Kinda depend on the area. Runs between midgrade and premium around mine, but on a trip to the left coast recently it was higher than premium.

This could change, as the price is pretty much based on how the refineries tune their stacks to produce yields of the grades from base stock. Most now tune toward gasoline base as that's where the volume is. Diesels would have to become a lot more popular to change that, although the gov't could easily modify this in a hurry with a teeny tiny tax break to cut emissions if it really cared as opposed to just flopping bobble heads around.

Re: Cheapest 2014 Diesel You Can Get

Newbie here, though I have been monitoring for the past 6 months.

Actually, it is possible to get a diesel JGC under $40K, perhaps in the area of $38K. If you go to the Jeep website and do a build, select the Limited 2WD for $35,795. In the 2WD version, you can opt for diesel without the luxury package, so add $4,500 for a total of $40,295. Add destination fee of $995 and you have $41,290. Join Tread Lightly and buy it through the Chrysler Affiliate program for 1% below invoice. I'm guessing about $38K.

Of course, who would buy a Jeep in a 2WD configuration? Not me! I think this was put out only for advertising purposes.

You need the LUX II package for the diesel. The website will allow configurations that are not possible. Happens all the time.

Re: Cheapest 2014 Diesel You Can Get

To throw in some info to this discussion, Jeep has claimed that they are selling the ecodiesel almost at cost. In order to get the profit they need, they are only offering with the higher trim levels because those "luxury" options are where they see the most profit margin. That explains why you must order a luxury package with the Limited.

Since they are reintroducing the diesel, they didn't want to doom it from the start by making it a stand alone $7,000 option. They are doing the exact same thing with the Ram ecodiesels. Top trim levels only.
