The new generation of the famous SUV has been introduced recently and it came with a lot of novelties. However, that doesn’t mean that there is nothing left for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler. According to the latest reports, the company will introduce a new, hybrid powertrain. Though the exact details are still unknown, there is a lot of expectations for this models. Besides new powertrain, we expect to see few minimal updates, in terms of new colors, standard features etc.
The recent redesign has brought a lot of novelties, so it is hard to expect some bigger changes for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler. This SUV sticks to its roots, so the styling remains pretty much the same. Take a quick look and you will hardly notice some bigger changes. There are some tweaks to the front bumper, as well as a new turn signals position, fender-mounted. The biggest changes actually came under the skin. There is a completely new architecture, which utilizes a lot of aluminum, which makes the new generation lighter by more than 200 pounds. Also, there is a new roof design, which provides much quicker and easier mounting. The next year should bring an electrified version, which will probably gain some additional weight, because of the battery pack and other components of a hybrid system.
Don’t expect bigger changes in this aspect either. Of course, the new hybrid version will probably occupy some interior and cargo room, but the base interior design is about to remain the same. This would mean the same layout that sticks to the roots, but also adds plenty of novelties. One of the best things about the 2020 Jeep Wrangler will be its waterproof cabin, which will lovers of this exciting SUV definitely appreciate a lot. Interestingly, window surfaces are bigger now, so you can count on better visibility as well. Thanks to the new platform that features a longer wheelbase, you can count on more legroom as well. However, it is still far away from one of its biggest competitors Toyota 4Runner, in this aspect.
The biggest novelty for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler should be a new hybrid powertrain. According to the latest reports, we should see the same powertrain as in 2020 Chrysler Pacifica. It will utilize the same combination of a V6 gasoline engine and electric motor, providing superior fuel economy. On the other side, the rest of the lineup should keep in the same way. There is a familiar V6 Pentastar, which is good for about 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Finally, you can find rumors about the diesel version, which will use the same V6 that you can find under the hood of Grand Cherokee.
