The all-new JL generation of the iconic Jeep Wrangler has taken its sweet time before becoming public – but we might have a set date for the end of the shenanigans.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler first started as a huge scandal for its traditional production location – but all things have been resolved for some time now – so we’re still wondering why is it taking FCA so much time before delivering a brand new Wrangler for fans to love. Anyways, if the latest rumor on the subject is correct, we only have to wait a few more months – because the revelation could arrive this fall during the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. According to a local Toledo news outlet, FCA chief Sergio Marchionne said he “can’t cover them up with masking tape. The car [JL Wrangler] is too distinctive. We may show it in Los Angeles in November and then launch it officially here in January .”
According to other reports, production is scheduled for November this year as well, but anyways just by looking at FCA’s track record we might take the LA Auto Show debut with a pinch of salt – and also remember there are rumors the JK Wrangler will stay in production until at least March 2018. The new generation should also be granted a new 2.0-liter turbo-four nicknamed Hurricane – and possibly the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 as well.
