If it has a manual transmission yes, if auto no. My estimate that the diesel will be available with a manual, <1%.

Well there is the exceptions to the rule, like the Chevy Cruze diesel 6spd MT.. but they are exactly that, the rarity not the norm like Europe or abroad... but even Europe’s long marriage with diesel is souring a bit.

However as they still remain a large part of the export market, that keeps it as a viable option for the Wrangler platform should the consumer or regulatory environment change in N.Am.

Remember, it’s not just diesel-gate, the NOX issue was already a major concern in large congested cities, diesel-gate was a short term cheating response to that already shifting focus, and then just compounded that push once discovered.

Just to be clear even without dieselgate cheating, the standards were pushing hard on diesel’s demise (especially in cities), the same way the new particulate focus is now killing-off those microturbos that were all the rage just a few years ago.
