my understanding is the 3.0 TD is a few years away even for the USA. Honestly the 3.6 petrol with an 8 speed auto in a Rubicon would be an awesome package. I might be biased but I've been really happy with my fuel economy and the way it drives after years of driving TD four wheel drives. Maybe the mega issue I had with my previous TD 200 series Cruiser put me off. I hope the 3.0 TD comes out here though as it would be an awesome wrangler with that engine.

But ?

"But we won’t get the complete package as some new technology – including a new 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and overhauled 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel – either isn’t available or has been ruled out for Australia."

"Instead we will get an updated version of the current Pentastar 3.6-litre petrol V6 and a new 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine to replace the current 2.8-litre oil-burner."

Just remember to be careful in the car park at the shopping centre!

Well that sucks...

I guess I'll be keeping my JK until it dies, then looking for something else. I only want a JL Wrangler with the 3.0v6 CRD or a Hemi.
