Jeep Wrangler SUVs will remain without diesel from November. The Biodiesel V6 3.0 unit from VM Motori will soon disappear from the range, and those who want to get an economical Wrangler will have to overpay for a chargeable hybrid with a 4xe prefix. Especially for diesel lovers, Jeep has prepared a farewell special version of the Wrangler Rubicon FarOut: such SUVs will stand out with a sticker on the hood, an expanded set of options, and original decor.
The life cycle of the diesel Jeep Wrangler turned out to be short: the 3.0-liter V6 Biodiesel appeared on American all-terrain vehicles about three years ago, and all this time the output did not exceed 264 horsepower and 600 Nm. The four-door diesel Wrangler consumes 9.4 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (EPA).
The hybrid four-door Wrangler 4xe is twice as economical (4.8 liters per 100 kilometers), but such indicators are achieved only with a fully charged battery. If the battery runs out, fuel consumption will increase to 11.8 liters per 100 kilometers.
The special version of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon FarOut will be available for order for about a month and a half, and the last batch of diesel all-terrain vehicles will be delivered to dealers by the end of the year. Prices have not yet been announced, but journalists assume that taking into account the declared set of equipment, at least 63 thousand dollars will have to be paid for the special version.
The future of the Jeep brand is associated with electric models, and the only diesel option in the range will be the Gladiator pickup truck with the same 3.0-liter VM Motori engine. Meanwhile, RAM trucks of the same Stellantis concern are also gradually being deprived of engines on “heavy” fuel.
