While we are waiting for the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler to show itself, we are gathering more and more interesting information about this SUV. Another interesting gossip is related to the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel.
Of all, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel should offer better mpg rating than its petrol sibling. We will know more when the standard model comes out, and it should happen by the end of this year.
Under the hood of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will be a 3.0-liter V-6 powertrain. That will make Wrangler Diesel a true off-road crossover, ready to take over all obstacles and terrain challenges.
The car, due on American roads first at the start of next year, is the first Wrangler to get a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that uses a twin-scroll turbocharger and new eTorque technology.
This mild hybrid system outputs a maximum of 270bhp and 295lb ft of torque, while also enabling significant improvements to efficiency. Stop/start technology is included, and the engine can switch off when the car is coasting.
The Wrangler is also offered with a 3.6-litre petrol engine with 285bhp and 260lb ft of torque, while a 3.0-litre diesel that produces 260bhp and 442lb ft will be added to the range from 2019. Both units use start/stop technology.
As standard, the Wrangler sends torque through a six-speed manual gearbox, but an eight-speed automatic is also on offer. Drive is channeled to all four wheels, with low-ratio 4:1 locking differentials available
Transmission and Towing Capacity
The automatic gearbox is mated to both petrol and diesel engines. It is an eight-speed transmission, whose alternative is going to be a six-speed manual. Diesel SUV is going to mate it to a 3.0-liter mill to provide smooth shifting.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will offer better-towing capacity than its siblings. The diesel version will probably go up to 5,000 pounds.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will carry the same chassis as the petrol model. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler will use the same.
New bumpers and headlights will make this crossover stylish and elegant. Chrome radiator grille is something we can’t imagine Wrangler without it.
High-tech features brought by the previous edition of Wrangler will get updates. Interior receives a praise, so the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel won’t change too much there.
We will get a Command-Trac system. The base model is not so rich with its offer, with air conditioning, touchscreen display, and Apple CarPlay missing. Well, these features are available at higher trims.
The new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel is not going to exceed $31,000 mark for the base unit. The 2019 Wrangler Diesel becomes the premium SUV.
Completely redesigned for 2018, the 2019 Wrangler (JL) will add a diesel-engine option and may also receive a new special-edition model. A Wrangler pickup will probably join the lineup in the next couple years.
The Wrangler is a purpose-built, off-road body-on-frame SUV available in two- and four-door body styles. Price wise, the Wrangler slots above the Renegade, Compass, and Cherokee and below the Grand Cherokee.
The four trim levels for the 2018 Wrangler (Sport, Sport S, Rubicon, and Sahara) will likely carry over and could be joined by new trims and special-edition models.
The Sports model should continue as the base model and for 2018 comes standard with 17-inch black steel wheels, a Command-Trac four-wheel-drive system with a two-speed transfer case, a 5.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with Bluetooth, a zipperless Sunrider soft top, a rearview camera, tow hooks, and skid plates. The more luxurious Sahara model will keep its 18-inch wheels, side steps, a 7.0-inch infotainment system touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 7.0-inch instrument cluster display, and dual-zone climate control. The rugged Rubicon will continue with large off-road tires, front and rear locking Dana 44 axles, the Rock-Trac four-wheel drive system, an electronic disconnecting front sway bar, and off-road rock rails.
