      More leaks reveal possible production dates for Wrangler

    Thanks to all of the various leaks that have been coming out over the past couple of months, we have a good idea of what to expect with the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Thanks to a new leak, we now have a possible timeline of Wrangler production.

    JL Wrangler Forums got their hands on various production dates that are said to come from FCA directly. Production of the four-door Wrangler will begin first on November 13, 2017. The models will feature the 3.6L V6 and a hardtop. JL Wrangler Forums has learned that FCA is considering bumping the production start to October 30, 2017. Nevertheless, if either date proves to be true, this will be ahead of the debut of the new Wrangler at the LA Auto Show.

    Other dates to be aware of,

    • February 12, 2018: Production begins on 2-Door and Turbocharge 2.0L
    • March 31, 2018: Production ends on the current Wrangler (previous reports said that both the old and new model would be built side by side for up to a year)
    • August 6, 2018: Start of 3.0L Diesel V6 production

      With most of the releases of the New York International Auto Show officially out already, there is not much left to leak.  However, there was still the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS that was yet to be seen.  A trove of those pictures have leaked out tonight.
      We'll leave these here for you to peruse and comment on, but as this is an unofficial leak there is no technical information available yet.

      Infiniti's Qs Inspiration sedan that was teased a few days ago has leaked out ahead of the Shanghai Motor Show.  The Inspiration Qs is a preview of what an Infiniti electric car will look like. 
      The EV that comes from the Qs Inspiration's ..er.. inspiration will be manufactured and sold in China in about 3 years.  There are no plans yet to export that car to other markets.  Infiniti has said that by 2021 all newly launched models will be EVs or "e-Power" hybrids. 
      For the Qs Inspiration, designer Karim Habib had a freer hand in the design as EVs do not have the bulk of the mechanicals the accompany internal combustion engines.  Floors can be flat and interior room can be greatly increased.  
      Infiniti will be competing with Tesla, Audi, Polestar, and others in the EV race in China.
      We'll have more for you once the official release of the Infiniti Qs Inspiration concept is made in Shanghai.
