My hopes would that Chrysler will set the bar for diesel engines, and that will set off the other manufactures to follow the leader so to speak. So fingers crossed Toyota will follow suit.

I think more customers would opt for a diesel than you think. Yes it is more expensive up front, but that's because it's worth it. MPG, torque, longevity.

We all bought a toyota and paid a premium for it. Everything worth having has a price.
Downside to having a diesel is repairs, and when they go downhill they go downhill. Thousand dollars to replace one injector, there's also the 12 quart oil changes too. I will just stick to my gas engine.

The $4500 upcharge and the price per gallon of fuel outweighs any benefits for me. Cool for sure, but nothing I gotta have. Midlife - what makes the diesel call to you?

Hey,
Well good luck when you get it however, I have bought 2 first year production vehicles basically because I didn't learn the first time...I understand you want what you want it is your money and choice. I would caution you to perhaps wait till they are on the streets a year. Both first year production runs I bought one 99 Chevy Silverado new body style an the Jeep Commanche 1990 were very expensive lessons.

If the diesel was on option on the current model I think there would be a lot less issues. But the article I read said the diesel will likely be introduced with the new model redesign which IMO the first years of a new model of a new model being there are numerous issues that need addressing.

Yup, they have pretty much killed all the Pros to owning a diesel, unless money is a non issue!

This is not entirely true. You are referring to current diesel engines in 3/4 or 1 ton trucks, a small displacement diesel would not be as bad to maintain. It will not have a 6-7L engine so you won't have the 12 quart oil changes. As far as the parts, diesels are relatively simple engines. When properly maintained, you can go a couple hundred thousand miles with very little upkeep aside from general maintenance. Actually, my Tacoma has the highest schedule maintenance cost out of any vehicle I've ever owned.

Just a taught, who needs a truck and buys one and then a Jeep is just as good?
I bought my truck because I need a "TRUCK", when I just want a car for transportation
I'll consider one, even a Jeep.

Not everyone here "needs" a truck per se. I wanted 4x4 and something that could tow a decent amount. The other vehicle I was looking at was the Xterra. That word have served me just as well. I decided on the truck just for ease of transporting bikes, kayaks, etc without needing a roof rack.

I did the exact same thing.



Honestly OP, I think its a stupid ass decision to sell your nice looking truck for a wrangler just because you HAVE to have a diesel. By the time you get it diesel will probably have shot through the roof in price and you will be spending more on that jeep than you ever would with your truck. Lets see, biggest benefit to having a diesel is the torque and towing ability...and remind me how acclaimed the Wrangler is as a tow rig....or wait...its not.

also a valid point... a new style with a new engine to that vehicle and you are going to buy the first ones off the production line...HELLO ISSUES!

$4500 for the diesel? No thanks, and the gas mileage myth has gone downhill since the epa mandated particulate filters they have to run now.

Doesn't Fiat own a large part or even a majority of Jeep now?

Experience-Former Super Duty Powerstroke owner. The extra torque is nice when towing but I just don't see the need in a Jeep. Cute idea tho.

Owning the first Jeep Wrangler Diesel would make you a Pioneer. Whats that saying, "They way to tell a Pioneer is by the arrows in his back."

considering the depreciation hit you'll take on selling your taco and any money put into the new jeep, wouldn't it be cheaper, less work, and a better product in the end to just do a diesel conversion?

sure it's expensive, but so is selling your truck for a new jeep with the rubicon package...

Yeah, doesn't seem like a good idea to me. Towing power is the obvious advantage, but as IDtruck and you pointed out the Wrangler isn't a bigtime tower, I believe right now with the Pentastar 285HP it's only 3500 lbs with the optional tow package.

But too each his own, good luck with it OP.
