The diesel Grand Cherokee has been slated to make a comeback to the North American market for the very first time since 2008.

It has been said that many off-road enthusiasts have beseeched diesel power-train options from a very long time since diesel engine’s can deliver extra torque output and fuel-efficiency, which has forced the automaker to make the decision to reintroduce the diesel variant of Grand Cherokee in North America.

Technical Specifications

Under the bonnet, the upcoming 2013 Grand Cherokee diesel variant will be propelled by a standard 3.0-liter V-6 turbocharged engine supplied from Fiat. It is expected that the new mill is nearly 10-percent more forceful than the retiring unit, producing 241-horsepower and maximum torque of 406 pound-feet.

The new 3.0-liter diesel engine will be made optional on all model variants including Laredo, Overland, and Limited. All those consumers who don’t require so much output power are expected to be offered with a lower output edition of the same engine, which will be able to produce 190-hp and 324 pound-ft of peak torque, and it will be provided as a standard option on Laredo model.

Fuel Economy

Inspite of its capability to produce extra power, the latest 3.0-liter engine is estimated to return a better fuel mileage rating than the retiring diesel engine, enhancing 17-percent to nearly 8.3 liter/100 kilometer or around 28 miles per gallon for combined driving.


The pricing information of the forthcoming Grand Cherokee 2013 Diesel model hasn’t been disclosed by the company yet, so stay tuned to get more updates about its pricing.
