Our Team at Planet Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is Always Thinking Ahead

This page tracks changes to Jeep Wrangler for each year and includes official and unofficial projections for future product changes. Projections are based on a combination of instinct, research, rumors, and insider knowledge. Check back here for Wrangler future product news.

For 2021, Jeep will offer a plug-in hybrid Wrangler,to be called Wrangler 4Xe. It can travel 25 miles on full electric mode. This powertrain has the potential to drastically reduce the amount of fuel used, since the first 25 miles of every trip can be fully electric. The plug-in electric hybrid will be paired with the excellent 2.0 Turbo four-cylinder engine.  

Wrangler PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) should qualify for federal tax credits up to $7,500. Check back here for the latest updates.

For 2022, Jeep has teased a 392 motor may become available.  This engine is a big seller in the Challenger and Charger models and is also available in the Grand Cherokee SRT.

What else do we expect for the new 2022 Wrangler?  Most likely on the list would be powertrain changes and upgrades or changes to packaging in options groups.  We will likely see new special models, like the Altitude that debuted in the 2020 model year.  The Wrangler typically has a long model run, with the JK version running from the 2007 model year into 2018.  Since the JL began production as a 2018 model-year vehicle, it's unlikely we will see major changes for many years.

A big change for 2021 was the availability of the 3.0 EcoDiesel engine. This motor offers 260 HP and 480 lb-ft of torque. If you want to know more about this engine, click the link below.

The present series of Wrangler is referred to as 'JL.' Pictures below show recent upgrades and features offered.  The 2.0L 4 Cylinder Turbo has been available since the 2018 model year.

Available in 2018 and 2019 in E-Torque configuration only. For 2020 model year, the 2.0 E-Torque is standard and only available on Sahara (with 3.6L V6 available as a $1000 option). The 2.0 Turbo ESS configuration is standard on Sport series (including Willys and Altitude) and Rubicon. The ESS engine has electric stop/start and is simpler than the E-Torque configuration, but lacks the additional torque available from the belt-start generator.

Since 2018, the Wrangler has offered blind spot monitoring as an optional safety feature. The sensors are built into the rear brake lights and can be seen here as the black attachment on the outside of the light.

Also new for the JL series are standard back-up camera which is mounted in the middle of the spare tire, and optional LED headlights, which greatly improve nighttime visibility.
