An undisputed off-road champion and a unique vehicle for everyday urban adventures, the new generation of the iconic Jeep Wrangler offers excellent levels of comfort and superior driving dynamics. The all-new Jeep Wrangler is a one-of-a-kind vehicle that is ready to write a fresh, unprecedented chapter in the legendary history of the Jeep brand, a story which began in 1941.
It is with this clear objective that the iconic Jeep Wrangler has been completely renewed while remaining true to itself, with legendary off-road capabilities, authentic Jeep styling and advanced technology features.
The result is the most capable Wrangler ever, courtesy of unmatched technical contents, which, depending on the trim, include two advanced four-wheel drive, active, on-demand full time systems – Command-Trac and Rock Trac, plus Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, Trac-Lok limited slip differential and electronic front sway-bar disconnect.
From the roughest terrain to more exclusive city streets, the all-new Jeep Wrangler is perfectly at ease, and delivers a more modern design, that stays true to the original, combined with more open-air freedom and advanced technology features in terms of safety and connectivity. The fourth-generation Jeep Wrangler is offered in three different trim levels: Sport, Sahara and Rubicon – all available in two- or four-door configuration, and in an all-new Overland pack, exclusively on the Sahara version, ensuring a more up-scale appearance.
In Europe, sales of the all-new Jeep Wrangler will start in September.
Improved legendary go-anywhere Jeep 4×4 capability
Engineered to master the most challenging off-road tracks, Jeep Wrangler is the result of more than seventy-five years of leadership in the development of 4×4 systems. Two four-wheel drive systems are available: Command-Trac – on the Sport and Sahara trim levels, and Rock-Trac – standard on the Rubicon trim configuration, the most rugged and capable model for off-road driving. Both systems feature the new Selec-Trac full-time two-speed transfer case for a continuous monitoring and management of the torque sent to front and rear wheels.
In details, Command-Trac four-wheel drive system features a two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio, heavy-duty next-generation Dana front and rear axles with 3.45 rear axle ratio for the petrol version, and 3.73 for the diesel versions.
The system operates in 4 driving modes (plus Neutral):
- 2H (Two-Wheel Drive High Range)
- 4H AUTO (Full-Time Active On-Demand High Drive)
- 4H Part-Time (Part-Time Four-Wheel Drive High Range)
- N (Neutral)
- 4L (Four-Wheel Drive Low Range)
The new Wrangler features shift on the fly technology which allows for shifting between 2WD and 4WD High range at speed up to 72km/h.
In normal driving conditions, Command-Trac operates in two-wheel drive (2WD) and transfers 100 percent of engine torque to the rear axle.
By shifting the dedicated lever to the 4WD High position, the driver can switch to four-wheel drive mode ideal when driving on slippery surfaces, such as sand, mud, snow or ice. 4H mode can be selected to operate either in the new Auto mode – ideal for a confident and comfortable use in any driving condition thanks to the continuous monitoring and management of the torque and the automatic engagement and disengagement of the 4WD as needed to maintain traction -, or in the 4H Part Time mode that ensures the torque is always evenly distributed between front and rear axles. To tackle extremely challenging and demanding off-road tracks, drivers can use the 4WD Low mode with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio that multiplies the engine torque.
An available Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential provides extra torque and grip during slippery, low-traction situations, such as driving over sand, gravel, snow or ice.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon models provide additional off-road prowess and are equipped with the Rock-Trac 4×4 system, featuring a two-speed transfer case with 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio and front and rear heavy-duty next-generation Dana 44 axles and Tru-Lok electric front- and rear-axle lockers to tackle the most extreme off-road trails.
The standard equipment also includes a front and rear axle ratio of 4.10 for the petrol models and 3.73 for the diesel versions, Tru-Lok electric front- and rear-axle lockers to tackle the most extreme off-road trails.
Rubicon models also offer added articulation and total suspension travel with help from an electronic sway-bar disconnect. This system allows drivers to disconnect the front sway bar to deliver additional wheel travel for traversing the toughest trails. Wrangler Rubicon petrol models have a maximum and improved crawl ratio of 77.2:1 and of 70.3 on the Rubicon diesel versions – both of which makes scaling any obstacle on the trail easy.
Every Wrangler receives a “Trail Rated” badge that proves its legendary 4×4 capabilities. Trail Rated performance is the result of a series of heavy tests performed in the following areas: TRACTION, WATER FORDING, MANOEUVRABILITY, ARTICULATION and GROUND CLEARANCE.
On the all-new Jeep Wrangler, the Trail Rated badge includes the following features:
- Command-Trac 4×4 system with 2.72:1 crawl ratio standard on the Sport and Sahara models;
- Rock-Trac 4×4 system with “4LO” ratio of 4:1 and Tru-Lok locking differentials standard on Rubicon models;
- Skid plates and rear tow hooks;
- Benchmark approach angle (2-door Rubicon) of 36.4 degrees, breakover angle of 25.8 degrees, departure angle of 30.8 degrees and ground clearance of more than 25 cm;
- Up to 76 cm of water fording
- Up to 1,500 kg of towing capacity (2-door models) and 2,500 kg (4-door models).
Modern, authentic Wrangler design
The all-new Jeep Wrangler builds on a sculptural design aesthetic that is immediately recognizable with its traditional Jeep design cues: from the round headlights to the seven-slot grille; from the trapezoidal wheel arches to the visible hinges; from the folding windshield to the sport bar; from the removable doors to the open-air configurations with hard top or soft top.
Wrangler’s new exterior design is bold and rugged with a wide stance and lowered beltline with larger windows for better outward visibility, especially out on extreme trails.
The Jeep design team gave the legendary seven-slot grille a more modern look that now shows both of the outer grille slats intersecting with the headlights, paying homage to the legendary CJ model. The top of the keystone-shaped grille has been gently swept back for improved aerodynamics.
In the Sahara and Rubicon versions, the available headlights and LED fog lights feature crisp white lighting and add to the Wrangler’s distinctive look. The daytime running lights are positioned on the front of the trapezoidal wheel flares. From behind, traditional square tail lamps feature available LED lighting.
The windshield is tilted to an optimal degree to improve aerodynamics, and features a new four bolt design at the top of the windshield’s frame to allow the windshield to fold down quickly and easily. The new header bar now connects the A-pillars and remains in place even when the windshield is folded down. This allows the rear-view mirror can remain in place even when the windshield has been folded away. Two-piece body-colour fender flares with a black lower insert are standard on Sahara.
New lightweight, high-strength aluminium doors feature the size of the Torx bit tool size stamped directly onto the hinge to easily remove the doors.
All Wrangler models now feature body-coloured sport bars, which are welded to the body and feature integrated grab handles.
Jeep Wrangler is a unique vehicle thanks to the several combinations offered to owners to enjoy open-air adventure, and features different windshield and top solutions that allow customers to choose multiple configuration possibilities.
As the only authentic full open-air 4×4 SUV available on the market, the all-new Jeep Wrangler offers various top combinations to ensure even more open-air freedom.
The all-new, easy-to-use Sky One-Touch powertop strengthens Wrangler’s promise of utility and adventure by allowing occupants to retract the full-length open canvas roof with a push of a button.
It will join two additional roof configurations available on the all-new Wrangler: a new Zipperless Premium Sunrider soft top and a lighter and easy-to-use Freedom Top, a removable, three-panel hard top.
Specifically, the Zipperless Premium Sunrider soft top has been improved by adding two additional bows to manage the fabric. This new design helps to quieten wind noise and allows for easier access to partial and full open top positions.
The modular Freedom Top hard top features an easy to use three-piece structure and has been improved with the introduction of lighter Freedom panels and improved latches that enable a quicker removal and installation of the hard top. Depending on the version, Freedom Top is available either as a body-colour or black hard top.
Last but not least, the position of the spare wheel support on the rear of the Wrangler is also new, as it has been lowered by approximately 300 mm, for better visibility of both driver and passengers.
An exclusive Overland pack is available to provide a more upscale appearance to the Sahara trim. It offers unique 18-inch aluminium wheels, body colour grille with Bright accent throats and headlamp bezels, body colour hard spare tyre cover and Overland logo. The unique exterior of the Overland pack is complemented by dedicated leather interior and LED lights.
A wide variety of wheels designs is available on the all-new Wrangler. The Sport version rides on standard 17” polished painted aluminium wheels and two optional 17” aluminium wheel designs – with models outside Europe featuring standard fully painted 17” steel wheels. The Sahara version rides on standard 18” aluminium wheels and optional 18” wheels featuring the unique finish available with the sophisticated Overland Pack. The all-capable Rubicon sports standard 17” painted polished aluminium wheels with 32-inch BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain tyres and optional 17” aluminium wheels with dedicated design and a black polished finish. These configurations may change according to markets needs and specifics.
The all-new Jeep Wrangler will be available in 10 different exterior colours: Black, Firecracker Red, Billet Silver Metallic, Bright White, Granite Crystal Metallic, Hellayella, Ocean Blue, Punk’n Metallic, Mojito and Sting Gray.
