    A diesel would be awesome. Actually, that sounds awesome in general... Of course until it breaks and you have to fix it =P

    Still, I think Jeep is starting to realize they need to be able to sell vehicles that have a decent MPG output to meet EPA standards and appeal to more consumers.

    Hopefully in both the 2door and 4door
    Hopefully in the base model too.

    And hopefully in the United States (and North America). We've been screwed over here with no diesel Wrangler for so long.

    This is thanks to all the prius driving tree huggers...look what happened to VW...those cars might have had a trick up the sleeve but still ran clean and got 40-50 mpg. That whole thing was not about the environment, rather money hungry a holes, in my opinion anyways...they tried killing the eco diesel too but thankfully chrysler fiat didn't have any hidden cheats...

    I think the anti fossil fuel thing is now here in full force. Even Volvo says they will quit building fossil fuel cars in a few years. And every major city in the world is banning diesel...

    And the VW thing was pure stupidity on VWs part. They are fully guilty of trying to deceive the US regulators.
