Diesel Jeeps in North America – Jeep Diesel Petition

If you’ve ever wanted a diesel powered Jeep in North America, I ask you to head over to the Jeep Diesel Petition and sign the petition to show your interest.
It’s time the North American market got to experience 406 ft. lbs of torque and 34 mpg.

Checkout the Diesel-powered AEV J8 below. Yup. That’s what we want.

      Thanks for the feedback, I’m happy you like my story.
      As for diesel Jeeps, keep in mind this doesn’t apply to the JK – but everything Jeep make now and in the future.

    i suppose so, but unless they alter course ill probably be sticking with the old jeeps, assuming my current jeep gets stolen or crashed, otherwise ill keep it forever :)

  3. My trusty VW Jetta has 275,000 miles on it. I am not sure how much life is left in it. It sure would be great to drive a Wrangler that gets the same MPG as the Jetta. A Wrangler as a daily driver!
