The 2021 Jeep Wrangler is undoubtably the best off-road vehicle in its class, but it has the upcoming Ford Bronco to worry about.

The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 puts out 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque.

All that torque means the Wrangler can clamber up and over obstacles quite easily.

Where the gas-powered Wrangler might need four-wheel drive low, the diesel makes short work of things in 4WD high.

Jeep estimates a 500-mile driving range with a full tank of diesel.

With a 18.5-gallon fuel tank, that math equates to roughly 27 miles per gallon. Not too shabby.

Blind-spot monitoring can be customized to deliver a visual or audible warning, or both. Adaptive cruise control is on hand, as is forward-collision warning.

When the diesel-powered Wrangler hits dealers in December, it'll only be available on four-door Unlimited models, and you can't have it with the SUV's six-speed manual transmission.
