The American automaker surprised everyone by releasing three photos of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler on Halloween, giving us an idea of what to expect when it bows at the 2017 L.A. Auto Show. Although we won’t get all the details until then, we now know the Wrangler Unlimited with a V6 engine and a six-speed manual transmission will return 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway for a 19-mpg combined rating.
There’s also an optional eight-speed automatic transmission that increases fuel economy to 18-mpg city, 23-mpg highway, and 20-mpg combined. The current JK Wrangler Unlimited is rated at 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway with a 18-mpg combined rating with the manual, while the five-speed automatic model returns 16 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway for an 18-mpg combined rating.
We’ll have to continue waiting to see the figures for the two-door model as well as the turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Expect more information on the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler to leak in the coming weeks leading up to the 2017 L.A. Auto Show.
