The Leader in Power and Capability

The Jeep® Wrangler stands distinctively alone as the original, iconic 4x4 off-road convertible. The 2016 Wrangler continues to distinguish itself with Best-in-Class capability, power and ground clearance23, due in part to the 3.6L PentastarTM VVT V6 – a three-time winner of Ward's '10 Best Engines' award.

3.6L Pentastar VVT V6 Engine

The legendary 3.6L PentastarTM VVT V6 engine with Best-in-Class 285 horsepower23 and an impressive 260 lb-ft of torque is in every Wrangler. 

Unique to this engine are an acoustic engine cover to reduce noise, optimized upper intake airflow for more torque, added equal-length downpipes to improve low- and mid-range torque response, and a high-mounted, rear-facing alternator for water fording2.


Enjoy refined shifting and gear selection with the available 5-speed automatic transmission. It helps the engine operate in a more efficient rpm range to improve fuel economy. The 6-speed manual transmission is standard on all models.
