Today we will be reviewing the Jeep Eco-Diesel Wrangler.
As far as design goes, you can't really tell a difference between the Jeep Wrangler Eco-Diesel and a regular 2020 Jeep Wrangler. If you put them side by side you really couldn't tell at all. Same with the interior of the Jeep Eco-Diesel. The only differences you'll notice are the sound, mileage, and price tag which we will get to shortly. As far as appearance goes though, you really are just getting a 2020 Jeep Wrangler.
This Jeep Eco-Diesel has a 3 liter V6. It is very very quiet for a diesel, and though you can tell that it is a diesel by the sound, it is not obnoxious. Jeep put in a lot of work to make it as quiet as possible. When you get up to higher speeds it will have a slight rattle from the diesel. It has good acceleration when you are in motion but when you go from a dead stop to flooring it, there will be a lag. This is not ideal for off-roading or rock climbing if you need to quickly get over a rock or have an unforeseen ledge or hill. It has really good pickup, power, and acceleration. The Jeep Eco-Diesel claims to do 29 mpg on the highway and 22 on city roads. It has the same engine as the Ram 1500 Diesel by VM Motori which has gotten great reviews. This Eco-Diesel has the new diesel emissions with a urea tank and Jeep claims that you can go 10,000 miles before refilling the urea tank. It has a very good fuel economy but is it worth it?
This Jeep Eco-Diesel is around $4,000 more across the board than a regular gas Jeep Wrangler coming in somewhere around $49,000. It doesn't come with a manual option so for 8-speed transmission that will cost you another $2,000, which would make it $6,000 more than a gas Jeep Wrangler. On top of that Diesel costs more at the pump than gas, though it does have better mileage. You would have to drive it a lot in order to make up for that price difference. In our opinion, we would just recommend getting a regular gasser. We don't quite see enough benefit for the surge in price.
