The most capable off-road vehicle in the world the all-new 2007 Jeep Wrangler made its debut at the North American International Auto Show here today. Seconds later, the legendary American icon left its own party.

After breaking out of a cage and appearing onstage, the all-new 2007 Jeep Wrangler drove offstage, through the auto show display area, into the Cobo Center lobby and smashed through the front window. The all-new Wrangler then climbed down a flight of Cobo Center stairs, proceeded up Washington Avenue and scaled the outdoor stairs at Detroit's Pontchartrain Hotel, before confidently climbing Jeep Mountain.

"Jeep is the 'go anywhere, do anything' brand, and the all-new 2007 Jeep Wrangler demonstrated that right out of the gate today," said Jeff Bell, Vice President Jeep, Chrysler Group. "Simply put, it is the best Jeep Wrangler ever. No vehicle in the world offers more off-road capability. Our all-new Jeep Wrangler offers more on-road refinement, space, comfort, open-air options, power, torque, safety and convenience."

Today's all-new 2007 Jeep Wrangler reveal marks the second time a Jeep vehicle introduction at the North American International Auto Show included outdoor activity. Fourteen years ago, at the 1992 show, a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee drove through Cobo Center's front window, marking its debut. Jeep is the only brand that has utilized the outdoors as part of a North American International Auto Show vehicle introduction.

That's how you debut a legend. Would've loved to have been there to see that live. Awesome.

WTF! No Diesel in the US?

From the Jeep site:
http://www.jeep.com/07wrangler/index.html?CMP=AFC-Autoshow
Check out the Full Specifications towards the bottom right.

Under Available Equipment
2.8L direct-injection, common-rail Diesel Engine (export only)
5-speed 545RFE optional with diesel engine (export only)

Once again the corporate bean counters have decided that Americans won't make an intelligent choice if given the option, or maybe OPEC inspired (paid) them to keep us burning on DinoFuels instead of biodiesel.

we all need to contact Jeep from their "contact us" form on their site and ask them why diesel is for export only, that we in the USA REALLY want a diesel (4-door for me)

those pictures are so obviously fake... the exterior shots, the refelctions in the windows don't match the surroundings, the shadows are off, very poor job...

Does it matter if they're fake or not? At least it gives a bit more of a look at the Wrangler.

I am thrilled to see pics of interior and exterior. No question.

But you would think an organization like DC would not so obviously have fake exterior shots. I would be much happier seeing real exterior shots in a studio, versus fake "action" shots...

Anyway, I am glad the cat is out of the bag. Just want to see real 4-door shots without the camo, and get a diesel option in the USA.

We know diesel is available "for export" and we know with almost absolute certainty a 4 door will be released by the end of the year too... but....

Diesel - 4-door - USA. PLEASE!!!!

I can't believe DC paid for that junky website. You'd hope that an important vehicle such as this would get more attention from their marketing people. I swear the Jeep web site is the worst of any OEM and they never fail to keep that track record going.

This is what I've been waiting for! I wasn't sure if I was going to trade my X in for a 06 Rubicon or an 07 Rubicon. I'll definately hold out for the 07. Best thing about it... Its red! Can't wait to see the 4 door...and pick-up? versions!

Glitter, glam and LED displays aside, the good folks at DCX and Jeep show that the little ole' Wangler has more style than most of the polished and shinny show room princesses. Jeff Bell proved that actions speak louder than press conferences.

Hopefully this does not lead to a bunch of copycat crimes of people driving their new Wranglers through plate glass windows.

I do like the new Wrangler. Obviously there is a bit of a change from the TJ but I do not think there is too drastic a change.

That is important. No matter if the Liberty, Grand Cherokee and Commander take on a more luxurious ride (while still remaining the most off-road capable vehicles in their class), the Wrangler should (and apparently has) maintain it's no nonsense, unbeatable, off-road legend status.

Wow! I can't wait to drive mine where humans fear to tread! I'll give Jeep a couple of years to get the bugs out first.
