Jeep Fantasy

PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

This Q/A Topic: Jeep Fantasy – Vehicles and Parts


• This event is for us to hear what future products you want us to work on – vehicles or parts that you can’t live without!

• Direct your questions and comments to the JeepEngineers team

• Let the JeepEngineers team supply the answers as needed

• Keep all questions and comments on topic and related to the Jeep Brand. Off-topic posts run the risk of being removed by forum moderators

• Limit each post to one question or comment. This makes it a lot easier for us to manage during the session and a lot easier for readers to digest afterwards.

• Review existing posts to avoid repeat questions.

• Questions aren’t answered in order of post; you’ll need to allow some time for us to respond.

• There is no need to repost a question. At the end of the session, we check for unanswered posts. An answer will be posted in reply IF the question is on topic and is not redundant.

• If you have something to say to one another we ask that you communicate via PM or within another thread discussion.

• We can’t answer questions regarding Specific Dealer concerns or Future Products

• We’ll do our best to help, but we are not always able to diagnose specific vehicle issues over the internet


Go ahead and post your questions and comments!!


Edit: If you would like to share your ideas after the thread is closed you may go to the following site: https://www.chryslerllc.com/en/chrys...motive_listens

As an FYI, when you access the survey using the URL contained in this post Chrysler LLC will know that you were referred to the survey from the 03.25.08 JeepForum.com Engineering Event. We’re not promising special treatment, and This fact doesn't give any more weight to what you have to say as an individual; however they will have a very good idea of who’s taking time to participate and where the traffic is coming from.

I've seen a couple diesel concepts from jeep and tested the production models but would really like to see some more productions diesels. Is there anything in the works for a wrangler diesel? Those are great.

Also just to add it in...One day the gladiator would be nice to own. hint hint.

I think you should put diesel engines in the new wranglers. Also it would be nice if there was a kit or something to make swapping said diesel into an older jeep like a YJ becasue swapping a 4BT isnt easy.

To help compete with all the other small pickups on the market, I think the JT would be a huge success for Jeep. Make a 2 door, and 4 door, maybe even a extended cab(or dually, who knows). Also, diesel Wranglers and new Diesel engines.

Are you looking for a car? Or a downsized Jeep with off-road capability?

Any upgrades to the current sound system? I have a '07 Lexus ES350 with the Mark Levinson sound system and a '07 Impala SS with the Bose system. The Boston system in my '07 Hemi Grnd Cherokee can't keep up.

a car would be a good seller... people are selling SUV's for fuel effecient cars now adays...

however... a diesel wrangler would give good MPGs also.. and would work awesome off road, unlike a car...

diesel wranglers for us off-roaders, and a fuel efficient car for soccer moms... double seller, and cover the best of both worlds...

Hmm, seems to be a trend here... we are here to listen and remember, we can't comment on future product of course.

We are listening though !

Is power or economy more important in a diesel ?

There was some speculation that said Jeep is planning to offer diesel conversion kit for Jeeps. Is there any truth to that? Could you shine some light on this matter?

Thanks,

We're always looking at diesel, the issue of course is emissions and cost it takes to meet the standards. We have to always look at what the customer is willing to pay, and if there are enough customers to make it "worth the trip" so to speak.
