A diesel Wrangler has been talked about for many years. An EcoDiesel with 8-speed would be a great combo in the Wrangler except for the weight. The Ram and Grand Cherokee barely accommodate the diesel's weight, and the Wrangler is much lighter.

Jeep is still not talking although it is known the next-gen Wrangler is planned for the 2018 MY. Rumors say it will be lighter with an aluminum body and hydroformed frame, so a diesel might work. The trouble is that by 2018 it may be too late to introduce the 3.0L diesel because of more stringent emission requirements.

Maybe they can take the VW 2.0 TDI and put it in the Wrangler.

How about that in-line Fiat 4 cylinder 3.0 diesel? Don't know how it compares in weight to the Ecodiesel but it should be smaller.
