3.0L Diesel Jeep JL Wrangler Spotted!

It’s alive and is finally becoming a reality! This Jeep Wrangler 3.0L EcoDiesel was caught while testing in Auburn Hills. According to Jeep, only the Wrangler Unlimited models will offer the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 as a powertrain option.

The updated version of the 3.0L EcoDiesel will be rated at around 260 horsepower and 442 lb.-ft of torque. It will also feature Engine Stop-Start (ESS) technology on all EcoDiesel models. Power will be mated to a ZF sourced 8-speed automatic transmission. This newest updated EcoDiesel will feature new turbo technologies such as low-friction bearings, low-friction pistons, new injector nozzle design, piston bowl and more.

We expect the diesel JL Wrangler will go on sale in Q4 of this year. See all the photos inside.
