I have a 2020 TH 2.0 Turbo and get 15 mpg in the city, maybe 20-22 highway.
Wow, I can average 22-24 with my 2.0T. The best I've done is 27 on a trip to California running around 80mph most of the time, and that was determined the old fashioned way, miles 梅 gallons. That was before I lifted it, and went up to 245/70/17's, but I really haven't lost much, I still easily get 25 on long highway road trips...馃槑

Not ones that can do this, a single tank of fuel (64L)

The only Wrangler that makes sense to me is the 4xe. If I was to get a Wrangler 4xe would be my choice. In fact, I鈥檓 trying to talk my dad into picking one up as a retirement present to himself (gotta convince him to retire first lol). He has always loved Wranglers and currently has an old, beat up, raggedy, 94 4cyl Wrangler as his little run around town beater.

Wranglers actually ride fairly well when new, and with new tires, but with your typical half worn tires they'll beat you up on the highway.
That, and the comfort features are a little sparse. The Cherokee, on the other hand, is pretty posh considering its capabilities.
I was tempted by a Wrangler, as there is nothing more capable that a Rubicon right out of the box, but after I thought it through, I'd be hating life after a while on the highway. I'm definitely too old for that.
Every Jeep I've owned rides better with new tread. :cool:

Nice! Goodyears right?馃槂馃槂 what鈥檚 the price of it, roughly?
Do they even make 40" Duratracs??? I guess it would cost the same as it does to build yours, minus the overall price difference of 4xe and the regular Rubicon itself...馃槑

All of those things that you listed, and the main one being, I didn't want something that drives like an old dump truck that you can't haul dirt in with with the JLU and Gladiators highway manners. For something more capable, and for that price range, I would probably outfit a Raptor. My Trailhawk is a "Cowboy Cadillac", and that's what I love about it, and plenty capable, yet comfortable...馃槑

This is why I have the 2019 TH Overland. Every avail option in it. All the comforts and goes like crazy when ya want it.

The overland is a great option! It was actually my first choice but as you said very hard to find and almost as pricey as the TH, so I bought the the TH because of ability. Glad I did the way me and the wife off it! Happy Jeeping 馃槂

That has to be an achievement, the lowest I have ever gotten is 21 city. Granted mine is not a TH, but sheesh 15 is atrocious. I can easily get 30+ on the interstate keeping it at 80 mph and even using passing gear occasionally.

Let's see solid proof calculated you are getting 30mpg at 80mph, that's not really that likely at all

Of course, here comes the hot head. It鈥檚 very likely and consistent. I don鈥檛 go by the trip computer (it tends to be off by 2-3 mpg) I go by a very basic method of taking the miles traveled and dividing that by how many gallons was used. That鈥檚 certainly a very accurate measure, more so than a trip computer. I don鈥檛 save my receipts or have some database to store this information. I just glance at the pump and use my calculator and I go about my day. It鈥檚 really not difficult, and I have managed it numerous times, but to each their own. It鈥檚 very likely considering I had no hiccups in traffic like accidents, road work, etc. The LOWEST I have gotten on the interstate is 29 mpg. I鈥檓 not here to argue, if you don鈥檛 believe it鈥攃arry on? Some things to consider is I am always sure that the air filter is clean (I tend to replace it earlier than the recommended interval), proper tire inflation, and I never go over on oil changes. I have always used 91-93 octane as I have the 2.0T. Not necessary, but that鈥檚 just my preference. A clean engine is a happy one. I never have crossbars on it either, and very seldom do I have it fully loaded. Surely it鈥檚 not something to cause you to lose sleep at night. I鈥檓 not bluffing, nor am I stupid, and I鈥檓 not someone to say something completely idiotic. Lol

There鈥檚 plenty of people that get above the EPA estimates, it鈥檚 not really anything extraordinary鈥

Again, why don't you take a video going 80mph and show the real time fuel economy gauge, surely it would show 30mpg or so right,

I'm a hot head because I like facts and data.........yup I guess i'm a hot head.

You do you but just know that Octane isn't there to increase fuel mileage it's there to prevent detonation
