Overview

What's New in the 2020 Jeep Wrangler?

While it carries over mostly unchanged, Jeep has made a few notable changes to the Wrangler for 2020. The most exciting is the addition of the long-awaited diesel powertrain that should finally go on sale in the next few months. Since the new JL Wrangler was introduced for the 2018 model year, Jeep has been promising that this unique engine option would enter the fray down the line, so we're excited that it's finally here. Other changes include the expansion of the mild hybrid eTorque option to different trim levels, the availability of the LED lighting package on the base Wrangler Sport, the inclusion of automatic high beams for Wranglers equipped with the Advanced Safety Group and an 8.4-in UConnect system.  See the 2020 Jeep Wrangler models for sale near you

Which Wrangler is the Best?

Any Wrangler offers great off-road capability, but at the expense of day-to-day livability. Still, for many, the trade-off is well worth it, as there are few vehicles on sale today outside of Jeep's own Gladiator that match the Wrangler's coolness factor -- at least, not until the new Bronco goes on sale. When it comes to choosing the perfect Wrangler for you, it's hard to argue with the convenience factor of the 4-door Unlimited for starters. Most buyers will be well served by the Wrangler's Sport S trim, as it offers basic creature comforts not available on the base Sport while still keeping the price tag within reason. Beyond this though, it's really up to you. If you want more curb appeal, look to the Sahara. If you want to tackle the hardest trails Moab has to offer, get a Rubicon. Rest assured that any one of these should offer great resale value. Find a Jeep Wrangler for sale

Is the 2020 Jeep Wrangler a Safe Car?

The Wrangler is available with forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, full-speed adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring and a park assist system.Every Wrangler comes with only front- and side-impact airbags. Given its convertible top, there are no curtain airbags. Per federal regulations, a rearview camera and stability control are also included.The new Wrangler has yet to be crash-tested by a third party. That said, crash tests conducted in the European and Australian markets have shown the Wrangler to be a bit lacking with regard to overall crash worthiness, so this is something to keep in mind.

Competition

2020 Jeep Wrangler vs the competition

2020 Jeep Gladiator -- The Gladiator is essentially a Wrangler with a bed, but it offers towing and payload capacity on par with other midsize trucks, such as the Toyota Tacoma and the Ford Ranger. For just a few thousand dollars more than a Wrangler, the Gladiator offers way more capability. 2021 Ford Bronco -- While it hasn't even been formally revealed yet, the upcoming Ford Bronco is poised to become the Wrangler's first true competitor in decades. While it'll offer an independent front suspension for better on-road performance, expect the new Bronco to come with exceptional off-road capability, along with a removable roof and doors just like the Wrangler's. If you don't need a new vehicle right this second, it may be worth waiting to see what else Ford's bringing to the table with the Bronco before rushing out and buying a Wrangler 2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD Off-Road -- Probably the closest competitor to the Wrangler that you can actually buy right now, the 4Runner offers exceptional reliability to go with its great off-road capability. Don't get us wrong, its design is ancient and its powertrain is quite inefficient, but some major upgrades for 2020 with regard to safety and infotainment help to keep it fresh. 2020 Land Rover Defender -- While it's generally more expensive than the mainstream Wrangler trims, the new Defender's starting price of $51,000 positions it to compete with a well-equipped Wrangler Rubicon. A Defender with most of the available off-road bits can be had for around $60,000, or the price of a loaded Rubicon. Jeep Trailhawk Trim -- If you're interested in a Jeep for its off-road capability but hesitant to make the sacrifices required for Wrangler ownership, consider any of Jeep's Trailhawk trim levels. Be it the Renegade, the Compass, the Cherokee or the Grand Cherokee, any Jeep Trailhawk trim level offers off-road capability beyond that of your average crossover.
