The Jeep Wrangler JL is the sportier Wrangler model for drivers that want a Wrangler that can take them off-road on any adventure. The JL is about 200 pounds lighter than the JK and has styling that gives off a more aggressive vibe, like a sharper raked front grille and a rubber bump stop on the windshield that allows you to lower the windshield. This and a convertible option allow you to open up your Wrangler JL so that you can truly be one with nature. The Wrangler JK has more refined features to be more of an everyday-driver type of vehicle while still maintaining classic Jeep features and capabilities.
The Jeep Wrangler JK offers a standard 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine that is coupled with either a 5-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. The Wrangler JL also offers this engine, but has two additional engine options for drivers to choose from. The first is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and the second is a 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine. The JL also has an 8-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission option.
