Yes you are right ,but they could do what MB did and put a small 5L twin turbo in it ? You,s have to get over that its not a USA motor that will come for it and go with the times ! It will be good for jeep to have a v8 diesel so be happy

X2 on that.

The mentality of "we must have a V6 or V8 for smoothness"is the reason that the sewing machine 3.8L v6 was/is in the wrangler.
I also think those that want something smooth should buy a buick or a linclon and leave Jeeps alone.
quit pulling our Jeeps downn to your level.
It has taken me a lot of hours to make a Great Jeep out of my good 99 TJ.

I wouldn't know where to start on a JK.

You mean like my Liberty has in it?

I am still hoping for someone to total it out so I can pull the drivetrain for projects....

Well they did the same thing with harleys. Cost me $3000 to get the dumb thing to sound and run like it should.

I know it's kind of apples to oranges, but the I6 4.2 in the trailblazers is sewing machine smooth. Inline engines can be smooth. if they can do it in a gasser, I bet they can do it in a diesel. I'd love a small 4 or 6 cyl diesel in a factory Jeep (Wrangler).

International built a tractor with a v-8 diesel. It was a huge flop. I myself have worked around and on diesel engines. If you notice your big v-8's are in mostly industrial equipment. Maybe we need a truck driver to share some input. V-8 lack torque, not all but most, that inlines have. There's really no argument. Its just not practical.
