As for "not wanting to take your money", that seems a bit naive; Jeep sells everything it can make now. You can't blame them for trying to maximize their profit potential and covering their previous R&D investments. Don't take it so personally.
Nailed it.

The gas engine with the AEV fuel caddy probably gives you similar range to the diesel.

The lack of demand is from their CEOs latest interview.

Was he talking about the grand cherokee? I can believe there's a lack of demand for a diesel in a domestic wrangler.

I hope he's not using GC diesel sales to base demand for a diesel wrangler.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

It's been a while since I posted on here... Is there any word on if Granite Crystal will be available on the 2015's? I am secretly hoping they don't make any more granites.

Is there a way to get production numbers for specific colors? I was curious how many Granites were produced on the 2014's.

I am not on the market for a 2015, but I've got to say a big THANKS to Milous, Pat, and Archer for all this information!

You're special even if the color isn't.

Inquiring minds do want to know. Unlike this ^ half-door rabble-rouser, I'm in the market for a '15 after missing out last year.

Two paths: A. I hope Pat's allegation comes true to cheese off SP because he got his as desired, or B. I'll no longer like SP - period (although I'm pretty sure it'll just be the jealousy talking).

So how about gents - is there any prospect of GC coming back this year?
