Jeep Wrangler details:
In Europe, the all-new 3. 6-liter petrol powertrain will be presented on Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport, Sahara and Rubicon versions starting November 2011.
Compact and lightweight, the all-aluminum 3. 6-liter Pentastar V-6 motor is more than 40 kg (90 lbs) lighter than the previous 3. 8-liter V-6 motor that was constructed with a cast-iron block. The Pentastar motor is extremely quiet, constructed with a high-pressure, die-cast aluminum block fitted with cast-iron bore liners and aluminum cylinder heads. The motor also has been developed to meet all known future worldwide emission standards and is currently Euro 5 certified.
The A580 automatic transmission benefits Jeep Wrangler as much as the new petrol motor, with more refined shifting and gear selection. By increasing the number of speeds, the transmission enables the motor to operate in a more efficient RPM range, which helps increase fuel efficiency. More speeds also allow the motor to remain in the torque curve, increasing acceleration. The new Jeep Wrangler (two-door) boasts a 37-percent improvement in 0 - 100 km/h time, which is now 8. 1 seconds. Also, a lower first-gear ratio in the new automatic transmission gives the Jeep Wrangler more off-road capability via a lower overall crawl ratio.
