I didn’t care until I was forced to drive one. Now that it “involves” me I think I’m allowed to have an opinion. In my best Soup Nazi voice………. “No Jeep wave for you”!I don’t get truck people whose dong need to haul or tow things, super car owners, drag racers, or sell revolver people. Good thing their enjoyment of such things doesn’t involve me getting it.
I finally put a real top on my TJ a month or so ago. Feels weird.
It’s a completely impractical vehicle, rides rough, gets terrible mpg, wanders all over the road, has many quirks. Yet is insanely fun in the snow and off road. I’m a complete addict and have been since I first rode in one when I was 4 years old.
Eco diesel in a newer jeep only 24 MPG.
That MPG is Oldsmobile 350 diesel MPG actually a little less.
That eco diesel makes 2x more HP and 2X more TQ than the Oldsmobile though.
I would bet a revamp of some of that power could possibly get you a 40+MPG diesel Jeep
The diesel wranglers in Europe and Australia average 42mpg equivalent... Everybody in america is in someones pocket. Can't get too many people used to good mileage. Might crash the economy
