Diesel option now available for JL Wrangler?


Staff member
Our friends over at JLWranglerForums.com posted this recently (yep, I am blatantly copying their awesome info)...


100% Confirmed - "26" order code = 2019 JL 3.0L V6 CRD (diesel) with ESS + 8HP75 8-speed automatic transmission! No ETA on release date.

Now about that mysterious code "22" ... Could it be a 6-speed manual CRD? (We have thus far been unable to confirm). It may be wishful thinking but we have our fingers crossed. One thing is for sure - it is unlikely to be a special edition model since it would not be on all 3 trim levels.


Current ordering status of various trims as of 9/18/18.


  • Green is wide open ordering, maximum availability for plant production capacity for the allocation period.
  • Yellow means order banks are filling up and will soon reach maximum (Red) and close
  • Red means capacity has been reached and orders are closed until the following month when order banks re-open (typically the 2nd Thursday of each month, give or take a day or two).
  • October banks open on the 10th
  • November banks open on the 9th

Ohhhh man. Now that is an upgrade. I hope the specs look good and they don’t throw out a turd diesel.

Any ideas on who will make the diesel? Cummins?
