As Stellantis is preparing to concentrate on more electric vehicles, it is phasing out some of its EcoDiesel models. We have already reported on Ram’s decision to stop offering an EcoDiesel ending with the 2023 Ram 1500. Jeep is also issuing a ‘Last Call’ for its Wrangler EcoDiesel. Jeep is marking the occasion with an exclusive limited-edition 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon FarOut EcoDiesel. Surprisingly, Jeep will still offer the Gladiator with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 in addition to the standard 3.6-liter V-6.
“At Jeep, we are always listening to our customers and driven to improve on our legendary 4x4 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 Wrangler EcoDiesel has been around since 2020 and provided first-rate performance. It has 442 lb.-ft. of torque which was highly desired in the off-roading community. However, since then, Jeep has delivered even more capable Wranglers. The popular Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 kicks out 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. Plus, now the electrified Wrangler Rubicon 4xe delivers 375 horsepower and an incredible 470 lb.-ft of instant torque. The Wrangler 4xe is rated at 49 MPGe and 21 miles of all-electric range.
The Jeep Wrangler will still offer four powertrain choices:
- 2.0-liter turbo
- 3.6-liter V-6
- 6.4-liter V-8
- 4xe plug-in hybrid
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler FarOut EcoDiesel edition can be ordered through November of 2022. It will begin arriving at Jeep dealers in the fourth quarter of 2022.
