The all-new Jeep Wrangler will be available not only with a fuel-saving diesel engine, but also an electrified plug-in hybrid version.
Unveiled at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, the latest Wrangler will offer a new 3.0L diesel engine in 2019 followed by a plug-in hybrid in 2020, both joining the existing 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder and 3.6L V6 engines to give buyers four distinct powertrains to choose from.
Jeep hasn’t released any details about the Wrangler Plug-in hybrid, but it will likely use a version of the powertrain used in the Chrysler Pacifica plug-in hybrid.
The Pacifica plug-in hybrid is powered by a 3.6L V6 paired with an electric motor, delivering an electric driving range of 33 miles.
A Wrangler plug-in is definitely a departure for the tried and true Wrangler brand identity, but it was only a matter of time before the iconic Jeep got with the times. We’ll have to wait and see how fans respond to an electric wrangler.
