2018 Jeep Wrangler Poughkeepsie NY

There’s so much history behind the Jeep Wrangler that spawned from the Willys MB that was used during World War II and vintage Jeep CJ that first hit roads in the Mid Hudson Valley NY in 1944 into the model that we know today that started taking adventures on and off the road in 1986.

Now, the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler represents the 4th generation of this SUV. Codenamed the Wrangler JL, this vehicle combines new heritage & modern design cues with even more capability and loads of updated amenities. With that being said, let’s take a look at all of the changes for the next-gen Wrangler.

As you can tell, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler has a different look from the 2017 editions that were so popular at our dealership serving Beacon NY. For starters, the keystone-shaped 7-slot grille's design is influenced by the Jeep CJ. Other exterior updates are comprised of:

  • Platinum chrome bezel surrounding the inboard/outboard circular HVAC vents
  • Cloth or leather-contoured seats with accent stitching, adjustable bolster & lumbar support
