Jeep Wrangler fans are the type of enthusiasts who know and appreciate the history of the model, and Jeep knows that. Since we already knew just about everything about the 2018 Wrangler before the sheets came off in Los Angeles, we here at TTAC figured it might be interesting to take a closer look at some of the smaller details that go beyond horsepower, torque, and transmission type.

One of Jeep’s PR folks walked me through the various callbacks to prior Wranglers that are evident, if not obvious, on the new Wrangler.

Wrangler lovers will like the plaque mounted on the inside of the tailgate — it lists the JL’s dimensions and just looks cool.

The next cool detail is the roofline — the softtop can extend out past the C-pillar and give a bit of coverage to the rear cargo area, as shown here.

I wasn’t able to get quality photos, but the doors have different pull hooks and door pins than the current model.

The air vent shown here is functional, helping to cool the motor:

Two footman’s loops adorn the hood, as pictured here.

Perhaps most notable, the Jeep badge deserts the front grille and moves back to the bodyside.

And, of course, the windshield folds down, as previously reported.

The dash also returns to a flat-top design.

And finally, eagle-eyed readers will notice that the doors are bit more rounded-off — this is to make it easier to get in and out of the Jeep when off-roading.
