New Wrangler stays true to form

According to Mopar boss Pietro Gorlier, more than 98% of Wranglers sold feature some form of customisation options, with the most popular options side steps and a noise-reducing headliner.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler isn't even on sale yet and Mopar already has parts for the new off-roader at this week's SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

The first official images of the new Jeep Wrangler have been released ahead of the machine's official launch at the Los Angeles motor show next month. "Get your parts first, get the Wrangler later", we're guessing is Jeep's logic here. As you can see here, the Wrangler will continue to be offered with two doors or four and your choice of hard- or soft-top, and an evolutionary design that stays true to the iconic Jeep shape. The doors still come off, too. These include a new 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline inline-four, the 2.8-liter turbo-diesel and the renowned 3.6-liter Pentastar V6.

A roll cage mounted Sound Bar audio system can be seen on the Rubicon.

The 2018 model does get a fold-down windshield for off-roading purists to enjoy. Jeep says 98 percent of Wrangler owners have at least one Mopar product on their vehicle, so these products should prove to be fairly popular among owners.

This compass won't show you the way, but the hole in the middle is very revealing.

The Mopar brand's line of Jeep Performance Parts and accessories for the all-new Wrangler was developed in conjunction with the Jeep brand and product design office through extensive development, testing, and validation. The tailgate table flips down from the rear hatch, creating a workspace complete with a beverage holder. And speaking of tires, Mopar's cover for the tailgate-mounted spare has a portal for the Wrangler's backup camera.
