JL 2.0 turbo. Just got mine
Well I must say it was a present surprise. More power much quieter better Millage.. I guess I am not as knolegable as I once was as I never realized the new turbo was a hybrid. A mild hybrid but a hybrid just the same. The electric motor is located top front motor and hooks to the drive belt. That way it is used to help restart the engine.from start stop mode. In the 3.6 start stop was annoying. Noticeable stop and very noticeable restart. Well none of that in the turbo. Have to watch the tach to tell you hav estoppel and startup just happens. No noise nothing. Just power on like “it was electric”. Which it is. Still not sure how all this extra stuff will function in HEAVY off reading. I.e. rock crawling. But for daily driving it is great.
