Vehicle Profile: 2018 Jeep® Wrangler JK
The off-road king still reigns

Going off the beaten path has never been as easy as with the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler JK.

Iconic, rugged style

The 2018 Jeep® Wrangler JK preserves the iconic style that has made it so popular throughout the decades, including the removable doors and top that let you truly enjoy the open air, and the seven slot grille that everyone recognizes as classic 2018 Jeep® wherever you travel. This time around, that iconic grille is flanked by available LED headlamps for better nighttime visibility and an even more distinctive look. The Wrangler JK’s rugged style and practical design applies to both the interior and exterior. The folding rear seats, storage nets and lockable easy access storage bin in the center console make it easy to stow away all your gear, while the heavy duty, frame-mounted tow hooks made of forged steel allow you to pull less capable vehicles than the Wrangler JK out of sticky situations.

Off-road king

The 2018 Jeep® Wrangler JK is one of the most capable off-road vehicles on the market today. It is able to ford waters up to 30 inches deep thanks to clever protection of key vehicle components and a high air intake that continually provides the 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine with the air it needs to produce all of its 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. That power is combined with two intelligent 4x4 systems, a low 34.6-foot turning diameter and a 42.2-degree approach angle to make the Wrangler JK inherently nimble and adept at tackling trails. Add a high-pinion Dana® 44 heavy-duty front axle, Tru-Lok® electronic remote locking differential, sway bar disconnect function and Mud-Terrain T/A® tires and the Wrangler JK becomes a true conqueror of all things off-road.

Safe and secure

Safety is of paramount importance at the wheel of a vehicle like the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler JK, which may take you on any number of adrenaline-packed adventures. Features like Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control and tire pressure monitoring help you keep things under control while off-road, while high-strength steel, Electronic Stability Control and anti-lock braking help keep you out of trouble at all times. The Wrangler JK also comes with a Sentry Key® theft deterrent system and remote keyless entry system, making it easier for you to keep your vehicle safe and secure at all times.

Thanks to its iconic style, off-road prowess and exceptional safety, it will take a lot to overtake the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler JK as the vehicle of choice among adventurers.
