Re: 2015 Wrangler Information Thread

Re: 2015 Wrangler Information Thread

DI stands for Direct Injection (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gasoline_direct_injection). One of the ways to get slightly lower emissions and slightly more millage, but at a cost of complexity. ...

Re: 2015 Wrangler Information Thread

1) Just to emphasize, only if you order/pay for the option. They are not standard on any model.

5) True, the 4 door has 2 on US models. But there are 3 on export models.
