Explore the Amazing Capabilities of the New Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JL!

It didn't take long for the all-new Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited JL generation to become a hit at our Fort Wayne location. Whether you're itching to buy your first Wrangler, or are ready to trade-in your current one, we're here to tell you what changes designers and engineers made from the previous JK generation.


What's New on the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited JL?

Exterior: one of the bigger exterior giveaways is the updated grille. The JL's grille has a slight kink, compared to the relatively flat JK grille. This isn't just an aesthetic change; it makes the model more efficient. You'll also notice vents behind the front fenders that reduce road noise and keep the engine cool.

Some of our favorite exterior updates lie in the new methods for taking off the top. With the hardtop version you can remove panels, while still maintaining a bit of overhead and side protection.  There's also a convertible soft top and a high-end power top. These options are faster and easier than the previous generation's, so it won't take long to feel the wind in your face as your cruise around Auburn.


Engines & Performance: we love the expanded engine lineup. There is even a rumored plug-in electric version for 2020. It might not be a fit for off-roaders, but for those who commute between New Haven and Huntington it'll be an exciting, alternative option.

  • 3.6L V6 with 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft torque (carried over from the last generation, but more efficient)
  • 2.0L turbocharged engine with 270 horsepower & 295 lb-ft torque (all-new!)
  • 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 with 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft torque (expected to arrive in 2019. Specs haven't been 100% confirmed, but these rumored numbers are pretty solid)

The 6-speed manual transmission was also upgraded, and there is an improved 77.2:1 crawl ratio.


Interior: the Wrangler's cabin updates are very apparent. The interior still has a rugged appeal (you can still hose down the floor!), but there is an upgraded infotainment system, new steering wheel, and more gadgets and technology to enjoy as you drive around Columbia City.
