Jeep Wrangler 2018

 

The Jeep Wrangler 2018 is one of the last 4x4s designed to rule off-road, with few concessions to modern design or technology. While the 2018 model still looks the part, underneath things get far more modern, with powerful and more efficient 2.0-litre petrol and 3.0-litre diesel engines and a rumoured hybrid version further down the line. Updated rough-and-tumble styling features outside, with a range of bodystyles, while the interior gets uprated infotainment and a stylish yet functional dashboard.

The list of what we already know about the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler is a long one, as months of anticipation—and leaked information—have given us tidbits about its engines, interior and exterior features, and four-wheel-drive systems. Now Jeep has finally released a big piece of the puzzle: actual, real, official photos of the production JL Wrangler. All that’s left now is official word on the Wrangler’s specifications, which should come out within the next few weeks as the automaker gets ready to start production sometime in November.

Admittedly, the Wrangler’s looks don’t come as much of a surprise. It looks like a Jeep, as we had already gleaned from the numerous spy photos of two- and four-door models earlier this year. Beyond the familiar shapes of its exterior, bigger changes are in store for the Wrangler’s cabin, which gets a much-needed technology update including the latest versions of Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system.

The 2018 Jeep Renegade mounts a spirited defense of its brand bona fides, but delivers a less convincing impression of a great economy car.

The 2018 Jeep Renegade is a compact crossover that stretches what we thought we knew about Jeep.

The small trucklet is the smallest Jeep sold since the last world war, with a turbo-4 engine, touchscreen, and funky details. It still scrambles up hills and trails, but we’re not fans of its rear-seat space or its thrummy, underperforming engines. We like it enough in any of its trim levels—Sport, Latitude, Limited, or Trailhawk—to give a 5.5 out of 10. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

With its slab-sided, upright style, the Renegade weaves Jeep heritage into every body panel. The seven-slot grille and round headlights look more Jeep than does anything on the next-class-bigger Cherokee, and the details bring the look home. The “X” shape in the taillights? It’s a throwback to stampings on WWII-era fuel cans. Inside, the Renegade toughens up the usual economy-car shapes, puts big round knobs where they’re useful, and brightens things up with lovely textures and color choices.

Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde

The Giulia proved Alfa can seriously challenge market-leaders such as the BMW 3 Series, and the brand is now looking to repeat the trick with a rival for the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class. Alfa has stayed tight-lipped about the unnamed saloon, but our exclusive image shows how we think it will look. We expect it to share the Giulia’s style, using the same platform and engine range
