The all-new 2018 Jeep® Wrangler has two available gasoline engines to power drivers and passengers on a number of adventures on- and off-road.
Both engines, the all-new 2.0L Turbo I-4 engine and the 3.6L Pentastar engine, offer unmatched capability.
The all-new 2.0L Turbo I-4 engine with eTorque technology is rated a best-in-class 270 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. Additionally, the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine’s torque output surpasses that of the V-6 engine offered in Wrangler.
While the new engine offers V-6 muscle, it also sips gas through fuel-saving functions, including auto-stop/start, electric power assist, extended fuel shutoff, transmission shift management, intelligent battery charging and regenerative braking. Direct injection boosts power while reducing emissions, and with the new 8-speed transmission, drivers will experience stronger takeoffs and smoother highway coasting.
In the addition to the new 2.0L Turbo I-4 engine, those considering a new Jeep Wrangler can choose the 3.6L Pentastar V-6 engine. This has been the main engine for the Jeep Wrangler since 2012 and, for the new Wrangler, it has received enhancements that include:
- Weight reductions that boost the engine’s performance
- Fuel-economy improvements of nearly 11% compared to the previous Pentastar generation
- The addition of Engine Stop/Start (ESS) technology offers 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine is also standard with a new six-speed manual Wrangler.
