Diesel Engine for the 07 Wrangler
Let Daimler Chrysler know we want diesel!
1. Quality: Biodiesel quality is very inconsistent. If you watched the BioWillie item on NBC news last week, they made a comment about this.
2. Consistent supply. You cannot get a regular supply of the stuff except in certain areas of the country.
3. Emissions: biodiesel increases NOx emissions unless you put in an additive. NOx is a problem for diesels.
I drive a 2005 Jeep Liberty CRD and love it. I have used anything from B5 to B15 or 20 from time to time. I would like to use B40 or 50 if possible. Some people in the Jeep Liberty CRD forum have used fairly high concentrations of biodiesel with mixed results.
When biodiesel quality becomes a non-issue, I will use it more consistently.
bei uns macht sich das erst recht bemerkbar im geldbeutel.
wir zahlen für 1 liter normalbenzin im durchschnitt 1,20€ sind rund 1$/1liter. ob ihr in den USA einen diesel bekommt ist fraglich da die diesel nur für den export bestimmt sind.
noch viel spaß im forum

...and if not, there won't be a 7 slot grill in my garage!! Listen up DCX! I for one won't be waiting for 08 or 09 for an oil burner. The first decent light diesel truck/SUV from someone other than GM is probably going to get my money.
I don't think anyone would trade anything for a Prius.
That said.. I'd like to second this statement "Please, please make a diesel Rubicon Unlimited! I've always wanted a Wrangler, but could never fit one into our family lifestyle. This would be absolutely perfect! Bring it on!"
For the love of all that is good in the world why are we even having to ask? Other than Cali wont let them sell them there I see no reason not to offer it. :confuse:
Wonder why it's not an option yet?
If we want a diesel Unlimited Rubicon, I think we will have to go to Toledo and steal one from the factory lot before it ends up on a boat to europa.
All of us who want an oil burner version need to scream in a loud voice so DCX will hear us :mad:
At least they are hopefully getting the idea that some of us want them.
"We are pleased to read of your interest in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler. This vehicle is expected to arrive in dealerships in the fall of 2006. At this time, DaimlerChrysler has not officially announced the pricing and full product specifications for the 2007 Jeep Wrangler models. More information should become available to us as well as being posted on the Jeep website closer to the official release date of the 2007 model. We encourage you to stay in contact with Jeep.com and your local Jeep dealership as further information becomes available.
At this time, DaimlerChrysler has not released any plans that indicate the future production of the Jeep Wrangler with the option of the 2.8L Common Rail Diesel engine for the North American market. However, with constantly shifting market trends I would hesitate to discount the possibility of new products on the horizon, specifically designed to suit your needs. Please feel free to check back with us or your local Jeep dealership periodically for future updates."
That is very doubtful. The MB V6 diesel blutec engine is only going into some pricey vehicles. It would be a lot of power for a Wrangler. It would be nice though. I would buy a Wrangler with any diesel option. No future plans to buy any gas powered vehicles. The last dealer I talked to in Boerne Texas told me they cannot keep the Liberty CRD on their lots. They get calls all the time for a Wrangler with the CRD.
I told him I'd be planning a trip to Toronto because I'm not buying a wrangler of any kind that isn't a diesel.
Here is the pdf release I found listing the CRD as export only.
Again I ask.. WHY EXPORT ONLY? :mad:
I'm guessing this doesn't include aftermarket conversions though?
I am pretty sure that conversions are not covered although that would depend on any emmissions testing requried by state and local governments. Dropping a liberty crd into a wrangler would be interesting, but I think it would be an expensive proposition.
With all the talk about ethanol as an alternate fuel. I'm not sure we will ever see the commitment to diesels in light vehicles like they enjoy in Europe.
Of course I would have also thought they would already offer a diesel wrangler in the US and they don't.
Also capable of B20 or B100 bio-diesel.
Found this out from another site.
If DB would put a DIESEL in their mini vans that got mileage in the 30's I would go back to the mini van, but don't forget about safety. Look at Europe for safety, or just look at Europe for most everything.
All the big three knows is how to pay off congess and all congress knows is to put a hand out.
Do you know if there is a soft top version?
Toyota is kicking so much [non-permissible content removed] it's scary. You'd think it would be a hint. Especially with the simple answer sitting in crates in their warehouses.
Just keep rolling out more stupid looking giant SUVs with rubbermade fenders and they will keep looking ugly and unsold in car dealers lots across the country *sigh*
