the side vent integrated just behind the front fender. It’s smaller than anticipated, but thankfully doesn’t distract from the Wrangler’s classic lines. And speaking of lines, the cowling panel and doors have strong creases, helping break up the flat, vertical sides seen on the previous Wrangler JK. New side mirrors are present, too, with integrated turn signals. Gone are the push-button door handles, replaced with pull-style handles in black. The front fenders carry a new shape and appear molded from richer, higher-quality plastic. This particular Jeep has the soft top option, which we’re glad still exists. Unfortunately, the photos don’t show much of the interior, beyond the black seats covered in protective plastic. Of course, at this rate, we’ll have a full view of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL long before its official debut at the 2017 LA Auto Show in November.

PostHeaderIcon Juicy Jeep Wrangler JL Details Leaked, Including Full-Time 4WD!

Fiat Chrysler can’t keep the cat in the bag with its upcoming 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL. The latest leak is massive in scale, unloading details of trim packages, paint colors, and order codes, complete with all their corresponding options. The info comes straight from FCA’s online dealership ordering system via the fan forum JLWranglerForums. Image screenshots confirm the authenticity while giving an unprecedented glimpse at what Jeep’s internal operations. This leaves only the final design, engine output specs, and MSRP to speculation. But with the Wrangler’s debut scheduled for the LA Auto Show in November, there’s still plenty of time for more leaks.

Leading this batch of leaks is the addition of a power-retractable soft top, the conformation of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6, the axing of the luxury-minded Sahara trim for the two-door Wrangler, and the debut of a full-time 4WD system reserved exclusively for the four-door Sahara. Jeep purists shouldn’t fret, though – the Sport and Rubicon trims return, along with an optional Heavy Duty Electrical Group (supposedly for running extra lights and a CB radio), and something called the “Trail Rail Management System.” Six tire and four wheel options are present, too, with wheels sized at 17 and 18 inches. Seven color choices will be offered, along with the return of a tan soft top. The AEK Electronic Infotainment System Group includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and Alpine returns as the premium audio system.

PostHeaderIcon Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock – Driven

Jeep is hardly the oldest automaker, but it’s arguably one of the most iconic. Its premier vehicle, the Wrangler, is slathered in blue-blooded Americana and glorified war history that transcends our continent and into every corner of the globe. Show anybody anywhere that seven-slotted grille and round headlights, and you’ll be rewarded with “Jeep!”

It’s no secret Jeep is completely revamping the Wrangler for 2018, giving it new life with more creature comforts and technology while not diluting any of its rugged off-road capabilities. But before that happens, we’re talking a close look at the current version, the Wrangler JK. It debuted in 2007 and has undergone relatively few changes. Jeep upgraded the interior in 2011 and swapped in the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 in 2012 to replace the lazy 3.8-liter V-6. Beyond that, Jeep has relied on special editions to keep the Wrangler fresh. But despite the on-paper stagnation, the Wrangler has exploded in popularity. Jeep went from selling 80,000 Wrangler TJs in 2006 to 202,702 Wrangler JKs in 2015. Much of that can likely be attributed to the Wrangler Unlimited, the four-door version of the two-door SUV. Families could finally justify a Wrangler for both commuting and weekend getaways. Then came the explosion in aftermarket support from companies solely devoted to selling custom parts for the Wrangler. The Jeep community grew and folks hopped on the bandwagon. And who wouldn’t? Just look at it. Read along as I attempt to objectively revaluate a vehicle I’ve been passionate about since the 4.0-liter inline-six was the engine of choice.

PostHeaderIcon 2017 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon: Highs & Lows

If ever there were a vehicle that could be described as “ionic,” the Jeep CJ/Wrangler would be it. It’s overall shape hasn’t changed much since the U.S. entered WWII in 1941, and neither has its off-road capability. The current version, the Wrangler JK, has been around a decade now, having debuted for the 2007 model year. By now you know Jeep is readying its replacement with the 2018 Wrangler JL – an SUV rumored to be far superior to the JK in nearly every way, both in on-road comfort and off-road ability. But before the last new JK rolls off its Ohio assembly line, I spent a week living with one of the most hard-core versions: the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock.

Now, if you’ve been living under a rock and have to ask yourself what makes a Rubicon Hard Rock, take the time to read my explanation. For the rest of us, we can explore the Wrangler’s highs and low – its loveable characteristics and loathsome traits. The Jeep certainly has both, and you’d better be fully aware of each should you purchase one, much like the 191,774 customers did in the U.S. in 2016 alone. Of course, these are just my opinions, so feel free to tell me yours in the comments below.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Jeep Wrangler To Debut At LA Auto Show

The upcoming and highly anticipated 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL will debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show in late November. That’s the official word from Jeep CEO Mike Manley, originating from an interview with Auto Express. What’s more, Manley confirmed the Wrangler will have a hybrid powertrain option, the details of which will be announced before the end of 2017. Thankfully, the Wrangler will still have the rugged looks and off-road capability of the current Wrangler JK we’ve come to love, but with healthy updates to both styling details and interior NVH.

“It’s definitely going to move the game along but you will absolutely know it’s a Wrangler – for sure! If we did anything that departed from the Wrangler formula I don’t think I’d be able to get out of the States,” said Manley, a native of Great Britain. It’s clear the next-generation Wrangler will have a familiar shape thanks to numerous spy shots of prototype vehicles seen scurrying around Detroit.
However, improvements to the Wrangler’s everyday livability will be a welcomed addition. “You’ll be really surprised how far we’ve been able to move things in terms of capability, fuel economy, ride comfort, noise and all of those things, said Mike Manley. “I’m very pleased with where it is.”

PostHeaderIcon What Makes a Rubicon Hard Rock?

This week has a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock in my driveway. It’s a mouthful of a name, but its title is nothing compared to the laundry list of upgraded equipment bolted to this hard-core SUV. Things like rock rails, a heat-reduction hood, mud tires, and locking differentials just scratch the surface. As such, I wanted to take a deep dive into what constitutes a Rubicon trim – and the subsequent Hard Rock model – of the venerable Jeep Wrangler JK.

The current Jeep Wrangler, codenamed JK, has been around since 2007. The JK revolutionized the Wrangler with the addition of a four-door model called the Wrangler Unlimited. Since its introduction, the Wrangler JK has undergone minimal changes. An improved interior came for 2011 followed by the then-new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 in 2012. Beyond that, only special edition models have kept the Wrangler fresh. Of course, Jeep is selling plenty of JKs, so there’s not much need to change. In fact, the Wrangler’s best year was 2015 when 202,702 Wranglers found homes in the U.S. alone. Jeep also sold 20,880 JKs in Canada that year, along with thousands more in markets around the world. But the JK’s days are numbered. Jeep is rolling out an all-new Wrangler for 2018, codenamed the JL. However, that doesn’t discount the awesomeness that is the current Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock. Keep reading to find out why.

PostHeaderIcon Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler has been an icon of American independence since 1941 when the U.S. Government commissioned a small, go-anywhere vehicle that could support troops heading into battle. It was the Willys Overland company that won the design, and with the help of the Ford Motor Company, built thousands of MB Jeeps. Fast forward to 2016 and the Jeep spirit lives on within the Wrangler. The current Wrangler, known as the JK, got its start in 2007. An interior refresh in 2012 followed by a welcomed powertrain update in 2013 has kept the JK fresh, with sales far exceeding any Jeep vehicle in the past. Much of that success is thanks to the Wrangler Unlimited – the four-door version of the SUV. With room for five, all the capability of the standard Wrangler JK, and an exploding aftermarket support system, the Wrangler took off. Jeep sold more than 202,000 Wranglers in 2015 alone – surpassing 2014’s quota by some 27,000 examples. In fact, Wrangler sales have consistently grown by roughly 20,000 units since 2011. What other vehicle can say the same?!

Nevertheless, the Wrangler JK’s run is coming to a close. Jeep’s parent company, FCA, is now burdened with the daunting task of creating a new Wrangler – something that appeals to the masses yet somehow stays true to its roots. The Jeep loyalists are a tough bunch to please, so the new generation of Wrangler has to excel at everything. It has to handle better, offer more creature comforts, and more in-dash technology, yet still be cleanable with a garden hose, inside and out. Rumors have been slowly surfacing, so we decided to piece together what we had. This original rendering is based on both hearsay and solid information from FCA brass. Take a look below for both front and rear renderings. This is our best estimate of what the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL will look like.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Jeep Wrangler JT Pickup Rendered Using Inside Information

Jeep’s upcoming Wrangler-based pickup is attracting plenty of attention. It combines the go-anywhere capability of the Wrangler with the utility of a mid-size pickup truck. It’s shaping up to be a favorite among Jeep’s loyal following. That’s clearly evident by JLWrangler Forum’s latest rendering of the pickup, codenamed JT. And like the renderings of the upcoming Wrangler JL, these latest artist impressions are based on insider information, spy shots, and even a leaked image from Jeep of the final product.

JLWrangler Forum created two versions of the Wrangler pickup – both a four-door JTU and two-door JT. While both versions look amazing, we have not seen a two-door version being tested in the wild or heard news regarding its availability. Modern two-door pickups are generally relegated to fleets, with only a tiny percentage finding homes with typical consumers. As such, it’s hard to imagine Jeep building a two-door JT. Still, anything is possible at this stage. Jeep is expected to launch the next-generation Wrangler JL in the coming months, before it goes on sale for 2018. The JT pickup is expected a year after that, hitting dealerships for 2019.

PostHeaderIcon The 10 Most-American cars Built in 2017

Each year, the American University’s Kogod School of Business conducts a survey of the automotive industry. The D.C.-based school maps out the most American-made vehicles, regardless of their brand. Seven key criteria are used in determining the rankings, but it comes down to the percentage of American and Canadian parts used and location of the vehicles’ assembly, research and development, and corporate headquarters.

Though Kogod’s inclusive survey ranks every vehicle sold in the U.S., we’re focusing on the top 10. Much of the list hasn’t changed over 2016, but there are a few additions and missing models. An update in scoring for 2017 allows half-points for automakers (FCA, in particular) that have headquarters in multiple countries. As such, the Jeep Wrangler joins the list, despite the vehicle itself not changing. For a full explanation of the points system, check out Kogod’s website.

Surely you’ve heard the news that Jeep head-honcho Mike Manley confirmed a pickup version of the next-generation Jeep Wrangler during an interview at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. Since then, we’ve been busy listening to rumors and developing sketches of what we envision the Jeep Pickup will look like. In the meantime, we had already created a rendering for the next-gen Wrangler SUV, so attaching the cargo bed to the Wrangler didn’t involve rocket science. The new Wrangler, presumed to be dubbed the JL, will likely debut for the 2018 model year. It’s highly likely Jeep will release the pickup version alongside the Wrangler SUV, as Manley confirmed the Wrangler pickup would be available before 2019. Both the Wrangler and Wrangler pickup will share the same chassis, drivetrain, interior, and most exterior parts, keeping costs down and maintaining the Wrangler image across both vehicles. The pickup will likely be available only as a crew cab, short bed configuration, built off the Wrangler Unlimited chassis.

Jeep will likely have to extend the Wrangler’s frame to accommodate the extra length needed for the bed. This means a longer, more stable Wrangler for on-road driving and trailer towing, but a slightly less maneuverable and (dare I say) capable Wrangler for off-roading adventures. It’s the break-over angle that will suffer the most, making the Wrangler pickup more vulnerable to high centering. As for the name, Jeep could resurrect the Scrambler name, a moniker that dates back to the CJ-8 of the 1980s. There’s also the Gladiator name, most recently seen on the Wrangler-based pickup [concept->mot169.html from 2005. Regardless of its name, the Wrangler pickup will be an exciting addition to the Jeep lineup. With that in mind, let’s dive into the speculated details.

Updated 5/26/2017: The upcoming Wrangler pickup was caught testing once again, this time with what appears to be an official bed. Check out the spy shots section below to see the latest pictures and to read more about it.


PostHeaderIcon 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL to get SRT Demon Edition, Inside Source Says!

Jeep will build a 750+ horsepower Wrangler Unlimited with all the racing components found on the upcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, including the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 and Drag Mode. The information comes directly from TopSpeed’s anonymous inside source that works closely with SRT projects. Best of all, the Jeep will be called the Demon Wrangler.

“Jeep is expanding its boundaries with the Grand Cherokee SRT Trackhawk, but some in the company though more was needed,” said our informant during a chat on the dark web. “The Wrangler is our hottest product, so we figured a track-focused edition would get plenty of traction – pun intended.”

The Demon Wrangler will use super wide, 315-series performance tires from Nitto, while its 4WD system is upgraded to a full-time AWD system with beefy components able to withstand hard launches. The interior is complete with a flat-bottom steering wheel, a five-point racing harness, and the Performance Pages on the new Uconnect system.

Under the hood, the Hemi V-8 will use the A/C to chill the liquid-to-air heat exchanger, just like the Challenger Demon. The transmission brake is also present, allowing the Demon Wrangler’s supercharger to reach full boost before launching.

Our inside source says official speed trials have not been completed, but preliminary runs show the Demon Wrangler hitting 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 10.82 seconds at 125 mph – just a hair’s breath slower than the Challenger Demon due to wind resistance.

The insider was adamant these details are mythical, due in large part to a Jeep’s inability to wrangle demons. Happy April 1st, everybody.


PostHeaderIcon Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon Is Spec-Ops Worthy

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon-0

The actual vehicles the Special Forces use on their reconnaissance missions cost a lot more than the 40 grand this Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon edition costs. But I don’t think they would object if sue to budget cuts or whatever they get the Jeep instead. Point is, the Rubicon Recon is built to take some serious punishment.

Envisioned as one of the most off-roady versions of this model, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon comes with a stronger front axle, enhanced rock rails and heavy-duty cast differential covers, plus rock rails that are shortened to accommodate up to 35-inch tires. There is also four-wheel-drive system with electronic-locking front and rear Dana 44 axles and a Rock-Trac transfer case with a “4-Low” ratio of 4:1, giving the Recon a crawl ratio of 73.1:1.

Other off-road highlights, which also contribute to the badass looks of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon include a half-inch lift, new 17-inch Low Gloss Granite Crystal-painted aluminum wheels wrapped in 32-inch BF Goodrich KM off-road tires, optional body-color fender flares and a dual-vented Power Dome hood with a black-silhouette “Rubicon” decal on both sides. You can have the truck in Black, Bright White, Billet Silver, Firecracker Red, Gobi, Rhino and Granite Crystal.

Priced from $39,145 for the two-door model and $42,945 for the Wrangler Unlimited (four-door) model, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon also has an exclusive interior with black leather heated seats with a “Rubicon” embroidered logo and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with red accent stitching, black vinyl-wrapped front door armrest and console lid with black stitching, red accent netting on front and rear door pockets and the center console, and red accent-colored seatbelts.

PostHeaderIcon Is This the Grille for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler?

The upcoming 2018 Jeep Wrangler – known as the JL – is set to make its debut sometime in the near future, and for Jeep fanatics, this is good news. But, the rumor mill has been very busy, and some are worried that the next-gen model, which replaces the decade-old JK – won’t stay true to its roots. To put it simply, the JL’s success relies heavily on whether or not Jeep can deliver a modernized Wrangler that handle better, be more comfortable, is loaded with technology, but can still be cleaned by spraying a little water inside and out. All of the usual media outlets, including ourselves, have created renderings in anticipation of the JL’s long-awaited debut, and just recently, a sheet metal fabricator sent JL Wrangler Forums a picture of what is supposedly the grille of the upcoming JL.

From what we’ve been told, the grille was obtained in the course of a job the anonymous sheet metal fabricator was working on. And, be that is it may, one can’t argue with the fact that it does, indeed, look authentic. It features a widened, seven-slot layout and is even void of the turn signal lights that have been moved and integrated into the front fenders. It also features the mid-section curve. If we had to bet, we would say this is the real deal, but we’ll leave that up to you to decide for yourself.

When it comes to the JL very little is actually known. We’ve seen a leaked photo of a Rubicon hood that was being used for testing, and now we’re looking at this grille. Rumor has it that Jeep may reposition the side-view mirrors to address the legality of on-road usage with the doors removed. When it comes to the roof, there is said to be three different options, including a powered soft top, a hard top glass panel, and a true, three-piece top. This in itself is big news if it turns out to be true, as many have said that lack of a removable roof would be a deal breaker. The other big thing that we’re concerned with is the engine options that are said to include an updated version of the 3.6-liter Pentastar and the addition of a 3.0-liter, EcoDiesel, V-6 that is borrowed from the Ram 1500. Both should be available with the eight-speed ZF automatic transmission while a six-speed manual transmission should also be on the table.

PostHeaderIcon Super Off-Roader: Jeep Wrangler by Forgiato

Jeep Wrangler Forgiato-0

The guys at Forgiato Wheels are very fond of Jeep Wrangler on the whole, but they don’t like the way the car looks and feels and goes. That’s why every time they get their hands on one of these cars they set about modifying pretty much everything about it. The good thing is, more often than not these changes are for the better.

In the case of this particular Jeep Wrangler, which is an Unlimited Sport model, the boys actually held back a bit, content with only modifying the SUV’s wheels and tires as well as suspension. Usually that would only be the start. They’d then change every body panel and install every after market part there is.

But this Wrangler remains pretty much standard in the way it looks, except for the bumpers and wheel arches – necessary changes to house the new wheels and suspension. Speaking of wheels and suspension, this Jeep gets a set of absolutely massive Forgiato ESPORRE wheels in candy blue with chunky off-road tires, and suspension upgrade consisting of high performance coilover set-up with trailing arms, control arms, and springs.

Other visual mods include an LED lights bar and some blue accents around the sills and door handles as well as the windscreen. You know, the lightest Forgiato treatment could well be the best.

PostHeaderIcon AutoGuide Gets Acquainted With The Jeep Wrangler Willys Edition: Video

Very few cars, if any, embody America quite like the Jeep Wrangler. The timeless off-road vehicle has been at the forefront of American’s off-road adventures dating back to the last century. This kind of tradition hasn’t aged with time and the perfect embodiment of that is the Wrangler Willys Wheeler Edition, a special edition Wrangler that pays homage to Jeep’s long and storied history with the US military. Recently, AutoGuide took some time to get acquainted with the Wrangler Willys to go over all the details of the special edition model and, more importantly, to determine why the Wrangler continues to be one of America’s most popular vehicles.

One of the Wrangler Willys Wheeler’s most defining characteristics is it’s unique exterior package. Unlike other Wranglers, this model comes with a unique Army Green paint finish and black decals written in military font. That’s just the start of it. Aesthetics aside, this variant of the Wrangler is loaded with off-road features that make it well-suited for the roads less traveled.

There’s more to the Wrangler Willys Wheeler’s Edition that I’m putting on here and the only reason I’m saving all the juicy bits is because I want you to watch the video for yourself. I can talk ’till the cows come home, but there’s nothing like watching it run roughshod over rugged terrains to get a better understanding on why the Wrangler Willys is a special kind of Wrangler and why the Wrangler itself has etched its name into America’s automotive history.

Kahn Design’s booth at this year’s Geneva Motor Show is shaping up to be quite a spectacle. Besides the unique Aston Martin-based Vengeance Flying Huntsman 110 6×6 Defender Double Cab Pickup, the British firm is also bringing this, Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk, to the show.

Now, as you can see in the picture Kahn’s Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk is sort of matte grey. But that’s not the point. When this package becomes available you’ll be able to choose whatever color you want. Black Hawk refers to the styling package which is a new take on the tuner’s Chelsea Truck Company CJ300 kit we’ve featured here a number of times.

So Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk comes with new and very well-designed grille and bumpers, sexy new side panels including front wings and rear fender extension, new side steps, sport hood, Kahn RS wheels, and, one would imagine, an interior package with items such as sport seats, Kahn steering wheel, diamond-stitched leather upholstery and a Churchill clock.

Kahn’s other 2016 Geneva highlights include Black Kirsch over Madeira Red Range Rover Vogue and an Imperial Blue Project Kahn Range Rover Sport, both showcased for the first time in Pace Car specification.

Wrangler Sahara CJ300-0

Kahn Design’s Chelsea Truck Company has released a new version of their CJ300 Jeep Wrangler Sahara based on the four-door model. What sets this one apart from the other packages they have on offer for this SUV is the cool military theme it is boasting.

This Kahn Jeep Wrangler Sahara looks pretty unique thanks to a Military Green paint job complemented with Piano Black Door handles, fuel filler cap and mirrors as well as a four-slot grille, 17” Satin Black Jeep 1941 wheels, Copper brake callipers, a new set of mud flaps and a cross-hair exhaust system. There is something about this color combo that just works for the Jeep, most likely because it brings to mind the old Willys Jeep.

Inside the cabin, Kahn Design Jeep Wrangler Sahara CJ300 features quilted and perforated black leather seats with matching stitching, a treatment also given to the centre glove box and arm rests. The car also gets a bespoke new steering wheel. As always, every single details here is customizable based on the customer’s desires. Based on the 2.8 Diesel model, the CJ300 Wrangler is available for £39,975.
