Jeep’s engineers wisely chose not to mess too much with a good thing:

  • Are the doors still removable? Yes
  • Are the roofs still removable? Yes. Well, two out of three; the third still offers significant fresh-air access.
  • Does it still have a manual transmission available? Yes.
  • Can it still go off-road? Hell, yes.

One change to make this iconic model more accessible to the less off-road-inclined is the first-ever full-time all-wheel-drive system on a Wrangler. This feature, only available on the Sahara trim level (pictured above), is a “set-it-and-forget-it” system that constantly delivers power to all four wheels.

Take a look at the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sahara above, and stay tuned for driving impressions once we get behind the wheel next month.
