2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon JL Calgary
The New Year brings new models, we're going to first showcase our brand new 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon (JL). They have really stepped up and brought the Wrangler to a whole new level!
From exterior styling to interior technology, this is certainly not a Jeep Wrangler you're used to. Its signature 7-Slot Grille is now slanted at the top, pairing that with the updated rounded LED headlights with a horizontal projector between the high-beams, it gives the Wrangler a much more aggressive look.
Interior wise it is brand new, with painted bezels and a whole new dash. You can also expect to see the most advanced display ever seen in a Wrangler. The 8.4 inch display Uconnect system is heavily updated this year featuring Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, as well as our brand new Sirius Guardian which has features such as SOS and Assist to get help when you need it.
The new Sirius Guardian will also allow you to do things like remote start your vehicle, and unlock/lock your doors right from an App on your cellular device, it has never been more convenient. The Wrangler will also feature an all-new 7 inch in cluster dash display, and 4 USB ports on the inside.
With available 33-inch All-Terrain tires on the Rubicon, the Rock-Trac 4x4 system, and Dana 44 Front and Rear axles, there is absolutely nothing that is going to be able to stand in the way of you and your All-new 2018 Wrangler. Also, available to this year is a 2.0L Turbo Charged 4-cylinder engine, as well as the classic Pentastar V6. This all-new engine outputs 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque at lower RPM (5,250/3,000) than the V6. So, the 4-cylinder Turbo will have very similar output as the V6 but it will be able to deliver it quicker.
This new engine also boasts an all new eTorque system. This includes electric power assist, stop/start functionality and regenerative braking and can totally turn off the engine and fuel flow during stops or when coasting. FCA says eTorque helps with launches and fuel economy. It teams with an eight-speed automatic transmission, which will be a first in our Wrangler line-up.
There is also one more feature that Jeep enthusiasts will absolutely love. There is an available Sky One-Touch power top that retracts the canvas roof. Making taking it off and putting it up so much easier than previous Wranglers where you needed 2 people and some elbow grease to get it done right!
