2018 Jeep Wrangler Two Door Spotted for the First Time



Quote:
The all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler has been spied testing once again, this time with both two- and four-door models.

The prototypes in these shots are still heavily camouflaged, but a few small design details are visible. First of all, the round headlights and iconic seven-slot grille seem to still be in place, showing that the Jeep designers donít want to stray far from the current look. Small LED light strips have been added to the front wheel arches and the exposed door hinges seen on the current model are still in place. Even the mirrors from the current Wrangler are still being used.

Inside of these prototypes, the dashboard setup is identical to the previous Wrangler, though this may a case of misdirection to keep the new interior design under wraps. Itís not clear if these model are showing production-intent design, or if FCA is simply still testing its powertrains and hasnít put together a full prototype with a new interior yet.

When it arrives, the new Wrangler will offer diesel power, likely from the same 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbocharged unit found in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500. That means that an eight-speed transmission is also a likely addition. A new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is rumored to be the base unit, while a hybrid version of the Wrangler will also be arriving in the future, around 2018.

Going lightweight is also a priority for the new Wrangler which will do so by adding plenty of aluminum.

That's true, you'd figure they would have a pic of the 2-door with a title like that. I followed the link and the 2-door pictures are actually at the end of the string of pics. they had.

Here's a couple:

Funny how they use Duratracs on the test mule.

Looks like it's a winch ready bumper?

looks like it may have the power dome hood and maybe a 75th or HR front bumper... i like the look of the front windshield a bit more angled too

I like the full body bra. Should offer some really good trail protection.

Yeah, it looks like four doors. But it looks really honky tonk style and perfect for off road drives. I love to drive one like this. Thanks for sharing those pictures. The colour and looks gives this a perfect look.

Just guessing, but with how far forward it sticks out and where the fog lights are, it "looks" a lot like the Euro bumper? Not exact, but similar. IMHO.

Given the more aero shape of the silhouette in combination with an 8 speed transmission and new engine we could see a decent uptick in MPG's.
