Jeep has released the first official images of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler ahead of the iconic off-roader’s debut at the LA Auto Show at the end of the month.

These three images show the new Wrangler in two- and four-door formats. Jeep has not rocked the boat with its most famous model – the Wrangler’s design doesn’t depart from its trademark shape and face. The latter is a duet by the instantly recognisable keystone-shaped grille and round headlamps.

Jeep also claims “even more open-air freedom” and as you can see here, the doors and the top are removable. There’s also a fold-down windshield for off-road purists, and dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations will be available.

The FCA brand says that the new Wrangler will offer improved aerodynamics, advanced fuel-efficient powertrains, and more safety features and advanced technology than ever before.

No specs or details on the powertrain have been released, but a leaked user manual mentions a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder and a 3.6 litre V6 engine, with the 2.8 litre unit dropped. The four-pot has a 907 kg towing capacity, while the 3.6 can lug up to 1,587 kg. There’s a system designed to prevent trailer-snaking.
