Re: Diesel Grand Cherokee Coming to US!

I would trade for the diesel right now, the fuel efficiency and don't forget most diesels have a longer life than gasoline engines. Sign me up.

Yeah but nowadays we're talking about 700,000 instead of 500,000 miles.

With proper maintenance an engine should outlast everything else on the vehicle.

I too might have bought the diesel had it been available...but like I said the real question will be how much it costs.

it may be more effecient but that effeciency doesn't save you any money, so it's a moot point IMO.

I get a new car every few years or so and never more than 80K miles. I could care less if a diesel will go 11ty billion more miles than a gasser. I will never know/care.

OK? Then why are you posting on this topic if you don't care?

cause it's fun to argue about meaningless things on the internet. cause I am killing time at work on a slow day. acuse I know it makes you diesel freaks all mad. etc...

I don't think i am alone though. The JGC diesel won't sell for crap in the US IMO.

Re: Diesel Grand Cherokee Coming to US!

Alot of diesels sold in canada back in 2007-2008 as diesel is cheaper here then regular gas by 5-10%.

Re: Diesel Grand Cherokee Coming to US!

here is another thing to think about: range

I am about to take my wk2 offroading for the first time this weekend. It would be nice to have longer legs...

I probably would have gotten the diesel if it was available. In fact, if the LR4 had a diesel (in the US), I might have bought a different car....i actually even looked at the toureg (very briefly, more curiosity than anything else), because of their TDI engine.

Anyways, the Hemi seems great, as long as i don't look at the mpg display! Just put on new shoes (dumped the Michellin Tours), we will see how she handles this weekend.

Cheers,

Chris

I understand you're just arguing for the fun, which is fine. Just for the record, I enjoy doing that myself.

But it's effeciency does save you money and since you keep your trucks for 70,000 miles, you'll be saving yourself $2,800 over the V6 and $6,300 on the Hemi.
Are you willing to throw 150 ftlbs of torque and $1,400 dollars over the V6 Pentastar right down the drain?

And I'm definitely no Diesel nut. In fact I've never owned one other than our Peterbilt.
I'm pretty surprised at the actual #s and the savings displayed.

That math you had before isn't accurate for me ( and the other poster ) though. Diesel is a lot more expensive,at least 50 cents) and with the regulations and laws for diesel, there will be a premium on the sticker also.

I would be up for a diesel if was worth it, but it just isn't right now. The extra range would be nice but it's not a dealbreaker for me. Most malls and shopping centers (where 99% of the JGC's live ) have gas stations nearby.

Thanks for getting my lighthearted take on internet arguing.

Re: Diesel Grand Cherokee Coming to US!

Clean diesels now put out less carbon monoxide and overall less pollution than gas engines.
Again, here in Canada, diesel SUVs out sell their gas equivalent models; and diesel is cheaper than 87 octane and readily available.
