This is confirmed by the fact that previous generations had a long period of release:
- first yj (1987-1996);
- Second TJ (1997-2006).
Therefore, the release of each new modification is an event. Here is the presentation of the new generation of Jeep Wrangler 2018 of the model year, which is officially represented by the manufacturer, scheduled at the end of this year during a special event in Los Angeles.
Currently, the third generation of cars under the designation JK is produced, the production of which began in 2007.
