Jeep’s Upcoming 2.0-Liter Turbo Wrangler Supposedly Make 368 HP

by SpeedLux

When it pertains to the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, we have currently seen fan renderings. Now due to a supposed leak, we believe we understand exactly what the options list will look like. Now there might be a new leak, this time exposing how much power two engine options will make.

This info comes from a Jeep Wrangler online forum. In documents that Fiat Chrysler supposedly submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), we observed two particularly intriguing bits of details– the horsepower figures for the upcoming Wrangler’s V-6 and I-4 engines. The 285 hp we see noted for the 3.6-liter V-6 is no different than what you’ll discover in the existing Wrangler. But exactly what’s really surprising is what does it cost? Power it says the 2.0-liter turbo makes.

If this claim is correct, the turbocharged Wrangler will create 368 hp. That would make it almost as powerful as the Mercedes-AMG CLA45. And at 184 hp per liter, it would have a particular output that puts the Honda S2000 to embarrassment. Given that comparing turbocharged and naturally aspirated engines isn’t so reasonable, but it does demonstrate how far engine technology has come in just a couple of years.

Others are currently reporting that they have heard the claim is incorrect, FCA has not made any comments on this report. At this moment, we are doubtful. Even if the documents are the actual ones that were submitted to NHTSA, the horsepower figure for the 2.0-liter could still be a typo. However if it did end up holding true, we would’ve no problem with that.
