2012 Jeep Wrangler Real Gas Mileage: Pros

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

We are aware of the bad economy but seeing the WHOLE lineup has a new Pentastar V6 this is the last year for the old engine style. We luckily have another fuel efficient car so we will enjoy the ride and monitor the gas usage. see full Jeep Wrangler review
