The early leak provides hundreds of pages of details ahead of the JL's official unveiling in November.The redesigned Jeep Wrangler appears to have been extensively detailed a few weeks ahead of its official unveiling, thanks to a leaked user manual posted by JL Wrangler Forums.The JL-generation documentation confirms speculation pointing to a choice between a 2.0-liter Hurricane turbocharged engine and a revised 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, though power and torque specs are not listed.
The downsized engine is paired with an intercooler, hinting at output specs similar to the Alfa Romeo Giulia's 2.0-liter mill that boasts 280 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque. The off-roader appears to be available with a mild hybrid starter/generator system, however, which could provide a bit more power and a significant torque boost.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has added a power sliding top, which can be operated at speeds of up to 60 mph. The top itself will be non-removable, but drivers can still stow the rear quarter windows.
The windshield can still be dropped onto the hood, while the door removable procedure appears to be simplified slightly via repositioned bolts.
As expected, several different four-wheel-drive systems will be available. Some variants appear to be equipped with front/rear electronic axle lockers and even a swaybar disconnect feature that can be engaged from a button on the dashboard.
The driver information system boasts a new Off Road Pages feature that shows current transfer case status, latitude/longitude, altitude, pitch/roll angles, steering angle and other relevant information.
The leak provides hundreds of pages of information, though a few surprises could be in store for the JL's November reveal.
