Just one year after the redesign of its legendary SUV, the Jeep 2019 adds a new engine option for the Wrangler.

It is a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged with electric support, meaning it is a light-hybrid vehicle.

Creating slightly less horsepower and somewhat higher torque, this engine offers the same acceleration and performance as the standard 3.6-litre V6 engine, combined with improved fuel economy. Jeep calls this mild-hybrid technology e-torque.

Based on JD Power data, fuel economy is what Wrangler owners are least satisfied with when they get into their Jeep. Deliberately, a brand new holiday rental featured this new e-torque engine under the hood, allowing for real-world testing of the light-hybrid Wrangler Turbo.
