What Is the 2020 Jeep Wrangler?
The Wrangler is Jeep’s wildly popular 4×4. It’s available as a two-door or four-door SUV, the latter known as the Wrangler Unlimited. The two-door model has room for four people while the Unlimited version seats five.
A standard 285-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine pairs with a six-speed manual transmission; an eight-speed automatic is available. There’s also an optional 270-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that delivers 295 pounds-feet of torque; it pairs with the eight-speed automatic. A turbo-diesel 3.0-liter V-6 that works with an eight-speed automatic is newly available for the Wrangler Unlimited. Four-wheel drive is standard, and the Rubicon trim level features upgraded mechanicals for serious off-roading. Wrangler competitors include the Land Rover Defender, Toyota 4Runner and Jeep Grand Cherokee.
What’s New on the 2020 Jeep Wrangler?
The big news is the new turbo-diesel V-6 that joins the Wrangler Unlimited’s engine offerings. It makes 260 hp and a whopping 442 pounds-feet of torque. The Unlimited also offers versions of the gas V-6 and turbo four-cylinder with the eTorque mild-hybrid system.
What Features in the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Are Most Important?
The Wrangler is all about off-road driving, or at least the image of it. Even if you never put one tire onto a muddy surface, the Wrangler’s go-anywhere attitude is part of its appeal.
While it has a rugged image, available comfort features include heated front seats, a heated steering wheel and an 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. The Wrangler Unlimited offers more towing capability than the two-door variant, and the diesel V-6 should make the task easier even if it doesn’t increase the Unlimited’s 3,500-pound towing capacity.
2020 Jeep Wrangler Vs. 2020 Toyota 4Runner: How Do They Compare?
The Wrangler and 4Runner are legends among fans of off-roading, but there are some major differences between these two SUVs. To start, the Wrangler is available in two- and four-door form while the 4Runner is a four-door SUV. With its new engines, the Wrangler also offers more choices under the hood; in the 4Runner, the sole engine is a 270-hp V-6. The 4Runner can seat up to seven with an available third row, and it does offer rear-wheel-drive versions if you don’t plan on venturing off-road. In terms of ride and handling, these SUVs are fairly evenly matched but are less comfortable and don’t handle as well as similarly sized crossover SUVs.
Should I Buy the 2020 Jeep Wrangler?
The Wrangler is a back-to-basics SUV, but that doesn’t mean it comes cheaply. The base two-door model lacks creature comforts like power windows and power locks but still starts around $30,000. The Wrangler Unlimited is even pricier. For your money, you get a rugged 4×4 that’s fun to drive, has an iconic look and is extremely capable off-road. Better still, the latest Wrangler is better behaved than its predecessor on paved roads.
