For 2012, the Wrangler gets Chrysler’s fully contemporary Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6, a dual-overhead cam unit that features numerous advances in efficiency and noise reduction. Output jumps from 202 hp to 285 hp, and torque advances by about 10 percent, to 260 lb-ft. The 3.8’s best attribute was compactness, thanks to the low-profile overhead-valve layout. Squeezing the tall Pentastar V-6 under the hood was almost like getting Jay Leno jaw-first through the tiny door inside Alice’s Wonderland. Engineering chief Tony Petit lost a lot of sleep before adapting the powerplant with a revised throttle-body; a serpentine belt that would stay clear of water and mud; a high-mounted, rear-facing alternator; and unique exhausts. An acoustic cover helps to suppress noise.
