I decided to make a new thread for this rather than go between the few that are out there. Fca is making a diesel version of the jeep. The new jeep is going to be a2017 model and will be a jl platform. Yes i do work for fca and am heavily involved in the 8 speed transmission that will be going into it. We are currently producing around 50 transmissions a week for the new jl model and the new versions of the 8 speed for the other rear wheel drives that currently get the 8 speed. I am not sure if our when the diesel will be avaliable in the states but i do know that in July we start building more units daily for them.

Is this the 3.0l diesel with 240hp and 420lbs of torque?

The one I've been more involved in is a 2.0 turbo. But i know we are building 3 different 8 speed transmissions for the wrangler.

Talk to Tony C and get me one to run around with to showcase it. I'll take it to the Overland Expos, etc.
