Anyone have their 2012 Wrangler Unlimited?..........

Just curious what your gas mileage is?
We are thinking of getting one. I already have a 2012 GC and wanted to see how the gas mileage of the 2012 Wrangler unlimited is compared to the GC

I have a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited, Manual transmission and 3.73 axles. I am getting 21 City and 22-23 on The highway. I do mostly city driving and have 3500 miles on the vehicle with about 400-500 highway.

Re: Anyone have their 2012 Wrangler Unlimited?..........

Have had mine for about 3 weeks. A Sahara with the 5-speed automatic. So far averaging 19.273 of city (rural highway) driving. The 2008 6-speed averaged 18.861 mpg from April 2008 til I traded it.

Took a test run with the 1800# camper behind it from Denver over the Continental Divide (11500') to Vail and back. Got 15.909 mpg which is lower than the 2008 which averaged 18.551 while towing over the same route. The additional power and lack of constant downshifting and very slow speeds when pulling the mountains in the 2008 is a great offset. The 2012 easily maintained 50 mph in 3rd gear when the 2008 would drop down to about 25 and shifting down to 2nd or 3rd gear.
