2018 Wrangler JK Review
Despite its roots as an all-purpose military vehicle, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK continually improves on its decades of utility and performance to become a versatile SUV for a variety of uses.
Drivers in Penn Yan, Geneva, Watkins Glen and Hammondsport can find out more about the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK with our vehicle review.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK comes with a 3.6-liter V-6 that pumps out 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, most of which is low-end for the serious off-roaders. This engine can deliver the strong acceleration and passing power needed for daily driving as well, however. It pairs to a five-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission.
With the low-range power, tall gear ranges and ground clearance, the Wrangler JK is unmatched off-road. The advanced four-wheel-drive system ensures that there’s no limit to what terrain the Wrangler JK can tackle, while the electric disconnect for the sway bar gives it the articulation needed for changing terrain.
There’s been little need for change for the Jeep Wrangler over the years, and the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK is no different. It still retains its iconic style, flat panels, boxy shape and signature seven-slot grille, with additional elements thrown in for functionality. Subtle details, like the Willy silhouette in the wheel pockets and windshield edge and the Jeep icons in the lighting are fun new additions.
Inside, the Wrangler JK received most of its modern updates. Soft-touch surfaces, interior lighting, contoured paneling and plush fabrics replace the old design, which enhances the interior’s comfort and look. The emphasis is still on practicality, however, with a layout that’s designed for ease-of-use.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK includes many new technology and performance features to its new model. Such modern entertainment and convenience features like satellite radio, premium audio and keyless entry are all available, as well as heated seating and power accessories. There’s also an available 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with streaming music capability and navigation, which is incredibly responsive and intuitive.
For off-roading, the Wrangler JK can be equipped with disconnecting front sway bars, an improved rear axle ratio, a beefier front axle and the Rock-Trac four-wheel-drive system with low-range gear options for improved performance in rugged environments. Larger tires, rock rails and independent locking front and rear differentials are also available.
There are also plenty of special editions, standalone options, options packages and customization features that allow you to create the Wrangler JK you want, without sacrificing any options you really need.
