Diesel and 8 Speed Auto Confirmed for Next Gen

So say the guys at autoblog. They are not the type to throw it out there if they don't have a pretty solid source.

Next-gen Jeep Wrangler to get 8-speed automatic and 3.0-liter EcoDiesel

I saw the same info posted on Trucktrend.com as well. Very interested to get more info regarding this combo. Hopefully the pricing will be similar to the option for the WK2.

Just have to make up my mind on waiting to purchase once availability is announced. That is if I even like the redesign to begin with.

Re: Diesel and 8 Speed Auto Confirmed for Next Gen

I am not sure I would use the word "confirmed" when paired with "an anonymous source".

That article also skips over the exec's more recent claim that he would not consider putting a diesel into any other US models until the Grand Cherokee's diesel sales double. If such has changed (sales have doubled?), I would like to see it said directly.

I'll wait for Milous or Pat to post something before I would start to use the word "confirmed".
