Export model in case anyone wondering why front bumper looks different.
Our time was late and my intervention was going to be long, so I apologize for the delay in answering.

The front bumper looks sleek but actually why are these multiple shapes of front bumper? Does each country or market have a different bumper?
Why does Wrangler do this and the other companies do not? Is it a drain on money in things that are not important?

There are other different things and not the front bumper alone.

Europe requires different bumpers that do not have large gaps that are more likely to grab a pedestrian and drag them vs pushing them to the side like a train’s cowcatcher... though about as effectively and as Sheldon on Big Band says: .. the more accurate "cow exploder."
I’m not sure how much more effective these ‘pedestrian bumpers’ really are but that’s the theory. And all vehicles must meet those requirements, but for most other vehicles / manufactures it’s not a big issues as most don’t have a big gap like that.

And since the US doesn’t have that law, then they are designed for the best combination/balance of on-road protection for the vehicle’s occupants and off-road capability of the Wrangler.

I’m not sure about the aerodynamic impact, but it definitely means that not as much water sprays up and out the front, and also means more snow and much can get trapped there too.

If this is for Europe how do you explain the lack of rear fog lights? Is not that strange!

I dunno, might be somewhere not immediately visible/noticeable or a separate add-on. I know they used to be optional based on region when I was living there, but don’t know the requirement now.

BTW, I think the rear fog light is a Brilliant idea (literally), although I did find it strange the first time I saw one on the road in Germany, but when I was told what they were for I was 110% in favour of them and wish(ed) we had them here in N.Am. where fog (and foul weather) is not uncommon in the areas I go with my Wranglers.

Yes Perhaps the logical explanation is that the rear fog lights are optional.
