Glendale Heights IL - 2018 Jeep Wrangler Overview

Exterior

There’s no mistaking the muscular seven-slot grille, but you might still know the Wrangler is a Jeep even without the iconic front end. Off-roading governs the exterior features. That’s why the Jeep is built so high with class-leading ground clearance. This advantage is furthered by mounting the Jeep’s bumpers up high and tight. Limited overhangs mean that less can snag on pesky bushes. Extra water-proofing lets it ford up to two feet of water. Skid plates provide necessary protections for vital engine equipment. You can get a fold-down windshield and removable doors with the removable soft-top. There’s also a color-coordinated hardtop roof with removable sides. Spicing up the look, JK Golden Eagle editions wear a premium tan soft top. Bronze highlights impart a glossy look to the fender flairs, and they coordinate with the bronze tow hooks on the steel bumpers. Heavy duty rock rails add to its off-road readiness. If you choose the JK Freedom Edition, Jeep uses a low-gloss granite crystal paint with decals and graphics on the hood, fenders and rear. JK Altitude editions have black accents and a power bulge hood. Tan soft tops are on the Rubicon and Freedom menus, tan half-doors are on the Golden Eagle menu.

Interior

When the Jeep Wrangler earned the Overall Quality Award from a leading industry analyst, its success was due to its overall package. Strategic Vision recognized it as best in class for its value and style as well as its athletic nature. As you may know, there are two Wranglers. The two-door classic serves many singles and couples who want to live an outdoor lifestyle. The four-door Wrangler Unlimited is geared toward families who want to experience life more fully. Both are suitable for your daily commute and long trips. Three trim editions in multiple styles let you go from the basics to a customized look. It’s as if the factory has customized the ride for you, and that means every element is covered by the Jeep’s generous warranty. Unique color choices set some Wranglers apart. There’s an impressive dark olive, hinting at the Wrangler’s military past. A Jeep saddle brown is in keeping with the Wrangler’s penchant for the countryside. On the JK Golden Eagle special edition, black seats wear a distinctive logo. A light brown stitch provides an accent on the armrests, console, and steering wheel. Distinctive diesel gray accents spruce up the black leather upholstery in the JK Altitude model. Trim elements shine brightly with a Liquid Titanium look. An Oscar Mike logo accents the seats in the JK Freedom models.
