2018 Jeep Wrangler May go Hybrid


Quote:
Improved fuel economy is a priority for the redesigned Jeep Wrangler and a hybrid powertrain may be in the cards to make it happen.

'You have the potential for hybrid powertrains in the future,' said Jeep boss Mike Manley. 'For those people who use the Wrangler, the most important thing is the initial torque and the crawl ratio. With an electric motor you have the most torque available and with the right combination of transmission and gear ratios you can create incredible crawl ratios.'

When the new Wrangler arrives, it is likely to use many different technologies to accomplish its goals of improving fuel economy and on-road comfort while staying true to its off-road roots. An aluminum body, eight-speed transmission and diesel engine have all been mentioned as possibilities for the upcoming Jeep icon, while Manly even proposed carbon fiber as an option for the new Wrangler.
