Jeep Gives Us a Look at the Interior of the 2018 Wrangler JL
Slow Rollout of Jeep Info Continues with Cockpit
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL is on its way to the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month, and we’re down in New Zealand testing it out right now. But Jeep is keeping most of the information on its new baby under its hat, continuing the tease with two new interior shots of the Wrangler JL.
Taken from Jeep’s European press site, the images reveal an interior crafted from upgraded materials, at least on the Rubicon example seen here. A stitched dash top and body-color trim are some of the most obvious styling elements of the new design, but the entire cabin has been completely redesigned.
The photo Jeep also features contrast stitching on the transmission and transfer case shift boots, parking brake handle, and seats. Aluminum (or aluminum-look) accents appear on the steering wheel, gauge and vent bezels, and switch frames, with a knurled texture on both shift knobs.
Most interestingly, the photos also show some of the JL Wrangler’s available off-road features, including a sway bar–disconnect switch and locking front and rear differentials. Four auxiliary upfitter switches take up residence just in front of the shift lever, perfect for electrical accessories like off-road lighting and communications equipment. Also, for a vehicle with removable doors and a folding windshield (yay!), it’s not too surprising to see the USB and auxiliary media inputs, as well as the 12-volt power point, covered up.
