The all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL hasn’t been available for long and if you were wondering when you might be able to ditch that standard V6 and order it with the optional turbo four, the time is here. Word is that the order code for the turbo four has turned up meaning the option can be ordered. There is a catch for some folks, specifically those favoring a manual transmission.
The Turbo four is only offered with the 8-speed automatic. That means while the engine is only a $1,000 option, adding that automatic brings the total to $3,000 more than the base model with the manual transmission.
That also means if you planned to get the auto anyway, the turbo four doesn’t add much to the price of the JL Wrangler. The turbo four brings 268hp and 295 lb-ft of torque to the party. The base six has 285hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. A V6 diesel is still coming.
