Read Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel Reviews:

Looking for reviews of the new Wrangler EcoDiesel? Here’s what voices with weight in the auto industry are saying:

  • CNET: “Jeep is at long last offering a diesel engine in the Wrangler, a 3.0-liter V6 that, not surprisingly, provides a seemingly endless tsunami of torque, which further enhances this machine’s mountain goat-like climbing talents.”
  • J.D. Power: “With an EPA estimate of 22 mpg city/29 mpg highway/25 mpg combined, the EcoDiesel can deliver the best fuel economy and range ever offered in a Wrangler, 4-5 mpg more thrifty than the current 3.6-liter gas V6 in combined driving and 5-7 mpg less thirsty than that gas engine on the highway.”
  • Car + Driver: “The Jeep Wrangler is a lot like a Subway franchise. It’s a common sight at strip malls, regular malls, and gas stations. It comes in long and short sizes. And it offers a number of toppings, both soft and hard. With its various powertrains, door types, and streetable and/or off-road pretensions, the Wrangler has a combo for nearly any buyer. And now Jeep is introducing yet another flavor: the 2020 Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel, which borrows its turbo-diesel from the 2020 Ram 1500. And with it comes a promise of improved fuel economy. All the taste. Fewer calories.”
