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.

NOTE THE NEW TRIMS CODE 22, 25 & 26!



  • 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?

They'll have a goldmine on their hands if they do this and it's not a turd. Think of all the re-power potential.

How's the reliability of the diesel in the Grand Cherokee and the Ram 1500? Any known issues with them?
There’s talks of the early models cam sprockets not being machined and pressed properly, thus walking off and causing catastrophic failure.

But, with the light duty loads a Wrangler will see, on top of having a lot more practice building the engine, we may have a great engine on our hands.
