Maybe.
My brother-in-law has a 1.5L turbo diesel F-1000 pickup (Brazilian version of the F-150). It impressed me with its ability around the farm; he's got 14,000 acres in central Brazil and not a paved road for miles.

Diesels are amazing little torque monsters.

They've said that all along, just not in the US.

^ yeh they have said the wrangler is getting a new diesel all along but unless it said that they are going to put it in the wranglers for the US specifically im not convinced... shoot you can get a diesel right now if you fly over to the UK and buy one at the dealership then ship it back and pay a bunch of customs and redtape...

The Euro-market JK DOES have a diesel option.
Chances of it making it to the U.S.? Same as the chances of me becoming a Victoria's Secret cover girl- NONE Mark W.

sounds like a mastercard but backwards:

stock JK wrangler - $2100
2.0L disel option - $3000
not sending them to the US - priceless

i think you would make a FINE VS model as long as you stay in the jeep and fully clothed and have an actual hot model in the passenger seat...

The Audi diesel backed by a 6 speed is fantastic.

No diesel JK's in Canada. Emission regulations is the reason. Even though diesels pollute a lot less than gasoline engines the emission regulations are preventing most diesel engines from being put to good use in this country. I think that our government wouldn't approve a fuel consumption reduction of 20-30 % as it will lower the $$$ they get from taxes so up goes the emission regulations for diesel while gasoline powered engines can pollute all they want.

Only a few makes and models offer diesel engines(VW, Mercedes, BMW, Volvo..... all very expensive vehicles).

^ Yeah!
A: This is a JK Wrangler thread- try the YJ section if you're looking for YJ-specific bits.
B: There is NO way to convert an engine from gas to diesel without MAJOR refitting, that would cost in the tens of thousands (new everything, essentially).
C: The only way it'd make any sense would be a SWAP. Try searching the YJ section for that, not JK.

Cheers- Mark W.

From Allpar: "A Fiat diesel is reportedly being tested by Siemens for US certification in the 2012 Wrangler."

Jeep will be certifying a 3.0 V6 diesel for the Grand Cherokee for U.S. and Canada - makes sense that we would get this, and Europe the 4-cyl...

I am no big fan of diesels, however there's one thing: fuel tank on 2D JK is too small for my needs. Diesel is somewhat more efficient (nothing like his fanboii spew on the Internet, but it is). Also, diesel fuel is denser. So, JK with diesel is going to have about 25% better range, which amounts to an extra jerry can.

This is from Allpar:

The 2011 Jeep Wrangler is here; the 2012 will have a standard Pentastar V6. A revised VM diesel is for export markets. Rock-Trac 4x4 system. The Scrambler pickup appears to be “no-go” for a few years at least. Jeep Wrangler • Scrambler Read more at Upcoming changes in the Chrysler lineup

Audi offers a stick in some cars, but parent company VW offers sticks in all engine combinations in their small cars here, which is awesome!

Any chance there will be a way to convert older JKs to diesel?
