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.

My dealer in the UK said it would be the Mercedes diesel in the Grand Cherokee for the 2011 model.
