2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel Price and Release Date
With the fuel economy issue in the current model which is only about 17 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, the comeback of 2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel is expected to show its improvements. This part will be one of Jeep’s concerns. Well, this fuel economy rating is not so bad with the knobby tires, two solid axles as well as flat windshields but the demand of better mpg is quite big right now. The current reports mentioned that it is better for Jeep to offer it with lighter weight so that it has a great focus on fuel savings without reducing its off-road capability.
No official confirmation has been made, we hear that they are working to give a brand new suspension system in fully independent design and intensive materials for lightweight body design such as aluminum. It is possible to use the aluminum body to reduce its weight since it does not rust and it makes you forget about welding in flour pan. Additionally, 2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will receive new underpinnings and architectures. The use of independent suspension system will make it smoother and more controlled. Just like Hummer H2 that is designed with independent suspension but it has outstanding off-road performance.
