The owner’s manual for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL has leaked online, revealing just about everything you could ever want to know about the new SUV. 

The owner’s manual includes exterior and interior images of the latest generation of the Wrangler along with information on the powertrain, interior features, roof configurations and much more. It confirms that both a 2.0-liter turbo four and 3.6-liter V6 engine will be offered in the Wrangler (power figures still aren’t available) along with both a six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions. Also of note is the removable roof, which is also available as a power-folding soft top, the removable doors and the folding windshield.

The Wrangler JL will get Fiat Chrysler’s fourth-generation UConnect C display system, available with 7-inch or 8.4-inch displays. Entry-level models will feature UConnect 3 with a 5-inch display. Certain models will feature ‘off-road pages’ within the UConnect system, which shows the pitch and roll of the vehicle, suspension articulation, and steering angle through a digital animation.  The instrument cluster will feature a 3.5-inch display as standard, but a 7-inch digital instrument display will be available on certain models. The cabin will also feature a start-stop button, steering wheel-mounted audio and display controls and an available 4G wi-fi hotspot.
