Jeep Announces Final EcoDiesel Model 2023 Wrangler Rubicon FarOut
The automotive industry isn’t what it was for the last few decades. To think not long ago, alternative fuel sources and hybrids were so rare. With the shift towards more electrified sources for less carbon emissions that harm the planet, just about every automaker is making the shift. It’s not a bad thing, it’s actually really great. There are consumers, however, that may want to hold onto what they know, and that’s why many well-known automakers are releasing limited-edition models as a sendoff for some favorites. These include the last 2023 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, the Dodge “Last Call” models, and now, the 2023 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon FarOut Limited-edition model, marking the end of EcoDiesel production.
Even saying it feels wrong. We’ve all known EcoDiesel for so long, it’s sad to see it go. When it powered the 2020 Wrangler Rubicon, it showed the world what a Wrangler can do, delivering 442 lb-ft of torque. Branching out, the Rubicon 392 came out with a notable 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, and as a testament to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), the Wrangler Rubicon 4xe delivered 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of instant torque. Still, the change is final…for the Wrangler, anyways.
There are some gasoline powertrain options available for the Jeep Wrangler, such as the 2.0-liter turbo, 3.6-liter V6, 6.4-liter V8, and there’s always the 4xe plug-in hybrid option for those wanting to go a little green. For consumers who can’t say goodbye just yet, the Jeep Gladiator pickup truck will still offer the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 powertrain option in addition to the regular 6 configuration.
“At Jeep, we are always listening to our customers and driven to improve on our legendary 4×4 capability…The Wrangler Rubicon FarOut special edition is our tip of the hat to the EcoDiesel technology on Wrangler.” – Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler FarOut edition comes standard with many great features, ranging from appearance changes to comfort. On the exterior, the hood dons a “Diesel 3.0L” graphic, and exclusive “3.0 D” badging, and the fender flares for extra attitude and a satin black grille. This is all rides on 17-inch aluminum wheels. Inside, the interior floor comes with all-weather floor mats and black leather seats with red accent. Additions include equipment from the Cold Weather Group, Trailer-Tow and Heavy-Duty Electrical Group, Safety Group, and LED Lighting Group.
Added capability is also featured in the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon FarOut edition, with third-generation Dana 44 front and rear heavy-duty axles. Offering a 3.73 axle ratio and the Rock-Trac two-speed transfer case with a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio, consumers can experience a whole lot of control and torque when driving across the most unlikely terrain.
