Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - DRIVING -

Jeep has an­nounced the next-gen­er­a­tion Wran­gler, set to make its of­fi­cial de­but at the Los An­ge­les Auto Show next month. Jeep kept de­tails on all the engine and trans­mis­sion spec­i­fi­ca­tions to it­self, but here’s what we do know. The new Wran­gler will have more safety fea­tures and ad­vanced, fuel-ef­fi­cient pow­er­trains. Aero­dy­nam­ics will be im­proved and there will be “a con­ve­nient fold-down wind­shield for off-road purists, even more open-air free­dom, and dozens of dif­fer­ent door, top and wind­shield com­bi­na­tions.”

In terms of pow­er­trains, here’s what has been ru­moured so far: a 2.0-litre tur­bocharged four-cylin­der engine, a 3.6-L Pen­tas­tar V-6 engine, and down the road, a 3.0-L tur­bod­iesel V6. Beyond that, there is no of­fi­cial word on avail­able trans­mis­sions for any of the en­gines, how­ever a mix of man­ual and au­to­matic is pos­si­ble.
