The 2020 order guide for the Jeep Wrangler has arrived, and it reveals some big changes in store for next year’s Wrangler.
Order guides are starting to leak from various manufacturers, showcasing what’s in store for the next model year’s vehicles. Jeep is the latest to drop thanks to the JL Wrangler Forums, and with it comes a bevy of information on what we can expect from the 2020 model year ute.
First, it’s best we get this out of the way now: all trims get a flat $250 price bump. This means the Unlimited Sport starts at $31,795 not including the $1,495 destination fee.
Engines are the next big change. It will no longer cost extra to get the 8-speed automatic on the 2.0-L turbo 4-cylinder engine. Previously it cost an extra $2,000 every time since the 2.0-L was only available with the 8-speed. Now, Jeep is making it a bit easier to buy their turbocharged Wrangler by giving the transmission portion for free.
Going to the 2.0-L turbo will cost an extra $1,500 still on the Sport and Rubicon trims, and includes electronic stop/start for extra fuel savings. The Rubicon also gets hill descent control as well. The Sahara trim can get the 2.0-L for an extra $2,000, but it comes with FCA’s eTroque mild hybrid system.
Strangely, opting for the 3.6-L Pentastar V6 with the 8-speed automatic on the Sport or Rubicon trims will cost $2,500 for 2020, which is $500 more than 2019. The Sahara trim will get it for just $2,000, but it will cost an extra $1,000 for the engine since it will now come with eTorque.
Available packages for the Sport trim will be the Sport S, Altitude, and replacing the Moab package is the new "Black and Tan." With it comes a Sunrider soft top roof, tan cloth seats, black instrument panel trim, and parts of the Technology Group which includes a 7-inch Uconnect infotainment, dual-zone climate control, side steps, and 17-inch painted rims on all-terrain tires.
The Sahara gets the Altitude trim as on the current year, and the Rubicon just gets a bunch of group options for various high-end features.
