British Wrangler CRD: 28 MPG

4x4 & MPV Driver magazine in England reports the combined city/highway mpg for the Wrangler Unlimited CRD is an astonishing 28.2 mpg! Diesel trucks are very popular with the pick up truck crowd, and as someone who commutes more than 70 miles a day in a Porsche Cayenne S, I'd gladly pay $5,000 more for the opportunity to have the CRD. As a loyal Jeep fan (1 Grand Wagoneer, 1 Cherokee, 3 Wranglers) I'd never have purchased my Porsche if the CRD Wrangler was an option, but now I may be a Porsche fan for life.

The information appears in an 9-page PDF article that pits the Wrangler CRD against the Land Rover Defender.
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 2.8 CRD Sahara is the resounding winner in this test. We thought is would be a much closer contest between this pair of iconic off-roaders. But it's clear that Jeep have done far more to make their new 4x4 appeal to a broader ranger of buyers, while retaining its core strengths of off-road ability and functional good looks.
