Best Oil Brands and Filters for Jeep Wrangler

June 26th, 2017 by

Changing the engine oil in your vehicle, no matter what the make and model, is essential. It should be done every three months or 3,000 miles, whichever comes first. The more you keep the oil in your SUV clean, the longer and smoother the vehicle will ride.
Getting your oil changed is inexpensive, fast, and easy, and it should never be overlooked as it’s every bit as vital as keeping your brakes in good shape. In fact, the Jeep Wrangler makes oil changes so easy that you can do them yourself!

Of course, if you’re not comfortable doing that, your local Jeep dealership is happy to handle your Randolph, Stoughton, or Brockton area oil changes at a low cost.

Here’s a look at the best oil brands and filters for your 2016 Jeep Wrangler and a talk about conventional vs. synthetic oil.

Best Oil Brands for Jeep Wrangler

Ask any 12 mechanics and vehicle owners which is the best oil brand to use in your car, and you’ll likely get eight or nine different answers. Your choice of oil for your 2016 Jeep Wrangler is exceptionally subjective. There are a number of high-quality and well-regarded oils on the market, including Exxon, Pennzoil, Valvoline, and Mobil. All of these have a legacy of excellent and reliable performance.

Synthetic vs. Regular Oil: Which Is Better for My Wrangler?

Over the past couple of decades, synthetic oil has come on the market as a viable replacement for natural oil. This can be attractive to those looking for both high performance and an environmentally friendly approach.
Conventional oil is, by its nature, impure no matter how well-filtered it is, but synthetic oil has a solid molecular consistency that ensures it’s 100% pure in the way it functions and its quality. It’s also less likely to thicken in the engine, and it’s highly resistant to shearing and breakdown.

On the downside, synthetic oils cost a bit more than conventional ones, and there are a lot of myths and misinformation about synthetics that can lead to adamant campaigns against its use. In the end, it’s largely a matter of preference and if you’re comfortable with synthetics, as they carry a number of advantages. For your Jeep Wrangler, just make sure that the oil you use meets MS-6395 certification.
