Thanks to a quick acting witness with his cell phone, here are images of posters from a FCA dealer event which shows the next gen JL Wrangler's nose and tail.

These images were displayed on a poster at a FCA dealer meeting which showed the entire current (as well as future) Jeep lineup. Two future models were revealed, the Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer and the all new Jeep Wrangler (JL)!

The images confirm what the spied prototypes have been previewing:

  • European style front bumper (longer and extends up to meet fender flares)
  • LED turn signal light strips integrated into fender flares
One interesting thing to note is that these may be images of the JT Pickup Truck as the rear only shows a tailgate and no greenhouse (which disappears in the distance). However, the overall design and styling elements should be the same among the upcoming Pickup, Sport and Unlimited versions.

Doesnt look much different. Thats a good thing!

Any news of official reveal? No news about the pick up version?

What a tease. Thanks for these though!

No rubber windscreen stops though...

Wow good grab! Definitely seems to be the pickup pictured. You would at least see the rear glass/pillar frame if this was the standard Wrangler.

From the admin's description seems this is the JT Wrangler pickup truck. Make sense, you can't see see the cockpit in the image (but you can on the Cherokee next to it).

This is definitely what I'd call an evolutionary design rather than revolutionary.

Looks like Admin updated the post since I posted, either that or my morning coffee didnt kick and and I missed the whole bottom paragraph.

If it is the JT then is just me but the bed height seems really short. Also a little bummed about the spare tire on the rear tailgate, but Im sure the aftermarket can fix that. I was hoping for a more AEV brute rear end.



Also this would make is seem like that Pick Up will share the same front end as the JL and not have its own unique name like some though the Crew Chief 715 concept might have been hinting at.

Another possibility is that those are simply renderings of CAD models.

I think that's definitely possible. It doesn't have every last detail, like windshield wipers for example.

If there's barely any changes besides a slightly larger vehicle and a roof that may not be fully removed I'll go for the JK. Assuming there will be a price increase and some cheap JK's to be had. I'm still holding out hope there's a few surprises we haven't seen. Why else build a "new" wrangler.

Looks like the tail lights will finally get some flair! They seem to feature an X design without looking exactly like the Renegade's lights.

The pics are blurry but from what I can tell the X design actually reminds me of the design of military jerrycans, which would be a cool look!

Yea there's that but what about for the thousands that will opt for non-diesel versions? There's going to have to be a price increase to recoup the costs somehow.

Also 8 speed trans, lighter, better fuel economy, I would guess improved road handling, and probably some more off road capabilities.
