2023 Jeep Wrangler Redesign: What”s New? What’s Good? – The Jeep Wrangler symbolizes brutal practicality… although for a particular set of talents. Do you want to crawl through the rocks? Get yourself a Jeep Wrangler. Do you want to do some mud bogging? Wrangler. Between the PCH and the Appalachians, there are plenty of places to go off-road. Wrangler. Want to boost the ante on your next shopping trip? You get my drift.
The current Wrangler is as powerful as ever, with an incredible amount of customizability. It comes with 2 or 4 doors and a V8 engine to optimize your power when squeezing past enormous boulders — or to pick up your friends on the way to a tailgate.
An electric Wrangler concept was tested by Stellantis in Moab in early 2021, which indicates the company is serious about making its gas-powered vehicles more environmentally friendly.
When the Detroit News ran a story on August 20, 2021, Stellantis said that the first all-electric Jeep would be out in the first half of 2023. A Wrangler with a battery may be the one.
For the gas-powered JL, expect minimal midcycle updates. Although the Ford Bronco will have made its official premiere by the Jeep Wrangler’s debut in 2023, this should not require Jeep to rethink its flagship vehicle.
The exterior of a 2023 Jeep Wrangler will be similar to its predecessor. On the other hand, the classic style will be refreshed, primarily on the front end. Jeep does not intend to fundamentally alter the formula of one of the world’s most renowned vehicles. There will be 2 versions of this model, much like the last one. There are two models available: a 2-door and a 4-door.
Compared to the 4-door Unlimited variant, the 2-door vehicle is roughly 20 inches longer in terms of length. Both models have a boxy form that may be traced back to the Jeep’s WW II predecessors. However, the firm does offer a Wrangler 4xe with appealing blue exterior decorations.
The High Altitude 4×4 Wranglers and Rubicon trims are the most recognizable vehicles, thanks to the Electric Blue front and rear tow hooks, as well as blue-highlighted badging on the front and rear bumpers.
We don’t foresee any considerable internal modifications compared to the prior model. The new Jeep Wrangler features total seating for four or five passengers depending on the model. While the two-door Jeep Wrangler can fit four passengers, a popular four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited can accommodate five passengers.
The longer 4-door Wrangler also has more legroom and cargo space in the back. The 2018 Wrangler is expected to keep the same dash with larger center screens on the technological front.
The current model’s infotainment display is available in sizes ranging from 5 to 8.4 inches in diameter. According to numerous rumors, the next model will finally enable Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It’ll also look a lot like the future Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
Under the hood, we expect nothing to change. The Jeep Wrangler is a one-of-a-kind SUV with five engine options. The base model has a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with 285 horsepower and a 6-speed manual transmission. There is, however, the possibility of upgrading to an 8-speed automatic transmission. In addition to the engine, purchasers will receive an eTorque mild hybrid system, which will improve fuel economy.
There’s also a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 270 horsepower and a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 with 260 horsepower & 442 lb-ft of torque. Under the hood of the Rubicon model is the most powerful engine.
This engine is a 6.4-liter V8 that produces 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet torque. Thanks to its engine, the Wrangler sprints to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, yet it still handles off-road terrain with ease.
Release Date and Cost
The Jeep Wrangler will remain a classic SUV with a distinctive boxy look in 2023. If speculations are believed, the SUV will be released next year. We anticipate a slight price rise compared to the present model.
For $28,295, the 2-door Wrangler Unlimited is offered, with the 4-door Wrangler Unlimited starting at $31,500 (plus destination charges). The most expensive model is the Wrangler 4xe, which comes in three trim levels: Sahara ($47.995), Rubicon ($51,695), and High Altitude ($53,815).
