Spy photographers have grabbed a set of clean photos showing the interior of the upcoming 2018 Jeep Wrangler.

A full redesign has arrived for the center stack, which incorporates Chrysler’s updated UConnect infotainment system. All the standard fare, including the HVAC controls and center-mounted window switches, are all still present, but there are some new additions to the dash worth mentioning.

First is a set of four buttons marked “auxiliary,” which are probably up-fitter switches which can be used to run numerous aftermarket upgrades. Some added comfort is coming to the Wrangler as well in the form of a heated steering wheel and dual-zone climate control.

A “sway bar” button can also be seen, which will be used to operate the disconnecting sway bar system.

And to top it off, a stick shift is seen in this prototype, so there is a good chance that consumers will still be able to bring home a manual transmission. Powertrain options are expected to include a 3.6-liter V6, a 3.0-liter diesel and a small turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

The new 2018 Jeep Wrangler should debut sometime before the end of 2017.

    Nope... Rock and Rough trail crawling is best handled with solid axles. The 4x4 Silverado I had from 97 - 2002 could never handle the trails I take with my JK

    My question is, when All those fancy electronics get wet on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler without removing the top of my Jeep are they going to fix it under the warranty or like my dealer told me once "it's a Jeep". I told him to put it in writing. (Google search water issues with Jeep Wranglers.) If I wanted a Durango I would had bought one, BUY a 2017 Jeep Wrangler before they kill it. Don't understand, but they can address so many other issues with the Jeep Wrangler.
