Wow, that engine sounded good. I can’t wait for the ecodiesel! Looks like they have the new black wheel option too.

The music sucks, just engine sounds would make the video much better.

Not sure it if was just the background noise, but it sure had less (for lack of a better term) diesel clatter than my ram ecodiesel. Wonder how many changes were made to the gen 2 ecodiesel.

Still waiting for the 3.0L, but favoring a 3.6 if that's my only manual trans option.

I've had the 6spd manual in two JK Rubicons (3.8L & 3.6L) and I can honestly say I'm glad I went with the Auto over the manual this time around. The 6spd was fun to drive no doubt, but the 8spd auto just handles things so much better.

I don’t know if it is me, but sounds like the eco diesel gen 2 is louder than gen 1. Thoughts?

This is very subjective as I am comparing it with a Dodge Ram diesel.
