    The following updates apply to the 2021 model year Jeep Wrangler:

    Engine
    • 2.0L with eTorque no longer available on Sport, Sport S, Sahara, or Rubicon. It may still be on the Recon--I can't tell--but I think it's reasonable to assume that it has been discontinued entirely since none of the major trims have it.
    • 3.6L with eTorque available across all trim levels.
    • Revised engine lineup that applies to all standard trims:
      • 6-speed manual - 3.6L non-eTorque V6 standard
      • 8-speed automatic - 2.0L non-eTorque 4-cylinder standard
      • 8-speed automatic - 3.6L eTorque V6 optional
      • 8-speed automatic - 3.0L EcoDiesel optional (except on 2-door models)
    Equipment
    • Full-time Selec-Trac 4WD system now available on Sport models.
    • Full-time Rock-Trac 4WD system now available on Rubicon.
    • Forward facing front camera now available on Sahara and Rubicon.
    • Technology group now standard on Sport S.
    • Selectable tire fill alert now standard on 7" touch screen.
    • Off Road Plus mode standard on all Rubicon models.

    In addition, Jeep has vastly reduced the number of available build combinations on the Renegade, Compass, Cherokee, and Grand Cherokee for 2021. Hooray for simplicity.

    Some minor updates for the Compass as well: High Altitude trim level is discontinued, there is no longer a manual transmission option, Sandstorm interior color is discontinued, and Jeep's safety suite is now standard on Limited and Trailhawk. I have a few more details if anyone is interested in specifics of what is included in that package.

    Looks like some options weren't very popular ...

    I wish they offered the Selec-Trac for Gladiator. It’s the one thing I wish i had sprung for on my Liberty.

    So does that mean there is only a black interior available now? I live in the south, and black interiors and dark cars make everything very hot. It is becoming hard to find an FCA vehicle that is not black, white, or grey or one with a light interior. Once upon a time the were many different color combinations. I feel we have been pushed into a black and white world. I would even go for that red velour of the K-cars.

    The Sandstorm interior is discontinued for the Sport. Other interior colors are still available on other trims.

    Shame the "regular" Pentastar is now only on the 6 speed Wranglers. Its a Wrangler...keep it simple.

    Also a shame the Compass manual is gone, although I expected that. It was about the only cute ute I'd ever consider, because a manual was still available...

    I was surprised they even offered a manual in the Compass at all.

    Full-Time Rock-Trac makes Rubicon more appealing for someone like me living with snowy winters.

    Full time? I thought Rock-Trac is a part time system?

    Yes, think of Selec-Trac but using Rubicon’s Rock-Trac 4:1 transfer case, instead of the 2.72:1.

    FCA has been offering this “Rubicon Selec-Trac” in overseas markets since JL launched in spring of 2018. Goes to show what a bunch of suckers it takes us for.

    Apparently, Selec-Trac is not offered on Gladiator at the moment. I’m sure it will be coming with the mid-cycle redesign.

    That’s a spin of what marketers have termed “planned obsolescence.”

    planned ob·so·les·cence
    /ˌpland ˌäbsəˈlesəns/

    noun
    • a policy of producing consumer goods that rapidly become obsolete and so require replacing, achieved by unnecessary changes in design, termination of the supply of spare parts, or the use of nondurable materials.

    Full time setting on the Rock-Trac t-case? Wow. That's a big deal.

    Looks like Sport is continuing to slide toward Sahara/Rubicon in terms of available options. As the gap continues to close between the trims, it more and more makes Sahara/Overland trims seem pointless to me. This is especially true on Gladiator, where the Overland trim has none of the work capability of the Sport and also none of the play capability of the Rubicon.

    I personally believe if the upcoming Bronco is a hot at all, it will be good for Wrangler buyers in the future. I think it needs more HP and TQ. Sounds like some of the engine offerings in the Ford may prompt them to address that. That much rumored inline six would be a huge asset in both Wrangler and Gladiator.

    It would be a good opportunity for Jeep to include features like the 8.4" screen, leather seats, heated seats, remote start, etc, as standard equipment on the Sahara and Overland to position them as more luxury-oriented trim levels.
