Unless they are just testing the new drivetrains, it doesn't look like they changed anything.

Rear axle looks like it might have a wishbone upper control arm.

Gas tank looks really low. If I'm not mistaken, the article says there is no rear track bar, but I believe that to be false. First pic shows the frame side track bar mount. Can't see the axle side, likely mounts higher on the driver side of the axle. Second pic shows what appears to be spacers on one of the skids, not sure if those are on the previous JK's. A turbo diesel would be nice.
Just my observations, continue on.

Looks like the track bar bracket is higher (change in roll center geometry ) the TB is hidden behind the tank.

I also noticed the shock angle, looks to be less extreme. These two things should better handling.

Definitely a new rear track bar bracket. Those are definitely not the new models but might have some new features they are testing in them.

There are a lot of rumors floating around for sure.
