2018 Jeep Wrangler Specs
Features, Exterior, and Interior
A memo has been leaked recently, which is apparently from the supplier of the aluminum, Alcoa. On the note, Alcoa mentioned that Jeep order aluminum elements for the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler model. It includes Alcoa C6A1, which is the new high form of the alloy, and 6022, which is aluminum alloy sheet. And, A951, which is pre-treatment aluminum layer bonding tech for the automobile.
We can also translate the order into the new model will use this aluminum for the inner and outer part of the hood as well as inner part of the door. In addition to it, it has been revealed that Alcoa signed a contract with Jeep to supply three different kinds of high form alloy, which will be used for body construction.
This should confirm a statement from Sergio Marchionne, the FCA CEO, that this new 2018 Jeep Wrangler model will use the heavy dose of aluminum on its body. There are possibilities in here. First, the new design will use only these aluminum orders on its body. Second, the new model will have more aluminum derived from another supplier.
In addition to it, the new design will also feature signature elements on its body. It should include ladder-frame platform, hinged doors, rectangular windshield, seven-slat grille, and circular headlights with LED lighting inclusion.
