Diesel TJ

i thought you guys might find this interesting. my dad works with this lady whos husband works at the Ford Truck plant here in Louisville, KY. anyway, rumor has it that ford will be introduceing 2 new diesel motors. one for the new F100 series and one for the F150, both designed and built by cummins and Navistar International. the one if the F100 is supposed to be a 3.2L inline 6 which will be going in the proposed 09 Bronco III, and the motor thats going in the F150 is a 4.5L V8 Sequential turbo.

anyway my point is, there's new small diesels coming out, and im VERY confident that these will work their way into TJ conversions. considering the motors themselfs arnt too big they'll be fairly light and will squeeze inbetween the frame rails and will be a nice available alternative to the Cummins 4BT or whatever its called.

That was mentioned in Petersons Off Road, the current Larriat (sp) diesels that Ford uses could not meet the 2007 epa requirements and were dropped.

I'll tell you right now that although it's a 3.2, it's a diesel and it'll be far from light. Sure it may fit, but plan on getting some relatively high rate front springs.

Not to mention the real relevence of the discontinuance of the Liberty CRD. It is not that there is no Diesel in a Jeep. By their own words it was an experiment. Dipping a toe in the water so to speak. Now we can expect some of the diesel techology being pioneered at Mercedes-Daimler to make it to the Jeep. Their new Bluetec diesel will surely make it to the Commander if nothing else.

It is a shame diesel has not had a better run here in the states. There really are some benefits over gas powered vehicles...

JEEPLESS... :(

the f-100 is supposed to replace the ranger in the very very small truck market, and if a ranger can support a 3.2L diesel, im sure a jeep wouldent have a problem

I have been reading a lot about new bio-diesel engines, and I like the idea. You can make a fuel out of pretty much anything now. Granted it had its advantages and disadvantages, but even straight diesel is a good idea. I am looking for a 4BT for my CJ. I think that adding a diesel is the key to the completion of my Jeep.

If it's the same 3.2 inline 6 that's in the Diesel Volvo XC60, then it is actually a ****ed up design...

Finally paid off...

The inline 6 is a Cummins design but there is no Navistar anything any longer. Ford flipped them the bird with a huge lawsuit over waranty claims on both the 6.0 and the 6.4 and severed the business relationship.

I hope Ford can bounce back from the ill reputation from those two engines. Time will tell.

well their new engine seems to be interesting sounding, the Ford Powerstroke 6.7L twin sequential turbo Scorpion

on a side note, i believe this thread needs to me moved - now that it has no place in the TJ tech forum
