Jeep Wrangler JL user guide and owner's manual leaks

Jeep Wrangler JL user guide and owner's manual leaks”

The leaked brochure is brought to us by JL Wrangler Forums, the site that has kept us up to date on all the early details about the new Wrangler.

Predictably, Jeep has chosen to keep the car's throwback styling, with subtle tweaks to the headlights, grille and indicator cluster refreshing the appearance of the 2018 model year vehicle.

With all the leaked information it's only a matter of weeks until the 2018 Jeep Wrangler (JL) is finally unveiled.

Among them are a long-rumored power sliding roof option that isn't removable, but is combined with rear quarter windows that can be taken out to provide an open-air experience.

By perusing through the guide, we learn that the Wrangler will offer a removable soft top and a three-piece Freedom hard top with removable panels.

Under the bonnet, there's either a 2.0-litre four-cylinder or 3.6-litre V6 engine; the current car's 2.8-litre powerplant has been dropped, at least from the US-specification auto. In the engine compartment diagram, we see a coolant reservoir for a "motor generator unit", which confirms the available mild hybrid system. The tow ratings for the 3.6L V6 aren't listed.

In terms of safety features, the Wrangler will receive blind spot monitoring and rear cross path detection technology. The manual shows off the Uconnect infotainment screen in 7-inch or 8.4-inch form. Towing capacity for the two-door models is 2,000 pounds, while the four-door versions are capable of 3,500 pounds. Models with a five-mode transfer case include both a four-wheel drive auto high range and a four-wheel drive part time high range. The highly anticipated off-roader will make its debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show in late November, so stay tuned for our full report on the SUVs long-awaited arrival.

The photo that was leaked with the owners manual shows what appears to be a JL Wrangler Rubicon on the Rubicon trail.
