That's what I really wanted and had also heard that they might be available in the Wrangler for 2014. Unfortunately they decided to put it in the Grand Cherokee and see how the market accepts it before they consider putting it in any different models.
Dee has a V-6 turbo diesel in her ML320, it's essentially the same engine they are putting in the Grand Cherokee since it was developed jointly by MB and Chrysler. It has great power, is very quiet and gets 30+ mpg on the highway.
However, the other thing I heard from the Jeep sales manager is that 2014 will be the last year for the solid front axle in the Wrangler. They will supposedly go with an IFS type front axle in 2015, but I am always a little dubious of the accuracy of info like this. We'll see.
