2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon: The All-New Classic

CARS.COM — The Jeep Wrangler — official vehicle of affordable off-roading and guys whose shirts never seem to have sleeves — is all-new for the 2018 model year as the JK generation is phased out to make way for the JL. Pictured above is the top-of-the-line Rubicon model — the most capable straight-from-the-factory Wrangler.

Rubicon models are available as two-door or Unlimited four-door models, with either a six-speed manual or an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission. The standard Dana axles are replaced by heavy-duty Dana 44 axles with electronic locking front and rear differentials.

Exterior design cues for Rubicon models include standard 33-inch tires, and unique vented hood, wheels and graphics. Tubular steel rock rails are included, as well, to prevent frame damage off-road.

Body-colored hardtops and fender flares are available on Rubicon models, giving the rock-crawler a more premium appearance.

The doors are still removable and the windshield still folds flat, and the standard hard and available soft-tops are removable, as well. A third top, the Sky One-Touch power top, has a panoramic rollback top and removable side panels for those who still want some of the al fresco feel.

We’ll get our first chance to drive the all-new Wrangler soon, so stay tuned for our driving impressions.
