We recently covered that Ram is commemorating nearly a decade of EcoDiesel production by giving customers a final opportunity to order its Ram 1500 EcoDiesel model for the 2023 model year before production concludes in January 2023. It seems Jeep is following in Ram’s footsteps, though the news has only been revealed to dealers at the moment. Dubbed the Jeep Wrangler Farout, it’s being described as the “Limited production final edition of Rubicon Diesel.”

Posted on the JLWranglerForums, an e-mail was reportedly sent to Jeep dealers detailing the JL Jeep Wrangler Rubicon EcoDiesel Farout, which shares the name of a Jeep Gladiator concept from 2020, which as also powered by the 3.0L inline-six diesel engine. The wording of the dealer e-mail may indicate that there’s still an opening for the Wrangler Sport S to continue with its diesel, though that seems unlikely. Sadly, with the direction the industry is going, it’s only a matter of time before the EcoDiesel is removed from the Gladiator as well, even though the pickup only just acquired the engine.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon EcoDiesel Farout: Details

The outside of the Jeep Wrangler Farout features a gloss black grille, LED lighting, and a black hood graphic with “3.0 Diesel” written on it. The vehicle also features body-colored High Line fender flares, two-color five-spoke wheels, and the Trailer Tow Package with its Class II hitch. Meanwhile, the inside of the vehicle features black leather seats with contrasting red accents, slush mats, the Cold Weather Group with heated front seats and steering wheel, and driver safety aids. Pricing will likely be around the $65,000 range as one can play with the Jeep configurator for the 2023 Rubicon Unlimited and equip most of these options.

Since we see an end-of-life Farout special for the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, we may see one for the Gladiator when its time comes. Hopefully, that’ll come as a production version of the Gladiator Farout concept. But we’ll have to wait and see if that comes to pass. So, if you want a diesel JL Wrangler, better check in with your local dealer as soon as possible.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Ford Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
