Anuron Deka's image

Anuron Deka Automotive Journalist Updated on: December 8, 2019


Back in the days of the World War II Jeep used to make vehicles to carry our troops to and across the borders with its superior off-road capabilities. The 2020 Jeep Wrangler has the same feel as the first-generation Jeep, though they made sure that this new Wrangler comes equipped with all the tech and luxury one needs now. This car has two trims into production with two mild-hybrid engine options for you to choose from.

Expert Review

Overall Rating


2020 Jeep Wrangler comes three trims, but share the same engine, a 3.6L V6 unit that is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and an optional 8-speed automatic transmission to go with. The car can cranks out 285 horses @ 6400 RPM  and maximum torque of 260 lb.-ft. @ 4800 RPM. These numbers may not sound so good to some but on the road, this SUV can go to 60 MPH at a respectable time of 7.6 seconds. This Jeep locks horns with Toyota 4Runner and Range Rover Evoque.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Features

8.0/10

This year Jeep has outdone themselves with giving their customers so much choice in their trim options and packages that go with them. 2020 Wrangler has three trim levels: Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon. This car comes both as 2-door and 4-door in various variants of these trims. Furthermore, the new Black and Tan variant can be built on top of Sport S which adds some extra and helpful features to the car. 

The Sport is the base trim of the 2020 Wrangler with regular 17-inch steel wheels and new foglights. The Sport S is a little less rough from the Sport with alloys and air conditioning. Sport S also comes as a 4-door car in the Ultimate variant of the Jeep for those who travel with a pack and lot of luggage.

Whereas the Rubicon trim offers a much higher off-road capacity than the Sport or the Sport S. Rubicon comes loaded with many features that Sport and Sport S miss. Rubicon has daytime running headlamps and dusk-sensing headlamps which turn on and off by sensing the dusk around you.

The Unlimited variant comes in Sport, Sport S, Sahara and Rubicon with 4-doors but you would have to sacrifice features like sky one-touch power top and front door pockets.

Which trim would we recommend?

We suggest you go for the Rubicon trim as it offers superior off-road capabilities and features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. This is simply the best off-roading beast money can buy.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Engine

2020 Jeep Wrangler comes with a standard 3.6L V6 engine combined with a six-speed manual transmission. This year Jeep has introduced engines like 2.0L ESS, 3.6L ESS, and 3.0L EcoDiesel ESS with their Wrangler Sport trim. Sahara’s lineup has also changed with a 3.6L ESS, 2.0/3.6 L with mild-hybrid eTorque assist, and a 3.0L EcoDiesel ESS.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Engine Bay

The Sport trim offers a 3.6L V6 that gives the 2020 Wrangler a whopping 285 hp to drive through any rough terrain giving the driver a firm, secure grip on the road and power on demand.

One major change in this year’s 2020 Jeep Wrangler is the V6 eTorque engine which is only available in Sahara Trim which is the biggest catch for this car. You may relate this to the 48-volt mild hybrid system commonly found in the Ram 1500. This mild hybrid increases fuel efficiency and helps the engine to make more torque before the turbo kicks in. Then comes the Unlimited Variant of 2020 Wrangler which is a 4-door variant available with every trim level. Some may prefer a 4-door Wrangler to a 2-door style, depending on their needs

How fast is the Wrangler?

Being an SUV weighing 4277 lbs, the base 3.6L V6 gives the 2020 Wrangler enough juice to get from 0 to 60 MPH in 6.7 seconds. As unimpressive it may seem, this is a respectable timing for an SUV built for wandering off the road. The 285hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque gives the car enough power to push through hard and rough terrains without any difficulty.

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is the faster SUV compared to the Toyota 4Runner SR5 and Range Rover Evoque. 4Runner SR5 has a bigger engine but still lacks that speed of the 2020 Wrangler.

How efficient is the braking system?

For an SUV built to withstand harsh off-road conditions and treacherous terrains, 2020 Wrangler offers a five-link coil suspension to ensure better off-road acceleration and braking even on the most unstable grounds.

Toyota 4Runner SR5 is heavier than the 2020 Wrangler and the Range Rover Evoque but still manages to stop at only 121 ft from 60 mph. Considering the competition, 2020 Jeep Wrangler lacks the necessary braking prowess, but there are always customization available once on the road.

Hoe does this SUV ride and handle?

Built to withstand tough terrains the new 2020 Jeep Wrangler delivers on its intentions. This year is special for Wrangler lovers as Jeep has introduced a 3L Turbo-Diesel engine that will be available in late 2020. This unit is a beast when compared to the stock 3.6L V6. The car is very easy to maneuver on rough terrains with big 17 inch tires high ground clearance that helps the driver to maintain an upright posture while driving on these unstable terrains.

With steady rear and front axles, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler can easily climb huge boulders and trails. Also, a short wheelbase combined with big tires helps the driver to take on any terrain. The suspension is absolutely solid and swallows the toughest of shocks.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Fuel Economy

2020 Wrangler’s engine has two types of transmissions: 8-speed and 6-speed. Both these transmissions have different MPG ratings with 8-speed leading the chart for this car. The automatic transmission gives a slightly better MPG of 18/23/20 (City/Highway/Combined).

2020 Jeep Wrangler Interior

7.5/10

Although there are many new things with the 2020 Jeep Wrangler, the interior remains the same for this SUV this year. 2019 Jeep Wrangler had some upgrades since the newly launched 2018 Wrangler. Interiors got a taste of premium materials in 2019 with a blend of modern and retroelements. Furthermore, the roof and doors are removable which gives it a barebone look. Whether you are on a trip or a daily commute, this Jeep keeps you safe and comfortable throughout. The driving position of the seat is upright equipped with various seat and steering wheel adjustments.

What's there to keep you entertained?

Inspired by the World War 2 Jeep models this 2020 Jeep Wrangler gets a modernized touch in terms of infotainment section. The stock display in all the trims is a 7-inch touchscreen but there’s an option for an 8.4-inch touchscreen. The car comes equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in both the 7 and 8.4-inch displays. 

 

2020 Jeep Wrangler Infotainment

 

All Jeeps comes with a UConnect infotainment system and this is the 4th generation of the UConnect system. Both the 7 and 8.4-inch displays support pinch&zoom capability. Although the Sport trim has a 5-inch standard screen.

How much cargo can this SUV carry?

Being an off-road vehicle with removable doors and roof, this 2020 Wrangler doesn’t have large cargo space but you can fold the 2nd row to get some more space. Some other cars in this competition offer a larger cargo space, but can't match the rawness of the Wrangler.

8.0/10

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler can be considered as a neo-retro combination of the Jeep SUVs that has existed over the year. It proudly exercises the look of the WWII jeep with LED headlamps and aerodynamic design touches, in essence carrying forth a legacy that dates back to the Greatest Generation. There are several design features in the base trim common to the old Jeep such as steel wheels and easily removable doors. For the more modern outlook, there are 18-inch alloy wheels and hardtop on the Sport trim and above. So, matter what you want the Wrangler to look like, there is something for everyone in the lineup.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Safety

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler has not been fully tested by federal authorities for its performance. Still, it can be rated fairly in terms of safety. The Wrangler received 4 stars in the frontal crash and 3 stars in rollover protection, courtesy of NHTSA. The IIHS has given it no rating regarding its safety but it might not yet be a deal-breaker. The Jeep Wrangler comes with a lot of advanced safety features and driver aids, making good on its promise to improve in light of its predecessor’s poor safety record. Most of these systems are common to all trims and well up to par with the industry standard for off-road vehicles.

Safety Features

  • Electronic Stability Control(ESC) with Roll Stability Control
  • ABS And Driveline Traction Control
  • Side Impact Beams
  • Tire Specific Low Tire Pressure Warning
  • Dual-Stage Driver And Passenger Seat-Mounted Side Airbags

2020 Jeep Wrangler Competition

2020 JEEP WRANGLER VS TOYOTA 4RUNNER SR5

Both these mid-size SUVs offer something that the other car doesn’t give. Such as the Toyota 4Runner comes with a 4L V6 whereas 2020 Wrangler comes with a 3.6L V6 making a big difference in the performance.  When it comes to off-roading, which this car is built for, Toyota can’t beat Wrangler. With the 2020 Wrangler, you can cross the most unstable terrains hassle-free.

2020 JEEP WRANGLER VS LAND ROVER RANGE ROVER EVOQUE

2020 Jeep Wrangler has more off-roading capabilities than the Range Rover Evoque plus the maintenance for the Range Rover Evoque and 2020 Wrangler is miles apart. Evoque could be a better option for those who want to buy a city car whereas the 2020 Wrangler is for all the off-road enthusiasts out there.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Final Verdict

All in all the 2020 Jeep Wrangler is a pure off-road beast built to climb the hardest of the terrains in any weather. The removable doors and roofs make it the best off-road SUV you can get in this range. Furthermore, no other off-road SUV in this range offers so many trims and variants which you can customize freely from both the factory or custom shops. One more feature we liked about 2020 Wrangler is the Unlimited edition in their variants, which gives the buyers an option to go for either a 2-door or a 4-door Wrangler. If you are a real off-roader and love to take on new adventures now and then, 2020 Jeep Wrangler will be the best bet for you.
