16 mpg city, 20 highway, automatic; 16/21 manual
Fuel efficiency is in all honesty a low priority to most people who would consider buying a Jeep Wrangler. Those who might still be looking at the EPA numbers need to consider that it's not a replacement for a crossover or other family vehicle--especially if you want to keep the fuel budget under control.
All of this is, of course, if you plan to do a long commute daily in the Wrangler. If it's the weekend off-road toy, or the backup vehicle, a city rating of 16 mpg could be much easier to stomach.And last year's engine transplant to the Wrangler did significantly boost its mileage, by up to 2 mpg.
The 2013 Wrangler is thirsty for a vehicle that has relatively little passenger space; but that might be forgivable if you're using all its trail ability.
