The current generation of the legendary off-roader has been around since 2018. Despite the age, and the fact that the Ford Bronco is back, it looks like we won’t be seeing any updates for the next year. The next year’s model is about to carry on in the same way and that includes the four-door version as well, which will come as the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Of course, minor updates in terms of new features and color options are always possible, but the overall layout will remain the same.
All this means that you may count on a familiar design, which has a lot of great things to offer. Of course, excellent off-road capabilities are the first thing that comes to mind, but this SUV also offers generous passenger and cargo room, as well as a full load of customization options. Just like the current model, it will come with numerous engine options and all kinds of other upgrades.
As there are no significant changes to come, we expect that the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2023 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Design
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will continue in the same way. This means the same layout, with a four-door design and a pretty respectable 118.4 inches in wheelbase. No bigger changes are expected, though minor visual updates are always possible, especially in terms of new color options.
On the other hand, the mechanical aspect will definitely remain the same. This may not be the smoothest on-road rider but off-road performances are out of this world. All models come standard with goodies like four-wheel drive, skid plates, solid axles etc. In higher trim levels, you can get some pretty important upgrades, such as rock rails, locking differentials, super-low-range gearing, off-road tires etc.
The cabin design will remain the same. Therefore, you may count on the same dashboard design, which combines good build quality with materials that are both nice and durable. Also, the dash design looks modern, while there is also a fair amount of available tech features.
With more than 118 inches in wheelbase, it’s obvious that this SUV is pretty generous with passenger space. It comes with two rows of seats and unlike the two-door model, which is pretty tight in the second row, this one accommodates five adults with ease.
The cargo area also offers a pretty respectable volume. You may count on about 31.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats and 72.4 cubic feet, which is excellent for the class.
Although there is always a chance to see a few novelties in this aspect, we do not doubt that most things will remain the same in this aspect. Therefore, base models should come equipped with a pretty basic list of standard features, such as a 5-inch touch screen, an eight-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, and two USB ports. Of course, higher trim levels will offer much more. You may count on goodies like a 7-inch or an 8.4-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, HD Radio, satellite radio, a nine-speaker stereo, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 120-volt household-style power outlet, extra USB ports, air conditioning, automatic climate control, power windows, and door locks, remote keyless entry, proximity keyless entry, and remote start.
When it comes to safety, base models will come with a rearview camera only. The list of available safety features will include goodies like rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, forward-facing camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams etc.
2023 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Engines
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will continue with five engine options. Base models will continue with a good-old 3.6-liter V6, which features a max output of 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. A great thing about this engine is that, unlike the other units that come with an 8-speed automatic only, it can also come coupled with a 6-speed manual.
You may also count on a 2.0-liter turbo-four, with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, as well as on a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel that puts out 260 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque.
There is also a plug-in hybrid version, based on a turbo-four engine, with a total output of 375 horsepower. This system also provides around 20 miles of the all-electric range.
Finally, there is a version with a 6.4-liter V8 engine, with a max output of 475 horsepower.
2023 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will arrive sometime in the last quarter of the year. The base price should go around 34.000 dollars, while models like Ford Bronco and Toyota 4Runner will remain the key competitors.
