Four Wheeler, a 4x4 authority since 1962, has selected the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon EcoDiesel as the winner of its 47th annual SUV of the Year award. 

 Four Wheeler’s SUV of the Year award event is an invitation-only competition that is only open to all-new or significantly revised SUVs for the upcoming model year. For 2020, the field of vehicles included three entries: Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 3.6L eTorque, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon EcoDiesel, and Land Rover Range Rover Sport MHEV 3.0L. 

“The Wrangler is a truly exceptional machine both on- and off-road, and the new-for-2020 EcoDiesel engine option compliments the outstanding JL platform,” said Four Wheeler Editor Ken Brubaker. “The EcoDiesel’s power and efficiency raise the bar for the already incomparable 4x4 making it even more extraordinary.”  

Scoring for the award included five weighted categories with 30 percent Trail Performance, 20 percent Empirical (RTI, acceleration, braking, price), 20 percent On Pavement (handling, ride quality, steering feel), 15 percent Interior (instrumentation, ingress and egress, seat comfort, storage), and 10 percent Exterior (appearance, stance, body protection).
