Turbo Lag

I have read in numerous magazines that FCA has addressed the turbo lag in the Ecodiesel engine. Here is the comment and question.
Hello, as you know I have a 15 JGC Ecodiesel. It has turbo lag issues.
The recent truck trend article congratulating FCA on the Ecodiesel engine
for 2016 mentioned and I quote. "The engine received a calibration update
for 16 to improve throttle response at part throttle and acceleration from
a stop" I have both issues in my 15. Is this software upgrade available
for my 2015 to improve it's engine and lag response?

Can't remember if I asked this question already on this forum.

I still notice a turbo lag in the 16. Not much different from my 14.

Re: Turbo Lag

Well that's interesting it feels the same as the 14 for you. Thanks for letting me know.
Did you sell your 14 or did you have enough issues that the dealer traded it for you?

After many months of headaches, Jeep finally replaced mine. Not a trade, rather a Jeep buyback.
