I don't mind my 2.0. I have no issues passing people who cruise in the passing lane on the highway! you all know who you are. . . lol

seriously though. I have had no issues merging or speeding up or getting out of the way of someone on the road if need be. it has the needed pep for my daily driving.

Gecko still won't come up on my laptop when building a 2-door Willys Sport. Does the same thing on mobile using either Chrome or Firefox. Works fine when building 4-door.

I have no zero complaints with the 2.0 for highway driving but when the going gets actually technical is where my like for the turbo 4 banger totally ends. FCA either needs a dual turbo 2.0 or their tuning totally sucks. Nothing like trying to finesse a boulder with turbo lag and then at the last moment having the turbo kick in.

Gecko appears on my iPad, both in 2 and 4 door, Sport, Willys and Rubicon.

It seems a number of people on this forum are concerned about the 2.0? I just got back from a trip to Colorado and that engine was awesome. Handled the mountain roads with ease and I love the manual feature for downhill, easier on the brakes to let the engine control speed. It handled the off-road trails like Cinnamon Pass, Engineer Pass, California Gultch, Picayune and Placer Gultch really well. Enjoy your Jeep shopping.
Same here, I came from a 2 door Rubicon with 3:73’s and V6 to a 4 door JLUR with 4:10’s and 2.0, a totally different feel in acceleration in a good way and better mileage. There is just a feel of less effort to get to speed.

Not according to what I’ve read.

The built-in generator supposedly replaces both the alternator and the auxiliary battery.

Can an eTorque owner who has peeked under the hood please chime in?
eTorque has two batteries. A 12V and 48V battery plus cooling lines and coolant.

Be careful of what you ask for. A few early 2018s actually DID come with different color fenders and roof panels. There are pictures on this forum. How they made it pass final QC and were delivered to the dealers is the question?

I remember that, though in this case you couldn’t complain as it was depicted accurately. 🤣

I drove from eastern Maryland to Southern California in my 2.0. Nothing but good reviews for the 2.0 in my experience.
