Fuel: 16 mpg city / 21 mpg hwy
The 2012 Jeep Wrangler is offered in three trims--Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon in either two-door or four-door (Unlimited) bodystyles. Updates for this model year include a new 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that improves fuel efficiency up to 21 miles per gallon, while delivering 285 horsepower (40 percent improvement) and 260 lb.-ft. of torque (10 percent improvement). The Wrangler powertrain now includes new five-speed automatic transmission. New steering wheel mounted functions allow driver to control radio, hands-free phone, and cruise control. The Wrangler Rubicon now shares the Sahara's color-keyed hardtop. The Wrangler Rubicon improves its off-road capabilities by adding a heavy-duty Dana 44 front and rear axles and the Rock-Trac NV241 two-speed transfer case with a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio.
