CRD coming for 2012?

I know there has been no official word unless I totally missed something, BUT.. On my way in to work Friday (I work downtown Detroit) I passed a semi carrier loaded with WK2's. I was paying a little extra attention as I am not an owner of one just yet but each one on the truck had CRD badges, at least the ones I could see the rear of. Could this just be a load of test vehicles or has anyone heard something else? They were all headed east on I-94 towards Dearborn.

Were they right hand drive ?
Europe and Australia all have them, might just be taking them to the boat.

Agreed they were likely headed for export.

The "handed-ness" would't tell you anything. Right-hand drive could be bound for Australia or the UK, but continental Europe uses left-hand drive like we do in the states.

Re: CRD coming for 2012?

For years diesel Jeeps have been spotted for export going down the road on car carriers.

Re: CRD coming for 2012?

I was under the impression that all right hand drive Chrysler product was assembled in Graz Austria, near the German border. I know for a fact that my 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited CRD was, and also my 2008 Grand Cherokee Overland CRD, that I have just sold to make way for our new beast -now five days old and 455kms on the clock.

The new WK2 Diesel is a definite head on competitor to Audi Q7, VW Touareg, Mercedes ML and BMW X5. Runs rings around Toyota Prado and the Jeep is least expensive, by up to $30k in some cases. It is just a shame they cannot screw enough together to cope with the excessive demand. The adaptive cruise control is a stunning feature making highway cruising very relaxing. The hydralift air suspension provides great ride quality with nice precise handling, as well as the automatic levelling when towing a heavy load or loading up the rear storage.

I am "over the moon" with our new GC and with fuel economy already around 8Lt / 100km (34mpg) and expected to get better as we put a few more miles on it, it is definitely smiles all round.

Cheers Chris

Assembly of export Grand Cherokee's in Graz ended with the 2010 model year. All WK2's are assembled at Jefferson North.

Re: CRD coming for 2012?

So, the diesel will be available in 2012 as a 2013 model and will it have the 8 speed transmission?
