Wrangler Wednesday: All-new 2018 Jeep® Wrangler ready to tackle tough terrain

The 4×4 pedigree of the all-new 2018 Jeep® Wrangler was established over the years on the battlefield, off-road trails and many other challenging terrains.

This long history of 4×4 mastery was rolled into the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler with two advanced driveline systems. The Command-Trac® and Rock-Trac® 4×4 systems provide ground-pounding grip for any adventure thrown the Wrangler’s way.

Command-Trac® 4×4 System

The Command-Trac® 4×4 system, with an NV241 transfer case, allows drivers to get through any off-road obstruction or weather condition with ease. This shift-on-the-fly 4×4 system can be engaged while in motion and up to speeds of 55 mph. It also features a 2.72:1 low range for rock crawling and neutral for available flat towing.

Wrangler Sport and Sahara models equipped with the standard six-speed manual transmission benefit from a 48.18:1 crawl ratio, while Sport and Sahara models with the eight-speed automatic transmission feature a 44.20:1 crawl ratio.

Rock-Trac® 4×4 System

The Rock-Trac 4×4 system gives drivers superior off-road performance, more control and more torque. This system is standard on Wrangler Rubicon models, and comes with an enhanced NV241 OR transfer case with a 4:1 low gear ratio. The Rubicon’s off-road prowess is further bolstered by the all-new Tru-Lok electronic locking differentials and an electronic front sway-bar disconnect.

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.
