The new 2022 Jeep Wrangler is going to bring many updates and changes. This off-road SUV is legendary, and is one of the best in its segments. Basically, it’s very recognized on the road thanks to the unique seven-slot grille and round headlamps. Also, it features a mix of classic design with modern safety systems, amenities, and technology.
Jeep Wrangler is one of the rare models that offers few engine options. The standard model is available with a 3.6-liter V6 producing 285 horsepower. Also, a plug-in hybrid version is offered as well, with an estimated 25 miles of electric-only range.
2022 Jeep Wrangler Exterior
The forthcoming 2022 Jeep Wrangler is featuring the same blocky and robust design. This model is one of the most iconic vehicles in the world. Like the outgoing model, the new Jeep Wrangler comes in two forms. It will be available as a 2-door or 4-door model.
The 2-door model measures 166.8 inches in length, while the 4-door Unlimited model is nearly 20 inches longer. Interestingly, both versions have a boxy styling that dates from WW II ancestors. Like the past models, the new one is still recognized by its unique seven-slot grille and round headlamps. Also, all models include a soft-top that can be removed.
Mix of Traditional and Modern Technology
Like the exterior, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler interior is a mix of traditional and modern technology. Generally, in this department, we cannot expect some miracle to happen. Jeep is pushing the same design over the years, and we must admit, it’s kinda aging. Like the previous model, the new one comes with the same dash that is equipped with screens ranging from 5 to 8.4 inches.
However, plenty of amenities are available on upper trims. For example, the High Altitude offers Nappa-trimmed leather upholstery, a forward-facing off-road camera, plus heated front seats and steering wheel, Alpine audio system, navigation, and much more. The 382 is the flagship model that includes all the safety techs and a full leather interior. According to plenty of reports, this model is one of the best SUVs version that Jeep has ever made.
2022 Jeep Wrangler Powertrain Specs
As mentioned, like the predecessor, the new 2022 Jeep Wrangler will deploy the same range of engines. The first powertrain is a Pentastar 3.6-litre V6 producing 285 horsepower. This unit comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission. Optionally, one can get a 2.0-liter turbo engine with 270 horsepower.
This engine can be added to all models. Unlike the first one, this unit comes standard with an 8-speed automatic. The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 is the favorite engine that can be chosen optionally on all 4-doors Wrangler models. This engine has a good horsepower of 260, and it uses an 8-speed automatic transmission. One of the most potent units is a 6.4-liter engine that puts forth 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. This one is available with a 4-door Wrangler 392, and it uses an 8-speed automatic.
The plug-in Jeep Wrangler is available as well, and it consists of a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 + electric motors. Thanks to this combination, this model can deliver a total of 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft total torque. Generally, it’s one of the efficient engines providing 50 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent).
Price and Release Date
From some early reports, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler will continue with the same pricing range. That means the base model should start at $28,295 for a 2-door model, while the more popular 4-door Wrangler Unlimited costs $31,795. Moreover, we expect the excellent Wrangler 392 to start at around $60,000. Jeep will probably release all models at the same time, at some point in 2021.
