Future Jeep Wrangler would have an alloy unibody and new engine
|   Wednesday, November 05, 2014
Jeep is planning high-tech engineering for its next Wrangler. Alloy body would replace its steel-on-frame body and turbocharged engines would replace the existing ones. This move is anticipated to open a technical lead over its rival, the Land Rover Defender.

Chairman of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Sergio Marchionne has proclaimed this big news for Jeep. He has suggested that Jeep should be modernized while preserving its capabilities that define Wrangler.
There is no confirmation whether Jeep would discard its body-on-frame architecture, but this new Wrangler won't be produced in existing Toledo plant.

3.6 litre V6 engine of US models and 2.8 litre 4-cylinder Diesel engine could be replaced with a single or twin-turbo 2.0 litre diesel or petrol unit. This engine would be able to produce a higher torque and power along with higher performance compared to the existing engine lineups.

By implementing an alloy unibody, Wrangler would be able to cut off 400 kgs from its original kerb weight. It would also help lower down the amount of emissions and increase its performance.
