2018 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2017 Jeep Wrangler
The debut of the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler has caused quite a fuss in the auto industry and for good reason. This is the first time the Wrangler has received a full redesign in 11 years and the updates are extensive. Not only did Jeep make the SUV a bit larger, but there is a new engine and a variety of clever features that make the Wrangler even more functional. In fact, now drivers can remove the Wrangler's top not one, but three different ways. Inside the cabin the Wrangler sees more color and a generous array of new, luxurious features.
With all the additions, how does the 2018 Wrangler compare to the 2017 version? While the 2018 model is all-new, the most significant difference between it and the 2017 model are looks and functionality.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler gets two new engine options, which includes the turbodiesel engine slated for a 2019 release. A plug-in hybrid version is also on its way for 2020. Even with new power under the hood, the 2018 model still keeps its signature Wrangler charm. Both the 2018 and 2017 Jeep Wrangler models are off-roading beasts with the capability to tackle even the roughest terrain. The two models are both available in 2- and 4-door configurations and front- and all-wheel drive.
With that said, the 2018 Wrangler is slightly longer and wider and has a higher ground clearance than the 2017 model. The interior and exterior styling of the two models is also very different. The 2018 Wrangler receives revised front and rear fascia, including a new grille that is reminiscent of the Jeep CJ.
