If you’re thinking about starting 2020 out with a new vehicle, you’d better make sure it has all the technology it can offer. Technology is one of the most popular reasons consumers choose to splurge on a new vehicle. Even tougher vehicles like the 2020 Jeep Wrangler, which can handle some serious off-road adventures, come equipped with most of the auto industry’s latest technology. Let’s see what the 2020 Wrangler has to offer.
What’s exciting about the 2020 Jeep Wrangler?
As with every new year model, the Wrangler has a few new tricks up its sleeve in 2020. One of the most exciting is the addition of the turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine that gets you 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. While it’s a diesel engine, it’s able to get 29/22 mpg city/highway, for a combined average of 25 mpg. The perfect engine for those who love to do a little off-roading but hate how much you have to spend on gas to get where you’re going.
Like previous models, the 2020 Wrangler is one of the most versatile vehicles to hit the road. Six options are available for the roof in soft-top and hard-top versions, and all of the options are removable. The doors are also able to be removed, as well as the windshield, which is able to fold down. This versatility is what keeps Jeep-lovers coming back for more, giving them the freedom to create the adventure vehicle of their dreams.
All about that tech
The new Wrangler has so much to offer in terms of technology. One of the most-loved features for 2020 is the addition of Amazon Alexa compatibility. You are now able to connect your Amazon smart speaker to your Wrangler, giving you the ability to ask Alexa to check how much gas you have in the tank, start your vehicle, and even adjust the temperature settings all before you leave your home. This is something that really feel futuristic, and we’re there for it.
And, yes, the 2020 Wrangler does have Android Auto! This feature allows you to connect an Android smartphone to Jeep’s Uconnect system. You’ll be able to send and receive phone calls, listen to your music or audiobooks, and even view your calendar on your SUV’s 8.4-inch touchscreen. Activate the voice control setting and you’ll be able to control it all without worrying about using the touchscreen.
Additionally, the new Wrangler has an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, giving you and your passengers the freedom to use you smart devices without sucking your data plan dry on road trips. This hotspot has a 50-foot radius and is usable with up to eight devices. The Remote Vehicle Start allows you to start your Wrangler using your smartphone. You can even use the Send ‘n Go feature to find locations on your phone that you want to hit on your road trip, then send them directly to the Uconnect system, giving you perfect GPS navigation on your touchscreen.
Connectivity is king
Let’s face it, it’s a new decade and we’re rolling in with all the smart features as possible. Technology is meant to make our lives easier, and that clearly includes our lives on the road. The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is a great example of this. You’re able to have a powerful and versatile off-road vehicle that performs great on road trips, as well. Jeep knows how to keep people coming back for more. We may not have flying cars yet in this new decade, but this definitely has all the comforts and convenience we need.
