It would seem obvious that a vehicle like a Jeep would benefit from a diesel engine, especially for hauling, or off-road traveling. But, it took a while for a diesel engine to become available. Now that it’s here, the diesel provides a worthy alternative to the gasoline engine.

Jeep Wrangler Black and Tan?

Diesel Engine

The diesel engine in the Jeep Wrangler is the 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 from the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel model. The Wrangler’s diesel has 260 horsepower and 442 lb-feet of torque; the engine is to be available for four-door vehicles. An eight-speed automatic is the only transmission available with the diesel. And, the diesel is available on the Sahara, Sport, and the Rubicon.

Gasoline Engines

Gasoline engines for the 2020 Wrangler include a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, for lower trim level models. A 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 is also available. A six-speed manual transmission comes with the V-6, and an eight-speed automatic is paired with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.


The Willys edition of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler is specifically for off-road use. Its standard equipment includes a limited-slip differential, Rubicon rock rails and shocks, all-terrain tires, part-time four-wheel drive, and heavy-duty brakes. The Willys Wheeler package has the 285-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine. Besides the six-speed manual transmission, and five-speed automatic is available. Rubicon rock rails are there to protect rocker panels. The Willys has a ground clearance of 8.7 inches. Also, available half-framed doors improve off-road visibility.
