Jeeps are good for day-to-day driving and off-road trips, but how fuel-efficient they actually are? Let’s see. We selected all Jeep models currently on sale and listed them from worst to best regarding their gas mileage.
Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT
The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT may have the look of an SUV but, actually, it is a sports car, big and fearsome. That’s why it is virtually the opposite of the fuel efficiency.
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is the ultimate off-road SUV for driving on any terrain. Unfortunately, it has a rather poor fuel economy. It is not even closely as fuel-efficient as some Range Rovers.
The smaller Jeep Wrangler is slightly more fuel-effective in city driving than the bigger Unlimited version. Just because it’s lighter.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
The standard Jeep Grand Cherokee without SRT package has an adequate fuel consumption for a mid-size/full-size SUV. Somewhere near the average, probably.
The Jeep Cherokee has nearly the same MPG as the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The only difference is slightly better fuel consumption on the highway.
The smaller SUV – the better fuel consumption. This ‘statement’ is especially true for Jeep’s modern lineup where the tendency is clearly visible.
The Jeep Compass and the Jeep Patriot differ only in design; they are identical mechanically. And thus, they have the same fuel consumption. Not great, but sufficient for most buyers.
The most fuel-efficient Jeep is also the smallest and the newest one. The Jeep Renegade benefits from being small in many ways including the reduced fuel consumption in comparison with other Jeeps.
