What engines are available for the 2022 Jeep Wrangler?
As standard equipment, the Jeep Wrangler lineup is powered by the Pentastar 3.6L V6 engine that has been praised time and time again. The Pentastar engine delivers 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This engine also uses eTorque mild-hybrid technology, providing greater fuel efficiency and low-end torque. All Wrangler Unlimited, or four-door, models are available with the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine, delivering 260 horsepower and a whopping 442 lb-ft of torque. Optional for all models is a turbocharged 2.0L I-4 engine, delivering 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Exclusive to the Wrangler Rubicon 392 is a 392-cubic inch 6.4L HEMI V8, ripping out an exhilarating 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque to match. Lastly, is the available 4xe powertrain. Available for the Sahara, Rubicon, and High Altitude trim, the 4xe is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle powertrain, offering 375 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque, and an impressive 56 MPG gas-equivalent. The Pentastar engine and turbocharged I-4 are mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Meanwhile, the V8, 4xe, and EcoDiesel engines come with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
What are the trim levels and features of the 2022 Wrangler?
One thing that makes the Wrangler so popular is its versatility. It can be just about anything you need it to be depending on the trim level. The Sport trim comes well equipped with a removable soft top, a fold-down windshield, removable doors, skid plates, Dana 44 axles, 17-inch steel wheels, front and rear tow hooks, a 7-inch Uconnect 4 infotainment touchscreen, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, and push-button ignition. At the Wrangler lineup’s mid-range, you’ll find more style with the Sahara, offering Keyless Enter n’ Go, body-color fender flares, 18-inch alloy wheels, black side steps, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen. Meanwhile, the Willys trim adds exclusive decals, 33-inch all-terrain tires, Trac-Lok limited-slip rear differential, heavy-duty shocks, and LED exterior lighting. The Rubicon trim is an off-roader’s dream, offering locking front and rear differentials, a disconnecting front sway bar, Rock-Trac 4×4, the Off-Road+ button, and more.
What 4×4 systems does the 2022 Jeep Wrangler use?
Since the Wrangler is a legend on the trails, you can imagine it has some pretty awesome 4×4 systems. And, boy, does it! Standard equipment for most of the Wrangler lineup is the trusted Command-Trac 4×4. Command-Trac is a part-time system, meaning drivers can select between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive with 4-HI and 4-LO drive modes, depending on terrain and road conditions. Selec-Trac 4×4 is optional for some trims. Selec-Trac uses a network of sensors to monitor traction and when a loss of traction is detected, the system will automatically redistribute available power to all four wheels. Selec-Trac acts on its own, without any driver input. Lastly, Rock-Trac 4×4 is exclusive to the Rubicon trim. Another part-time system, Rock-Trac operates similarly to Command-Trac in that it uses driver input to determine which wheels should get power. However, the Rock-Trac transfer case has a crawl ratio of just 4:1, allowing drivers to conquer some of the most rugged trails with ease.
