2020 Jeep Wrangler

2020 Wrangler Photos
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler may be the most modern Wrangler ever, but it’s still unique and instantly recognizable. The current, JL-generation Wrangler, introduced two years ago, is a giant leap forward in refinement, technology, and ease of use. Yet it maintains the model’s legendary off-road capability and awesome throwback features, including the removable roof and doors, and the fold-down windshield. The Wrangler continues to be offered in classic two-door and 22-inch-longer four-door (Unlimited) body styles. This is absolutely a special-purpose vehicle, and is highly compromised as a daily driver. Despite the JL’s improvements, the Wrangler is still a noisy, stiff-riding, vague-steering machine. It’s hard to climb into, and the interior is cramped — the two-door Wrangler’s rear seat and cargo hold are particularly small. The cabin is full of neat design features, however, and the available Uconnect infotainment system is first-rate.

Two new special models are offered for 2020. The Willys Edition gets a limited-slip rear differential, rock rails, and 32-inch mud-terrain tires to go with its unique badging and blacked out grille. The Black and Tan Edition features black paint paired with a tan roof, black badging, and a special interior with tan seats. 2020 also sees the arrival of a 3.0-liter diesel V6, for the four-door only, with 260 horsepower and 422 lb-ft of torque married to an eight-speed automatic.

Trim levels encompass Sport, Sport S, Black and Tan, Sport Altitude, Willys, Sahara, Rubicon, and Sahara Altitude (the Saharas are four-doors only). The Sports are the more affordable, mainstream versions, the Saharas are the fancy models, while the Rubicon (and to a lesser extent the Willys) emphasizes off-road capability. Your choice among these comes down to your budget first and foremost, and then your style preference and just how much you intend to venture off road. If the answer to that is “not much,” going for the Rubicon probably isn’t worth the extra cost.

A 3.6-liter V6 (285 horsepower, 260 lb-ft) is standard on all 2020 Wrangler models, and can be paired with a six-speed stick or the automatic. Besides the diesel, the other optional engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (270 hp, 295 lb-ft), offered exclusively with the automatic in either body style. The four-cylinder is a tough sell given the price premium and the modest fuel-economy gains: 22 mpg city, 24 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined for the two-door versus 18/23/20 mpg for the two-door V6 (that equates to an estimated $250 per year in average fuel costs). The 2.0L and the 3.6L can be combined with an eTorque mild hybrid system in the Sahara only, but don’t expect a significant fuel-economy bump. Towing capacity is 3,500 pounds no matter what engine is selected. All models come standard with four-wheel drive, and buyers choose among three different transfer cases.
