2018 Jeep Wrangler Secrets Revealed
If you’re a Mississauga Jeep fan, you’re probably looking forward to what the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will introduce. Will it introduce new engines, will there be brand new factories build to produce it, and what will Wrangler doors be made of? Well, look no further - automotive WikiLeaks are now here!
A forum for Wrangler enthusiasts recently revealed that the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will have doors and a hood made of aluminum. As outlined in a secretly leaked internal bulletin, the Wrangler next generation will use Aloca’s high form C6A1, as well as 6022 and A951. The front and rear doors, as well as the hood of the 2018 Wrangler will utilize the alloy in its manufacturing. The leak goes into a bit more detail, revealing that "A team in the Farmington Hills (Michigan, USA) Aerospace and Automotive Products group is leading a new profitable growth opportunity with the 2018 Jeep Wrangler program. The next generation Jeep becomes the first to utilize our C6A1 high form alloy; we are currently the only supplier of this high form product.”
Sergio Marchionne, the CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles had announced earlier this year that heavy doses of aluminum would be included in the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, but that aluminum would not be solely used throughout. And yes, it was announced that new engines are anticipated for the 2018 model, as well as a new pickup version. The next Wrangler is expected to be manufactured in Toledo, Ohio. A new Illinois plant is scheduled to be built, and FCA will spend around $1.05 billion on retooling its current Wrangler factory.
