Let the JK work out the kinks with the updated 3.6 so that the JL will have a smoother launch?

So, has the diesel been 100% removed from the drawing board of the 2016 model? I admit that I thought it possible a couple years ago with all the rumor mill articles. Especially with the, "boost sales before they bring in the redesigned model" line. Now, not so much...

I am not too sure what that Edmunds story really means. The way I read it, their use of the term "2016 Wrangler" is their way of referring to the highly anticipated redesigned Wrangler. At some point, such was assumed to be coming out for the 2016 MY, but newer info all points to the 2018 MY.

As to a diesel in a US Wrangler, the only credible hint comes from the Jeep exec who said that he would not invest in putting a diesel into any other US Jeep models until the Grand Cherokee diesel sales in the US double.

Thanks for the update... Figured as much. If a direct injection 3.6 were to be pushed, would it require premium fuel?

Also, tried to find a comparable motor already in the market- possibly the GM 3.6 in the Terrain, stats are not too impressive and very similar to the current 3.6, to include hp/tq/mpg...

So DI is confirmed for 2016? That sucks! DI engines run dirty. The soot on the tailpipe will make you cringe thinking about what's going on internally. Better change the oil every 3K!! And there is little to no real world power or mileage benefit.

For what it's worth, I'm now seeing "Same drivetrain as 2015" under 2016 Wranglers on wk2jeeps.

Really hoping this is true.

"M" posted a hint on another thread here that ordering window for the 15's might be closing soon. It could be that Jeep just gave up on the DI, and thus doesn't have to extend the 2015 MY, and delay the start of the 2016 MY, for several months.

Seems plausible, especially since the website changed from "Upgraded Pentastar" to "Same drivetrain".

Not sure I would believe the website since it seems to be full of inaccurate information during model year changes.

I almost agree with you 100% on this year's color selection with the exception of the Hydro Blue. I regretted missing out on Cosmos Blue back in '13 when True Blue was all that you had to choose from. Then comes Hydro Blue which is my favorite blue that Jeep has ever offered. However the Crush Orange and Gecko Green of '13 helped make '13 the best year for non black/grey/white color variations.

I figured Hydro Blue would be all over the place this year when it was made available on all the models. I ordered my '15 Hydro Blue JK in August and I'd only need one hand to count how many times I've passed another one on the road. I'm curious to see if it comes back in '16.

Rescue green would be fun... I'd like the white with white hardtop just to keep from getting that oven feeling, despite the mailtruck look.
