Jeep making a more efficient, mild hybrid Wrangler

Jeep has unveiled its 2018 Wrangler line-up, and alongside its traditional V6 option, the automaker will offer a turbocharged 4-cylinder powertrain with better EPA ratings than any previous Jeeps. For 2018, the turbo-4 is actually a mild hybrid, giving the model 22% lower fuel consumption than the previous year. The EPA has rated the model at 23/25/24 mpg for a 2-door, and 22/24/22 mpg for a 4-door.
