    Default 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited



    Great writeup on the Jeep for you offroad lovers.

    The modern Jeep Wrangler body style was first introduced in 2007, and this updated platform revitalized the brand. Jeep has long had a loyal, hard-core following among off-roaders and outdoor enthusiasts, but with the introduction of the four-door Wrangler, code named JK for the current Wrangler body style, the truck went from being a fun weekend vehicle to an SUV capable of fitting the whole family.

    ENGINE OVERHAUL FOR 2012

    In 2012, the Wrangler overhaul is completed with a new, more powerful engine that is more efficient than its predecessor.
    The new 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine found on the 2012 Jeep Wrangler produces 285-hp, a significant jump compared to the 202-horsepower generated by the previous engine. Along with that 40 percent increase in power is a 10 percent hike in torque to 260 lb-ft.
    First introduced in the 2011 Grand Cherokee, this engine only required a different intake manifold and oil pan to adapt it to the 2012 Wrangler. Jeep engineers also replaced the four-speed transmission and fitted a new five-speed unit, with the added gear allowing for more refined shifting and gear selection in a more fuel-efficient rpm range. Off-roaders will also appreciate the lower first-gear ratio that allows the new automatic transmission to have a lower crawl ratio in off-road situations. Depending upon the model, gear ratios are available in 3.21, 3.73 and 4.10.

    Fuel is too much an issue these days... espicially with the Iran problems that can blow up in any given second

    This thing cries for a Diesel.
