Phoenix Jeep Wrangler Drivers at Chapman Dodge Chrysler Jeep Praise New Engine and Transmission

Share Article

Chapman Dodge Chrysler Jeep offers the all-new 3.6-liter V-6 powertrain that provides more fuel efficiency, improved on-road driving dynamics and refinement, more power and torque – and even more legendary capability.

The all new 2012 Jeep Wrangler once again resets the benchmark and offers consumers the ultimate vehicle for any driving adventure.

Chapman Dodge Chrysler Jeep is proud to announce that the Jeep® Wrangler becomes even more capable both on and off-road for 2012, courtesy of an all-new, more fuel efficient and more powerful 3.6-liter V-6 engine, and a new five-speed automatic transmission – both of which it shares with the award-winning Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The all-new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 and five-speed automatic transmission dramatically enhance the Wrangler’s on-road driving performance – delivering up to 21 miles per gallon, 40 percent more power and 10 percent more torque – while also taking the vehicle’s legendary off-road capability to a new level.

The upgrades are sure to thrill Phoenix Jeep Wrangler owners who take their vehicles off-roading or to the high country.

“When some Wrangler drivers head north, hills tended to be an issue. In the new 2012 Wrangler, these hills can be climbed at the posted speed limits without any struggle. Before, there was a problem with constant down shifting and the need for higher RPMs to maintain speed,” said Chapman Dodge Chrysler Jeep Internet Manager Sharrod Stone.

Folks looking to increase their Wrangler tire size and vehicle height with aftermarket lifts are also catching a break.

“With the old model, Wrangler drivers had to change their axle gear ratio—at a cost of about $1400—to prevent major power loss and a drop in fuel economy. With the new Pentastar and five speed transmission it is not necessary,” said Stone.

The 2012 Jeep Wrangler is available at Chapman Dodge in 2-door starting around $23,700 and 4-door models for around $26,300. Both prices include air conditioning and destination charge. Each boasts a combination of efficient design, open-air freedom, significant towing capability, improved real-world drivability, and unique 4x4 systems that deliver unmatched off-road prowess. The Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited will continue to be available in four models: Sport, Sport S, Sahara and Rubicon.

The all new 2012 Jeep Wrangler once again resets the benchmark and offers consumers the ultimate vehicle for any driving adventure. Stop by Chapman Dodge or shop to experience the all new 2012 Jeep Wrangler.
