Diesel for 14
 
Just talked to I am jeep to order a service manual and I just kinda said I herd a rumor about the 14 having a diesel and she said that was correct ...

kramer2k 05-03-2013 12:30 PM

I'm dubious.

I don't think an IAMJEEP rep would have advance knowledge over the plethora of insiders out there that seem to scoop Chrysler employees every single time a rumor surfaces.

We would have heard about it by now.

That would be sweet. I miss my Powerstroke F250... it had Banks aftermarket intake / exhaust and a custom performance tune... When the boost would climb up to 30-35psi it was 4 tons of black soot belching fun :hide:

A hot-rod(able) diesel in a Wrangler would be very cool.

She probably thought you meant jeep in general which is true. The 2014 GC has a diesel option.

To put a diesel in a jk they would have to redesign the whole electrical canbus system. That's a ton of money to do that. They most likely wont do it until the redesign for that reason

Supperfast 05-03-2013 12:43 PM

Yeah she prob was thinking of the GC but we were talking about the wrangler ... I wonder if they did just how much better gas mileage it would be... I'm not about to get rid of my 13 but if its a lot I would be thinking about how I wish I would of waited ...

DuneYeti 05-03-2013 12:51 PM

They’ve been putting diesels the JK’s for years. Just not in North America.

traitor08 05-03-2013 01:32 PM

I don't care if jeep ever has a diesel.

Much better "gas" mileage... no gas required... (sorry couldn't resist) most diesel engine equivalent to gas motors get between 30%-50% better fuel efficiency. But diesel costs ~20% more than gasoline in my part of the country right now so that really takes a bite out of the savings plus they are always more expensive at purchase time than a gasoline version of the same vehicle. You do save money in the long run if you drive a lot of miles.

However, beyond lower fuel usage, the thing that makes diesels great is torque and the low RPMs that it's delivered. I've owned diesel cars (Mercedes, VW) and pickup trucks for years and test driven the equivalent gas versions of those same vehicles. The diesel versions are an entirely different driving experience, in a positive way. The off-the-line acceleration and the relaxed engine speeds make them a wonderful driving experience. I now always choose a diesel version of a vehicle when there's a choice.

I made my own biodiesel for a time from the grease at my employers cafeteria until NC started taxing home-made diesel. Nothing like smelling like a fast food restaurant as you drive down the road.

It would probably cost quite a bit more, but I would be the first in line for it.

Same rumor, different year.

Maybe this was bogus sales information, but when I bought my JKU last week, the sales manager confirmed that exact same thing. He followed right up that he would be waiting to see the take rate on that option though - something to the tune of about a $5K upgrade. The extra torque would be nice, but I'm not hurting right now, so I passed.

bill9274 05-03-2013 03:51 PM

with our stupid emissions it probably wouldnt get 15 mpg. Look at the diesel trucks they used to get around 20 now about 12.

tontwins 05-03-2013 03:55 PM

Who knows they might do it I mean they need someone to beta test them :-) it would suck to release a redesigned 2016 with issues

Cansalt 05-03-2013 04:11 PM

Why would jeep have to redesign the electrical system, the current JK is built for Europe, South Africa and Australia right now with a 2.8 diesel? could they not just modify that Jeep for north america? just saying... I don't want the G Cherokee diesel, too heavy, too complicated. give me the 2.8!!

Whole lot of stuff out there for the 2016 model year released late 2015.

What's your mpg like?

IndyJeepMan 05-03-2013 06:10 PM

Diesel prices and availability are all influenced by politicians and idiots up top. Theres a reason all of the worlds major countries use diesel except us.

asleeper 05-04-2013 01:35 AM

I found a listing once of world gas/diesel prices by country; only in 2 countries was diesel more expensive than gasoline: USA and Russia.

Well since the country he lives in probably doesn't use miles or gallons, that's a tough question to answer.

How so? Conversion math is pretty simple, and even more so now that there are specific calculators on the internet.

Farnham21 05-04-2013 02:48 AM

Conversion math is simple yes just way to ask it was a bit off should have said fuel economy. Believe it or not, all people in the world don't know what MPG means.

25 to 30 mpg highway, about 23-25 city.

Aussie Jeepster 05-04-2013 03:19 AM

Our diesel prices here are currently $1.46/litre ($5.54/gal) and gas is $1.28/litre ($4.86/gal).
Diesel has tons of torque and I quite enjoy surprising some of the hoons at the traffic lights when I leave them standing!!!!

This should provide a reasonable explanation.

It's all over if wrangler gets a diesel. I will sell body parts if I have to :D

so thats about a 40% increase...
around here Diesel cost about 15% more then gas..
So, as i have said over and over and over, a majority of the "is it worth it" debate comes down to what the option charge will be for the Die$el..
I beleive they're charging about $4,000 in the GC.

That is if you're looking at it for economy...or if you're looking at it just cuz you WANT IT !
