Has anyone else seen that the 2.2L is discontinued?
Pretty disappointing. I drove both the 2.0L and the 2.2D and found the power delivery of the 2.2D far better than the the petrel engine.
Admittedly, the petrel engine was significantly quieter.
You can now only get the 2.0L petrel engine, without the hybrid system.
Even the gladiator, which starts at 60k€ for the sport (75k€ for the launch edition) is only available with the 3.6L.
I would definitely not want to pay the fuel bill for that. I had the 3.6 in my JK in the US. Even there, it cost me around 400 bucks a month in gas.

I have already seen the price of used Rubicons go up.
Too bad the 4x4e will run at least 75k€ here in Germany. I would consider trading it in for one.

It was dropped here in Australia for the 2021 year, to be honest I wouldn't get it, not sold in the US parts are going to be a struggle and it will be the 'odd' JL in a few years.

The only parts struggle will be aftermarket. The 2.2 has been around in Fiats for a few years so engine parts shouldn't be an issue and the gearbox is the same as used in other models so that shouldn't be an issue either.

That is sad news.
At least in Norway you can get it, and also the Gladiator comes with the new 3.0 Ecodiesel.

For me, the 2.2D is the perfect engine for the JL ...excluding the V8 of course :devil:

Yep, a sad move on Jeeps part. They really need a suitable diesel, otherwise they have lost my future business (unless they want to introduce the V8 to Australia ;)). The 2.2 is a little ripper. Drove both the petrol and diesel. Chose the diesel and happy with my choice. Great fuel economy and tows my camper trailer without protest.

It was already rare to find a specific accessory for the 2.2 Diesel, so now that it's not available anymore (I looked and in my country too) it's going to be very impossible to find something :headbang:
