A diesel version was added to the Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup in the US

Apparently Porsche will bring their new Cayenne Diesel to the US next year, but this company is not the only one that will sell diesel-SUVs in the US. It seems that Chrysler Group will also add a diesel version to its Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup and it will be available for the US and Canada. The model will be developed at the plant in Detroit, where now work 2.890 people and where another 1.100 jobs will be available. There is no information on the engine, but we believe it will be the same with its European counterpart.
The latter features a 3.0-liter V6 CRD common-rail diesel engine that is able to deliver 190 horsepower and 440 Nm of torque and also 241 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque. In both states of tune, the power is being sent to the wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission.
The one that delivers 190 horsepower is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 10.2 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 191 km/h. The other one, the 241 horsepower model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.2 seconds and can reach a top speed of 202 km/h.
