2020 Jeep WranglerThe Jeep Wrangler is one of the most capable off-road vehicles you can get. For the 2020 model year, Jeep is making a few changes and tweaks to make it even better. These include a new engine, a new Black & Tan package, and some shifting of available options and features between the trims. Here are some of the exciting 2020 Jeep Wrangler updates.

The Engine Lineup

The biggest news for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler is the addition of a new V-6 engine with Jeep’s eTorque system. The new V-6 will have the same mild hybrid system that the Ram 1500 has to help improve fuel economy. To start, this new engine will be an available option for the four-door Wrangler Sahara. The other trim levels will have the same gas-powered 3.6-liter V-6 as the standard engine with the option for a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder available as an option.

There is also some speculation about a new 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 for the latest Wrangler. Jeep has not confirmed any details about this powertrain, so we will have to wait to find out more.

The New Black & Tan Model

There is a new Wrangler trim available for the 2020 model year called the Black & Tan. This comes with an appearance package with black and tan trim elements and will be an option for both the two and four-door Wrangler models. Adding this option will get you a tan Sunrider soft top, Wizard Black for the instrument panel trim, and Heritage Tan cloth seats. Jeep will also discontinue the Moab model in the new model year.

The LED Lighting Group

The latest version of the Wrangler will offer the LED lighting group on the budget-friendly Sport S trim. This package adds LED reflector headlights, LED fog lights, and LED daytime running lights. It also comes with LED taillights.

Other Changes

Some of the other minor changes that Wrangler buyers will see in the 2020 model is the addition of automatic headlights to the Advanced Safety Group as long as you also get the 8.4-inch Uconnect system with navigation. Another fun change for the new Wrangler is the Sarge Green color will make a return, and the Dark Saddle interior color will no longer be an available option; Jeep replaces it with the Heritage Tan from the Black & Tan package.

What Stays The Same?

You won’t see many changes to the interior of the Jeep Wrangler for the 2020 model year. The entry-level trims will have a 5-inch touch screen and the Uconnect system with a 7-inch touch screen along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in the mid and higher-level trims. You can also get a 115-volt power outlet, satellite radio, and the even larger 8.4-inch touch screen depending on the model.

The big news for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler is the new engine lineup. The newly available V-6 with eTorque will help improve fuel economy, and there is the potential for a new 3.0-liter turbo diesel with extra power to arrive later in the model year.
