Out of Gas!
« on: April 05, 2011, 01:52:34 pm »
Let's make this simple:  Name as many domestically available jeep models as possible that do not use a gas burning engine and name that engine.  Attention to detail on this one will get you the big internet cookie!

(Example mid-eighties XJs were available with a Renault 2.1 liter turbo diesel).

Military FC's (M677 - 678 - 679) had the Cerlist 3 cyl. diesel that created 75 hp

2007 Grand Cherokee had the Bosch Developed Mercedes 3.0 Diesel but not sure if sold domestically

Good job on the 3 cylinder Cerlist diesel in the M676, M677, M678, and M679.

I can think of two more that meet the "no gas" criteria.

Are you saying it came with that engine?  Cause that's what I'd expect from a station wagon driver...

That's kinder than what we normally call XJs down here.  Whenever a new one would join the Orlando Jeep Club, someone would always say, "Awesome, another garbage truck..."

The owner of course, being new and afraid of stepping into an argument with an established member, typically would look confused but remain quiet.

And then on the next trail ride they'd find out why.  As members picked up trash at lunch stops or places where everyone stops to watch others, someone would always drag the trash bags to the back gates of all the XJs.

Good luck with that.  I'm going to assume that from a distance of 1300 miles, I am safe.

Pretty soon, we'll have to have metal detectors and pat-downs before our meetings!

You know a surprising amount of the membership would probably fail those pat downs and metal detectors right,  Our meeting can be described as a "armed camp" sometimes.  This makes me comfortable that I associate with my kind of people.  ;D


Just so I am not completely off topic,  which I am, There was a diesel available in '61-'65 CJ-5s,  it was a Perkins 192 I4 diesel engine I think,  need to goggle that.  I also think that in the 1940 or early 5s there was a factory available kit to make the old 134 flat head gas motor into a diesel,  but I don't know if it was sold.  I am also shocked that now one spouted out all the late model jeeps that have diesel options.

Jeremy,

Dave asked for "Domestically" sold models. There have been numerous models produced and sold abroad with diesel motors.
Jeep hasn't taken advantage of promoting and producing them here in the U.S...I personally think they would do well.

The Perkins diesel powered CJ-5 is indeed one of the last non-gasoline engined jeeps that I was looking for.

The other that I can think of would be the DJ-5E which, I understand, was powered by a bank of batteries for inner city use.

Funny, I forgot to comment on this statement.  The Ocala Jeep Club is probably the same way, except you wouldn't know it at our meetings since they are held at a Sheriff's substation, where our permits for CCW are of no use since police facilities are off limits for concealed carry.
