With over 500 miles of a driving range, this Wrangler has everything a driver would need to travel off-road and enjoy the adventure for longer on the trails. The 18.3-gallon fuel tank is actually smaller than the 21.5 gallons in the gasoline-powered four-door Wrangler models. The optional 2.0-Liter turbo-four offers 21 city mpg and 22 highway mpg and hits 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The standard 3.6-Liter V6 is officially rated at 19 city mpg and 22 highway mpg and hits 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The improvement in gas mileage is important to keep in mind, but so are the amenities offered by Jeep.

Find the Adventure In the Wrangler
We know Jeep owners are hoping to maximize their adventure and fun with the ability to go nearly anywhere outdoors. Travel on a beach, go on new trails, move across shallow water (up to thirty inches of waterfording ability) and enjoy the ability to go off-script from the typical roads. Now, with the EcoDiesel, drivers can go further than before and safely go off-road thanks to its dual solid axle suspension setup and off-road-ready tires.
Keep in mind, the Wrangler retains its value better than any vehicle on the road according to iseecars.com. The average five-year depreciation of vehicles sold in 2015 is 49.6 percent. The Wrangler lost only 31.5 percent of its value. Hoping to drive one of the most coveted Jeep vehicles? Check in with us at Kendall Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram today.
