Get ready to spend an extra $4,500 if the oil-burning version of Jeep’s 2014 Grand Cherokee is on your to-buy list.

Pricing for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee unveiled during this year’s Detroit Auto Show leaked through an enthusiast forum today, revealing price increases for the 2014 model year. The dealer pricing sheet also revealed that the diesel engine will cost a $4,500 premium over the gasoline V6. AutoGuide asked a Chrysler representative to confirm the pricing, but didn’t receive a response.

The 3.0-liter turbo diesel will be available in the Limited four-wheel drive trim for $43,090 including delivery. Pricing for the two-wheel drive models wasn’t listed. It also isn’t clear if the diesel engine will be offered exclusively on four-wheel drive models, but the leaked information did reveal that on the Summit trim, the diesel engine will cost $500 more.

The Grand Cherokee model range will climb in price for the 2014 model year including the range-topping SRT-8 model which will start at $63,990 according to the leaked information. That’s a $2,700 hike over last year, but SRT CEO Ralph Gilles promised during the 2013 Detroit Auto Show that it will be “one of the quickest vehicles we’ve ever made at SRT.”

The base model increases as well, but by a smaller $1,600 margin. Then again, that money will probably mean a lot more to buyers aiming to spend the $29,790 base price compared to the SRT model’s 63,990 starting price. Complete pricing before options and a $995 delivery fee are available below.

Laredo 4X2 – $28,795
Laredo E 4X2 – $30,495
Limited 4X2 – $35,795
Overland 4X2 – $42,995
Summit 4X2 – $47,995
Laredo 4X4 – $30,795
Laredo E 4X4 – $32,495
Limited 4X4 – $37,795
Overland 4X4 – $45,995
Summit 4X4 – $50,995
SRT 4X4 – $62,995
