They said they improved this for the 2016. What is your experience?
I have driven hundreds of thousands of miles on three turbo charged engine, including Audi A6, and a Land Rover Discovery Diesel. I have to say that turbo lag is not noticeable. I have not driven a 2015 JGC ecodiesel, so I cannot say if people who are complaining are first time drivers of turbo and diesel, or if 2015 really suffers from turbo lag.

The power delivery of this engine mated with this transmission and turbo is awesome.

Maybe take one for test drive and compare?
