The Jeep Wrangler Will go Hybrid in 2020

The Jeep Wrangler has a long and deserved reputation for being one of the most impressively rugged vehicles on the road. Built using decades-old design elements, the Wrangler delivers what many consider to be the premiere vehicle for off-roading and harsh conditions. Come the year 2020, the Wrangler may be adding some other tricks up its sleeves.

Jeep, as recently reported by CNET, has confirmed that it's in the process of designing a hybrid version of the Jeep Wrangler, with the intention of producing it for release in the year 2020. This new hybrid version is aimed at giving the Wrangler more economical and environmentally friendly engine options. Jeep will also be releasing another fuel friendly powertrain, the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel, in 2019.

These options should provide some welcome reprieve for drivers who enjoy the rugged nature of the Wrangler but want more options than its iconic 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. The Pentastar V6 will, of course, remain an option for those drivers who prefer power of efficiency.

While Jeep has yet to reveal many specifics about the new hybrid engine option, sources have said that it will draw on the hybrid engine utilized by the current Chrysler Pacifica. The hybrid model of that vehicle can go a full 33 miles using its battery alone.

If you just can't wait until 2020 for a Jeep Wrangler, you'll be happy to learn that the current model is available in stock at Razzari Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Merced, CA. We also have a wide selection other new Jeep vehicles, if you'd be interested in seeing what other SUVs the Jeep brand currently has on the market.
