2018 Jeep Wrangler Spied With A Manual Gearbox

The new generation 2018 Jeep Wrangler has been spotted several times in the last couple months, and each testing model showed something completely new. This means that the iconic off-road SUV might offer a big number of various options.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Gets Six-Speed Manual

For instance, we already saw the prototype that uses an eight-speed automatic transmission, yet today we caught the 2018 Jeep Wrangler with traditional manual transmission. Yes, the amazing vehicle will continue to offer the three-pedal setup, which will this time use a six-speed manual gearbox. This option may not deliver the respectable fuel economy as the eight-speed transmission, but the manual option will provide an inimitable feeling.

Engine Options

However, don’t you expect that the carmaker plans to offer all the engines with the manual option. Oh no, the manual 2018 Wrangler will likely get an updated 3.6L Pentastar V-6 and a new 2.0L I-4 turbo Hurricane engine. On the other hand, the oil-burner model with a 3.0L EcoDiesel V-6 mill will use just the eight-speed ZF transmission with an electronic shift lever. In addition, the next-gen Wrangler will also lose some weight, while the new exterior styling should bring more aerodynamic, so the fuel economy numbers must be better than earlier.

Of course, the amazing SUV isn’t just the engine and efficiency. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler will offer a lot more, starting from the new bodywork, which is really handsome, as well more useful features and even better off-road experience.

In any case, things are heating up and we will found out more information with the approaching of the release date of the new Wrangler, which is scheduled for the next year.
