    Who will wait to get an EcoDiesel? Are they planning on coming out with the EcoDiesel at the same time as the normal 3.7L?

    Holding out for the ED, I just read that it becomes available in 2020.

    When the 3.0L EcoDiesel Gladiator arrives in 2020, it will boast the most torque of any Jeep — at 442 lb-ft of torque.

    But, the diesel Gladiator won’t reach the full 7650 lbs tow capacity of the 3.6L Pentastar Gladiator. It’s expected to tow approximately 500 pounds less.

    And the reason for that is with more power comes more need for cooling. The larger air cooler unit on the EcoDiesel engine cuts down some of the front airflow coming through the grille, which results in reduced cooling area, which results in less tow capacity.

    well that's kind of a kick in the ass. Pay hefty premium for the E.D. to only be able to tow less.

    how much better fuel economy and how long would it take to break even? In PA diesel is considerably more expensive than gas(of course that last part is region dependent)

    If that's accurate, it would make me think twice about the ED.
