Jeep has revealed official images, we’ve spied the SUV testing without camouflage, we know what colors it will come in, what else can we learn about the 2018 Jeep Wrangler? Well, now we have its official fuel economy estimates for the V6-powered model.
FuelEconomy.gov posted the 2018 Wrangler’s EPA fuel economy estimates to its official website and we know the trusty V6 will return 17 mpg city, 23 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined with a manual transmission. With the eight-speed automatic hooked up, fuel economy estimates climb slightly to 18/23/20 mpg. Sadly, we still don’t have any official information on the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
We can, however, compare the V6’s fuel economy estimates to the outgoing JK Wrangler. The 2017 Wrangler returns 16/21/18 mpg with the manual, and 16/20/18 mpg with an archaic five-speed automatic. For those upgrading to a 2018 Wrangler with an automatic transmission, it’s certainly worth it.
