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

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

My 412 hp Mustang gets far better mileage than the 202 hp Jeep. What is wrong with that picture? 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
