What comes to mind when someone says "diesel SUV"? Most likely something German like the BMW X5, Audi Q7, or Mercedes-Benz ML and GL. How about Jeep? No? Well it's time to blow your mind. Since the early 2000's, Jeep has offered at least one vehicle with the option of a diesel engine. First it was the Liberty, followed by the last-generation Grand Cherokee. The 2014 Grand Cherokee is the latest model to offer a diesel engine. The new EcoDiesel V6 packs 420 pound-feet of torque, while getting over 30 MPG on the Highway. Very impressive, to say the least.
Jim Morrison, the director of Jeep marketing, gives us a walkaround.
