If cost is not a concern to you, I would recommend getting the eTorque because going to another state just got get a 2020 is not worth it in my opinion. I have a 3.6 without eTorque and absolutely love it. Those on this forum who have the 3.6 with eTorque like it even more. The eTorque is supposed to go better on your battery and make the Start/Stop process smoother. I would recommend it if you have $1500 to spare. If not, then I would highly recommend the Turbo 4 also (Without eTorque). That engine has also received rather rave reviews. I did not get the Turbo 4 because back when I ordered my Jeep (July 2019), not much data was out there to see how reliable is the Turbo 4. Now 18 months after my custom order (and 36 months after the release of the 4 cylinder motor), the Turbo 4 seems to be a good motor as there have been no major recalls or complaints.Hey everyone, new to the forum as I’m interested in trading in my JK for a JL .i was hoping you all can give me some advice.
After doing some research I saw that in the 2021’s if you want the 3.6 w/ an auto etorque is mandatory. I have no experience with etorque but to me it just looks like something else that will break eventually and that I can’t fix.
Should I seek out a new 2020 left over on a lot somewhere and avoid the etorque or should I not be so worried?
The only new 2020 2 door rubis are a few states away, would it be worth it to travel to avoid the etorque or should I just get a 2021 in my area and call it a day? Thanks for any help in advance
Of course if you can find a 2020 Pentastar without eTorque in your local area, jump on it. That will be the best solution in your case.
