For the past year or so, most of Jeep’s attention has been directed towards the all-new Gladiator. Now that it’s launched and breaking midsize pickup records, it’s time for the iconic Jeep Wrangler to step back in the spotlight. Although, 2018 marked a major revamp for the wrangler, it appears that Jeep has decided it’s time for the Wrangler to get some updates. According to Moparinsiders.com, the 2020 Wrangler will feature a new trim package along with some powertrain updates.
Mopar Insiders claims it received the information from Jeep dealerships and the access they’ve got to order forms. For 2020 the Wrangler is set to receive a number of new options, plenty which will benefit the lower trims as well. To start, the optional LED exterior lighting package is slated to be available for the Sport S trim, while the automatic high-beam headlight control is now going to be part of the Advanced Safety Group. That means that the automatic high-beam headlight control will also be part of the package that includes the 8.4-inch touchscreen display with Uconnect 4 and navigation.
The Moab Special Edition Wrangler will no longer be available, but it’ll be replaced by an all-new special edition. The Wrangler Black & Tan Edition package is all-new for 2020 and it’s based on the Sport S trim. The new special edition adds a tan premium Sunrider soft top – with an optional dual top, black Jeep fender badges, Heritage tan cloth seats, dual-zone climate control, 17-inch Machined Granite Crystal Wheels, all-terrain tires, a 7-inch Uconnect touchscreen, and Sirius XM Satellite Radio. The Black & Tan Edition will be available on both the two- and four-door models and will cost an additional $1,695 over the Sport S MSRP. Heritage Tan will also replace Dark Saddle as an interior color, while there’ll be a total of 12 exterior colors offered for 2020 as well.
Additionally, it’s also rumored that Jeep is rearranging the powertrain options for 2020. Jeep will now offer conventional and hybrid variants of both of their engines – the conventional 3.6-liter V6 and the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The eTorque hybrid system is only available on the four-door Wrangler Sahara trim and it’ll continue this way, only with the addition of the eTorque availability for either engine option. The other trims will continue featuring the 3.6-liter V6 as the standard, with the 2.0-liter inline-four as an optional upgrade. The promised 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 is expected to arrive with the new 2020 model, although there are no clear details quite yet. The 2020 Wrangler will likely begin hitting dealerships this fall.
