As you could predict, Wrangler 4×4 SUV is getting a diesel engine. The EcoDiesel system is borrowed from the full-size Ram 1500 truck. A 3.0-liter V6 displacement is capable of producing 260 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. This is an optional engine for all trim levels. If you pick a 4×4 drive, then the engine distributes power through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The company unveiled the pricing for the new 2021 Jeep Wrangler Diesel. This off-road oriented vehicle is going to be available at $37,800 with the Sport trim level. It is $3,200 more than the Pentastar V6 mill. You will definitely look for a special upgrade through the Rubicon package. This is our recommendation for off-road adventures.
Mileage and Towing Capacity
The company promises top of the class fuel economy for the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Diesel. A 4-cylinder petrol engine returns 24 mpg combined, and the new drivetrain should be at the same level. On the other hand, diesel will be much more capable to tow. The capacity of a V6 engine is 3,500 pounds. The Wrangler EcoDiesel will easily beat that. However, precise numbers are unknown.
