Jeep® Continues Going Green By Reducing Wrangler Environmental Impact by 15 Percent

Posted at Mon, Jun 29, 2020 12:00 AM

FCA continues to prove its commitment to our environment by promoting more innovations that reduce environmental impact. We see the latest updates through the new Global Warming Potential (GWP) analysis. In fact, the Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited lowered its GWP by 15 percent when compared to its predecessor. What does this mean for drivers near Potosi, MO?

Going Green with the Wrangler

Comparisons were made between the newest Wrangler models and the previous generation. The last generation featured a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with a five-speed automatic transmission. The new one used was equipped with a 270-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 motor with engine stop-start. With this system in place, the Wrangler can see a 14-metric-ton reduction of GHG emissions.

Furthermore, the 2020 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited features newer material choices. Ferrous metal content has been reduced from 68 percent to 54 percent, while non-ferrous metal content rose to twenty percent from 12 percent. The emissions saved from every 2.0-liter Wrangler Unlimited counteract the carbon sequestration of 16.5 acres of American forests for a year. 

Of course, this is just the start of how the new Wrangler models contribute to the well-being of our environment. FCA has worked hard to provide earth-saving measures across the board, making it the brand to drive near Festus, MO.
