Jeep Wrangler 2021 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Jeep Wrangler here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Jeep Wrangler 2.8 Diesel Problems

    The 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine fitted to the Jeep Wrangler (and some Cherokee models) in the earlier part of this century seems to be a decent proposition in terms of reliability and ability to go the distance. The engine is made in Italy by VM Motori, a diesel engine specialist that was owned by Jeep’s parent company, Fiat Chrysler (as it was then).

    A large capacity four-cylinder engine, the basics seem well engineered and inherent problems are uncommon. As such, Jeep Wrangler 2.8 diesel problems are more likely to come from the engine’s ancillaries including the turbocharger unit, intercooler and some of the emissions-control equipment.

    Turbochargers have a shelf life in pretty much any vehicle and, depending on how hard a life the vehicle has had, these can require replacement when the bearings begin to wear or the internal components become damaged by carbon deposits.

    Intercoolers can fail over time, and the car’s emission controls, which see it consume a proportion of its own exhaust gases as well as its own crankcase fumes, can lead to black, sticky deposits in the intake system which can require manual cleaning.

    The engine is also a common-rail design, so injector and fuel-pump life can be shorter than for older, conventional diesel-engine designs.

    The key to any engine’s longevity, of course, is its service history. Even the best design will be a source of ongoing grief if a previous owner has not followed the correct servicing regime. A complete service history is an absolute must when buying any second-hand turbo-diesel.

  • How to lift a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited?

    Firstly, you need to consult an engineering signatory in your state to make sure it is legal to lift the suspension on your Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, as some states do not allow this modification and you can be fined and have your car defected off the road if caught by police. Lifting Jeeps often happens by installing taller springs, and placing taller blocks between the chassis and body. The legal heights of the suspension and lift blocks differ from state-to-state.

Jeep Wrangler 2021 Interior

It’s a snug practical space interior, that is comfortable and durable. Everything that should feel solid does (like grab handles), and all operational mechanisms (dials, knobs and switches) are easy to quickly locate with your eyes and, more importantly, swiftly operate while traversing all types of terrain.

Clever ideas, such as tensioned net pockets on the doors and in the seat-backs, and deep small-storage spaces with textured, grippy bases, abound.

Upfront there are USB ports, a 230V power outlet, directional air vents, and cup holders in the centre console.

With all seats in use, rear cargo space is rather shallow and really limited to only copping a few bags.
