Heard rumor from a friend who is Service Tech that there may be a coming "recall" related to the charges against FCA of "manipulating" the emissions output of the 3.0 EcoDiesel, similar to the VW debacle. I'll be curious what that means for power & fuel economy if it comes to fruition. I'm sure both will go down. The only plus might be a forced "refund" of some of that $6k to buy the package in the first place.

From the article:
The indictment says Pasini, Sabbioni and Palma were responsible for developing and calibrating the 3.0-liter diesel engine used in the 2014-16 models of the Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The filing says their work included calibrating several software features in the vehicles' emissions control systems to meet emissions standards.

Looks like it won't effect us, it's for older vehicles.

I lived through the “diesel gate” withe my WK2 2015 Grand Cherokee. It would be a shame if the JL diesel gets caught up in another debacle. Likely be the end of any diesel vehicles.
