Maybe all these delays are the universe's way of telling my not to get the diesel right now. I've been getting cold feet lately thinking about Jeep not being ready for "prime time" servicing diesels on a big scale - heck they can't even launch the thing without falling all over themselves

Most people with the V6 are happy with power plus it will cost me a lot less upfront. Long term maintenance may be less on the gasser too. I drive close to 25k miles a year so long-term maintenance has to be a big factor for me as well as fuel economy. A couple of red flags on diesel maintenance for me were exclusion from max care extended warranty and someone posted possible about exclusions of all the diesel emissions stuff on extended warranty. Add in the relative newness of the engine and Jeep being unfamiliar with servicing diesels and it had me worried.

All of this stuff will eventually get worked out and Jeep will do fine with diesels but it might take a few years of growing pains. Maybe I'll be good for diesel version 2.0 someday

I thought about other manufacturers diesels but the price goes up quickly and maintenance on German cars is costly in the long term. I really just like the Jeep

Good luck to those still waiting, I'll be rooting for you!
I'm considering doing the same after reading about guys in Colorado having no trouble climbing/passing at altitude with the 6. I'm planning to rent a V6 for a camping trip in a couple weeks, then might just pull the trigger and save myself the $3,000 and the heartache.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Put me in that boat. Some things came up that couldn't allow me to wait any longer. I'm beginning negotiations on an Overland V6. Hopefully by the time I'm ready to trade again the diesel will be in production....hopefully.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Any of ya'll go to this website? Jeep - Contact Us It's tons of fun...yep...you e-mail Jeep. Just ask the "Why did you advertise the heck out of this thing...and now you're not telling the truth?" question...

Or ask "When will it be available?". Lots of fun there I'm sure.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Of course, I still stand my ground that they've not got EPA certification yet...There is ZERO record of a 3.0 liter Diesel in any searches for Jeep and Diesel 3.0 liter 2014 model on this site Basic Search | Document Index System | US EPA

So what I'm saying, in short... is this vehicle is VAPORWARE. The test models the press drives...are real. But you can't buy that. Those are Not For Sale...

Yes of course that's what Chrysler wants you to do buy vehicles that are sitting on the lot that haven't been sold yet before they release the diesel
