WranglerFirst Unmasked Photo of New Wrangler?
Posted by mike on 2006/1/5 17:13:45 (4045) reads

Is this the first photo of the new Wrangler? The quality isn't good, the photo is kind of small, but this photo is making the rounds in the All-Par forums.

It looks like the photo (and the text that accompanies it) are from a scan of a magazine article. Has anyone seen this in print somewhere?

From the photos there are head restraints on the back seat.

The picture is from the February issue of Automobile magazine. The magazine indicated that the wrangler doors would still be removable, but that they would include (presumably as an option) power windows.

I'd say this is a legitimate magazine spread of photo's of the new rig! It's obvious that when you compare this rig with the Gladiator concept photos that the Wrangler and Gladiator nose and interior are from the same vehicle family! I like it a lot! I would now dare say that the Gladiator is indeed a serious production consideration for DCX.

The interior is a tad disappointing to me on first glance as I had hoped for a more CJ inspired center mount speedo type of a layout. But the exterior is stunning in its the same way that the new Land Rover products are stunning in their design which is very minimal and effectively utilizing circles and clean simple lines as a design motif. The new Wrangler family appears to offer better exterior build quality too when I look at the photos I see better fit and better finish than previous models offered.

I hope it is very, very capable off road and that the V6 is accompanied by a diesel and V8 option.

I'm sure once I see one in person the interior will grow on me a bit, especially if they spice it up with other color combinations such as the one in the Gladiator concept.

Way to go DCX! And please do build us a Gladiator variant-I will buy one.

I love it! I was a little scared they weren't going to put a removable top on the Wrangler after seeing the Rescue and reading some misinformation. I hope they launch the 4-door at the same time and it comes with a Diesel!
I am so thrilled to see they kept the same lines and charachter to the real Jeep. So they can build it to look good.
But can they build it powerful, durable and efficient?
