Jeep enthusiasts waiting to see a diesel engine under the Wrangler’s hood will have to be patient just a little longer.
“Wrangler is on the radar to get (a) diesel,” Jeep President and CEO Mike Manley tells WardsAuto at a drive here of the new Grand Cherokee diesel and other models. “Remember we’re also going through the product change of Wrangler for 2015-16. That will probably be the right time to introduce the diesel into that vehicle.
“I’m confident that the Grand Cherokee will show just how large a demand there is for diesel, and I think what that will do is reinforce the need for us to target Wrangler as a vehicle that can take a diesel.”
