I am wondering if the lower torque in the EcoDiesels for Wranglers will translate to improved mileage as opposed to the EcoDiesels for the Ram Trucks.

Man, a diesel Rubicon will crest $60k MSRP, although transaction prices will be more like mid-50s. At that price range, you are in Rivian territory, after the $7500 tax credit. The only thing a diesel SUV has over a BEV SUV is range; the electric will have gobs more torque, accelerate twice as fast, and the Rivian at least can simulate any drivetrain you can think of (lockers, LSD, center diff, 'tank mode', etc).

I know the first Rivians won't be reliable, but it can't be any worse than an Italian Diesel.
