2020 Wrangler EcoDiesel Revealed

Brought to You by Legay Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

The most capable SUV on the market is none other than the Jeep Wrangler, ready to take on adventures no matter the terrain. Things are only getting better for the 2020 model year! We are so incredibly excited about the addition of an EcoDiesel engine, deploying the highest driving range on one full gas tank in the history of the Wrangler! We know that so many of you have been waiting for this day for a very long time and it is finally here, so if you are ready to learn more about this brand new engine option, keep reading!

Can you tell us more about the engine?

Absolutely! Every four-dour Wrangler Unlimited model will offer the brand new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine. This beast pumps out 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque and comes with engine start/stop technology to help further improve fuel economy. Jeep mates this engine to a TorqueFlite 8HP75 8-speed automatic transmission. Jeep has calibrated this transmission for LOW RPM shifts and both on- and off-roading adventures the Wrangler is capable of. With more than 40 individual shift maps, 4x4 capability, performance, and capability are optimized. This engine also utilizes dual overhead camshafts with four valves per cylinder and a 60-degree angle between the cylinder banks. Rather than a heavy gray cast iron block, this block is cast with compacted graphite iron for additional strength and rigidity.

What kind of changes help the EcoDiesel's performance and fuel economy?

Jeep makes a few significant changes to the EcoDiesel engine in order to deliver both increased horsepower and torque as well as stellar fuel economy and minimal NVH. One of the most notable changes is the new-generation water-cooled turbocharger with low-friction bearing and variable geometry turbine. This helps to increase responsiveness and efficiency during transient conditions. Another major change are the redesigned cylinder head intake ports that increase fuel economy and performance with a higher flow capability that improves swirl and flow.

How does this engine impact off-roading?

The EcoDiesel is the most powerful engine available for the Wrangler and it is ready to tackle every terrain. Whether you are traversing steep inclines or climbing over rocks, the low range, low gear power of this engine comes in handy. With the Rubicon's outstanding off-roading features like the 11-inch ground clearance and 33-inch off-roading tires, this engine is ready to take on the biggest mountains and cross rivers with ease!
