We have seen The EcoDiesel engine before on the wrangler. The powerful diesel powertrain benefits variable geometry water-cooled turbocharger, forged steel crankshaft, aluminum alloy pistons, compression ratio of 16.5:1 and lighter block. The power transfers to both axles with an 8-speed automatic transmission with new gear changing algorithm.
