The most capable SUV ever will soon be available with the most fuel-efficient and highest torque-rated Wrangler engine ever with the introduction of the new 2020 Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel. The expected fuel economy ratings will deliver the highest driving range on one tank of fuel ever for Wrangler.
Wrangler 4-door models will offer the new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine, rated at 260 horsepower and 442 lb.-ft. of torque, with engine stop-start (ESS) technology standard. To handle greater torque loads, the EcoDiesel V-6 connects to a newly added TorqueFlite 8HP75 eight-speed automatic transmission, calibrated for low RPM shifts and the on- and off-road rigors of Jeep Wrangler duty. There are more than 40 individual shift maps to optimize shift points for fuel economy, performance and 4×4 capability.
All Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel models – Sport, Sahara and Rubicon – feature third-generation Dana 44 front and rear heavy-duty axles. Additionally, all Wrangler EcoDiesel models feature a 3.73 axle ratio. Two transfer cases are offered: the Rock-Trac two-speed transfer case with a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio on Rubicon models and the Command-Trac part-time two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio on Sport and Sahara models.
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel goes on sale in the fourth quarter of 2019.
