Correct. It is approved in neither but they are both expected to receive EPA certifications around the same time.Doesn't the EPA have to test the emissions in each specific platform the engine is put in? So having it approved in the Ram may not mean it's approved for the Wrangler, or am I wrong?
They were already selling GC and 1500 3.0s and did not take them off the market as long as they have been on their own accord. FCA has lost many millions on the certification delays for all three vehicles.Jeep first announced the Wrangler Diesel in November of 2017. The long delay is squarely on FCA’s shoulders.
After reading this article, I don't know if I am up to paying $300.00 on odd number changes and up to $600.00 on even number servicing.
The specifications are fantastic though.
Thanks! Good to know.Dont be scared off by the proposed maintenance costs. That is full retail dealer pricing.
I get a new vehicle every year to two years. My vehicle a little over a year ago was a Ram 2500 lifted on 37's. My first diesel. The oil changes (using rotella full synthetic) were 3 gallons plus filter. A gallon can easily be found on sale for $17 a gallon. The filter was around $12.
The fuel filters were around $80-90 for both on amazon. The dealer wanted something crazy like $300-400 for parts and labor depending on what dealer you went to. I replaced mine a couple times and it took about 25 minutes to do both.
All that is moot if you dont do your own basic maintenance. But if you do, It is only slightly more than you are used to.
That time frame is late Q4, waiting on the EPA certs to come through. Ram DT still is not certified in Cali. Ram 1500 Classic is out now, but those are older engines.
What is your source?That time frame is late Q4, waiting on the EPA certs to come through. Ram DT still is not certified in Cali. Ram 1500 Classic is out now, but those are older engines.
to the best of my knowledge Jeep hasn't been certified either
Turns out when you piss off the EPA by cheating on emissions but the EPA can only muster the evidence to extract <1/10th of the VW fines, EPA can still get their pound of flesh by certifying FCA’s competitor engines first and delaying the 3.0 gen2 to the tune of tens of millions in lost revenue. R&D holdups seem a long-shot theory when they had a certifiable and functional 3.0 in 2017/18.EPA holdup? I mean. In the time since they said this thing was coming Ford and GM built, certified, and released their diesels. Both of which new designs. So I call shenanigans.
I personally think there is a design holdup. Either they simply can’t get it to pass emissions due to how they designed it or there is a functional or production issue they can’t seem to overcome. You can bet Ford and GM are like “hey little buddy, how’s that project of yours coming?”
I don’t think it’s epa paperwork holdup. The engine either can’t pass emissions due to the design, breaks, or they can’t manufacture it for some reason. Either way. This is the Beyond Good and Evil 2 of car engines. Sure it’s coming out. Sure it is.
