Jeep has apparently communicated Q3 to dealers which lines up with public statements on Ram CRD in Q3 too. Q3 is still vague enough, add in production vs delivery and its confusing. Hopefully we'll get some good news in a month or so.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I'm going to be pedantic.

First, there is no CRD anymore. It's an EcoDiesel. EDIT: I'm an Idiot. I was thinking Cummins, not Common Rail. So Im dumb...my apologies.


Second, EPA/CARB certification, not a big deal: read these articles:

SFW: Inside The Banks VM Motori 3.0L 630T V6 Diesel Engine - Diesel Power Magazine

Also SFW:
Banks Power | Banks Diesel V6

Now before the flames turn on, Gale Banks has a hell of a marketing machine. Ignoring the hype, you still have to respect the dudes ability to make diesels go fast. If you've not driven one of the modern diesels with his parts attached, you're missing out.

I don't believe the EPA is an issue, as Banks has gotten CARB and EPA approval for all of their stuff in the past... It's probably something non-governmental causing a slowdown. Such is modern manufacturing...promise a lot, generate hype, try to deliver if you can.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Well ectually it is a Common Rail Diesel (CRD) just not the same CRD as before (a little like saying "fuel injected engine").

If you want to get technical, I am suprised it is using solenoid injectors rather than piezio, usually that is for lower pressure designs.

Does look like a nice design & have not seen an intercooler in the stock diesel.

I do hope is includes an EGT gauge or limiter. A turbo-diesel is a little like a horse: if you stand on it, it will just keep producing more power and the head will keep getting hotter until it melts or cracks (and AL melts lower than FE)

EcoDiesel is a marketing name I think.

It's also the name of a badge placed on the tailgate.

Exports will still be badged "CRD", NAFTA will get "EcoDiesel".

I think he's referring to when they do make em but they did make some US versions as test mules for and for the car magazines etc.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Those were not mules. They were pre-volume-production builds. Big difference.
