Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel Bound For European Market

The Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel wasn’t long for this world in its previous iteration, but the oil-burning Jeep will soldier on in Europe, where diesels enjoy massive popularity.

Bowing at the Geneva Auto Show in March, the Grand Cherokee CRD will likely use a version of Chrysler’s previous diesel engine which made 218 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque. Despite the highly touted Pentastar V6 and HEMI V8 sold here, it’s highly unlikely that we’ll see the diesel make a return.

    It´s the newly developed 3 litre V6 A 630 DOHC from VM Motori that will be under the hood of European Jeeps. It´s rated 250 hp and has a good torque.
    Chrysler 300 will have it too.

    Fiat/Chrysler just bought a 50% stake in the company( 11 of Febr)

    A good engine even for US I think …
