This is probably the most recognizable SUV in the world. It was originally launched in 1986 as direct successor of the iconic WW2 Willys model, which was present for many decades. Although 2016 Jeep Wrangler won’t come as fourth generation and won’t be redesigned, we will still see some changes. The look might remain the same, but there will be plenty of upgrades – weight reduction, new engine, new suspension etc.
2016 Jeep Wrangler redesign
The 2016 Jeep Wrangler will have the same classic look as previous models. However, you should not be fooled with the body work – there are plenty if changes in new model. The main upgrade will definitely be a weight reduction. It seems that total weight of the SUV will be drastically decreased, which promises much better performances and also big improvement in terms of fuel economy. The new Jeep Wrangler will also get new suspension. New, air suspension system will be used instead of Wranglers well-known and proven rugged solid axles. Although many of us will be disappointed with this change, the company’s management said that this change was necessary, because this SUV was too heavy. This change definitely brings better fuel economy but on the other side, 2016 Wrangler’s off-road capabilities will be questionable, although company claims that they will be on the same level.

With this engine new 2016 Wrangler will have not only better performances but also much better fuel economy. Compared to 19 mpg, 30 mpg looks like big improvement.
