The Jeep Wrangler finally gets diesel power, borrowing the 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 found in the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. In the Wrangler, the diesel engine makes 260 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque and will be available on four-door models. For 2020, the iconic off-road SUV also adds two special edition models that are now available to order. FCA’s excellent 2.0-liter turbo-four is now available on lower trims of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler as are LED headlights and foglights.
Jeep changed powertrain availability for the 2020 Wrangler. If you want the mild hybrid eTorque system, which uses a 48-volt belt-starter generator that smooths out an engine’s torque band, it’s only available on the Sahara trim. However, you can pair to either the 2.0-liter turbo-four or the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6. A six-speed manual transmission is standard with the base V-6 while an eight-speed automatic is optional. The 2.0-liter turbo-four and the late-available 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 come exclusively with the eight-speed automatic. Should you want diesel power, rest assured that it’s offered on the Sport, Sahara, and the off-road-oriented Rubicon.
2020 Jeep Wrangler Willys, Black & Tan Editions Add Rugged and Retro Flair
Of the two special edition models offered on the 2020 Jeep Wrangler, the Willys edition is the one aimed directly at off-road enthusiasts. It comes standard with a limited-slip differential, Rubicon rock rails and shocks, 32-inch Firestone all-terrain tires, heavy duty brakes, a two-speed transfer case with 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio, and a part-time four-wheel-drive system. Cosmetic changes include black 17-inch wheels with gray accents, all-weather floor mats, LED headlights and foglights, and a gloss black grille. The 2020 Jeep Wrangler Willys edition starts at a cool $35,235 for the standard two-door or $38,735 for the four-door.
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler Black & Tan features mainly cosmetic tweaks to give it a retro look including 17-inch Machine Granite wheels shod in all-terrain tires, side steps, a tan soft top, Wizard Black instrument panel, Heritage Tan cloth upholstery, and the Technology group, which adds a 7.0-inch touchscreen, dual-zone climate control, and a 7.0-inch instrument cluster display as standard. Like the Wrangler Willys edition, the Wrangler Black & Tan is available in two- and four-door configurations for $34,435 and $37,935, respectively.
