2016 Jeep Wrangler diesel, price, changes – The Wrangler is one of the most appreciated sport utility vehicles on the market today thanks to its simplicity and the fact that it is one of the most capable vehicles in off-road among any production cars. However, the current model has been around since 2007 and since then it didn’t change all that much. Also, the current model will not be able to meet all the safety standards in the US or Europe so Jeep will have to get on the market an all new car. The upcoming new Jeep Wrangler 2016 will be an all-new model and even though many people thought that it will lose all its off-road capabilities, it seems that Jeep will in fact make a body-on-frame SUV with all the off-road prowess of the older model.
2016 Jeep Wrangler price
At this point in time there is very little information about this upcoming Wrangler but there have been a few leaks which suggest a new vehicle with an aluminum body and a composite and high strength steel chassis. This should top the weight of the car by at least 500 pounds meaning that the fuel consumption will likely go down while the performance, both on and off road will increase by a big margin. The release date has been set in the mid of 2016 while the production car will be ready by the end of that year. The price will stay similar to that of the current model so expect the next Wrangler to cost around $25,000.

Under the hood of the new Jeep Wrangler 2016 should be all new, turbocharged engines. While the displacement will go down, both the power and its fuel consumption will improve. The base engine should be a petrol powered 3.0-liter V6 derived from the Pentastar 3.6-liter model. This should be available with two turbochargers and it should provide around 300 to 330 horsepower and up to 340 lb-ft of torque which should be more than enough for such a light car. For the first time in the US, there should also be available the 2016 Jeep Wrangler diesel with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 which will provide around 240 horsepower and more than 340 lb-ft of torque. While it may not seem as impressive as the petrol engine, this will provide better fuel efficiency and better low-range torque which will mean that the car will be highly capable in off-road conditions. Both of these engines should come paired with an 8-speed automatic and all wheel drive as standard. A manual has also been rumored but it hasn’t been confirmed by Jeep for now.
2016 Jeep Wrangler interior
Inside the cabin we are likely going to see much better materials than before as well as more equipment on the higher level trims. On top of that, the base model should come with water and dirt resistant upholstery as well as easy to use buttons and controls which will provide a very easy to use car. The basic feel of the car will likely remain quite similar to that of the current generation so the open top will likely stay as well as the detachable windows and doors which will make from the new Jeep Wrangler 2016 a real adventurer’s car.

The look will also change and considering how the current Jeep models have evolved, it is safe to assume that the next generation Wrangler will be a more rounded car in general. The front end will get rid of the massive steel bumper in the favor of a safer alternative for pedestrians. The grille as well as the headlights will also be more aerodynamic in order to improve the fuel consumption. The back end on the other hand will see the removal of the external spare wheel and the addition of more aerodynamic features. Final 2016 Jeep Wrangler design will likely be released to the public some time in the early 2016.
