Arg! I guess that's true. I was hoping for more like a winter release.

Re: 2012 North American Diesel?

Hopefully they make it worth the wait and bring it with the new 8 speed ZF transmission.

Re: 2012 North American Diesel?

I would say that the CRD and new 8sp will be released together, as this gearbox is scheduled for the 2013 models. Being that the CRD uses the same gearbox as the V6, it would be the smart way to go for Jeep.

Re: 2012 North American Diesel?

Just for interest, we already have it here in Oz with the 5 speed, and it outperforms the Hemi in 0-60 accel. Not bad!

Re: 2012 North American Diesel?

If I recall correctly, the CRD was about $3,000 over the price of our Overland with the Hemi engine.

As WKOverlandII noted, the low end torque makes the CRD fun to drive. We have a 5,500 lb travel trailer so the CRD was a better choice for us. Plus it's nice when driving up the mountain passes without having to drop down 1 or 2 gears at high altitude.

Re: 2012 North American Diesel?

In Australia the CRD and Hemi are the same price. The Hemi and CRD are a $5,000 option over the V6.
Mine will be delivered tomorrow......WOOHOO

Smile Re: 2012 North American Diesel?

Hello to all members, Would anyone know what type of fuel pump will be in the 2013 JGC diesel if any when it comes out. Also, could anyone tell me about the fuel pump that is now in the models over in Europe. I know that VW has a problem with their diesel models and their HPFP, I think its a CP3 pump. Any info that can be given would be appreciated, I am looking to purchase a diesel model when it comes here. Thank You
Roadmaster45

Re: 2012 NA Diesel?

Totally agree with your thinking on this.
