2019 Jeep Wrangler eTorque: The rugged Wrangler, electrified

On the outside, this is the same JL Wrangler that you know and love. However, there's a new and exciting eTorque mild-hybrid system hiding inside.

The Jeep Wrangler now comes with a mild-hybrid engine.

It's called eTorque, and it uses a 48-volt electrical system to smooth out engine operation.

The eTorque hardware is similar to the setup that's under the hood of the Ram 1500 eTorque, but mated to a smaller four-cylinder engine instead of a V6.

The eTorque system uses a traditional 12-volt lead-acid battery for the accessory and infotainment systems, but it is charged from the 48-volt system via a DC-to-DC converter, since there's no traditional alternator.

The combustion engine in question is a 2.0-liter, turbocharged I4 mated to the Wrangler's familiar four-wheel-drive system and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Along with the electric components, the Wrangler eTorque makes a combined 270 horsepower, which is just a bit less than the 3.6-liter V6's 285 ponies.

However, with its peak 295 combined pound-feet of torque, it bests the V6 by 35 lb-ft.

My four-door Wrangler eTorque Unlimited claims up to 22 combined miles per gallon, which breaks out to 22 city and 24 highway mpg. I'll save you a Google search -- that's 4 more miles per gallon in the city and 1 more on the highway than a comparably equipped Wrangler V6.

The mild-hybrid system doesn't hurt the Wrangler's off-road ability, either.
