It's a Jeep! Or - a Fiat version of a Jeep
J. Harp, 5/16/2018
So, let me say this - the new JL Wrangler has improved a lot over the outgoing (but still offered for sale, for some reason) JK Wrangler. My biggest complaint is the build quality. Our Wrangler Unlimited Sahara showed up with one Freedom top panel a different color. No biggie, probably a Friday job car. But the battle to get it fixed with the local Jeep dealer in Medford OR was epic. Initially the dealer was confused as to why we would want all the top panels to match... Then when tasked with fixing it, they said "drop it off and we will send it to the body shop to get it painted" So we'd get a loaner for "3-4 weeks" Um, no... After several calls to FCA corporate, the dealer agreed to get a new panel and have it painted, and swap it out. After owning the Wrangler for a few weeks, we noticed little things wrong. Like the sunvisor was split open with the plastic guts sticking out. Not what you'd expect from a $50k car. The new 8-speed transmission flat out sucks. It is shifting constantly, even on flat ground. When towing it really never stops shifting. After calling the dealer service department, their response is pretty much "if it moves, and no warning lights are on, there's nothing we can do about it" - - Be warned, FCA will do "over the air" updates on the car. Gone are the days of the dealer forcing software updates on the vehicle when you drop it off for an oil change. After leaving the dealer, the (very expensive) 8.4" Uconnect screen had "Off Road" pages to show fun things like approach angle, oil temp, etc... The next day after getting the Wrangler home, POOF! They were gone, like they were never even there. FCA says it will be a feature on the 2019 Wrangler... LOL ; so how did they appear on a 2018 Wrangler then disappear? I will always wonder what Jeep might have evolved into had Daimler Mercedes retained ownership (a G-class equivalent !?) rather than Fiat taking over and doing what Fiat does best... Make no mistake, the Wrangler JL Unlimited is a fun car, and it is still a Jeep. And there are so many improvements over the JK. It just feels you should get something that "feels" more quality for $50 grand, rather than something that feels slapped together with a lousy transmission and the same boring old Pentastar V6 that FCA has put in just about every vehicle built for the last 10 years (who needs direct injection or turbochargers when a gas guzzler V6 still sells?)
3 months to get a part 2018 Jeep
Nicole, 3/1/2018
I have searched for over a year for the perfect Jeep. I finally found a 2018 Wrangler Sahara. I had it for two days and filled up The gas tank for the first time. I quickly found out it had a gas leak so it was towed back to the dealership. Jeep does not have the part available. I have been told it is on backorder until the end of May 2018. I purchased the vehicle February 19th, 2018 and it was towed two days later. I am getting the run around that it is a new vehicle so not all parts are on hand. No one will answer questions. I just keep being told that they are trying to fast track it. Therefore, be careful when you purchase. Jeeps have a good name but this makes me exceptionally worried, angry, and frustrated. I would love to leave a better review but I have to have the vehicle to be able to review it. Customer service doesn’t even apologize. I am just basically being told to deal with it.
Buy 2 so you don't have to walk
Daniel Lewis, 7/2/2018
Recently purchased a new 2018 Willy's Jeep. With 800 miles it has failed to restart on 5 occasions the most recent after driving only two miles to a gas station. Needed to call a tow truck. Told there is a problem with the transmission valve body electrical connection. Once vehicle is warm it will not turnover thinking the transmission is not in park or neutral. Let it sit for several hours and starts fine. Dealer says part not available as it is being engineered. No ETA on this part or solution. My daughter's first new car and very disappointed.

Jeep Wrangler vs. the competition

2018 Jeep Wrangler

2018 Jeep Renegade

2018 Jeep Renegade

Jeep Wrangler vs. Jeep Renegade

Think of the Renegade as the Wrangler's much younger sibling and you'll get the idea of the differences. The considerably less expensive Renegade uses plenty of traditional Jeep styling cues. And when ordered in Trailhawk trim, it can be a reasonably capable off-roader. But it falls well short of the Wrangler's power and outright capability.

Jeep Wrangler vs. Toyota 4Runner

The 4Runner is an icon in its own right. When equipped in the TRD Pro version, it can follow a Wrangler nearly everywhere off-road. The Toyota also benefits from being a traditional SUV, so it's quieter and offers better security than the Wrangler. You can also get a third-row seat. The Wrangler, though, is still ultimately superior off-road and benefits from its fresher design.

Compare Jeep Wrangler & Toyota 4Runner features

Jeep Wrangler vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Grand Cherokee might be the toughest competition the Wrangler has. It offers useful off-road prowess, stylish looks, and plenty of luxury and technology. And like the 4Runner, it's a more traditional SUV. The Grand Cherokee can also tow more than a Wrangler thanks to a number of engine options. It's larger and heavier, though, and doesn't have the same ultimate level of off-road performance as the Wrangler.

More about the 2018 Jeep Wrangler

Previous iterations of the Jeep Wrangler have required quite a bit of compromise. They've valued off-road capability over comfort and sacrificed quite a bit of city drivability in the process. That's definitely not the case with the new, redesigned 2018 Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler still comes in two- and four-door configurations, available in a convertible or a hardtop setup. It is still one of the most off-road-capable SUVs for sale today, and it still has a lot of charm. And what's more, it has made massive leaps forward in tech capability, interior quality and overall refinement. More than just a personality with a friendly face, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler is now a legitimately user-friendly rig with a style that's all its own.

The Wrangler retains the same 3.6-liter V6 engine that's been available for nearly a decade, but this time it gets the available option of an eight-speed automatic rather than the dated five-speed automatic.

Jeep has announced three future powertrains for the Wrangler, with the first being a turbocharged four-cylinder available in late 2018. It provides additional torque, a higher payload rating, and plenty of thrust to get things going. Even with the standard V6, EPA fuel economy ratings have gone up from 18 mpg combined (16 city/21 highway) with the old Wrangler to 20 mpg combined (18 city/23 highway) with the new model. It's a modest increase, sure, but a welcome one.

While the Wrangler's looks have changed a bit, you still get a lot of familiar exterior styling cues such as the boxy shape, the seven-slot grille and the beefy tires. Eagle-eyed shoppers and Jeep enthusiasts will quickly notice that the newest Wrangler is larger than before, but that means more space on the inside. The increase in size doesn't mean a decrease in capability either since tire sizes, approach and departure angles, and an increase in ground clearance have been adjusted to compensate. The longer wheelbase also helps with ride comfort and handling, which were previously two outstandingly weak links in the Wrangler's chain.

Both the Wrangler and the Wrangler Unlimited are available in three main trim levels. The basic implement is the Sport, which is capable but simple. The Sahara adds appearance and convenience features, while the top-of-the-line Rubicon attempts to spoil the occupants with upgrades and even more capable off-road performance, plus distinctive styling that makes the Wrangler look like an American G-Wagen. Let Edmunds help you find the perfect 2018 Jeep Wrangler with our objective evaluations, rich data and unparalleled shopping tools.
