2016 Jeep Wrangler
Jeep Wrangler is definitely one of the most iconic SUVs around. It was originally launched in 1986 as direct descendant of the World War II Willys MB, which was present for several decades. So far, there are three generations of this off-roader and it will stay in that way at least until 2016. Although 2016 Wrangler won’t be redesigned, it will undergo many improvements compared to current model. Don’t be fooled by its look, it will be much different, because it will get new engine, new suspension, it will be much lighter etc.
2016 Jeep Wrangler redesign
As we already said, 2016 Jeep Wrangler might look same as present model, but there will be many changes. According to some reliable sources, this SUV is going to a diet. Thanks to many aluminum and other lightweight materials that will be used in 2016 Wranglers body, total weight will be much decreased. In order to save even more weight, new model will also get new suspension. Many Wrangler fans will probably be very disappointment because well-known and praised rugged solid axles will be sacrificed in the name of weight savings. The 2016 Jeep Wrangler will use air suspension system which should affect on better fuel economy. On the other side, company promises that new Wrangler will keep its off-road capabilities.
2016 Jeep Wrangler’s new engine
There is one big novelty under the hood. It is confirmed that 2016 Jeep Wrangler will be available in diesel variant. It will be the same engine that is used for new Grand Cherokee. That is 3.0 liter EcoDiesel which outputs 240 horses and impressive 420 lb-ft of max torque. With its wide rpm range, we expect excellent performances from this model. Not only that, with diesel engine Wrangler will make a big step forward when it is about fuel economy. Compared to 19 mpg, 30 mpg looks like big improvement. However, there is also a bad side about this diesel variant – price. It seems that 2016 Wrangler will cost around 7.000 dollars more than petrol variant, so there will be a big question – does this improvement worth so much?
2016 Jeep Wrangler release date
It is expected that 2016 Jeep Wrangler will be available in the spring of 2015.
