Jeep Standard Gas vs Auto Diesel

Need some help ya'll

I'm looking at getting a new Jeep Wangler when the 2018 comes out. I had a Wangler with the 4.0 5 speed and loved it. I had thought I would get the new 3.6 with the 6 speed standard transmission for better gas mileage and off road capabilities and it's a Jeep so it should be standard. I recently found out they will be finally releasing a diesel which is expected to be the Cummings EcoDiesel. I also am a big fan of diesel and also have a Duarmax (Sorry dodge guys but not sorry) I would love to have a Wrangler with a Diesel engine again for the better mileage, reliability, and the low end torque for off road and pulling. However, from what I understand it will only have an auto transmission. So the question is which do you think would be better. The gas engine with the standard transmission OR the diesel engine with the auto transmission? Thanks for the help.

Actually my opinion is old school with respect to an old local mechanic where I grew up that swapped mercedes 2.4 diesels and auto tranys into old military surplus jeeps for desert scroungers to crawl around the mojave in....

I wouldn't buy anything the first year it's out. After that I'd go diesel.
