Fuel Economy Figures for 2.0L Jeep Wrangler JL Released

Fuel Economy Figures for 2.0L Jeep Wrangler JL Released

May 08, 2018

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has rated the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

Paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the four-cylinder engine returns 23 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, netting a 24-mpg combined rating. The turbocharged mill, however, requires premium gasoline, so the EPA estimates its annual fuel cost at $2,100. Opting for the Unlimited model decreases fuel economy to 22 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, resulting in a 23-mpg combined rating. Estimated annual fuel cost for the 2.0-liter Unlimited model is $2,300.

Thatís compared to the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine, which returns 18 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway (20 mpg combined) when paired to the eight-speed automatic transmission. Although it requires regular gasoline, EPA estimates annual fuel cost for the V6 to be $2,150. Fuel economy is the same on the Unlimited model with the automatic transmission.

There is also a manual six-speed transmission available on the V6 engine, rated at 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway for a 20-mpg combined rating. But unlike the automatic model, the Unlimited equipped with the manual transmission gets slightly worse highway fuel economy at 23 mpg. That results in a 19-mpg combined rating for the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 3.6-liter V6 with a manual six-speed transmission.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine costs $1,000 additional, but can only be paired to the automatic transmission, which is $2,000. So compared to the manual-equipped V6 Wrangler, it costs $3,000 more. The turbo-four engine offers 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, while the Pentastar V6 provides 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.
