This is the trend to expect for all vehicles, since there will be no relief in Gov Safety/Crash standards that will keep the weight of the vehicles high, the consumer demands that want bigger vehicles keeping the size and poor aerodynamics up high as well, increasing emission standards that will cut down the efficiency potential of the engines but higher and higher fuel efficiency CAFE standards are still looming.
So, high dollar gold plated motors that can improve efficiency on the margins, like using Turbo's are on the horizon.
Nothing wrong with turbo's and the quality has probably improved that the concern that one day, you'd need to replace the turbo when the car still had a lot of life left in it, which is pretty hefty bill. That might be gone and they last much longer now. Off road and Turbo's isn't always the best combo, but like they said it may be a base engine option for those that get Wranglers but won't be off-roading much.
