When Jeep announced they were going to be equipped the 2020 Wrangler with a diesel engine, just about everyone working at the Billion Auto Group showroom almost hit the roof with excitement. We knew that the new power plant was not going to be available right away. It appears the wait is finally over now that the automaker has finally published the performance specs for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler diesel engine. Our team of product experts has been very eager to get this information out to prospective buyers. Let’s take a look at what a new Wrangler with a diesel engine can offer.
Jeep Diesel Powertrain Basics
In order for a person interested in the diesel engine for the 2020 Wrangler to get the new engine, they will need to choose among four-door versions of the Sport, Sahara or Rubicon trim grades. The turbocharged 3.0-liter, V-6 EcoDiesel engine will make 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, Jeep has included a 5.1-gallon diesel exhaust fluid tank next to the fuel tank to make it easier to replenish the DEF when it’s time. For what it’s worth, the DEF will need to be refilled every 10,000 miles when the oil is changed.
A 2020 Wrangler with the new EcoDiesel engine will be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds. Finally, Jeep is reporting that the new EcoDiesel power plant will make the models that use it the most fuel-efficient versions of the Wrangler ever produced. Official fuel economy figures from the Environmental protection agency have not yet been produced, but the automaker says a 2020 Wrangler with the EcoDiesel engine will be able to travel more than 500 miles.
