    2020 Jeep JL Updates Confirmed

    One of my old coworkers at the dealership just told me what to expect for the 2020 JL/JLU, and sent me some cool pics. Figured I would post them up here.

    -A new color will be added around December called Sarge. I'm hoping it will be an OD Green! There is nothing in writing about this, but he said he's heard it from multiple people.

    -The 3.0 Diesel WILL be coming

    -Auto Highbeam will be an option

    -A new 3.6 BSG and 2.0 ESS will be available on Sport and Sahara. Not sure what that means honestly

    -LED lighting group is now available on Sport S

    -Heritage tan interior will be replaced with a color called Dark Saddle

    -eTorque will be available on the 3.6, but is going away from the 2.0

    -A "Black & Tan" edition will be coming

    2020 Jeep JL Updates Confirmed

    I hope e-torque is not standard on the 3.6 L. 13geckorubi, still says the diesel is coming in 2019, but I guess that could mean on the 2020 models.

    No kidding. I’d personally rather have a small v8, than a diesel.

    Hmm... interesting that they are moving the etorque to the 3.6. I’m also curious if it will be standard. If so, I am glad I bought a 2019 without it!

    Mild hybrid. It has the generator in place of the alternator and a battery beside the gas tank.

    Edit: Frankly it's why I ordered the 3.6. If the 2.0T was available less the e-torque bullshit I would have strongly considered it because of the increased mileage.

    Looking at the OP’s photos it seems like the 2.0 will be without e-torque on the Rubicon in 2020. If that’s true it seems like a surprising development.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
