Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 22 - 39 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Don’t expect cheap Jeep Wrangler running costs. The 2.8-litre diesel averages a respectable 34.9, while 213g/km carbon dioxide emissions are not the worst for a full-size and serious off-roader. Depreciation should be relatively sedate however, while Jeep servicing tends to be good value for money. Insurance groups are also reasonably low for this type of car.

The 2.8-litre CRD engine is the most popular, delivering the best Jeep Wrangler emissions. In the Unlimited four-door version it emits 213g/km of CO2 and returns 34.9mpg, both improvements over the original’s 227g/km and 33mpg.

The rugged, no-nonsense build should translate into strong Jeep Wrangler reliability. It’s built to tackle rough, demanding terrain, so is mechanically tough.
