Jeep Wrangler JK Interior

The newly-redesigned interior in the new Wrangler JK has a very 21st-century vibe to it, while keeping the rugged quality you’ve come to expect. Seats come standard with premium cloth upholstery, but you can upgrade to leather if you like. With legroom measuring 41 inches in the front row and 35.6 inches in the rear, there’s room for adults throughout.

You’ll find plenty of room for cargo in the rear of the Wrangler JK. It has nearly 12.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, more than enough for your weekly grocery run. Fold the rear seats, and you get 56.5 cubic feet of cargo space—perfect for packing up your beach gear for a day at Lake Ray Hubbard or Lake Lavon.

Jeep Wrangler JK Specs

Under the hood of the Jeep Wrangler JK, a 3.6L Pentastar® V-6 engine provides 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, for incredible low-speed crawling capacity. You can choose between two four-wheel drive systems:

  • Command-Trac® 4×4: Delivers equal power to all four wheels.
  • Rock-Trac® 4×4: Helps you crawl at lower speeds with more torque increase at the wheels.

The Wrangler JK can handle high water well. When you come across streams, small creeks, or deep storm puddles, this SUV’s sealed body and electrical systems help you conquer the elements and ford through up to 30 inches of water.

Jeep Safety Features

Did we mention the 2018 JK can tow up to 2,000 pounds? If you need to trailer an ATV or jet ski behind you, the standard Electronic Stability Control system includes Trailer Sway Control. It senses trailer sway and can help apply the brakes to slow your Wrangler and keep it (along with the trailer) secure on the road.

To enhance your braking power, a four-wheel disc Antilock Brake System will track your wheel speeds and brake each wheel individually to help give you a shorter stopping distance. Whether you’re driving on wet or dry surfaces, it can help you avoid or mitigate accidents and keep your Wrangler JK under control.
