Wrangler Wednesday: Technology and capability offered in the all-new 2018 Jeep® Wrangler

The all-new 2018 Jeep® Wrangler offers unmatched off-road capability, a design that is true to its roots and some of the latest technological features.

These tech features in the redesigned Wrangler provide drivers the ability to quickly start their vehicles, obtain vehicle information and easily listen to their curated playlists from their electronic devices.

When drivers get behind the wheel, they will notice the push-button starter. This feature is making its debut on the 2018 Wrangler and is weather-proof. This helps protect the starter from the variety of elements the Wrangler may encounter.

Once the driver settles in, the instrument cluster features a 3.5- or an available 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) information LED display. The 7-inch LED display allows the driver to configure information in more than 100 ways, including displaying the current media being played, tire pressure or digital speed readout.

Integrated buttons on the steering wheel control audio, voice and speed functions and allow the driver to keep their hands on the wheel at all times.

In the center console, there is a 7–inch touchscreen or an available 8.4-inch touchscreen, which is the largest and most advanced Uconnect system display ever offered on Wrangler. A 5-inch touchscreen is standard on Wrangler Sport.

The new fourth-generation Uconnect systems on the Sahara and Rubicon models offer an enhanced user interface and system performance with quicker start up times and improved screen resolution along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Uconnect systems also provide a range of available hands-free communication, entertainment and navigation features.

USB ports in the 2018 Jeep Wrangler.

There are two USB ports up front and two in reach of occupants in the back seat that connect to the media center. Standard 12-volt accessory outlets are located throughout the all-new Wrangler and a 115-volt AC outlet is available to power select three-pronged home electronics.

Hello from the Motor City! I’m Edward Cardenas and I’m multimedia editor for FCA US. As a lifelong Detroiter, I have been surrounded by the automotive industry. I’ve had members of my immediate and extended family work in the industry. I’ve covered it as a journalist and advocated for it as a communications professional. I have also experienced the thrills of the industry while riding in a race car at nearly 200 miles per hour. Having this breadth of experience, I look forward to drawing upon my experiences to bring a wide range of stories, photos and videos about Chrysler, FIAT and Alfa Romeo to FCA Digital Media. When I’m not covering my brands, I’m spending time with my wife and two boys.
