Hell yeah it is...might have two in my garage in a year.

Havent been around here much since actually buying a WK2 since my girlfriend basically drives it all the time. Hard to get excited about modding a truck that you never drive. I am going to give it a good drive down to California next month for the Oregon-Stanford game though. But yeah I could already feel my wallet getting lighter when I read about the diesel.

Now they just need to drop that in the Wrangler and I'll trade up there as well.

Re: Marchionne confirms North American diesel

I can tell you guys it is worth the wait as the motor is fantastic.
Coupled with the 8sp it will be class leading.

Re: Marchionne confirms North American diesel

having been through a number of dealer "knowledge" issues related to lack of understanding of the 3.0L CRD, I would be very hesitant to buy another diesel.

That would suck but it sounds as if this one is going to be in several chryco products which should help quite a bit.

Smile Re: Marchionne confirms North American diesel

Hello to all, can anyone tell me how reliable this diesel engine is. I am trying to hold off and wait for the diesel model, I am looking into the VW Touareg Diesel, but I hear some horror stories with this model, it is a vey high service model. Just wondering how the JGC diesel would compare thx for your opinions
