• Visual Comparison: Jeep Wrangler JL vs JK

    Jeep Wrangler JK vs JL Every square inch of the Wrangler has been reworked; from the new grille to the new taillights, the Wrangler JL is wholly different from the outgoing Wrangler JK. The four-door Sahara model wears a new bumper design with chrome around the fog lights, the new LED headlights, and those fender-mounted daytime running lights and turn signals. The front fender has that much-debated heat extractor. The two-door Rubicon comes with a vented hood, too. The doors now have a strong beltline under the windows, as well. Overall, the Jeep’s exterior is completely new, yet still instantly recognizable.
  • Full-side comparison Arguably one of the biggest exterior updates is the new windshield and sports bar design. The sports bar, sometimes called the roll bars, now has body-colored trim and solid A-pillar supports. Even with the doors, top, and windshield folded, the Wrangler JL still provides a full cage of rollover protection for its occupants
  • Side details The side profile has changed very little, but some noticeable differences include an elevated ride height, flatter wheel arches, revised mirrors, and new door handles.
  • Up Top and Around Back Jeep says the windshield is much easier to fold, too, something that was an hour-long job on the previous JK. Large grab handles on the A-pillar supports are a welcomed byproduct of the permanent roof supports.
  • Up Front Elsewhere on the red, two-door Rubicon model, we can see it comes with an updated steel front bumper, much like the one on the outgoing JK. It still features removable end caps and the hollow center section that’s ready for a winch.

There are changes a plenty

The wait is finally over! Jeep has released photos of the next-generation Wrangler. Unfortunately, Jeep only dropped three photos with zero information, but the soft debut confirms much of the speculation, rumors, and spy shots we’ve been pouring over the last year. Yes, the 2018 Wrangler JL’s windshield folds down. Yes, the doors come off. And Yes, the top is removable. Yet beyond these carryover features that have come to define the Wrangler, this new Jeep is heavily updated in all the right ways. Check out our visual comparison below to learn all about the new Wrangler JL
