Check out that prestige gap!
The wait is finally over, with our spy photographers having encountered a 2018 Wrangler test mule in the Southwestern desert. Mad Max visual setup aside, the test vehicle reveals an important aspect about the iconic model, namely that it will grow in length.
As you can see in the gallery below, the area between the hood and the cowl has gained about one inch, with the front fenders also being adapted to support the increase. Expect this extra space to be invested into the next Wrangler’s wheelbase.
The Wrangler will keep its short front and rear overhangs in order to maintain its brilliant approach and departure angles. And since the vehicle must also deliver in terms of the break-over angle, the wheelbase increase has to be moderate.
Nevertheless, this will allow the Wrangler to offer superior interior space, mixing a modern cabin with an overall setup that will help the vehicle stay true to its roots, both in terms of styling and rugged terrain capacities.
