Rather unexpectedly, Jeep has decided to release the first photos of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler amid the 2017 SEMA Show.

The three images released show the all-new Wrangler in both two-door and four-door Unlimited versions. Oddly, they weren’t accompanied by much information about the 4×4. Here’s the press release in its entirety:

“The most capable SUV ever delivers even more legendary Jeep® 4×4 capability, a modern design that stays true to the original, advanced fuel-efficient powertrains, more open-air options, and is loaded with more safety features and advanced technology than ever before. The all-new Wrangler’s unique design includes an instantly recognizable keystone-shaped grille, iconic round headlamps and square tail lamps, improved aerodynamics, a convenient fold-down windshield for off-road purists, even more open-air freedom, and dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations. Additional images and complete vehicle information will be available November 29 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.”

After a number of leaks, the Wrangler’s design doesn’t come as much of a surprise. As far as the powertrain goes, we’re expecting a 3.6-liter V6, along with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, both of which will be offered with a six-speed manual and an eight-speed automatic transmission. A leaked order guide indicated the hardtop will be optional, and both Sahara and Rubicon trims will be offered from launch. Previous leaks also showed the Wrangler will get a serious technology update inside in the way of the latest versions of FCA’s UConnect system.

Stay tuned for more info the 2018 Jeep Wrangler as it becomes available.

    Still to awkward to climb on the back with those tiny doors.

    I simply do not understand this company. Sure, you can sell an idea for a long time if the product is good, but by all accounts Jeeps aren't very good, so how is it the company is still alive?
