thaduke2003 ^ With an engine swap, maybe. But it'll be a PITA- all kinds of wiring, motor mounts, etc. Mark W.

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

zaitcev 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.

silvrevo YES,,, one of these stupid American companies need to jump on diesels!

Its sitting right in front of them.

Enjoy

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...

thaduke2003 ^ 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.

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).

yj-genral 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...

silvrevo Thats true,, didnt mention for the us market,,, just said by the 4th quarter this year.

Tricky
03-04-2010 07:29 AM
yj-genral ^ 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...

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.
