Might be a concept or artist's rendering, but definitely not the real thing. For one, that is clearly a JK body. For two, those are Renegade taillights.

The Bugatti interior is a nice addition to the '18s.

I read the reddit page. The interior shot is for a different vehicle in a different article.

^^Yes, that would be the joke.

I hope they don't stick Renegade tail lights on it. We all know how picky and resistant to change our community of Jeep Wrangler lovers are. That would be worse than the square headlights.

I'm sure the aftermarket could come up w/ replacement lenses. Look @ the folks that replace the OEM taillights w/ flush mount LEDs.

Since the latest spy shots show taillights that are NOT the Renegade taillights, I think it is safe to assume we won't see them on the new Wrangler.

Yeah, but really do they need a test mule for TailLights? Testing headlights like in TFL's spotting in Colorado makes sense to see how well they illuminate the road, but taillights are likely more cosmetic in design ethos and implementation.

While I don't expect a major change, but I also wouldn't say that we're done with the last minute details. Jeep was very proud of those Jerry-Can taillights and all the other Easter eggs built-in to the Renegade.
I suspect the JL will have even more Easter Eggs as it's the Halo vehicle, and will likely include something in that area even if it doesn't duplicate the existing Renegade design and doesn't do something completely new, it likely won't be just a recycling of the existing design.
