Although Jeep still doesn’t have any electrified model in its lineup, things will change pretty soon. We are about to see several electrified models in the near future, but the Electric 2020 Jeep Wrangler probably draws the most attention. At this point, we don’t know too many details about this version, but the latest reports suggest we are about to see the PHEV model first. On the other side, an all-electric version seems like a pretty ambitious move, which will probably require a little bit more time. Therefore, we don’t expect to see it that soon, but rather in a couple of years.
On the other side, the rest of the lineup should remain pretty much untouched. This SUV now comes with several engines in the offer, both gasoline and diesel options, so the company has plenty of room to work on electrification. Still, don’t exclude minor updates like new standard features etc.
Electric 2020 Jeep Wrangler Specs
At this point, the Jeep Wrangler 2020 Electric is still just a rumor. More precisely, no one believes that the all-electric model will be ready that soon. This is a quite ambitious project, which will probably take a couple of years. Still, that doesn’t mean there is no electrification to happen this year. The Electric 2020 Jeep Wrangler may not come, but the Hybrid Electric model is in the testing phase. At this point, we can only make predictions about the specs. The exact details are still unavailable, but some design solutions seem pretty much certain.
This particularly refers to the base hybrid setup. Most reports suggest that the new PHEV model will feature a hybrid setup that is very similar to Chrysler Pacifica PHEV. This means you may count on a system that is based on the familiar 3.6-liter V6 engine. The popular minivan delivers around 260 horsepower and features the all-electric range of 31 miles. We expect that the new Wrangler will get some power boost, considering that we are talking about a bigger and heavier vehicle. Also, this version will probably feature a bigger battery. Otherwise, the all-electric range will be significantly shorter compared to Pacifica.
How would Electric 2020 Jeep Wrangler look like?
Of course, this is another thing that may bother you. Aesthetics play an important role in today’s automotive industry, even among electric vehicles. Moreover, carmakers don’t insist on accentuating the model’s electric nature anymore. Moreover, new EVs tend to look like common cars and SUVs. Therefore, we may presume that the 2020 Electric Jeep Wrangler will keep the same look, especially if we consider that this is one of the most iconic stylings in the history of the automotive industry.
Still, we count on a couple of details that will make this version a little bit exclusive. Of course, this particularly refers to the grille layout, which will come a little bit different. Of course, we could also see different wheels and some exclusive color options. Other than that, things will probably remain the same.
The same thing goes for interior design. We are about to see a familiar cabin layout, which is characterized by a pretty modern layout, which also keeps many classic design solutions. This particularly refers to the dashboard. Also, the interior dimensions should remain pretty much the same, which means you may count on two spacious rows of seats. Of course, we are talking about the 4-door, Unlimited version.
On the other side, the smaller 2-door model probably won’t be available with electrified powertrain options. Of course, we count on loads of tech features, including the company’s excellent infotainment system. The only expected difference is the instrument cluster, which will be adapted to the model’s EV nature.
Conventional Powertrain Alternatives
If we presume that the new Electric 2020 Jeep Wrangler will probably be a quite expensive vehicle, there is no doubt that many drivers will still prefer internal-combustion powertrain options. Therefore, we have no doubt that the offer will remain the same. This means you may count on two familiar gasoline and one diesel engine in the offer. The base engine is a well-known 3.6-liter V6, which is good for about 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
On the other side, an optional 2.0-liter turbo-four is good for about 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. When it comes to a diesel engine, we count on a new version of the familiar 3.0-liter V6, which will feature a max output of 260 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque.
Every Jeep Model Will Get Electrified Version In the Near Future
The hybrid Wrangler is on the way, while the Renegade and Compass already received new electrified powertrain options. According to the officials, the rest of the lineup will also get electrified versions in the near future. This includes the new generation of Grand Cherokee, as well as the long-awaited Wagoneer comeback model.
