Diesel in 2010.. believe it ???

According to Fiat-Chrysler's five-year plan, the Wrangler will get a long-overdue diesel engine option at the end of 2010, and make some concessions to fuel economy (a start-stop system) and creature comforts (a restyled interior). But otherwise, the Italian bosses are going to leave the old donkey alone.

What a wonderfully written article.

Forget all the "future" fiat stuff. The rest is a perfect description of Jeeps in general and Wranglers in particular.

"But otherwise, the Italian bosses are going to leave the old donkey alone."

"Take our test car, for instance. The Rubicon-package Wrangler Unlimited is full of drop-forged orneriness, starting with a couple of bigger-badder Dana 44 axles with electronic locking differentials; a two-speed transfer case with extra tall gearing; and electronic front sway bar disconnect, which will give you a little more wheel articulation when you're driving over, say, a Honda Accord."

I like this guy.

If it's not a little Cummins I wouldn't be surprised.
