What is the Standard Power train for 2020 Jeep Wrangler?
The Jeep Wrangler JL, now in its third model year, is a study in form and function. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon was crowned the 2019 SUV of the Year earlier this year, and the 2020 model year is sure to bring additional surprises. For starters, there will be some adjustments to the available powertrains, but don’t get your hopes up too soon. The projected third engine choice for the four-door vehicle, a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine rated at 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque, has yet to be announced. Rather than that, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler will offer hybrid and non-hybrid drivetrains.
What is the difference between a hybrid and a non-hybrid automobile?
For the 2018 and 2019 model years, the redesigned Jeep Wrangler JL offered two engine choices in all two- and four-door configurations. A 3.6-liter V6 24-valve engine tuned with variable valve timing and fitted with an Engine Stop-Start (ESS) system came standard on both models. With 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, the V6 engine is the ideal default for delivering sufficient power. It comes equipped with a six-speed manual transmission and achieves a highway fuel efficiency of 23 mpg and a city fuel economy of 17 mpg. Additionally, consumers can select for a class-exclusive eight-speed automatic transmission that can boost city fuel economy by 1 mpg when paired with the engine. At this point, you are paying for convenience.
A 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine was optional on all Jeep Wrangler JL models and grades. With a class-leading 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, buyers get a little more power from a smaller engine. Additionally, this powertrain configuration includes the eTorque mild-hybrid system, which has automatic stop/start, electric power assist, prolonged fuel shut-off, gearbox shift control, intelligent battery charging, and regenerative braking. Additionally, this engine choice includes a six-speed manual transmission, with an eight-speed automatic transmission available as an option on Moab trim, which is available only on the Jeep Wrangler JL four-door model.
What Is Different This Time Around?
If the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine is still on the radar for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler, the vehicle’s performance must improve. To provide consumers with more options, both of the aforementioned powertrains will be available in hybrid and non-hybrid configurations. This means that consumers can continue to order the 3.6-liter V6 engine with 24 valves or the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with eTorque or buyers can opt for the 3.6-liter V6 24-valve engine equipped with eTorque or the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine equipped sans eTorque. It’s unclear why someone would choose to forego the additional torque that eTorque provides, although some Jeepers may favor road excursions over off-roading. The 3.6-liter V6 engine receives a boost, which adventure enthusiasts will love.
Another minor adjustment to the powertrains is somewhat restrictive. Both engine options with eTorque are available on the four-door 2020 Jeep Wrangler Sahara grade. However, we’re not going to end on a downer, so here’s a positive. According to reports, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler JL lineup will gain another new trim option dubbed Black & Tan. This trim comes with an appearance package inspired by its namesake, with a black and brown color scheme. It will be offered in two- and four-door versions of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler.
Jeep Wrangler’s 2020 model year has new engine options
The Jeep Wrangler is a piece of machinery that will live in infamy. Built and developed during the war, its construction and athletic performance inspire thoughts of driving under duress, which explains why it has become a favourite SUV of adventure seekers and everyday commuters alike. For 2020, the Jeep Wrangler will be available with three different motor options, one of which will feature hybrid technology developed and debuted in 2018.

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler offers both conventional and hybrid engines
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler will be available with two engines: a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder engine producing 270 horsepower or a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine producing 285 horsepower. While both engines are available in nonhybrid form, both also have a mild hybrid system called eTorque. This system includes a 22-horsepower electric motor that can run independently of the stop-start system, but is typically used to jumpstart it.
Differences between the 3.6L and the 2.0L turbocharged engines
Two of the five engines available for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler include the new eTorque Mild Hybrid System: the 3.6L Pentastar V6 and the 2.0L Turbo. Under the hood, this eTorque system incorporates an electric motor, enabling a smoother stop-start transition, increased rock crawling capability, and seamless gear changes. Regardless of engine, the 3.6L Pentastar V6 comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, but drivers can upgrade to an eight-speed automatic transmission for an additional cost.
What is the standard engine for a Jeep Wrangler?
All eight 2020 Jeep Wrangler grade levels come equipped with the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine. On Sahara and Sahara Altitude trims, the 3.6L Pentastar V6 with eTorque is offered. The 2.0L Turbo engine is standard on Sport S, Black and Tan, Sport Altitude, Willys, Sahara, and Rubicon trim levels.’
Is the Jeep 2.0 turbo engine any good?
The 2.0 t is also an excellent engine, producing 270 horsepower at 5,250 rpm and a hefty 295 pound-feet of torque at 3,000 rpm, 35 pound-feet more than the V6. We tested it in two-wheel-drive mode without traction control and after several attempts with excessive wheel spin, we eventually got it from 0-60 in 6.1 seconds.
How many engines and transmission does a 2020 Jeep Wrangler have?
The Wrangler is available with two or four removable doors, five engine options, two transmissions, three different four-wheel-drive systems, and three different removable top combinations.
