What's New for 2018: Jeep

December 13, 2017

For 2018, Jeep reinvents its icon: the Wrangler. That's no small feat, and not one that comes often.

Fortunately, the off-road brand didn't merely slap lipstick on the dated outgoing model and it didn't bow to regulators in search of massive fuel economy gains. Instead, it's more capable than ever. Anywhere.

The rest of the Jeep lineup isn't quite as newsworthy, but there are some notable infotainment system upgrades for the Renegade and Grand Cherokee. Additionally, the Compass, which was new last year, adds an additional configuration.
