In fact, if you look right here, sport model two door: 28 295 is a starting price for the base base. Wrangler and this hasn't changed since previous 2020 model year. How does it compare against one of its upcoming competitors for 2021? Well, it has to be this. The base ford bronco at twenty eight thousand five hundred dollars right here for a two door – very very base bronco. So yes um, they are priced very competitively, but jeep undercuts it by about 200 bucks, uh let's keep going so four door starts at 31 795 and now you have up to nine yep nine, very specific trim levels. So, of course you have the sport. You have your wheelies sport, your sport s, with some additional option. You release in this nice green color, which i love. Then your altitude model it's a little bit more luxurious. A little bit more sporty. Sahara is kind of a still the luxury model that's available. Still, of course, rubicon altitude i mean sahara, altitude, i'm, sorry and then high altitude and high altitude, of course, is available only in four doors. But this is the most luxurious tram and it's. This unique one for 2021 starting at 49.995, so 50 000 bucks with a base setup right there. So uh let's take a look at the four door sport and actually see what's. What and exactly what engine options are available. Um, so first uh white collar is kind of free of charge, there's still another eight colors, which are actually cost money.
Let'S pick yellow 245 bucks, this one costs and let's just look at powertrains because that's what i always want to know what's different what's, changing what's. Staying the same, you have to scroll a long way until you get to this four engine options. Like i guys, i told you and it's good to see that it's actually available in a sport trim, so you don't have to buy those most expensive trims to actually get options which is really cool, so the v6, the gas 3.6 liter pentastar. Still there still the same power rating it's available with a six speed manual to start, which is really great to see. If you want a manual transmission, it's still available very very nice, you can also choose for 1500 bucks. An 8 speed automatic basically similar to before, or you can choose a two liter turbocharged four cylinder engine and we've had actually a similar engine to this uh. We actually purchased a four door, jeep wrangler rubicon about a year and a half ago we had a 2 liter e torque. This has started up, but no e torque on this particular model and, of course, you're probably wondering about the plug in the plug in is not yet available on the configurator that 4 by e wrangler is not here yet we don't know exactly what it will cost. Then the 2 liter is only available in automatic okay, so you do have to pay 1500 bucks. For that, then there is this another engine option, which is a gas engine v6 once again: 3.
6 liter, but now with e torque. So what does e torque give you? This is basically an electric motor that's in front of the engine right here, and it gives you start stop very smooth capability. It gives you kind of smooth gear shifts because it kind of fills in some of those torque and power when the gas engine kind of lags down and gives you supposed to give you just an overall smoother experience. Uh. I haven't driven this engine in the wrangler. Yet but i have driven it in a ram 1500 truck with different power ratings, so that engine is available in multiple vehicles. Finally, for 4 500 bucks, you can get a diesel 3 liter eco diesel, v6 turbo diesel engine also has start. Stop only comes with a 8 speed automatic it's, a little bit more heavy duty, but it's the same price. Okay, now you're, probably wondering okay that's a lot of options, but how do they match up on fuel efficiency? So let's take a look at the fuel, economy.gov epa site and once again there's a lot of different numbers here. But but what i wanted to show you is first is the manual transmission manual transmission jeep, with the v6 gas is rated 17 city, 25 highways. So, actually pretty good on the highway 20 combined, but it's the lowest rating for the fuel efficiency. Next up is the two liter 8 speed, auto gas engine, much better in the city 21 in the city, 24, highway 22 combined, so that's, pretty good and turbocharging really helps you get that low end torque, which is really great.
Then you also have a three liter diesel, eight speed, um and – and this is uh for the rubicon specifically – and you see the rubicon – is rated at 21 city 26 high by 23 combined. But if you don't get the rubicon diesel, if you get a a basic or more basic or another trim of their wrangler, the maximum fuel efficiency goes up to 29 on the highway and 25 combined. So still four wheel drive. You can get really good fuel efficiency with that diesel and we've shown you. We have several reviews on tflcar.com and tfl car youtube, channel and tfl offroad to show you how quick the new diesel engine is and actually how it performs in the real world, even when towing a trailer. Yes, we towed a small trailer with a wrangler which was under 3 500 pounds so um. What are some of the other changes uh before i show you kind of the most expensive jeep let's take a look at what's new for 2021., so i already went over the engines it's right here, um here's, some of the really interesting stuff trail cam, is now Available so trail, cam is uh. This fourth facing camera – sorry, that comes along with an 8.4 inch touchscreen system and it kind of was available on the gladiator pickup truck as well, but it's very helpful when you're actually off roading, especially if you have like a two inch, lift or bigger tires.
And you want to see what's ahead of you or even for parking situations. Um trail cam forward facing camera is really interesting. It'S really helpful. It is an option for extra cost. There is also 80th anniversary edition and islander jeep editions coming out soon. They have special colors special wheel options. 18 inch wheels, there's, also off road plus mode. So if you remember, when the gladiator was launched, they offered this little button on the dash which was uh set offroad plus and basically it adjusts throttle transmissions, shift points and traction control system for um. You know different off road conditions, so, where you can it allows you more wheel, slip um, you can go you, you know you can go faster in the dunes, etc, etc. So different capability in four high or four low, so off road plus mode, is basically software tuning for the new wrangler, of course select track. Two speed transfer case. The 272 1 low range is available on sport models and then 4 1, obviously still available on on rubicons and then tire fill alert. Basically, when you're airing up your tires, you can set the jeep and it will actually warn you by a honk when you're, actually back up at appropriate pressures, tire pressures which is of some other vehicle. Many other vehicles have this feature too, but it's good to have so to kind of round out this look at the configurator. I wanted to show you this new high altitude edition, because it's kind of intriguing by the way there is no uh mojave a wrangler.
I was thinking maybe a mojave wrangler is going to be available for 2021. Not yet, and of course rubicon is your rock crawler lockers front and rear disconnectable front sway. Bar pricing remains mostly the same it's available as a two door or four door, so that's still available, but the mojave is like a desert runner version of the gladiator. Well wrangler does not have that option it might in the future. I don't know, but let's take a look at this high altitude model. It comes with 20 inch wheels. Let me select the white color because it kind of shows off some of the features a little bit better body, color everything, grille fenders, bumpers, roof. Everything is looks very premium painted uh 20 inch wheels, which is kind of odd for me to see on the wrangler. But if you like this type of style, more of a kind of a city, type jeep, it's, available and let's kind of configure this one and see what we can get integrated off road camera 595. Bucks for that front camera. But i think it's worth it, especially in tight situations off road or on road. You can get a more beefy rear hinge gate by mopar. So if you have a larger tire wheel combination, you can get an upgrade for your hinges, so they can carry more weight. You can get a dual top group, of course, so you can get a soft top option as well.
You can also have a sun bonnet top different top options. Yes, why don't? I just add that so i have we have options black special stitching seats. This is for the high altitude edition and you can see the stitching also shows up on the steering wheel and throughout the interior. This looks like an automatic, so it's, probably already a v6 advanced safety group. Adaptive cruise control, yes got ta, have it trailer towing? Well, usually, wrangler's not known for towing, but it's, really good to have a hitch receiver and be prepared to tow up to 3 500 pounds, no matter which engine you have it's, basically, the same rating for a four door: wrangler cold weather group, it's a must, especially For us in colorado with heated front seats and heated steering wheel, but i think this should be maybe rolled into that package. I don't know i mean anyway, three engine options for this one, so the 2 liter turbo to start that's. What this jeep is already configured that with 56 thousand dollars, of course, let's kind of get the most premium model i'm gon na select the diesel, which adds about forty five hundred dollars already rare differential, well yeah. Of course this is a jeep. The diesel comes with a 373, not a 410 rear axle ratio, because there's so much torque built into this system already. So there is no issue putting it down, so i think they specifically give you a different ratio and also with a mind for fuel efficiency that helps let's see.
Can i select this full time transfer case no, not with a diesel. Of course, the diesel produces 260 horsepower and 442 pound feet of torque and we've tested it's, very quick, very quick for a diesel powered vehicle, especially for a four wheel, drive and a large and pretty heavy vehicle, as well. So without selecting every option um, i got this jeep to about 59 965 about 60 grand. Of course you can add more and more and more and more and push this price over 60. 000 as well. Excuse me, but what do you? Let me know in the comments below what do you think of this new high altitude, with kind of that monochromatic look, um and, of course, led lights are included in that price, so guys um that's about it. For this video um i'm told by our local dealer, john cenata plaza that the diesel versions of the wranglers are already in route, so you can probably go to your dealership nearby and actually get a diesel powered wrangler. If you want the four by e plugins are not orderable yet according to our local dealer. So even though jeep said they're going to be available by the end of this year, calendar year 2020, you can't quite order them quite yet that's. What i was told today, but there's still so much options and when the plug in comes you're, going to have five powertrain options, which is kind of mind, boggling and that's.
Why it's so fun for us to test all of them and tell you exactly what to expect go back to tflcar.com and tflapra.
