End Of An Era: Jeep Ends Wrangler EcoDiesel

Jeep is ending the availability of the EcoDiesel in the Wrangler, but it doesn't end without the announcement of a limited edition Wrangler.
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon FarOut edition featuring 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine ends the EcoDiesel era in the Wrangler.

Jeep is marking the end of Wrangler EcoDiesel production with the exclusive limited-edition Wrangler Rubicon FarOut.  Originally introduced for the 2020 model year, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon EcoDiesel with 442 pound-feet of torque was the most capable Wrangler to date.

“At Jeep, we are always listening to our customers and driven to improve on our legendary 4×4 capability,” said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “The Wrangler Rubicon FarOut special edition is our tip of the hat to the EcoDiesel technology on Wrangler.”

The Jeep Wrangler will remain available with four powertrain choices: 2.0-liter turbo, 3.6-liter V-6, 6.4-liter V-8, and 4xe plug-in hybrid. The Jeep Gladiator will continue to offer the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 in addition to the standard 3.6-liter V-6.
