“I recently drove the new Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel on the Rubicon Trail and can unquestionably attest to its incredible off-road capability,” Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand North America said in a press release. “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.”

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.
