  1. All Electric Jeep Wrangler BEV Concept to be Revealed at Easter Jeep Safari!

    Wow everyone needs to calm down. In the end the BEV will be good enough for 70% or more of the consumer base. If it doesn't fit your lifestyle, life or tastes then don't buy it. Eventually ICE vehicles will come to an end and hopefully by then the battery tech or hydrogen fuel cell tech is good...
  2. All Electric Jeep Wrangler BEV Concept to be Revealed at Easter Jeep Safari!

    I never said this was everyone. But just because it doesn't fit your lifestyle now, does not mean it should not be a thing. But the charging infrastructure is better than most people realize. And with all the major manufacturers getting on board with EVs, they are and will continue to invest...
  3. All Electric Jeep Wrangler BEV Concept to be Revealed at Easter Jeep Safari!

    Yea the highest range version can get that now, and the plaid trims will be pushing 500-600 miles. But those are also $100k+ vehicles. I think a reasonably priced BEV Wrangler with 300~ miles of range will be great. My Current Rubicon gets less than 300 stock with the 3.6 v6. I can see the 4...
  4. All Electric Jeep Wrangler BEV Concept to be Revealed at Easter Jeep Safari!

    You realize you can charge this at your home over night right? You do not need a public charger unless you plan on driving more than your range in one day. So there will not likely be a line at gas/charge stations any time soon. By the time where you have a majority of drivers with EVs that are...
  5. All Electric Jeep Wrangler BEV Concept to be Revealed at Easter Jeep Safari!

    That 2 door looks like it has 3 separate battery packs, and is still using the transfer case and drive axels. This thing will be a toque monster. If the PHEV was able to "wheel for hours" on a 17kwh battery pack, this jeep might have 200-300 miles range and be able to be in low gear and low...
  6. Mattracks on a Wrangler

    Has anyone used the Mattrack or similar system on any of their Wranglers(TJ, JK, JL)? If so how does it handle non-snow off-roading? What kind of trails have you done? Considering the cost, how much of an advantage (or not) do they give you over large off-road tires? I know they can be driven on...
  7. What am I missing here... it sure seems to me like the upcoming hybrid is the ONLY Wrangler to get!

    No one here is in capable of handle what you are saying. I doubt anyone on here is what you would consider a snowflake. But I can tell you lack any real thought process since all you do is insult people and things around you who differ from you. It is possible to have a debate and discussion...
  8. What am I missing here... it sure seems to me like the upcoming hybrid is the ONLY Wrangler to get!

    All you do is give your opinion. If hybrids were garbage major high end car companies like Porsche, Mercedes, Audi, Ferrari or any person who knows more about cars than you would not be making them. You are the kind of person who thought coils are worse than leaf springs, there should not be any...
  9. 2019 Jeep Wrangler Ordering Shows 3.0L CRD Diesel V6 (w/Manual Transmission?) and 3.6L BSG Engines!

    I honestly would be floored if the BSG doesnt actually come out or is delayed for to long. Same with the 3.0, these engines would almost double the wranglers fleet mpg. I am just as hyped as you are, i was just reading another threadstarted by an engine builder. He was talking they will be...
  10. 2019 Jeep Wrangler Ordering Shows 3.0L CRD Diesel V6 (w/Manual Transmission?) and 3.6L BSG Engines!

    The 3.6 non bsg will go away when the next base engine comes out out, likely the straight 6 in development. But what i can see them doing is making the BSG the standard engine paired with 8spd auto on anything higher than the Sport S. I can see them keeping the base 3.6 as standard for the Sport...
  11. 2019 Jeep Wrangler Ordering Shows 3.0L CRD Diesel V6 (w/Manual Transmission?) and 3.6L BSG Engines!

    But it already did.... The Ram V6 is only BSG. And the closed order codes are not for the 3.6 BSG, its for the base v6 with an auto. This means they will likely go the way Ram did, and if you want a auto V6 it is BSG in anything more than a a sport. DONT LISTEN TO DEALERSHIPS they will tell...
  12. 2019 Jeep Wrangler Ordering Shows 3.0L CRD Diesel V6 (w/Manual Transmission?) and 3.6L BSG Engines!

    The problem the easter jeeps are that they proof of concepts that have many modifications that would not be done well in production vehicles that go through assembly lines. I know they have many 6spds that can handle the power and can fit with the proper modification. But are these modification...
  13. 2019 Jeep Wrangler Ordering Shows 3.0L CRD Diesel V6 (w/Manual Transmission?) and 3.6L BSG Engines!

    The 3.0 diesel will not get a manual. The 6spd cannot not handle it, and a RAM manual is too big. I am pretty sure FCA said if you want a manual you are stuck with 3.6 gas and that is it for manual/engine combos. So no 3.0/manual, no 2.0/manual, no 3.6 BSG/manual. Right now the only chance of...
  14. 2019 Jeep Wrangler Ordering Shows 3.0L CRD Diesel V6 (w/Manual Transmission?) and 3.6L BSG Engines!

    While I did not think about that as an option, I am not sure still. Why didnt they do the 2.0 BSG with the 6spd then? That would have been a very fun sporty Wrangler. It seems they only want to pair manuals with base non tech driven engines. But at some point I think these BSG/Mild hybrid...
  15. 2019 Jeep Wrangler Ordering Shows 3.0L CRD Diesel V6 (w/Manual Transmission?) and 3.6L BSG Engines!

    I think it is possible it could be although it would be almost a full year early. Lets looks at the options and the rumors. Right now we know that order code "22" has been used before for a diesel engine(3.0) and for a hemi(5.7). With that we have 3 options technically already, the 3.0...
