4cyl - auto - jeep wrangler

I've always had an eye for the jeep wranglers, but am not very knowledgeable when it comes to finding the right one for myself, but what I do know is that I am looking for a 4 cylinder, automatic jeep wrangler, now I've been hunting for one but am having no luck at all. I was wondering if ya'll jeep junkies could help me out on what models have 4 cyl- auto jeep wrangz. btw, this is my very fist purchase of a car, looking to spend about 10k at most.

Welcome to the Forum!

What range of model year Wranglers are you considering?

well I was looking up on the SE which stats they stopped production at 2006, at least that's what I seen on a certain site that had these jeeps for sale, only downfall was that it wasn't a Canadian buy/sell site, was US, and im not so shure I want to ship a car over, but will if I have no other choice.

but to answer your question, 2004-2008

I'm pretty sure 2006 is the last year they made 4 cylinder jeeps

I guess it would be nice to have the 2006 as it is the last year of production. I am trying to find the models that do have my specifications because it will make it easier for me to find, as ive been looking aimlessly through many jeep wranglers and havent come across any jeeps with 4cyl-auto. I also called a dealership and the receptionist didnt even know they existed lol.

You might want to read the wikipedia article on Wranglers, that talks about what engines/trans are available, changes over the years, etc.. That should get you a decent overview I think.

OH yeah, if you're looking for a 4cyl for better fuel mileage, you may be disappointed.. in particular with an automatic trans...

I'm not sure if there is an auto for the 2.4 (03-06 I think) but the 2.5 (97-02 TJ) definitely does a buddy bought one a few years back and sank it. The 2.5 is also more reliable from what I've seen.

Is there any particular reason you want a 4 cyl. The gas mileage is not really any better than the 6.

If you want an auto get a 6cly period. 5spd is fine in the 4cly...thus over all if you have the money look for a 6cly.. life will be much nicer.

4 cylinder jeeps are not rare at all, and as far as value goes 4.0s will hold their value better.

well i am having a hard time finding one, lol. I wanted some opinions on those who have had the experience of the 4cylinders, but I am set on the 4cyl - manual. Seems like something ideal for me.
