Jeep Grand Cherokee Might Get Diesel Engine In The U.S.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The latest rumors say that Sergio Marchionne, who is Fiat-Chrysler’s CEO, has confirmed plans to offer a diesel engine for the Jeep Grand Cherokee in the United States starting with 2013. Although there aren’t many details available at the moment, expect to see a V6 3.0-liter turbodiesel power unit that produces 237 hp (241 PS / 177 kW) and 406 lb.-ft (550 Nm) of torque.

In the European-spec version, this engine can do 8.3 liters / 100 km (28.3 mpg), which is way better than the Pentastar V6 3.6-liter so a diesel option sounds pretty good for those of you that worry about the increasing prices of gas.
