New 2020 Jeep® Wrangler EcoDiesel: Ultimate Fuel Efficiency and Driving Range, With 442 lb.-ft. of Torque for Improved Performance

    • New EcoDiesel delivers best fuel efficiency and driving range ever in a Jeep® Wrangler
    • 442 lb.-ft. of torque improves driving performance on- and off-road
    • 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine available across Jeep Wrangler four-door lineup
    • Diesel-powered Wrangler offered for the first time in North America in response to overwhelming consumer demand


November 12, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The most capable SUV ever will soon be available with the most fuel-efficient and highest torque-rated Wrangler engine ever with the introduction of the new 2020 Jeep® Wrangler EcoDiesel. The expected fuel economy ratings will deliver the highest driving range on one tank of fuel ever for Wrangler.

Wrangler four-door models will offer 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 4x4 capability.


“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?’, and 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.”

All Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel models – Sport, Sahara and Rubicon – feature third-generation Dana 44 front and rear heavy-duty axles. Additionally, all Wrangler EcoDiesel models feature a 3.73 axle ratio. Two transfer cases are offered: the Rock-Trac two-speed transfer case with a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio on Rubicon models and the Command-Trac part-time two-speed transfer case with a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio on Sport and Sahara models.

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

All-new EcoDiesel engine
The third generation of the turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine delivers increased torque and horsepower, along with superb fuel economy and minimal levels of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) to meet the needs of Wrangler customers.

Several significant changes contribute to the new EcoDiesel’s improved dynamic and fuel economy performance:
  • A new-generation water-cooled turbocharger with variable geometry turbine (VGT) and low-friction bearing increases efficiency and responsiveness during transient conditions
  • Redesigned cylinder head intake ports with higher flow capability improve swirl and flow, increasing performance and fuel economy
  • The exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system design has been updated to a dual loop (low and high pressure) system. The added low-pressure circulation system draws gases after the diesel particulate filter, thus minimizing turbocharger energy losses, which increases fuel economy
  • The compression ratio has been optimized to 16.0:1 from 16.5:1 to improve fuel economy and reduce engine noise
  • High-pressure (29,000 psi/2,000 bar) direct-injection fuel injector nozzles were redesigned to match the newly designed and optimized combustion chamber, reducing fuel consumption
  • Lightweight aluminum alloy pistons were completely redesigned to include thinner rings and low-friction diamond-like carbon coating on the pin and compression piston ring to reduce parasitic losses
  • NVH has been improved by offsetting the piston pin 0.3 millimeters from the centerline
  • The lower portion of the two-piece oil sump uses a lightweight sandwiched polymer/metal material, which further reduces NVH
  • The dual vacuum pump system uses electric and a new mechanical low-friction pump with new blades that improve overall system efficiency
These upgrades build on the EcoDiesel V-6 engine’s previous success, the attributes and performance of which made it a winner of "Wards 10 Best Engines" for three consecutive years (2014, 2015, 2016).

The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 uses dual overhead camshafts (DOHC) with four valves per cylinder and a 60-degree angle between the cylinder banks. The block is cast with compacted graphite iron, which provides strength to dampen vibrations, but weighs less than gray cast iron. A compacted graphite iron bedplate adds rigidity to the block.

The EcoDiesel V-6 engine uses a forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods for strength and durability. The aluminum alloy pistons are cooled on the underside via oil jets. Heat-treated aluminum cylinder heads use individual bearing caps to reduce friction and minimize NVH. The chain-driven overhead camshafts employ roller-finger followers.

The diesel engine’s turbo Charge Air Cooler (CAC) is located at the base of the grille, in front of the radiator, to maximize cooler temperatures. The CAC uses the same mounting position as in the four-cylinder gasoline turbo engine, helping to reduce complexity.

A new 5.1-gallon diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank is located immediately behind the fuel tank with refill location next to the diesel fuel filler. DEF refills align with oil changes lasting up to 10,000 miles. Levels are monitored via a new DEF gauge in the front cluster.

The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine is produced at the FCA Cento facility in Ferrara, Italy.

2020 Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel Packs Big Torque

Nov 12, 2019



Jeep has answered the yellow-pump call, dropping a diesel engine into the popular Wrangler.


It’s a mild shock to think this is the first time the iconic Wrangler has had a diesel engine in North America. Fans of low-end torque will now have the option for one, starting as early as next month.


A modified version of FCA’s 3.0-liter V6 slots underhood for duty here, with ratings of 260 hp and a grunty 442 lb-ft of torque. What the low-revving engine lacks in horsepower—the gas-powered 2.0- and 3.6-liter engines make 270 and 285 hp, respectively—it more than makes up for with stump-pulling torque, with nearly 150 lb-ft more than the 2.0-liter turbo’s 295.


Sending that power to the ground is a different eight-speed automatic transmission than the rest of the lineup offers. Still a TorqueFlite unit, the 8HP75 is a more robust item capable of handling the extra torque. Jeep says it features over 40 shifting maps to maximize fuel economy and performance—on-road or off. Sorry, self-shifting fans: the six-speed manual isn’t an option.



On the plus side, Jeep is expecting high-20s for mpg, and a range of roughly 500 miles.

The new engine will be available exclusively with the four-door body style, which Jeep says makes up the majority of Wrangler sales. Trim levels include the Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon options. All three feature Dana 44 axles front and back and a 3.73 axle ratio.



Interested parties can expect to pay roughly $3,000 over the gas-powered V6 for the diesel model. The Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel should start showing up in dealers in December. Now we just wait for the diesel-powered Gladiator
