The 2018 Jeep Wrangler was officially shown for the first time yesterday and won't make its debut until late November, but the automaker is already showing off the huge range of accessories that will be available for the off-roader.

Pretty much everyone in the off-road industry has been patiently awaiting the arrival of the next generation Jeep Wrangler.

Going by the released images, it is certain that fourth-gen Wrangler SUV would come in both 2-door and 4-door versions.

In the meantime, though, the Wrangler took the "Hottest 4x4 SUV" award at the Specialty Equipment Market Assn.

Jeep did not reveal any further details about the Wrangler but a user manual, which leaked online earlier this month, has previously revealed some details about the machine's powertrain options.

New Mopar products available for the Jeep Wrangler include Jeep Performance Parts lifts kits, beadlock-capable wheels, off-road bumpers, LED off-road lights and rock rails. The options are believed to a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a turbo-diesel option, electrified hybrid variants, or even an updated version of the 3.6-litre V6 mill used in the current model mated to eight-speed automatic transmission. It also has a system created to stop trailer snaking.

The displays also show a variety of information for off-roading, ranging from axle status and steering angle to the car's altitude, longitude and latitude. There is also a separate display for pitch and roll angles.

WITH roots going back to the legendary Willys Jeep of World War II you would expect the US-based maker to adopt an "if it ain't broke don't fix it" approach when it comes to updating the legendary Jeep Wrangler. For the new generation, the windscreen can be folded down.
