TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Jeep Wrangler

Jeep Wrangler Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
2011 Heavy and far from aerodynamic, the Jeep Wrangler doesn't earn impressive EPA fuel economy ratings: 17 mpg city, 21 mpg highway. In the suburbs I could only get the average mpg readout to top 20 if I was very easy on the pedals. In most of my suburban driving the trip computer reported averages around 16. The 4Runner's EPA ratings are no better. Its trip computer averages were two-to-three mpg higher, but some or even most of this advantage could have been due to summer weather. see full Jeep Wrangler review

Compared to my 2001 TJ Jeep Wrangler which got around 11 to 13 MPG, the 15-17 city and 18/21 highway are quite the improvement, especially since it is a longer/heavier 4-door model. At the worst, I've gotten 13 MPG in stop and go driving and 15 on the highway in very strong headwinds. The flip side; the best I've gotten in-city is 18 MPG and an impressive 28 MPG with a tailwind from Colorado to Texas! Overall, for driving what is basically shaped like a brick on the road; the fuel economy for my Jeep I feel is rather impressive. see full Jeep Wrangler review

Being a true SUV, and as heavy as it is, fuel economy is not the best. However, I knowingly traded my 2010 Ford Mustang that got decent fuel economy in for this Jeep Wrangler that I knew got bad fuel economy because I wanted and needed an all season vehicle. Although my fuel economy hovers around 14 mpg, I don't regret my decision. see full Jeep Wrangler review

Although its to be expected from a Wrangler, you should be able to get more than 15-17 mpg from a vehicle today. see full Jeep Wrangler review

Most people who drove or owned xterra, complain about fuel economy. I say bs: compare it with its true, truck-based SUV competitors - and there are only 3 of them: toyota 4runner and fj cruiser, and jeep wrangler rubicon. Thats all! All others are not to be compared to xterra - they are just car-based SUVs (even new nissan pathfinder is just a car!).rnWhen you compare xterra with correct competitors, you will find that its fuel economy is excellent: my trip computer and calculations show the best economy of 10.3 l/100km on highway at 95 km/h without aircon, on cruise control, on a warm day. My worst is 19.3 l/100km during heavy winter offroading through 3 feet of snow (and it was quite wet snow), using 4x4 low with lockers. From my comparis see full Nissan Xterra review

I don't see how the fuel economy could be improved, given what the vehicle is. But I can't say that I am happy with the poor fuel economy. see full Nissan Xterra review

Fuel economy is not the best, I average around 15-16 in the city and 18-20 on the highway. see full Nissan Xterra review

Although the 2005+ gets better fuel economy than the previous incarnation, it won't compete with the light weight car-based CUVs on the market. If you want the strong chassis and off road performance you will feel it at the pump. Off road modifications like extra armor, dual spare tires, larger tires, and gear don't help either. see full Nissan Xterra review

Mileage is terrible for an engine of this size and power output. see full Nissan Xterra review
