Speculations have been revolving about the next-generation Jeep Wrangler. The JL version is stated to be a big leap forward in regards to customization and interchangeability, making it a prospective hit for offroaders worldwide. It’s reported to sport a diesel motor option for the first time in model history, and as per an anonymous Jalopnik tipper, it’ll have a lot more choices to choose from.
The report from Jalopnik declares that the Wrangler might have up to 6 engine options, blowing the current generation JK, which just offers one, out of the water. The list of prospective powerplants goes as follows:
* 2 versions of the 3.6 L Pentastar V6
* 3.0 L and 2.2 L diesel motor
* Two variations of the 2.0 L four cylinder.
All this would produce a plug-and-play Wrangler that’s suitable for everybody. We’ve seen Jeep testing diesel prototypes out in the open, and enthusiasts have long been asking for a combustion-ignition model; as it seems, they could even get 2.
The present 3.6 L Pentastar engine is a huge improvement over the previous 3.8 L V6 discovered in Wranglers of old, so an updated version of it could be even better.
Lastly, the 2.0 L 4 cylinder could assist to keep the entry cost for the model low in addition to offering increased fuel economy. Though we don’t know lots of specifics, we presume that it could be sourced from somewhere else in the Fiat Chrysler parts bin.
The possible leak also declares a list of body configurations for the upcoming Jeep. One of these are:
* Both two and four door designs
* Black Soft Leading
* Tan Soft Top
* Body Color Difficult Top
* And a Power-Retracting Top
Each of these would even more the idea of a have-it-your-way Jeep, so keep an eye out for these in the future.
FCA has refused talk about future models, however we will continue to post updates about these future models.
