In August we heard the 2018 Jeep Wrangler stays true “to its current form,” with a similar silhouette, steel body and two solid axles. That doesn’t mean a bevy of changes aren’t in store, though, with AllPar reporting a self-leveling suspension system will be found in the next-generation off-roader.
The self-leveling suspension system is being implemented because the Wrangler is too tall to fit in some customers’ garages, AllPar sources said. It’s not a far-fetched idea, as both the Jeep Cherokee and Ram Rebel already feature air suspension systems.
Like on the Ram 1500, the rumored air suspension on the 2018 Wrangler will likely be an option. Buyers of the off-road oriented Rubicon (or perhaps an even more off-road focused model) would find the system useful as they could have a high ground clearance like the Ram Rebel while also being able to put the vehicle in garages and multi-story car parks.
The air suspension system is simply a rumor at this point, but we should get the skinny on it once Fiat Chrysler unveils the next-gen Wrangler sometime in 2017.
