Word is that it will be the same 3.0 Fiat is using in Europe.

It looks very promising! I'd be interested in it as long as it provides mileage and performance increases

No specs were released on the motor? At this point I don't even want a diesel to come out since I just bought a 2012.

Imagine diesel torque compared to gas engines though....major increase. Then bump it up with a bully dog tuner : )

I'm definitely pro diesel because of the power and fuel economy, but with diesel engines costing more than gas engines to buy, costing more for maintenance, 20% higher diesel fuel prices in my area versus regular gas, and complicated epa emissions systems, I'm taking a wait and see attitude.

I just bought my 2012 and loaded it up with aftermarket accessories. If a diesel was available for a JK, it would have to be significantly better than the Pentastar for me to justify getting rid of my JKU.
