EURO SPEC JL HINTS AT OZ OP­TIONS

4 x 4 Australia - - 4x4 Shed -

THE EURO­PEAN me­dia launch of the Wran­gler re­vealed the en­gines for the first right-hand-drive JLS for the UK mar­ket, giv­ing us an in­di­ca­tion of what we might ex­pect when the lat­est Wran­gler lands here in Jan­uary 2019. The JL Wan­gler will be launched in Europe and the UK in Septem­ber, with a choice of three en­gines and two 4x4 sys­tems. There will be two petrol en­gines – a new tur­bocharged petrol four-cylin­der and the fa­mil­iar V6 Pen­tas­tar en­gine – plus a sin­gle tur­bod­iesel. The lat­ter is a 2.2-litre Mul­ti­jet II turbo-diesel en­gine that’s also found in the Jeep Cherokee and some Alfa Romeo ve­hi­cles. The Euro launch in­for­ma­tion only men­tions the new eight-speed auto trans­mis­sion, with no word of a man­ual op­tion. FCA says it is not ready to re­veal de­tails of the Aus­tralian JL Wran­gler range just yet and will do so closer to the launch in 2019.
