Did someone leak the first look at the next-generation Wrangler’s grille?

We may be getting the first look at what the new Jeep Wrangler’s grille will look like.  Jeep has been keeping the new Wrangler under wraps.  It is one of the most anticipated by Jeep fans due to the Wrangler being seen in the current line-up as the throw-back to the original Jeep.  With new Jeep models like the Grand Cherokee and the Cherokee having a newer look to them, fans of the old boxy look are afraid that the Wrangler will be getting a similar visual redesign.  If this grille look is any indication, then there is nothing to worry about.

This possible grille shows that the iconic seven slot is going nowhere to no surprise.  What some publications have gathered is that there is no room for the turn-signals, indicating those may have moved to the fenders.  Combined with possible other leaked images of a disguised Jeep thought to be the 2018 Jeep Wrangler and it adds up to a slight variation on the boxed look Wrangler fans love.

For now, all that we can do is speculate on whether the images are even real.  We can’t wait to see what the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will look like and photos like this will only make the wait longer and harder.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Getting 8-Speed Auto Transmission

14-2014-wrangler-freedom-top_med

It might be a long ways away, but Jeep is already planning on what will be in their next generation of Jeep Wrangler.  Automotive News got their hands on a filing the automaker filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission to show that the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will be getting Chrysler’s eight-speed transmission.

2018 is currently when the planned redesign is slated for the Wrangler.  The eight-speed transmission that will be used is already in Chrysler vehicles such as the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2014 Dodge Durango.   The transmission provides much better fuel economy over the previous year.

According to the filing, “We plan to use this transmission in all of our rear-wheel-drive vehicles, except for heavy-duty versions of the Ram pick-up truck and the SRT Viper.”

Not much else is known about what to expect from the redesign of the Wrangler.  At least we know thanks to Chrysler filings that it will be looking to improve fuel economy with a better automatic transmission.
