The Jeep Wrangler (JL) is now entering the 2019 model year, and our friends at JLWranglerForums.com report that the Wrangler can now be ordered with a 3.0L turbo-diesel V6 or a 3.6L V6 with the eTorque mild-hybrid.
The JL is currently available with two engine options: a regular non-hybrid 3.6L V6 gas or a 2.0L turbocharged gas four-cylinder with eTorque. Naturally, the name of the game is increases fuel efficiency, but is having four engine options for the Wrangler feasible? Will the regular gas V6 go away in favor of the V6 eTorque? We will have to wait an see.
JLWrangleForums found the following new order guide codes: 22, 25, and 26. They report that the 26 code refers to the previously announced 3.0L turbo-diesel engine. It will only be available in the 4-door versions of the Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon. The 25 code is pointing to a 3.6L Belt Starter Generator (BSG), also known as eTorque mild-hybrid. This is according to the forum.
The code-22 has not yet been decoded, but it may point to a new trim level of the Wrangler. Jeep initially said that more engine options are coming to the Wrangle, including a plug-in hybrid. It may be too early to order a Wrangler with a plug-in, so 22 may indeed stand for something else.
