jeeps getting gayer

What the next Wrangler must do is improve on the current model's 18 mpg combined rating (17 mpg city, 21 mpg highway). Currently, the Wrangler uses a 3.6-liter V-6, but Manley says there will be "continued improvements" to the company's powertrains. A diesel model may be considered, if the take-up of current Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel sales doubles to 16 percent of total GC sales. The next Wrangler will sit on its own platform though, rather than an adaptation of one of the firm's more road-biased platforms—the Jeep boss says he wants to "push the benchmark even further"

I really want a Cummins 4 banger in my JK. But the tiny fuel tank doesn't help the fuel economy. Mine averages 13L/100 same as my F150 does with a 120L fuel tank.

Haha yup and my Derdge gets 30 MPG because it has a Cummins in it.


Oh yeah, that's WITH towing 18,502lbs. Obligatory tow mirrors flipped out too.
