What about the extra emissions caused by the manufacture of starter motors that wear out prematurely because of ESS? This seems like one of those ideas that really is not a good idea and will likely be dropped some time in the near future.
I have a 2020 Sahara. I didn't need the off road equipment that the Rubicon has. I like the Rubicon hood but hate the huge stickers on it with the name. The Rubi did not come with saddle leather interior, which is what I wanted.
This vehicle is very capable off road. I have had no problems...
I would agree with that. When I bought my Sahara I didn't even know it was a hybrid! I thought it was a turbo 4. It wasn't until I got the vehicle home and started poking around that I realized what I have. With that said I am happy with it.
I recently purchased a 2020 Unlimited Sahara. We wanted a white Wrangler with the saddle leather interior. As I recall when looking through the options on the various models you could not get saddle leather except in the Sahara. We did not want a Rubicon as we did not need all of the off-road...
When I bought my Sahara Unlimited in April they were offering Employee pricing. This ended up being about 20% off of sticker. It doesn't look like Employee Pricing is still being offered but discounts are similar on their web site.
We just bought a new 2020 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara with the 2.0 turbo hybrid and 8 speed transmission. I have been very impressed with it. Good acceleration and fuel economy. We only have about 500 miles on it and I am already seeing 21 mpg in all around driving, including some 4 wheeling.
