The 3.0L is an over-built proven design from a reputable diesel manufacturer.

The engine is a very well proven engine... a little history here:

VM Motori - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And the same engine is used in Maserati...

So the engine is solid, but everything attached to it sucks. Got it. 👍

The OP seems happy with his choice:

MIL & P20EE again & again & again...

Gotta say, though, that I LOVE LOVE LOVE that CRD engine! While my rig was in the shop I had a loaner, a 2015 JGC with the 3.6L and for 700 miles I drove it, it got only 16 MPG overall.

Around town the CRD is much much peppier than the 3.6L. On the freeway, passing speeds are pretty good although the 3.6L is also decent, but the 3.6L is louder while the CRD sounds more refined. The 3.6L's exhaust note sounds more "growly" while the CRD again is more refined.

It sounds to me like he's trying to convince everyone around him that he made the right choice when he passed over the diesel...

Re: Diesel - V6 Gas?

No doubt there have been some issues with emissions reduction systems on the diesel, most makes of diesel have some problems with these. But in the end I think its something many will put up with for the other advantages of the diesel.

But yeah, its not that there is a problem with the motor, that's like arguing that a few trans problems with the SRT mean the 6.4 motor is crap.....
