The 2018 Jeep Wrangler can drop its top in record time thanks to some clever engineering


Jeep Wrangler owners love the small off-roader's utilitarian approach. Gas mileage? Awful. Refinement? Never heard of it. Capable of tackling the toughest trails straight from the factory? That's more like it!

However, there is a large subset of Wrangler owners who never get everything they can out of their Jeeps, and FCA engineers are doing everything they can to encourage them to try.

The next-generation 'JL' Wrangler has a totally revised top and windshield to allow for a quick transition from mall-crawler to safari-ready.


No more zippers and the whole process only takes about five minutes! The clever system especially improves the speed of dropping the windshield, which the Jeep representative estimates would take around an hour in the previous Wrangler.

Now there's no excuse for Jeeping with the top up.
