Over at JeepNewsNow, there have been a couple posts that ultimately confirm the presence of a CRD variant of the 2007 Jeep Wrangler. The find started out with this post, which featured a couple photos of both the 2007 Jeep Wrangler and the 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. An eagle eyed reader of JeepNewsNow discovered that this photo is actually of a CRD Jeep Wrangler. It has been known for some time now that a diesel variant of the Wrangler would be sold in Europe, but the question at hand is whether or not a diesel variant will be available within the United States. I know that a couple readers of this site have written me expressing hope that this will be the case. I truly hope that in the near future (read 2007 or 2008 model years) Jeep will wise up and sell a diesel version of the popular Wrangler in the states.

YES, Yes, Yes, YESSSSSS!, I am definitley looking for a Jeep Wrangler 4 door with the diesel engine! Where are they? I see them everwhere else in the world but here in North America (or at least Canada… please!). I feel like a kid in a candy store( I can see it but can’t have it!)
Folks always look to Europe for the latest, we seem to be at least 10 years behind here in North America!
I have been e-mailing, searching and proding Chrysler to please introduce them here. I KNOW they will sell like hot cakes! All my friends and co-workers are now saying they would be interested in it too! What are you waiting for Chrysler? The time is ripe for the plucking!
VW is laughing, as they can’t supply enough diesels to the middle class market!
Diesel is enviromentally friendly, (especially when using biodiesel), lotsa horsepower and torque (especially CRD’s), in most cases run quieter than a gasser. Anyone buying a hybrid is stupid! (Sorry Toyota you make a good product but hybrids are not the answer!)
Why pay for 2 power plants? More for things to go wrong, no one can service except the dealer, and is less efficient and lame compared to diesel, and resale value is way less than a gasser! BEST VALUE and PERFORMANCE…. DIESEL! Enough said!
