What’s the Difference Between Wrangler JK and Wrangler JL?

May 11th, 2018 by


Jeep Wrangler is a name synonymous with off-roading, making it an obvious choice when it comes time to choose a vehicle for your next action-packed Del Rio adventure, but which is better, the Wrangler JL or Wrangler JK? You’ll have to decide for yourself, but Cecil Atkission Motors Uvalde can help.

The outgoing version of the Jeep Wrangler, dubbed the Wrangler JK, has a lot to recommend for drives around Eagle Pass or to Comanche Lake, including:

  • 3.6L Pentastar V6 Engine
  • Six-Speed Manual or Five-Speed Automatic Transmission
  • Wrangler Unlimited 4-Door Trim
  • 2,000 Pounds Towing Capacity

For the newest addition to the Jeep Wrangler lineup, the automaker has made some equipment adjustments that should excite Crystal City desert warriors, including:

  • Six-Speed Manual of Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission
  • Electronic Start/Stop Technology Standard
  • 2.0L 4-Cylinder Engine Option
  • 3.0L Turbodiesel Engine Option (Future Release)
  • Lighter Body and Frame
  • Unlimited Moniker Dropped
