We have not talked about a diesel application in the US. It will be available overseas next year. Stringent emissions standards make it difficult in the US.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Why is the Hemi only rated 360 HP in the Jeep and 390 in the Dodge trucks?
Is it because of the induction, the exhaust or the chip?

Good to hear!!

I would recommend any top end engine changes (sensors, sealing, electrical..). The 2011 V8 engine reflects the Hemi refinements from 2009 MY. We also boasted HP/torque in 2011 with reduced exhaust back-pressure and calibrations. We did change the oil pan for 2011 to package with the front diff.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Not much has been mentioned about the ETC "pedal bobble" feature. Was this in any way present in the 2005-2010 WK, or is it an entirely new feature for the 2011 model? Can you explain a little more about its function?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Is there a way to get the dealer to make the WK2 NOT revert back to AUTO model at key-cycle and remain on what you placed it at? Sport, Auto, Mud etc.

Is there any information you can give on what this is and if it can be ordered yet

All vehicles that have Uconnect phone also include a remote USB port or UCI interface. This is optional on Lardeo E, stadard on Laredo X, Limited and Overland. The USB port connects audio devices (i-pod / i-Phone) to the radio and will with use of the audio controls.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Well I may as well ask a Jeep engineer. I own a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and for some reason when I come to a stop my Jeeps steering wheel would turn to the right (to 3 o clock) and even rarely turn to the left without me doing anything. Any idea on what it could be? Not an alignment issue since I replaced the tire rods and got an alignment.

Why was the hand brake changed to a foot brake?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Thanks for doing this engineers! Just a quick one, when can I order the RHR radio? I'm about to go insane waiting for it to become available through my dealer.

Thanks again.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

People that use the roof racks will have an issue with the antenna sticking up from the middle of the roof. For example if I carry my snowboard or kayak on the roof of the new wk2 the antenna would be in the way. Will there be a kit to move the antenna?
