The Jeep Wrangler has been one of the most popular vehicles of all time and enjoys a cult-like following amongst some drivers. This outpouring of love is the direct result of Jeep’s simple and reliable approach to the design and rugged utility-focused functionality.
All of that said, one of the biggest requests of Wrangler fans over the years has been the inclusion of a diesel engine, something the line has always lacked. Starting with the 2020 line-up, Wrangler fans prayers have been answered.
Borrowing a page (and a few components) from its cousin, the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, the new 2020 Jeep Wrangler will be offered with a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 engine. Sporting 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque, this latest powerplant will be available on all four-door models.
Powertrain availability varies depending on trim and desired specifications. A hybrid eTorque system is available, providing a 48-volt belt-starter generator for instant torque, although it’s only available on the Sahara trim. That said, you can pair it with either the 2.0-liter turbo-four or the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6, which is available with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic. Both the 2.0-liter turbo-four and the 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 are available exclusively with the eight-speed automatic transmission. The diesel is available on a variety of trims, including the Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon.
Aside from changes beneath the hood, the 2020 Wrangler sports a variety of available aesthetic and tech upgrades, including Black & Tan instrumentation and upholstery. A 7.0-inch touchscreen serves as a portal to a variety of on-board systems, including dual-zone climate control and an audio system.
The Wrangler shows no signs of flagging in its cult status and this latest addition to the stable is only likely to further the flames of Wrangler passion.
