Whether you find yourself on a paved highway, or a bumpy, off-road trail, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler is up to the challenge. A lot of people around Rapid City, Belle Fourche, and Sioux Falls talk about the versatility or power of this model, but if you're looking to purchase the 2018 Wrangler, components like fuel economy also come into play.

Liberty Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT has created this 2018 Jeep Wrangler review so you know everything about this model before getting behind the wheel.

Engine Specs & Performance

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler has a powerful engine complemented by some impressive off-road performance features.

First, a 3.6L, V6 engine boasts 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Also, an available 8-speed transmission only increases handling capability.

The next option is a 2.0-liter turbocharged, I-4 engine boasting 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. This engine is all-new, and features an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Lastly, a 3.0-liter, EcoDiesel V6 engine produces 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. This engine also has an automatic 8-speed transmission.

To help increase fuel efficiency, an engine stop-start feature comes standard. This will shut off your engine automatically if you stop at a streetlight, helping to reduce fuel consumption, before starting again when you accelerate.

To help conquer mountain sides, an available Rock-Trac® 4x4 system features heavy duty, next-generation front and rear axles, making it easier to handle any obstacle. Even if you find yourself in high water, a high air intake feature, along with additional electrical and body sealing capabilities, means you can cut through rivers up to 30 inches deep.

Some of the other helpful off-road features include skid plates, front and rear tow hooks, available 33 inch tires, and 3,500 lbs of towing capacity.

Interior & Exterior Styling

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler has a bold, rugged look that is also highly practical.

First, available LED headlamps and fog lamps create a crisp, white lighting. Available LED tail lamps are also an option. Also, new lightweight, high-strength doors are easier to remove than ever, and a Sky One-Touch powertop will fully retract the canvas roof at the push of a button.

If you're looking for customization, an available body-color hardtop option offers a unique appearance. Also, a black three-piece hardtop allows for even more open-air driving options. This pairs well with the body-colored sport bars that are welded to the frame and come equipped with grab handles.

Technology & Convenience Capabilities

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler does a good job of keeping you connected for a more enjoyable, convenient ride.

For example, the fourth generation Uconnect® System includes easy-to-use features, enhanced processing power, faster startup times, and touchscreens that display high-resolution graphics. You can also utilize Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Each system makes it easy to integrate your smartphone with your Wrangler, giving you access to everything from music to navigation.

While these features come in handy, another available option will help improve your entertainment system. Alpine® Premium 9-Speakers with all-weather subwoofers add a little extra oomph to your sound system. This subwoofer is located on the right side of the rear cargo area to create more storage space.

New Lift-Assist handles under each door armrest makes it easier than ever to remove the doors. And, if you happen to be trekking in some cold conditions, available heated front seats and steering wheel can keep you warm.

Lastly, a new instrument cluster features a 3.5 inch or 7 inch thin-film transistor LED display. This display allows you to configure information in over 100 different ways, including tire pressure or a digital speed readout.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Review Conclusion

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler has the outstanding power and capabilities you can expect from the iconic Jeep brand. However, the added technology and superior styling make this car a terrific option for anyone around Rapid City, Belle Fourche, and Sioux Falls.
