Jeep doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon when it comes to its rich SUV lineup. The carmaker already announced the plans for the future, which includes new SUVs and new hybrid vehicles. Some of the current SUVs will get numerous updates. The upcoming 2020 Jeep Wrangler Diesel is one fine example. The current model offers two engine choices and now the diesel version will happen as well. The 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine will be in the offer. This diesel engine will be available on the four-door Unlimited Sport, Rubicon, and Sahara model.
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will also get further exterior and interior updates. The exterior is astonishing and easy to recognize thanks to its tradition and popularity. Interior is quite modern and the 2020 model will get even more changes. The off-road performances are amazing and now with the diesel powertrain, off-road adventures will be even better

2020 Jeep Wrangler Diesel Interior Changes
The interior of the all-new 2020 Jeep Wrangler Diesel won’t get so many upgrades as the exterior. That means the changes from the inside are minor. However, the cabin already looks modern and feels pleasant. The newest infotainment system is in the offer, along with the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The materials from the inside are upscale and the layout of buttons is simple.
Body-color dashboard represents one of the modern touches in the cabin, just like the rounded shape of the vents. The touchscreen will remain which is another good thing. The customers feedback in the past about the interior wasn’t that good. Some would say the interior is “wild” and that feeling will be gone in 2020. The upper trims are offering some premium amenities and if you want luxury, this is the only way to get it.
2020 Jeep Wrangler Diesel Powertrain
The current Wrangler offers two gasoline engines. Those two engines will remain and the 2.0-liter four-cylinder drivetrain will be standard once again. It can produce up to 268 horses and 295 lb-ft of torque.
The most popular choice is the optional 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar that returns 285 HP and 260 lb-ft of twists. However, the diesel powertrain will finally happen. The 2020 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will use the 3.0-liter V6 engine for the first time. The EcoDiesel unit is capable of producing 265 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of twists.
The off-roading experience will be even better now and Jeep will also introduce new driving modes. That means the driver can set the settings in order to adapt to different weather and road conditions. Climbing is easier thanks to the high number of torque and longer wheelbase will improve stability.
If you want the perfect off-road SUV, Wrangler Diesel is the answer you are looking for. On the other hand, if you prefer the casual ride and you are a fan of fuel economy, Wrangler Hybrid will also arrive in the near future.
