I’ve never trusted a dealer or commercials to inform me but with all those sitting on lots due to not understanding and, now apparent, paranoia about reliability…I get why they started charging for an eTorque V6. lol Damn shame. I like our ‘21 eTorque 3.6 Rubicon and got a great deal on it. It would be even better with the 2.0 though. There were no 2020 Recon’s available close by.FCA totally bungled the marketing of eTorque. To this day there’s lots of confusion and misunderstanding as to what eTorque is or does. And don’t waste your time asking a Jeep dealer; they haven’t got a clue either.
That’s a far cry with all the time, money and effort Ford put behind marketing EcoBoost. Love it hate it, everyone has a pretty good idea what EcoBoost means.
The reason FCA pulled the 4-cyl eTorque motor is because those JLs sat unsold on dealer lots. Consumers weren’t willing to pay $1,000 extra for something they didn’t understand what it was. The 2.0T has been a lot more successful because everyone knows what a turbo motor is.
