Jeep Wrangler Diesel Under Consideration

18

Depending on how successful the sales are for the Grand Cherokee diesel, Jeep may bring a Wrangler diesel to market.

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup sees the addition of a 3.0-liter diesel engine with 420 lb-ft of torque while maintaining an impressive 30 mpg on the highway. Leaked pricing shows that the Grand Cherokee diesel would fetch a $4,500 premium over the standard, gasoline V6 option.

Of course, the extra torque offered by a diesel powerplant as well as its fuel economy would make a great fit for the Wrangler. The high torque would be of great value to Wrangler off-roaders, and is something that Wrangler customers have been clamoring for over the years.
