I just traded in a BMW 335d on my Jeep. I loved the powertrain on the BIMMER 3.0 Liter twin turbo diesel with 265 HP and 425 pound feet.
It also revved pretty good for a diesel, although I can say that I enjoy revving the pentastar, I missed that with the BMW (although my 911 still cures the itch best!!).
I miss the swell of torque that the BMW produced, and it would be a great compliment to the Rubicon if Jeep was able to design a similarly good diesel powertrain.
The BMW would see 29 MPG in the city regularly and I once got 43 MPG from Reno to Vegas - and I was going 80 most of that trip. It is a 3900 pound sedan so the Jeep would be almost the same weight....
I would certainly consider a Wrangler Diesel if it were like that...
2012 Wrangler Rubicon- OME 2.5 HD lift, adjustable lower control arms, Adjustable sway bar links, AEV rear bumper/carrier, Rugged Ridge XHD front, Hella Rallylight upgrade, MORE skids, 315/70 DuraTracs on stock wheels for the winter, working on my summer setup.
