For a vehicle with so little passenger capacity, the 2012 Jeep Wrangler uses a lot of fuel—though for those who truly use its trail capability regularly, it's forgivable.

Expert Quotes:

16 mpg city, 20 highway, automatic; 16/21 manual
U.S. EPA





The Wrangler isn't all that fuel-efficient, even compared to other truck-based utility vehicles; and with its EPA 16-mpg city rating, it could even be considered a guzzler and simply isn't a replacement for a crossover or other family vehicle if you want to keep your fuel budget (and use) down.

But that's of course if you plan to do a long commute in the Wrangler every day. Compared to most dedicated off-road vehicles, the Wrangler's gas mileage isn't all that much worse, though.

It should be noted that with the new Pentastar V-6, the Wrangler's ratings are up significantly this year—up one mpg in either the city or highway, and 2 mpg higher on the highway with the new automatic, to 16/21. 

Conclusion

For a vehicle with so little passenger capacity, the 2012 Jeep Wrangler uses a lot of fuel—though for those who truly use its trail capability regularly, it's forgivable.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
