2014 Grand Cherokee Diesel vs 2014 4runner

What is so interesting is that the 4runner still will not have a diesel and will still have an "ancient" 5 speed automatic.

I may lean towards the Diesel Grand cherokee but i am wondering, how come the 4unner wont have a diesel?

I believe this should be posted in a 4runner forum to get a good answer. If I had to guess it would be because I don't believe Toyota even offers a diesel anything in the US.

I am sure a lot of us would hump a Toyota Land Cruiser / Prado / Hilux with a diesel engine. But you are asking the right questions on the wrong bulletin board.

Jeep bought up all the available diesels.

Pure speculation on my part, but I think Toyota has decided to meet its CAFE requirements using the Hybrid Synergy drive rather than diesels.

The battery of my friends hybrid Accord just failed, 6k to replace it almost the value of the car! That hybrid lost him money over the life compared to a non hybrid.

In addition to that, they have to store that dead battery in a huge battery graveyard. Gee, let me think about this. The car that is supposed to be ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY turns out to be the opposite. Who woulda thunk?

Yeah, but think of the benefits. When it breaks something, you just tap the battery and use a couple scratch rods to weld it back together...

Yeah, I'm with you guys. If Toyota offered a diesel 4Runner I wouldn't even be on this forum!

Have you seen the new 4Runner? One word (IMHO): UGLY. I think of the new look as a beefed up FJ Cruiser, only uglier
