2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Interior
In regular editions, the cabin looks less Spartan and cheap. Material quality has improved significantly through the focus is still on functionality than a luxury. There are enough soft-touch surfaces in the cabin now. As for cargo space, it does vary from one trim to another. Two door models get only 12.8 cubic feet cargo space as standard.
For the Unlimited trim, it is 31.5 cubic feet. However, the cabin in any trim is not silent by any means. The models like Sahara and Rubicon will get Garmin Navigation, SiriusXM Satellite Radio Radio 430 NAV features and a 6.5-inch touchscreen. Also, all models will come with nine-speaker Alpine All-Weather Premium Sound System. The interior will be available with Black w/Cloth Seats w/Adjustable Head Restraints, Cloth seat w/Golden Eagle Logo, Leather Seat w/Cloth (Sedoso Fabric) [Black]
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK gets a fair amount of safety technologies and included amenities are quite good too. The number of airbags is less than what you get in other Jeep models though. Sadly the rearview camera has been left optional.
The fact is there are plenty of options for all trims, at extra cost. Also, features like Antilock Brake System, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Electronic Roll Mitigation, Antilock Brake System, Trailer Sway Control are included. For the better straight side-impact is improved with High-strength steel that is integrated into the design.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK has a beefy 3.6-liter V-6 engine that generates 285 horsepower. It can be laden with a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic gearbox.
On city roads, the drive is hard and jittery in more or less all trims. But, take the vehicle to off-road terrains and the experience is totally different. The hill-start assist works well as does the specially tuned suspension. Its enhanced ground clearance helps tame rocky terrains as well.
