Exterior and interior
About 200 pounds weight has been shed from the jeep by using lighter high strength steel and aluminum for making the hood, doors, fender flares, and hinges. The windshield is rounded with a lowered angle and it also got a subtle small spoiler at the back of the roof.
Some changes with internal roof support have also been made to accommodate the ragtop. The four doors are 2.5 inches longer than the present model and the two doors are 1.5 inches longer. The newer version has a higher ground clearance for off-road driving, which gives it a capacity to make it through 30-inch deep water too. The increased glass area all around the jeep helps in better visibility and it also has a removable windshield. Jeep has a push button and latest in-car infotainment system.
