If you want to get the Jeep Wrangler Ecodiesel, you might want to visit your local Jeep dealership in Michigan soon to select or reserve your model because it’s reportedly dead next year. The EcoDiesel was already pulled from the Ram lineup for 2023, and it looks like the Jeep Wrangler will be next to lose the option. Jeep dealers recently received an exclusive email detailing a limited production and final edition of the Rubicon Diesel.
Jeep Wrangler Farout Now Open For Orders
Your Jeep dealership in Michigan should now be open for orders of the Farout model, which is the final edition of the Rubicon Diesel. The final edition will include the EcoDiesel engine, which offers excellent torque, a longer range, and good fuel economy. A 3.0L D badge will distinguish this Rubicon model from others with different engines. Some other features include:-Cold Weather Group-Trailer Tow Package-Safety Group-LED Lighting Group-Rubicon high line flare-Black center hood decal-Slush mats-JT Rubicon wheel-Black leather seats with red accents.
The Trailer Tow Package includes a Class II hitch, and the Weather Group means that the vehicle will include heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Most of these options are already available in an a la carte version, but the Farout model is expected to be priced somewhat less than ordering a Rubicon Unlimited with the Farout options.
Other Jeep Vehicles Expected to Lose the EcoDiesel
The email to Jeep dealers specifically mentioned the end of the Rubicon EcoDiesel, but does that mean that the Wrangler Sport S will continue using the diesel? At the moment, this seems highly unlikely, but the next question is whether the Gladiator lineup will also pull the diesel. The Jeep pickup truck only acquired the engine recently for the 2021 model year. It’s no doubt been a draw for truck buyers looking for better fuel economy. If the Gladiator is poised to lose the diesel engine, it will be interesting to see if Jeep will make a Farout special edition for it as well. The idea is not without precedent since a Gladiator Farout concept was presented in the 2021 model year.
Additional Farout Models?
The Gladiator Farout version concept was presented for the 2021 model year, and its purpose was to tout the longer range of the EcoDiesel.
The concept included a 16-foot rooftop tent, a two-inch lift, 17-inch wheels with 37-inch mud tires, a modified Rubicon bumper outfitted with a 12,000-pound Warn winch, and performance suspension upgrades by Fox. The new paint on the Gladiator Farout was called Earl, which is a light blend of gray, blue, and green hues that fit perfectly with outdoor surroundings. That paint color is now available on the 2023 Wrangler. However, the most important information was that the EcoDiesel could travel roughly 25% further on one tank of fuel versus the other engines. That’s pretty sweet, and we’re sad to see it go.
