2017 Jeep Wrangler Ready To Take On The Defender

By  | 

If we were to pick a model to go up against the Land Rover Defender, it will have to be the Jeep Wrangler Africa.

The Jeep Wrangler Africa concept was created for the annual Jeep Easter Safari event this year. What makes the Africa stand out from the other concept is how practical it is.

The base of the Wrangler Africa is the four-door Wrangler Unlimited. The Africa concept will be given a higher roof as well as a longer truck. Powering it is a 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine that will come mated to a five-speed auto transmission.

The other upgrades that the concept will be getting includes a set of 17inch steel wheels wrapped in the 35inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires. It will also come fitted with a two inch Jeep Performance Parts suspension lift with Fox Racing Shocks. The Dana 44 axles will be fitted in the front and in the back.
