I had a 2007 Grand Cherokee with the turbo diesel. Great vehicle. I don't know why they don't put that engine in more of their lineup. The towing power is great especially considering the mpg. E.g. Put some design attention into the Dakota and put that 3.0 turbo diesel in it and you'd have a hell of a truck.

I work for a Jeep dealer and we've been under a strong assumption that this will be with the 8 speed automatic. as well as the 3.6l having the 8 speed offering also. and you forgot about the previous GC that had a 3.0L diesel

I want a manual trans.

What about an 8 speed trans? I know that cars with more torque then this diecel have an 8 speed and Chrysler uses an 8 speed on the 300.

Already in Sale here in S. Korea. Starting to get more popular, but too expensive, Laredo starts at 64k and overland starts close to 80k. Many other competitors for that kind of price.

Awesome!!!
Matthew van der Linde Dec 08, 2012
This is already on sale in europe and its a strong engine, quite economical too
Jimmy Williams Dec 08, 2012
I think the initial rating is 28 mpg mixed; even if it goes down a little, how awesome.
David Parenti Dec 08, 2012
That's a load of torque. This thing should get pretty good MPG

It'll look much more appealing without all the tape over the lights.

I really hope this isn't the actual update :( I'm not feeling the lights or grill at all! Current front end is much better

Justin McLeod Dec 08, 2012
I like these headlights a lot, they should have kept them!
