#18 of 91 Latest Response From DCX Regarding Diesel Wrangler models
May 10, 2006 (7:43 pm)
Below is part of the response. I wouldn't call it a "no" but it's pretty far from a yes.
"We are pleased to read of your interest in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler. This vehicle is expected to arrive in dealerships in the fall of 2006. At this time, DaimlerChrysler has not officially announced the pricing and full product specifications for the 2007 Jeep Wrangler models. More information should become available to us as well as being posted on the Jeep website closer to the official release date of the 2007 model. We encourage you to stay in contact with Jeep.com and your local Jeep dealership as further information becomes available.
At this time, DaimlerChrysler has not released any plans that indicate the future production of the Jeep Wrangler with the option of the 2.8L Common Rail Diesel engine for the North American market. However, with constantly shifting market trends I would hesitate to discount the possibility of new products on the horizon, specifically designed to suit your needs. Please feel free to check back with us or your local Jeep dealership periodically for future updates."

To all you guys, DCX is putting the Liberty 2.8 CRD in the Wrangler that is done! The question is will they put the Bluetec diesel in and when?

will they put the Blutec diesel in and when?
That is very doubtful. The MB V6 diesel blutec engine is only going into some pricey vehicles. It would be a lot of power for a Wrangler. It would be nice though. I would buy a Wrangler with any diesel option. No future plans to buy any gas powered vehicles. The last dealer I talked to in Boerne Texas told me they cannot keep the Liberty CRD on their lots. They get calls all the time for a Wrangler with the CRD.

Where do you get this information that a Diesel will be available in North America??. DC is making is clear that it will be only for export, with a possibility of it coming here in 2008 or beyond, and even that has not been confirmed.

I was told by a salesman at a Jeep dealership yesterday that the CRD wranglers are being made but only for export. To get one you would have to go across the Canadian border and buy it. He also said that it would void the factory warranty to own it here.
I told him I'd be planning a trip to Toronto because I'm not buying a wrangler of any kind that isn't a diesel.

I'm in Canada, and would love to get a Diesel, but I do believe when they say "export" they mean Europe and other places.
