What is this discussion about?
#78 of 91 Diesels for Europe but Bollucks to the USA
Jul 09, 2008 (5:00 pm)
Okay just FYI, the 3 yr hybrid battery life thing is total bullsh1t.
Anyway, here's my real point. I need a new car now. I don't want to wait 3 years to get what I need/want. Or to buy a car now that still leaves me feeling like the little guy in prison then have to take Big Mike's lovin again in 3 years when American car makers finally decide to stop jamming us.
Jeep 2007 Eco 4x4 of the year in Europe per their own UK site, not even available here. Go MOPAR!
My 2 pennies.

After owning a '92 YJ and a '00 TJ, I would purchase a diesel Wrangler variant. I have sent a few e-mails to DC asking about US availability of such a vehicle, and received the typical corporate/political beat-around-the-bush BS answers. It is no wonder that Chrysler is circling the drain. They don't offer products that people want, and don't care to listen to customers. People want real changes, not free doo-dad's or gimmicks. If a CRD engine has been successfully engineered into the JK/J8 for the European/African market, then don't reinvent the wheel, just make it meet EPA and DOT specs and get it to market. They also need to ensure that Dealerships/Service Centers straighten up and fly right. Today, nobody has the spare time or money to deal with less than excellent customer service. Not free coffee or news papers, just fix the problem right the first time, no BS. End of rant.

I spend approx 2 hours in rush hour everyday. I am also interested in Jeep Rubicon so that i can spend my weekends outdoor. Only if Jeep Rubicon had a Diesel engine I would have definitely bought one. My other alternative is buy a Jeep for the weekends and keep my 4 Cyl for weekdays but the problem is I don't want to keep 2 cars because of various reasons, insurance being one (BC, Canada).
So Jeep people, if you are reading this (in case you didn't know), there is a huge market out there for Diesel engines and Jeeps. So if you combine the two guess what do you get? LOTS OF REVENUE. So put one Cherokee Diesel engine in Wrangler or Rubicon too.

here is an article I found on Mopar working on a diesel in a box. Even if it has to come from Mopar and I have to pay someone to put it in for me it is certainly worth it. I would really like to see the 2010 Wrangler that is an EV have diesel with the EV (electric vehicle)

I've been waiting for Jeep to offer a diesel in their production wrangler line for many years. Of course there was the brief GC offering, but was largely ignored by management (not the public).
There are many ways for Jeep to outfit a diesel into the Jeep lineup. Most economical would be to go with a proven diesel engine builder like they do with their Ram HD lineup - Cummins.
I have owned several diesels over the last few decades, including my current VW Jetta TDI and Ram 2500HD QC Diesel, and formerly a F250HD PSD. I'll never own a gasoline car again. VW is on track with it's TDI expansion. Of all the alternative gas fuels out there, Diesel is the only one already in place for mass delivery to consumers. It would take decades and billions of tax dollars to get many of the proposed other alternative fuel delivery systems in place.
Let's go Jeep, get diesels in your vehicles already! If Jeep could put a Wrangler with a factory diesel on that sad looking Dodge/Jeep lot tomorrow, I'd buy one in an instant.
#86 of 91 UK availability

The really ironic and frustrating thing is that if you buy a Jeep in the UK, the only Wrangler engine available is a diesel.

I live on reservation land in NY, as I listen outside my people are chanting: We want rubicon diesel, we want rubicon diesel, we want rubicon diesel!
So Jeep we beg of you, the US government has taken our land, our pride, and our horses but please Jeep you can at least give us a rubicon diesel!
