The five-year plan Fiat-Chrysler company announced a series of significant changes to the Jeep models. However, for the year 2017 is expected completely redesign of their legendary Wrangler model. These changes largely drew attention the audience from the present Renegade model, and announced 2018 Wagoneer. For the last 20 years, Jeep Wrangler and CJ models are manufactured at the Toledo Assembly Plant. After all the planned changes through which will pass 2017 Jeep Wrangler, the company was forced to abandon the tradition. At least as far as the production site.
On current sources, 2017 Jeep Wrangler will be subjected lightweight technology and turbocharging. Although it will drop some of its heavy-duty heritage, 2017 Jeep Wrangler shall retain a distinctive look. The exterior design will be modernized, but a lot of the hallmarks of Wrangler models continue to be present. A complete redesign, which begins changing platforms, using aluminum in construction, and reinforced the new engines, it might sound scary to the fans of this off-road SUV. The company justifies all the changes clear tracking of new standards, requirements within the fuel consumption and the emergence of new technological developments.
By all accounts, the company plans to build a new platform designed exclusively 2017 Jeep Wrangler. It fully should support a new aluminum frame. Unlike the current structure consisting of separate elements, the new 2017 Wrangler will form a unique whole body, frame and supporting elements. This is the main reason for the cessation of production of a new generation Wrangler models in Toledo. Training of this plant for the production of the completely redesigned Wrangler 2017 would cost the company an additional investment. The decrease in the total weight of the vehicle will affect another change. Spare wheel, another of the distinguishing characteristics of this model will no longer be present. At least not at that place and at that size. Spare wheel should get a new place. Wheel not full size, will be attached to the floor of the vehicle.
2017 Jeep Wrangler Engine
Improvement of power units of the new 2017 Jeep Wrangler models are not limited to adding turbo chargers to existing engines. The current model raises 3.6 V6 naturally aspirated engine. It delivers 280 hp and 347 Nm of torque. Average fuel consumption of Wrangler SUV with this engine is 11.7 liters per 100 km. These figures, the company with a plan tries to adapt to today’s needs and standards. Turbochargers, which are expected as part of the drive systems are intended for different engines. These are aggregates of smaller volume. They will provide the same performance to 2017 Jeep Wrangler off-road SUV model, and perhaps even better. Turbocharged engines of small volume are all present on the US market. From buyers are expected to accept the fact that this engine can be just as efficient as the old one large volume.
