The new 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has been spotted in a leak. This is the first time that the upcoming update to the popular off-road vehicle made an appearance on the internet and fans are pleasantly surprised. According to the images, there are a few differences in design.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler photos come from the JLWranglerForums, where member FS90 posted two black and white photos of the car. The posting was later confirmed by an admin of the site. At first glance, it looks exactly like the current model, but there are small details that are different upon close inspection.
As outlined by an admin of the forum, the Jeep Wrangler update will have removable roof and doors. The leaked images also reveal that there are some changes made to the fog lights and side mirrors location, the hood angle, grille design, headlights, trunk space size, and more.

A few details have also been added. The 2018 model will now have new door handles, turn signals on side mirrors, a belt line and full-length rain gutter. Overall, the solid frame has impressed fans of the compact SUV.
The images may have also revealed some key information about the upcoming SUV. The vent behind the front fenders is not just for show - it improves the aerodynamics of the car, which means that Jeep is not forsaking speed in spite of bulkiness. The door handles also hint to a keyless entry system.
There is only one thing missing: the spare tire, which the Wrangler is rarely seen without. Even so, there is a provision for it in the rear bumper, so fans need not worry about it being left out.
Under the hood, there should be a turbocharged inline-four and a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6. According to MotorTrend, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is expected to be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show this November.
