The 2018 Jeep Wrangler is an excellent SUV — and while it looks fairly similar to the outgoing model, serious shoppers will notice the big differences. There is, for instance, a new turbocharged 4-cylinder powertrain — which will improve fuel economy — along with a revised interior that’s dramatically more comfortable than the outgoing model’s cabin. Then there’s the top — or, should we say, tops, as there are many different options, all of which are easier to remove and install than the tops in prior models. Autotrader’s data specialist Dwight Cunningham summed up the Wrangler in one sentence, noting that it “provides everything you know and love, plus a modernized and well-appointed interior” — and it does so with a fairly small price jump, starting at a reasonably affordable $28,500 with shipping. It’s an American icon, and changes for the 2018 model year will ensure it stays that way.
