dominate the trails in your used Jeep Wrangler.

The Right Jeep Engine

You’ll find one of a number of engines in the used Jeep Wrangler you choose, and there might be a perfect engine for you depending on what you plan to do with your Jeep.

The Legendary Inline Six

Many lifted Jeep Wranglers built for 2006 or earlier have the legendary 4.0-liter I6 that was originally developed by AMC. This engine received upgrades over the years, but at its core remained basically the same. It featured tough, low-end torque perfect for digging deep on muddy trails.

Modern V6 Jeeps

After 2006 Jeep finally developed a fitting replacement for the inline six. The efficient V6 Pentastar engines provide horsepower and torque with modern fuel economy and a road-trip friendly sound and feel. For 2015, the 3.6-liter V6 makes 260 lb.-ft. of torque and 285 horsepower. This engine is a great choice for those who want a reliable, versatile Jeep that is equally at home on the trail or commuting into the city.

Lifted Jeeps with a V8

Occasionally you’ll find a lifted Jeep with a V8, but these are almost always custom retrofits. While a big V8 looks and sounds impressive, they’re not the top choice of lifted Jeep owners who plan to spend time in the mud, dirt and gravel. The six-cylinder engines provide a perfect balance of power and relatively lightweight for maximum traction and climbing strength.

We hope this helps in your search for the right used Jeep Wrangler. Even with all of the big lifted trucks for sale on our lot, there’s just something special about a Jeep. These vehicles are purpose-built and meant for people who want to do more than cruise the highways.
