    Roadshow Jeep Jeep Wrangler. Promised in is a plug-in hybrid option as well, but Jeep has been mum on details. WEird, my GC diesel hauls ass, and with a tune, there is plenty of power below rpm. The Rock-Trac system in the Rubicon comes with the whole shebang.

    Jeep Wrangler gets turbo, diesel, hybrid options for the first time at L.A. Auto Show - Roadshow

    The off-road world has been waiting with bated breath for the next-generation iconic Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep arguably has the best off-road capability of all the SUVs currently on the market and now it will have a new twist: We'll have to wait until for that oil-burner to arrive. In the meantime, folks have the option of a new 2. The smaller turbocharged engine is good for horsepower and is mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission.

    This mild-hybrid system is in place not only for reduced emission and better fuel economy, but more importantly for the torque. All pound-feet of it is available at the low-end thanks to the volt battery, making slow-speed rock crawling even easier. No word on EPA fuel ratings, but Jeep certainly seems to be paying attention to efficiency this time around. I'll admit to being a bit skeptical about a turbocharger in a vehicle meant for off-road glory, but Jeep placed the twin-scroll turbocharger directly on the cylinder head for greater durability and designed an electronically actuated waste gate that should perform well even when one is rock crawling or in a precarious situation.

    Further, a separate liquid-cooling system for air, throttle body and turbo should allow drivers to turn up the heat on their driving lines choices while keeping their power points nice and cool.

    But really, it's the diesel that I think most folks will want to wait for. Jeeps are made for slow and steady rock climbing, not fast dune running like the Ford Raptor; it does just fine with horsepower in the mids.

    The extra torque, however, is a boon and should help the Wrangler climb up and over obstacles even easier. Promised in is a plug-in hybrid option as well, but Jeep has been mum on details. And what if you just want to row your own gears? An all-new six-speed manual transmission is standard on all Wranglers with the 3.

    Jeep gives the Wrangler in the Sahara trim the option of the new Selec-Trac full-time two speed transfer case, providing full-time four-wheel drive as well as a 2. When in full-time four-wheel drive, power defaults to the rear wheels, but the Jeep will send power to the front when needed. The part-time four-wheel drive Command-Trac system is standard in the Sahara, with the same low-range gear ratio but really, go for the good stuff. The Rock-Trac system in the Rubicon comes with the whole shebang.

    You get locking front and rear differentials, front sway bar disconnect and a killer 4: The Command-Trac and Rock-Trac systems are still the same as in past Jeep generations, but the new transmissions improve crawl ratios. Again, this helps out when the going gets tough and slow speed coupled with high torque is necessary. With the standard six-speed manual transmission, Wrangler Rubicon has an impressive and improved crawl ratio of An approach angle of 44 degrees, breakover angle of This latest generation Wrangler has also made a visit to Weight Watchers and has dropped pounds.

    Most of that is due to the use of aluminum in the hood, fenders and doors as well as a magnesium tailgated wrapped in aluminum. Additionally, 90 pounds was taken out of the frame thanks to the additional use of high strength steel. Wranglers have never been known for their interior technology, but the model is shaping up to be pretty nifty.

    FCA's excellent Uconnect system is standard across a 5, 7 or 8. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both included along with a Wi-Fi hotspot, two USB ports, two 12V accessory ports and a volt three-prong AC outlet, all the better for blending up some beverages at the end of the trail. When it comes to driver's aids, well, don't expect much. Jeep has finally outfitted the Wrangler with a back-up camera and blind spot monitoring is now a go with audible and visual warnings.
