Default The Wrangler JL will Debut in Late November

<br />
Jeep JL Wrangler spy shotsArrival timing for the new Jeep Wrangler JL has arrived, along with some new details on the upcoming model.

According to Jeep Boss Mike Manley, the JL will debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, which takes place on November 29-30 this year. Manley also told Auto Express plenty about the new JL, and much as we expected, the basic formula for the Wrangler hasn’t changed.

“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.

He stressed that fuel economy, ride comfort, and interior noise have all been improved while keeping the Wrangler’s off-road capability intact. A hybrid electric powertrain is also in the plans for the JL, though it likely won’t arrive until close to 2020.

More details on the hybrid will arrive when the Wrangler debuts, though Manley did say that the Wrangler will not be going full battery electric. The torque from hybrid powertrains should be helpful off-road with the JL, though batteries bring added weight.

Thankfully, weight reduction has also been a big part of the JL development process, so expect to see new materials used on the Jeep, possibly aluminum. The high-strength steel frame isn’t going anywhere though.

At launch, the Wrangler is expected to have three engine options: an updated 3.6-liter V6 that makes around 285 horsepower, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four banger, and a 3.0-liter V6 diesel, though that engine is still awaiting regulatory approval. Production for the U.S. will begin shortly after the JL debuts in November.

Moving forward, a Jeep Wrangler pickup truck will debut in 2018 as a 2019 model, to be followed be a range-topping Grand Wagoneer model in 2020. A new sub-Renegade crossover is also a possibility from the brand.

Is this IT?

So we may just have our first look at an unwrapped 2018 Wrangler JL, courtesy of a Reddit image posted by a member of the Cincinnate JK Crew club.

The member claims he took it from a post on the group’s Facebook page, but it is unclear where the actual photo originated from.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has been very protective about revealing any info on their newest Wrangler – only stating that the vehicle will be displayed near the end of November at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

This image does seem to display some of the bells and whistles many believe the JL Wrangler will have as the hood, hinges, handles and fender vent all make their appearance.

However, like anything else with the upcoming Wrangler redesign, this picture is not official and we probably will not have a full look at the vehicle until Los Angeles.

FCA currently expects the JL Wrangler to enter production around the middle of November, and reach dealership showrooms by the end of this year.
