Jeep Wrangler is by no mistake one of Jeep’s most trending models and will come with important refreshments which we are going to be addressed exhaustively in the following review. The Jeep Wrangler is also ranked within the compact crossovers and SUVs segment and is even ranked higher than the current Subaru Outback, but still has the Hyundai Tuscon, Ford Escape and Honda CR-V models in front of it.

Ever since the creation of the Jeep Wrangler model, the vehicle has always managed to  maintain its overall look despite of the alterations that have adorned it whenever a new model is released to the market. Up front, the new Jeep Wrangler 2016 will retain its seven-slit grille, angular LED headlights, and fog lights.

Also a refreshed bumper will now appear smoother than in its predecessor. Moreover, the windshield dimensions have suffered a reduction for purposes of making the car look assertive and bold. The vehicle’s designers also gave the vehicle a higher ground clearance which as they put it will ensure the truck has a smooth ride on both rough on-road and off-road terrain, and on water too.

2016 Jeep Wrangler Engine Specs

Beneath the hood of the new Jeep Wrangler 2016 will be a six-cylinder V6 engine which will have a displacement of 3.6Litres. The above engine will be able to generate up to 285 hp and 280 pounds feet of torque.

The engine will come paired to either a 5-speed transmission with an auto shift or just a 6-speed with a manual gearbox. The transmission will be a massive leap towards the future considering the previous version used only a one speed transmission mode.

Another engine worth noting will be the 3.6L engine that, according to insiders, will have a better fuel economy and will consume lesser fuel than its predecessor. With the new engine comes an increment of the fuel economy ratings by a staggering 20 percent which is by any terms impressive.

Despite the automobile’s assertion that the main alteration to the vehicle will be the reduction in weight, that won’t certainly be the most drastic as Jeep has made headlines by saying the new engine will be a diesel powered.

The Jeep Wrangler diesel 2016 will be powered by a turbocharged 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel engine. The turbocharged V6engine will be able to crank out 240 hp and about 420 pounds of torque. This power will be transmitted to an all-wheel drive system through the eight-speed automatic transmission system.

It is projected that the fuel economy ratings will be 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway at least for the V6 engine.
