At the 2023 New York Auto Show, Jeep took the wraps off the facelifted version of its popular Wrangler SUV. Originally launched in 2017, the fourth-generation Wrangler finally receives an update, featuring a refreshed front fascia, new alloy wheels, and a new 12.3-inch infotainment system.
In addition to these upgrades, the Wrangler facelift now comes with a smaller grille that has black slots as standard, except for the Wrangler Sahara trim. The slots are thinner than before and have been designed to enhance engine cooling. The reduced size of the grille has also freed up more space to install the heavy-duty Warn winch that is available with the Rubicon models. Furthermore, Jeep has introduced two new trims – the Sport S 4xe and Rubicon X – to the lineup.
On the sides, the new Wrangler SUV provides a choice of 10 different alloy wheel designs, ranging from 17 inches to 20 inches. Depending on the package, the Wrangler can be fitted with up to 35-inch tyres. The vehicle offers a variety of roof options, including the standard soft top, a body-coloured hard top, a black hard top, a combination of a hard and soft top, a Sunrider top that only opens up for the front passengers, and a dual-door group with half doors.
In addition to the exterior changes, the Jeep Wrangler facelift also received updates to its interior and features. The most notable change is the new 12.3-inch touchscreen that is now standard across all trims. The rectangular air conditioning vents are now positioned below the screen, replacing the round vents of the outgoing model. However, the round vents are still present at the corners of the dashboard. The overall visual design of the interior remains largely unchanged from the previous generation.
