2018 Jeep Wrangler to offer optional 368 Horsepower 4-cylinder engine
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler which has been redesigned will be featuring an optional turbocharged 2.0-litre inline-four cylinder engine that produces 368 horsepower. All this information has been given in the documents filed by the Fiat Chrysler to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration(NHTSA).
The information about this update was first shared by Thetruthaboutcars.com that was later shared on various platforms including the Wrangler forum site, which posted a document that had a vehicle identification number(VIN) decoder.
A new inline-four cylinder variant of the model has been listed, though the VIN decoder hasn’t identified a diesel-powered Wrangler. This might come a bit later due to the issues with regulators over diesel emissions from FCA vehicles.
The next-generation of the Wrangler, which has been dubbed the JL will be beginning the production in the next several weeks, however, it’s not expected at the dealerships till the new year. The leaked document showcases that the redesigned Wrangler will have its current engine, the 285-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine. Both engines are being mated to a new Wrangler eight-speed automatic transmission for improving fuel economy.
