Since the new generation of Jeep Wrangler is still in the state of road test spy photos, the upcoming diesel power on this generation of models has been expected by off-road enthusiasts. Finally, after nearly a year of waiting, the Jeep Wrangler Diesel has finally been officially revealed.
In terms of power, the diesel version of the Wrangler is equipped with the same 3.0L turbocharged diesel engine as the Dodge Ram 1500, which is matched with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The eight-speed automatic is also retuned and retuned for quicker shift response. For off-road climbing, the low-speed and high-torque characteristics that the diesel engine can provide will be its biggest performance highlight.
In terms of chassis, the front and rear axles of the diesel version of the Wrangler use Dana44 axles with a reduction ratio of 3.73. The Rubicon will also feature a Rock-Trac transfer case with a 4:1 transfer ratio. Sport and Sahara trims come with a Command-Trac transfer case that provides full-time all-wheel drive with a reduced 2.72:1 split ratio.
In terms of the market, the entry-level diesel version of the Wrangler starts at $39,290, or about 276,000 yuan.
