Sorry my OCD...
You can edit the title of the post...

For the diesel, and not just reflecting on the FCA diesel, but:

- with all of the maintenance and operational costs
- unreliability due to emissions systems and CP4 pumps
- so many "dieselgates"
- so many removing the emissions and rolling coal
- so many not matching their use case to the diesel

I am surprised many of these late model diesels were debuted at all.

100% can confirm
With who? The only official announcement is that the ED will no longer be available in the RAM 1500 as they move that vehicle to a total EV platform in the US.

The only information I've seen about the ED no longer being available in US Wrangler production is a regurgitated blurb from a dealership in a sales ad.

Challenge is, only non-Ecodiesel owners feel that way. Glad I have my (issue-free) diesel. Puts a smile on my face every time I dip into that endless torque.
