300 Horsepower Hurricane Turbo 4 May = No 3.0L Diesel for the JL Wrangler


Staff member
Just read an article on Jalopnik by Andrew Collins and it was in regards to the all new 300 Horsepower Hurricane Turbo 4-Cylinder motor and how because it's supposed to be the "fuel savings" option for the all new JL Wrangler, it could mean there may not be a 3.0L diesel option as many had hoped - or at least, not from the get go. Here's the quote...

And this engine is apparently just the “fuel-saving” engine option for the next Wrangler. That could be pretty righteous, considering the current Wrangler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 only burps out 285 horsepower and maxes out at a mediocre 21 MPG. I’m guessing that means “no diesel,” at least in the onset of the next-gen Wrangler.


So, what do you guys think? Would you still prefer a diesel over the Hurricane Turbo 4?
