2020 Jeep® Wrangler EcoDiesel offers the ultimate fuel efficiency and driving range for a Wrangler

The go-anywhere, do-anything Jeep® Wrangler can now go even further and do even more with the 2020 Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel model.

The new 2020 Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel will soon be available with the most fuel-efficient and highest torque-rated Wrangler engine ever with the introduction of the new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine.

“One of the most common questions consumers have asked us over the last few years has been, ‘Will you please offer a Jeep Wrangler diesel?’ I’m pleased to answer that with a resounding ‘Yes!,’” said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand – North America. “I recently drove the new Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel on the Rubicon Trail and can unquestionably attest to its incredible off-road capability. Combining that unmatched off-road capability with the vehicle’s fun-to-drive on-road performance, best-ever Wrangler fuel economy and incredible driving range underwrite the fact that our customers knew exactly what they were asking for.”

This is the first time a diesel-powered Wrangler has been offered in North America and it will be available in four-door EcoDiesel models of the Wrangler Sport, Sahara and Rubicon.

These Wranglers will be powered by 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.

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2019.
