Last week, spy photos showed us that the 2011 Wrangler's exterior looks like it will get some fresh upgrades including a body-colored roof and sleeker, more aerodynamic-looking front bumpers. Now it looks like the Wrangler's interior is getting a desperately needed boost as well. Our friends at super-fan website Allpar possess a high quality interior spy pic that shows off what appears to be a big-time upgrade from the outgoing rock-climber's Playskool-inspired innards.

The first thing that catches our eyes is what looks like an abundance of high-quality soft touch dash and door insert materials, but we won't know for sure until we can get our hands on a sample. The outgoing Wrangler's steering wheel is a real dud with no redundant controls – even on the $34,000 Rubicon model, but that appears to be changing for 2011 as well. The new piece looks to have all the modern redundant controls, and we don't see the current model's awkward cruise control stalk either, and that's a very good thing. Finally, we see plenty of polished aluminum-look trim adorning the doors, dash and vents, giving the new Wrangler a more uplevel feel.

Click on the image on the right to head over to Allpar where you can see the uncropped image. We're thinking that while the photo doesn't exactly show a beautiful interior, it sure shows a clear, functional upgrade versus the 2010 model's cabin. Thanks to everyone for the tips!
