The All-New 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Is So Good, It’ll Take On Its (Past) Self!

Compare the All-New 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL to the 2017 Wrangler

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL is all-new for the 2018-model year, but some things certainly haven’t changed—that signature boxy shape is still visible from a mile away, and for both the two-door and the four-door Jeep Wrangler models, the roof and doors still come off, and yes, the windshield still lowers, too. One small change though—the crossbar holding your rearview mirror and visors stays in place. Check out more differences between the 2017 and 2018 Jeep Wranglers below!



2018 Jeep Wrangler JL vs. 2017 Jeep Wrangler | Oh, What a Difference a Model Year Makes!

  • Size: The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL is longer than the model it replaces, measuring 166.8 inches long, versus 164 inches for the 2017 Wrangler. Additionally, the wheelbase extends by 1.4 inches, giving the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL a more fearsome, imposing stance.
  • Angles (using base model specs): The redesigned 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL offers improved approach, breakover, and departure angles, so if you’re into off-roading, pay special attention here; the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL offers a 41.1-degree approach angle, a 25-degree breakover angle, and 35.9-degree departure angle, all of which are around two-degrees better than the outgoing 2017 model. As an added bonus, ground clearance is better in the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, going from 8.3-inches in the 2018 Jeep Wrangler base model to 9.7-inches in the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL (base model).
  • Engine & Powertrain: While it uses the same 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 featured in the 2017 model, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL lineup gains a newly available 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. If you’re looking to go off-road, you’ll know those numbers are rather compelling—just look at that torque!
