2007 Jeep Wrangler Spy Photos!!!

"The Jeep Wrangler is receiving a ground-up redesign for the 2007 model year. Along with an all-new version of the standard model, Jeep is also working on a new four-door version. The Wrangler's construction will shift from the current TJ platform to an all-new platform dubbed "TK". The four-door Wrangler will be considerably larger than the current Wrangler, with substantial increases in both length and width. This four-door Jeep is expected to borrow a fair amount of its looks from the Jeep Gladiator concept pickup. Both the standard and four-door 2007 Jeep Wrangler models will feature extensive safety features and more luxury than current Wrangler drivers are accustomed to. Available engines will most likely include a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and a 3.7-liter V6, with perhaps even a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 as an option for the four-door Wrangler. The success of the Jeep Liberty diesel might also pave the way for a Wrangler CRD as well. Any of these engines will be paired with either a five-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission."




I know these are early photos --- but it almost kinda sorta looks like it still has a solid front axle.

Re: 2007 Jeep Wrangler Spy Photos!!!

verrryyy interesting

i think i see a control arm in one of the pics....so looks like solid axle

i like the side view profile of the 4 dooor...., not sure what i think of the front view yet(from what i can see through the body camoflage stuff).....

lets all hope for solid axles, beefy drive train (with low gear), and a top that can still come off! CRD would be sweet....getting 27MPG in a jeep!

I do like the sound of an optional hemi V8.

Re: 2007 Jeep Wrangler Spy Photos!!!

I gotta agree with Galen on the beatiful square headlights! I read awhile back that the 07 would have a solid front axle but they're going to be from AAM. These are the axles Chrysler is using instead of Dana's. Also the optional V8 was mentioned but was said to be the 4.7l from the Grand Cherokee.

Check out the Dodge Power Wagon. The beefy, locked axles under it are by AAM. Of course the article I read didn't know which size axles would be used in the Wrangler. Hopefully they'll go big.

Re: 2007 Jeep Wrangler Spy Photos!!!

cool thanks Aaron....i googled it and found this

http://www.aam.com/technology/tech_p...frontaxle.html

for anyone else who is clueless like me [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

they got a lot of differential options including E-lockers....the bigger axles (which i assume they'd use in the jeeps) have wide ratio options too

AAM is the company that makes GM's corporate axles... i.e. the ungodly strong 14 bolt... and the 10 bolt (not everything can be a hit).
