The perfect mid-sized SUV gets better!
The biggest change for the refreshed Grand Cherokee is a new*turbocharged*3.0-liter V-6*diesel*enginem, named EcoDiesel, which joins the lineup with 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. It brings with it a best-in-class tow rating of 7,400 pounds (matching the HEMI V-8's rating), and a 30 mpg highway rating.
This would be a great entry level engine for a light duty RAM 1500 as well. I feel the auto manufacturers are slowly entering diesels into the market before flooding it once everyone's accepted them and the fuel price goes down. This engine in a 4 door Wrangler would make an awesome rock crawler too!
