Low figures relate to the least economical version; high to the most economical. Based on WLTP combined fuel economy for versions of this car made since September 2017 only, and typical current fuel or electricity costs.

Fuel economy

Petrol engines 24.8 - 27.2 mpg
Diesel engines 29.4 - 30.7 mpg
  • Running costs likely to be quite high
  • Diesel returns best fuel economy
  • Servicing and maintenance could be pricey 

As with performance, the running costs – particularly claimed fuel economy – varies depending on the specific Wrangler you go for. The figures listed below are for the 2.2-litre diesel engine.

  • Wrangler Sahara 2-door – 31.8mpg
  • Wrangler Sahara 4-door – 30.9mpg
  • Wrangler Rubicon 2-door – 31.8mpg
  • Wrangler Rubicon 4-door – 29.7mpg

Figures are yet to be released for the petrol Wrangler, but expect claimed fuel economy to be in the 20s as the less-efficient alternative to the diesel.

Don’t expect wonderful things from the Wrangler range when it comes to green motoring and fuel efficiency.

All models emit high levels of CO2, with just diesel figures available at the time of writing.

CO2 emissions range from 195g/km for the two-door Sahara version (the greenest), to 209g/km for the four-door Wrangler Rubicon.

As with fuel economy figures, we expect the petrol Wrangler will perform worse than the diesel when it comes to CO2 emissions, but this is yet to be confirmed. 

  • Hard to judge Wrangler’s reliability
  • New engines and new components
  • Feels like it’ll last a long time, though 

It’s too early to tell just yet how reliable the Wrangler will be, especially as it’s an all-new car that uses new engines. However, it’s built to withstand some serious off-road situations and feels very solid and durable indeed.

The previous-generation Wrangler was the subject of a few recalls relating to the airbags, but none relating to its mechanical and electronic systems.

If any issues do come up as a recall, Jeep will fix them free of charge, and any other issues that arise before Jeep’s three-year warranty expires should also be rectified, as long as they’re not wear and tear issues.
