  1. 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Range / Mileage EPA Figures Published

    The combined city/hwy on gasoline is 23 on a 2 door with 2.0, 22 on a 4 door with 2.0, and 20 on the 4XE. The 2.0 sports don't get any hybrid system whatsoever. How did Jeep lose 2 mpg by adding a hybrid system? At worst it should be the same and since it should have full hybrid mode it should...
  2. 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Range / Mileage EPA Figures Published

    I would like to know how they managed to build a hybrid that gets worse mileage than the same engine without a hybrid.
  3. Stellantis said on Friday it will halt production at five North American plants next week because of the global microchip shortage.

    Pacifica also impacted. Anything connected to the Texas refineries is about to get really scarce too. I don't see how that doesn't impact Wrangler.
  4. Chip Shortage Impacting Production Real or Hype?

    I am pretty sure the manufacturers can shift their chip allotments around so Charger/Challenger and Pacificas are on their second extended shut down due to the chip shortage. I am not sure if Toledo is building at full capacity, but they have not shut down. There are multiple other raw material...
  5. Update: Reveal Coming Nov 17 @ 12PM ET! Production 392 Hemi V8 Jeep Wrangler Officially Teased!

    Is that $9500 more than a manual v6 or $9500 more than the auto v6 which is about $2500 more than the manual? Any idea if there will be required options like the 4xe has?
  6. Update: Reveal Coming Nov 17 @ 12PM ET! Production 392 Hemi V8 Jeep Wrangler Officially Teased!

    It won’t have any hybrid stuff in it. Where would they put it? I have not heard pricing yet but I think the 6.4 Durango starts at $60k and the 6.4 GC starts at $70k?
  7. 2021 Rubicon EcoDiesel EPA rated MPG drops (per window sticker)

    I rented a gladiator sport with 3.6 and got 25-26 mpg highway. I would expect 17-18 mpg on the same trip in our jlur with same engine and transmission.
  8. LED Light option; worth it?

    I had led lights on a 2018 Mustang. They were great on dry days. Just so so in rain and unsafe in fog. I would expect similar problems in snow plus the snow packing effect depending on snow type. They put out so much light that any weather conditions that cause light to reflect degrades my...
  9. Looks Like Ford Bronco is Serious About Taking on the Wrangler

    How many will order a 6.4 hemi Wrangler?
  10. My 2019 Rubi respond slowly to the start button

    I have noticed the same thing. I have also noticed the brake pedal is hard and I have to push it pretty hard to get the Jeep to crank. I think it is something to do with a brake interlock switch and the brake system building pressure or something.
  11. Diesel engine any good?

    Let me restate. There is not likely to be a tune that deletes egr, dpf, and urea which are three of the least reliable and most expensive parts of the engine to fix. The fuel system is also on that list but you cannot delete that. Fuel system replacement is probably more expensive than replacing...
  12. Diesel engine any good?

    EPA cracked down on the tuner companies. There is not likely to be a tune.
  13. Jeep.com Lease Calc?

    Dealers in the US can’t change residual. That comes from the leasing company.
  14. Looks Like Ford Bronco is Serious About Taking on the Wrangler

    And they will work as well or better that the trail rated irs Grand Cherokee or the ifs Tacoma. Ifs is better than a solid axle for some off road and worse for some. There will probably be a front locker available which will help.
  15. Looks Like Ford Bronco is Serious About Taking on the Wrangler

    Basically looks like the old Escape which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. We don’t know if it is rear or front drive from that pic do we?
  16. Looks Like Ford Bronco is Serious About Taking on the Wrangler

    Available in 2020. I agree Ford should have kept this secret a lot longer or launched at least a year earlier than planned. If it looks like the r&t rendering I am probably getting one even if it has ifs.
  17. Jeep.com Lease Calc?

    The online calculator uses the minimum money factor for that model which is pretty high on wranglers. The dealer can mark it up. I also noticed the Willys leases are cheaper online than the sport s. I assume residual is higher on the Willys but maybe that is a website error.
  18. 3.0D Jeep Diesel now available for ordering! Priced at $6k.

    So Jeep agrees with my 10% comment. All I will say about media tests is they need to see the mileage including a dpf regen. You can usually figure in about 3% additional cost for def for any diesel too.
  19. 3.0D Jeep Diesel now available for ordering! Priced at $6k.

    I think someone posted 26mpg in another thread for the 2.0. I would call bs on that but 23-24 would not shock me, and I doubt the diesel will be much better than that given that is all the previous gen could do in the truck before they got recalibrated and got worse. The 3.6 in the ram1500 truck...
