    Agreed!! And if I am correct, isn’t part of the system on the bottom of the Jeep?! Where it could be susceptible to all sorts of things out on the trail?

    For sure. Honestly I think it's why people were turned off of the 2.0t. I got a survey and an email asking why I ordered the 3.6 from the factory instead of buying the 2.0t in off the lot in December. There were no 3.6's available in my tri-state area. I think now they're switching the e-torque onto the 3.6 to try and capture back some CAFE mileage numbers.

    Be nice if Gecko chimed in - he's the authority on this stuff

    Yup - exactly. Although Mel's running the 2.0t on their RWB '19 with the coilovers and he's not exactly easy on stuff....

    I consider it something else to cause a lot of expense, down the road. Like if it gets old and starts to fail. Just another complication I can live without.

    I wouldn’t say, “unfortunately.” At least you have one.

    Diesel option? In the one picture it says it will be available but on the power train option pics there isn’t an option. I contacted a salesman to order a 2020 and he said the diesel is not an option. I’m trying to hold out as it’s 100% the engine option I want. Wish there was more solid info.

    I’m pretty confident you will see a diesel option, this year.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
