If this is the 2018 Wrangler, Jeep purists have nothing to fear

The redesigned 2018 Jeep Wrangler should be just over the horizon, which has us both excited and a little nervous — the question is, as it always is when a new Wrangler is on way, whether Jeep can improve and maybe even (gasp!) slightly modernize the revered off-roader without losing the plot.

A pair of black and white renderings purportedly showing a four-door Wrangler JL Unlimited Rubicon, shared by JL Wrangler Forums, might give us our best look yet at the new take on the classic 4×4. There are a few surprises, but on the surface, there's nothing here that will trigger a freak-out.

Since last year, we’ve known that Jeep’s goal with the new Wrangler was to keep the same basic shape (and body-on-frame/solid axle formula) while cheating weight and wind wherever possible. Hence, more rake on the windshield, which we previously saw in spy photos; there could also be aluminum components like doors and a hood, but we’ll have to wait until we can sneak close to one with a magnet in hand to find out.
