Pricing details for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler with the available 3.0-liter diesel V6 have surfaced thanks to a dealer order sheet published by the guys at the JL Wrangler Forums.
One member on the forums was recently informed by a local dealer that the 3.0-liter diesel is now available to order priced at $4000 and sold exclusively with a $2000 eight-speed automatic transmission. This represents a $3250 premium over the price of the 2020 Wrangler with the 3.6-liter Pentastar engine and automatic transmission.
FCA’s 3.0-liter V6 diesel used by the new Wrangler delivers 260 hp and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. It is offered exclusively with the four-door Unlimited model in all trim levels. A version of the same engine is also available with the Ram 1500 where it offers up the same horsepower and an additional 38 lb-ft (52 Nm) of torque.
Fuel economy numbers for the Wrangler diesel have been announced although it should sip less fuel than the 2.0-liter inline-four and 3.6-liter V6 also available which return 21 mpg (11.2 l/100 km) combined and 20 mpg (11.8 l/100 km) combined respectively. We’re also yet to receive towing numbers for the diesel.
A member on the forum says they were informed by a dealership that production of the Wrangler diesel will commence in November meaning the first deliveries should probably be made just before the end of the year.
Rumors about a diesel Wrangler first started circulating back in 2013 and customers will be pleased to know it has finally become a reality.
