2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK at Kim's Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

What has a removable roof & doors, a fold-down windshield, body-on-frame design, tow hooks, and an iconic silhouette that shouts off-roading? The four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK in its tenth year for 2018, that's what-- and the mountains themselves may be shuddering. A popular and welcomed 2018 edition has entered the melee and rocks a few new points of interest on a proven platform. A new way to know it's the 2018 JK is to notice a Wrangler JK decal on the driver's-side fender, or to realize that you are looking at either the new Golden Eagle edition or the new incarnation of the Altitude edition, which are both germane to the JK. The Golden Eagle edition can have a tan soft-top and thematic center/side hood decals, while the Altitude can has a power bulge hood! Also of note, the Freedom Edition is a special edition that has a military-influenced exterior/interior including pieces such as an Oscar Mike logo embroidered on the seat backs in silver stitching and body-color fender flares!

The 2018 JK has the same powertrain as in previous years?

Wrangler JK has all the tested power of its well-liked 3.6-liter V-6 with 285-hp with 260 lb.-ft. of torque. It is crafted to generate a broad torque band (with a focus on low-end torque), which is excellent in certain off-roading or towing scenarios. An 'NSG 370' six-speed manual transmission with overdrive can be partnered up with the engine, with a 'W5A580' five-speed automatic transmission also making the cut for that setup in 2018. It ships standard with a power-assisted, anti-lock braking system working within an open steel body-- it's designed to make the most of its power!

What are some design points that I should know about?

The 2018 JK comes in Sport, Sport S, Sahara, Rubicon models-- all with the traditional gear that Wrangler fans have enjoyed, such as round headlamps, trapezoid wheel flares, and a 7-slot grille. When you get the Unlimited version (as opposed to the 2-door Wrangler) it extends the wheelbase over 20 inches, puts on 1.6 inches of back legroom, and also adds an impressive 19 cubic feet of cargo volume. The 2018 JK also rocks inside with standard 8-speaker audio system or a choice for 9 Alpine speakers, a subwoofer and a 552-watt amplifier that is a part of the Premium Alpine Audio Package. The outside of the vehicle can come in a bunch of exciting colors, such as Firecracker Red, Xtreme Purple, Baja Yellow, and several others. Inside you will find one of several capable systems aiding you in information and entertainment, mainly in the form of Uconnect with or without Navigation, a SiriusXM Satellite Radio as an option, a standard cd player, Bluetooth, and auxiliary ports. Plus, a durable and washable interior with drain plugs is standard on all models. There are folding rear seats that gain excellent storage space, only increased by a storage bin underneath the back cargo area.

Can you explain in more detail why it excels off-road?

Dual 4x4 systems are proffered on the Wrangler JK, with the standard one being the Command-Trac part-time system (on Sport, Sport S, and Sahara models), with a 2.72:1 low range for crawling slowly over hilly terrain. The other 4x4 option is the Rock-Trac part-time system with an even shorter 4.0:1 low range found on the Rubicon. That system involves locking front and rear differentials, plus, both front and rear anti-roll bars that allow manual disconnection at the push of a button. Also, Wrangler JK throws in a towing maximum up to 3,500 pounds like it's no big deal. All this on top of incredible off-roading features is what sets this vehicle apart from the domesticated pack, and thrusts it squarely into the wild outside permanently. Features that are possible on certain models (and standard on others) include: Dana 44 front & rear axles, an optional Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential, augmented off-road rock rails, 32-inch BF Goodrich KM off-road tires, heavy-duty cast differential covers, electric front & rear locking differentials, and a disconnecting front sway bar! All this coupled with at least a 38.5 approach angle (42.2 on Rubicon model) and a ground clearance of up to 10 inches should certainly weigh in here as important facts as well.
