The new 2022 Jeep Wrangler will reportedly arrive next year with numerous upgrades. This iconic off-roader is one of the most recognized SUVs on the road.
However, the new Wrangler will continue with the same distinctive look, including more attractive seven-slot grille and round headlights. Besides, expect numerous high-tech features and much more impressive safety systems. Like the previous model, the new Wrangler will hit the dealerships with a proven V6 engine, alongside the more efficient hybrid version.
2022 Jeep Wrangler Redesign
Like before, we can expect the new 2022 Jeep Wrangler to be recognized by the same unique boxy appearance. As before, Jeep will continue to offer Wrangler in two forms, with two-door and four-door variants. On top of that, Wrangler is also known as the only model in its class that has ability for removing doors, a windshield, and a roof-top.
However, for 2022, Wrangler will introduce a couple of styling upgrades that should be visible mostly on the front. The changes will include a more attractive iconic seven-slot grille and round headlights equipped with better graphics.
Inside, the new 2022 Jeep Wrangler offers an excellent mix of traditional and modern styling. Generally, in this department, you should not expect significant upgrades over the previous one. From what we heard, the same cabin design should remain, as the layout. Of course, some small refreshments are welcome, and Jeep will most likely introduce a larger touchscreen. The current model comes standard with a five-inch unit, while upper trims bring a much bigger screen.
Generally, most likely that new Wrangler will use a optional 8.4-inch screen as standard with the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. Upper trims are the best choice, offering gorgeous Nappa leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, heated/ventilated seats, along with plenty of active-safety features.
2022 Jeep Wrangler Engine Specs
The new 2022 Jeep Wrangler will once again be powered by the same Pentastar V6 gasoline engine. This proven engine consists of a 3.6-liter V6 that delivers 285 horsepower. It also uses a six-speed manual transmission and FWD as standard. Optionally, one can get a more efficient 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that develops 270 horsepower. Unlike regular units, the optional will come with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The next optional powertrain can also be found under the Jeep Gladiator pickup. This unit consists of a 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel, and it makes 260 hp.
Perhaps the most exciting news is a 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe. This hybrid model combines a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine with electric motors. According to Jeep, the total output of this version is rated at 375 horses and 470 lb-ft of torque.
Generally, compared to the rest of the models in Wrangler’s lineup, this one is the most efficient. It delivers around 50MPGe and almost 30 miles of all-electric driving range.
Price and Release Date
The price of the two-door 2022 Jeep Wrangler will slightly increase. Reportedly, it will start at $28,500, which is 2000 more than before. However, going for the four-door Wrangler, the price will jump to $32,000. The sales should start at some point in 2021, and the new Wrangler will try to rival the Blue Oval`s new Ford Bronco model.
