There are already plenty of photos of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL floating around the web, but now a video has surfaced of Fiat Chrysler testing the next-generation SUV.
The video actually shows two different four-door Wrangler Unlimited prototypes undergoing tests. The footage doesn’t reveal anything we don’t already know about the vehicle, but in a few of the shots its new LED headlamps and fender-mounted LED running lights can be clearly seen. Toward the end of the video, a prototype for the four-door Wrangler JT pickup truck is also pictured parked in an FCA lot.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL, which will likely make a debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show in November, will introduce major changes to the storied Wrangler nameplate. The vehicle will retain its solid axles and removable doors, but will feature a more refined and upscale cabin and should be lighter thanks to an aluminum hood and doors. A number of engine options should also be on the table, with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine said to be joined by FCA’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine. Both six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions will likely be on offer as well.
More information on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL should become available as its debut this fall approaches, but for now, you can see it testing in the video above.
