Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel Bound For European Market

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 …
