For those who wish the Jeep Wrangler could come with a diesel option, your wish might be coming true. Wards Auto had the chance to talk with Jeep President and CEO Mike Manley and asked about the possibility of a diesel for the Wrangler.

“Wrangler is on the radar to get (a) diesel. Remember we’re also going through the product change of Wrangler for 2015-16. That will probably be the right time to introduce the diesel into that vehicle," Manley revealed. “I’m confident that the Grand Cherokee will show just how large a demand there is for diesel, and I think what that will do is reinforce the need for us to target Wrangler as a vehicle that can take a diesel.”

If given the green light, the Wrangler would be the forth diesel offered in the Chrysler family. The other three are the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ram 1500, and Ram ProMaster.

I love diesels. I fear Chrysler's asking price for the diesel option.

Sweet, but can we fix this sentence?

If given the green light, the Wrangler would be forth diesel offered in the Chrysler family.

Never knew "be forth diesel" was proper.

I am excited about all the great Alternative fuel options.

I already like the Wrangler and a diesel engine would make it a very tempting purchase.

I thank many will flock to buying new Wranglers if it comes with a diesel option.

      If you need a distraction on this Monday, may we point you in the direction of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Owner's Manual and User's Guide. JL Wrangler Forums discovered both books on a public FCA Canada website and has provided PDFs of both for your perusal. 
      Is there any new information that can be gleaned? Yes.
      There will be a power-retractable hardtop. However, the top is not removable. A 4WD Auto mode that will shift power between the front and rear axles when needed. UConnect system featuring pages for off-road settings Max towing capacity of 2,000 pounds for 2-door models, 3,500 pounds for 4-door models.  The manual mentions both the turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder and 3.6L V6, but doesn't mention power output. Thanks to an earlier leak, we know the 3.6 will produce 285 horsepower.
