While I was at work today I noticed a couple JL’s being dropped off by the truck so I figured I’d go take a look at them since I always do. But I was shocked when I saw we received one with the 2.0 turbo...took it on a drive and was surprised by it. Definitely has some torque and turbo whine. Hopefully now people’s orders will start being delivered

Judging from the amount of dust under the hood, I wonder what it's production date was.

Thank you for sharing those first impressions! :rock:
Please do tell us more... Nice accelerations? How does it compare to a 3.6?

We’re starved for real-life reviews...
:please: :please: :please:

Never mind, from looking at the tire, I can tell it's not a Rubi.
It might be Jeep pushing out most of the 2.0s in Sahara at first, all of the ones incoming to my dealer are at least.

I will not be participating in this forum as of 8/31/2018. It's been a fun ride, but it's time to move on. Take care. - Dustin

Let me guess, Jeep made this color "turbo gray"

HAHAHAHAAHA!!!!! I kid, I kid....This was a joke carried over from the gray bitching in another post from the other day. If you search "50 shades of gray" on this site, you will see the post.

The cover over the 12V battery is on every JL isn't it? Mine has it.

And the dirt in that engine compartment looks like mine with 4,000+ miles on it. Are you sure this is a new Jeep?

I think the battery cover is on all FCA Vehicles, as my Ram had it too.

LOL....man I would never buy a first gen turbo from jeep. It just screams "headache" to me. If they can't get the cruise control right (which has been around for years) corrected, and I heard about the "service shifter soon" that is popping up, there is no way I would be a guppy for a 2.0 turbo....no way, no how.

I mean think about it.... WTF would you need a turbo in a non aero-dynamic vehicle????????? lol

(and Yes I already know that semi trucks have turbo's in theirs, but used for a completely different reason)
