X2. I'd like to see the 6 speed manual available with the diesel but I'll bet it won't happen... It's another power train combination that they'll have to spend money to certify with the EPA

Yes, much more likely, but lets face it, it's nice to dream of a 5.7L Hemi Jeep...

Is the "upgrade" the same as the Grand Cherokee got for 2016 (I'm assuming so)?
Highlighting the enhancements on this revised Pentastar V6 are a new two-step variable valve lift (VVL) system to complement its upgraded variable valve timing (VVT) setup, both of which are designed to help reduce parasitic pumping losses. The remake also brought a new cooled exhaust-gas-recirculation system, higher 11.3:1 compression ratio, more efficient 8-orifice fuel injectors and redesigned cylinder heads with high-tumble intake ports and shrouded combustion chambers. Engineers also managed to reduce internal friction levels and trim four pounds out of the engine's weight.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I prefer not to drive a manual in Houston traffic. I did that in the z28 and it was awful, but at least it was fast. I cant imagine having a manual in my jeep as well.
